The Karratha Kats remain undefeated at the top of the table but the Wolves are keeping the pressure on after both recorded wins at the weekend.

The Kats defeated cross-town rivals the Falcons 12. 12 (84) to 6.13 (49) in Millars Well, but didn’t have it all their own way.

While still undefeated in the league, the Falcons did hand the Kats reserves side their first loss.

The Falcons won 8.5 (53) to 8.13 (61) on the back of four majors from Edward Mcvea.

Out at Windy Ridge a third-term blowout led to a comfortable win for the Wickham Wolves over the Sharks.

After a close first half the Wolves booted six goals in the third quarter to win 13.13 (91) to 7.5 (47).

Sharks forward Stephen Grigg bagged five goals for the game.

The Sharks reserves kept in touch with the top four, defeating the Wolves reserves 7.8 (50) to 6.7 (43).

In Hedland the Rovers upset the Swans with a 16.6 (102) to 10.8 (68) victory.

The Port side also won the reserves match 11.11 (77) to 9.5 (59).

After six rounds the Kats and Wolves are clear at the top of the league table, with the Swans, Sharks and Rovers battling it out for the final two places.

The Kats sit on top of the reserves table too, four points clear of the Rovers and eight ahead of the third-placed Falcons.

The Wolves, Swans and Sharks are all on eight points.

Wolves forward Claude Taylor leads the league gola kickers with 20 majors, included two last weekend.

Brent McDonald from the Kats slotted one goal to lead the reserves list with 14, one ahead of stablemate Shaun Derschow.
