High scoring and intense contests across both divisions marked an action-packed night of water polo at Karratha Leisureplex.

The B-grade women took to the water for the first match of round six on Thursday with Holly Child showing she is just as comfortable in the field as she is as goalie, putting away three for the Wahoos. Final score 6-2 to the Wahoos.

Low numbers across the B-grade men’s teams for a second week resulted in a forfeit.

The A-grade women’s teams continue to develop their strategies as the training behind the scenes for Country Week ramps up. Courtney Williams from Krakens scored an impressive shot from deep wing, assisting her team to another win against the Barracudas, 10-4.

Pirates newcomer Ashleigh Parkes demonstrated noticeable improvements this round, scoring her first two goals of the season against the Krakens.

However, the experience of Simone Fountain and shooting finesse of Ebony Hennessy was no match for the rookies as Krakens won 17-6.

The A-grade men’s teams were back in form with full squads.

Pirates’ Luke Neuwert made a guest appearance from Bunbury, scoring two goals and assisting his team to a 15-5 win over Krakens.

The B-grade men are still looking for new players. If interested, come to the Leisureplex for Tuesday training or a Thursday game.
