Mongrels and Warriors went into last Wednesday’s Karratha and Districts Eight Ball Association match as the only unbeaten sides. Mongrels started poorly as Warriors opened the first round 4-1.

Mongrels have been in this position on many occasions and have always found a way to get back but this time Warriors were having none of it as they won the second round 3-2 and the last 4-1.

Mongrels never looked a threat as they were solemnly beaten 11-4.

The 11-4 win makes Warriors outright ladder leaders,a position the Warriors have grown accustomed to in recent years.

Third-placed Stickmen were too good for Recaholics 9-6 and consolidated their position.

Punishers’ great start to the season stalled as Samson Slayers this week had the better of them 10-5 and sit in fifth position just behind Punishers on percentage.

Wreckers had a comfortable win over Animals 10-5 and are out of the top four on percentage.
