Wickham Wolves’ league team recorded a comfortable 68-point win playing away against the Dampier Sharks in round 13 on Friday night.

After suffering their first defeat of the season against the Karratha Kats last week, the Wolves were back in control this round as they led throughout the game.

In the opening term Wolves’ cruised to a four-goal lead against the Sharks, who had a shaky start with only four points for the quarter, to be 21 points ahead at the first break.

Dampier produced a much better second quarter of football, kicking 4.4 for the term and outscoring Wickham, but were let down by inaccurate kicking.
