Frankie Pickett was the hero of the night with a last-minute winning goal to give the South Hedland Swans the 7.13 (55) to 8.5 (53) victory over cross-town rivals the Port Hedland Rovers in a thrilling match at Colin Matheson Oval. The Friday night derby was an entertaining spectacle in the North Pilbara Football League in what was a finals-like atmosphere. It was a seesawing contest in the first half as both teams traded blows and Rovers went into the major break with a two-point lead, 4.3 (27) to 3.7 (25). Luke Hockey kicked the first goal of the second half for the Rovers. Hockey booted three majors. Early in the third term, Rovers’ Justin Langridge received a head-high hit from Swans’ Edward Hine, as he slid into the opposition player. The clash of bodies caused a fracas on the wing and fired up the parochial Hedland crowd. This incident added more fuel to the fiery contest and lifted the tempo of the match. Some ambitious attempts by Swans players to take on the tackler resulted in turnovers and goals for the Rovers. Skill errors, coupled with inaccuracy in front of goal, looked like it might cost the South Hedland side as they headed into three-quarter-time trailing 7.4 (46) to 4.11 (35). Swans coach Trevor Dhu’s three-quarter-time speech must have energised the side as they came out all guns blazing to start the final term. Jermarl Daly kicked the first of the fourth for the Swans and they added another goal shortly after. Derby rivals Rovers answered back with a goal to take the lead into the final minutes of the fourth term. In the dying seconds of the match, Frankie Pickett emerged to kick his second goal and write his name in the Swans’ history books with a match-winning derby moment. Daly finished with two goals and Rovers’ Kohan Flann also booted two. The Swans recorded their third win for the season and are still a chance at making the finals, sitting in fifth position on the ladder. They travel to face the Karratha Falcons in round 11. The Rovers will be hoping to hold on to fourth spot on the table as they host the Wickham Wolves next week. In the reserves, the Rovers defeated the Swans , 6.11 (47) to 4.7 (31), after two majors from Brendon Coppin. The Port Hedland side led at every break and sit comfortably in third position on the ladder. Danie Moyle was best afield for the Swans with two goals.
