Karratha Kats showed their class against Dampier Sharks to remain unbeaten this season after securing a 21-point victory at Windy Ridge Oval.

The North Pilbara Football League women’s round three clash on Friday, May 6 got off to an even start with both teams battling for possession and Kats holding a one-point lead going into quarter-time.

It was in the second term Kats were able to turn up the heat and control the ball for most of the quarter but struggled to score against a strong defensive effort from Dampier.

Kats entered the third quarter with a 20-point lead and looked strong but once again were unable to add to the scoreboard pressure thanks to the Sharks defense with both sides scoring just one behind in the penultimate term.
