Cervantes went down to Lancelin-Ledge Point in the LeCras brothers’ second game back in country footy on Saturday in a loss that could have been wider if it wasn’t for some wayward kicking.

The Pirates beat the Tiger Sharks, 9.13 (67) 9.4 (58), kicking five behinds in the second quarter but going into three-quarter-time behind before getting over the line with three goals in the last period.

Jordan Adamson-Holmes kicked four goals for the winners, while Jackson Harwood got two and Bradley French, Michael Taylor, Aaron Elari scored one each, while Brent LeCras kicked three for Cervantes, Jacob Green got two, and Tyson Lord, Nathan Goddard, Mark Lecras and Mathew James Thompson all had one.

Matthew Bannister was best for the winners, while Jacob Green took the honours for Cervantes.

Brent and Mark LeCras booted 21 goals between them in the previous round in a big win against Jurien Bay after they came out of retirement by the lure of a return to country footy.

Brent won eight flags at Cervantes and is one of the great forwards in the country, winning the Linsday Tierney Memorial Trophy leading goal-kicker award seven times to go with a pair of JJ Lussick Medal league MVP awards and a host of other medals.

Dandaragan beat Jurien Bay, 30.16 (196) to 8.10 (58), while Moora beat Dalwallinu, 9.16 (70) to 5.4 (34).
