Ju­nior Sharks

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

IN their fi­nal games of 2010 the Un­der 6 Sharkies en­sured that their un­de­feated record was not spoiled. The boys played against Kan­ga­roos, Broth­ers and Ed­mon­ton Storm, and won all three games. Against Ed­mon­ton Darcy Turner palmed and weaved his way across the line twice with Kye ’the tank’ Durie scor­ing as well to re­sult in a 12-0 win. An­other 12-0 win against Kan­ga­roos was made pos­si­ble when Darcy con­tin­ued his fine form to score twice again, and Ryan Hawk­ing who was on fire this week­end added an­other 4 points to the board.

In the fi­nal game against Broth­ers, the Sharkies’ small­est men pulled to­gether and proved that size is no in­di­ca­tor of heart. David Neller and Malackye Toby worked magic to make the breaks and gain me­ters to then set up the ever fe­ro­cious Tyson Os­borne and first time try scorer Zac Kessler to re­sult in a 8-0 win. Man of the Match Awards went to Tyson, David, Zac and Malackye and Coaches Awards went to Ryan, Darcy and Kye. The un­der 7s played two games against Broth­ers and Yarrabah. Against Broth­ers, Lafe Hat­field scored the only try and con­verted for the Sharkies. This fi­nal score for this game was 6-10. The Sharkies v Yarrabah game was try­less. Man of the match was Lafe Hat­field and coach’s award went to Jarvis Kessler. The un­der 8s played Broth­ers. Fletcher and Bray­den tore the Broth­ers de­fence apart when­ever they got the ball and scored 3 tries each. By the end of the 3rd quar­ter Moss­man and Broth­ers were level at 7 tries each. Broth­ers scored the first try in the fi­nal quar­ter only to see Moss­man hit back with a try of their own to Bron­son. The next try to Broth­ers was what they thought would be a match­win­ning try. In the dy­ing min­utes of the game Moss­man scored again though Liam to tie the match at 9 tries all. Play­ers like Heath, Char­lie, Nick, Ma­son, Harry also need a men­tion with their great team play and com­mit­ment. Un­der 9s took on Broth­ers Blue and what a great game it was. The boys were all evenly matched and were try for try un­til the last quar­ter where a young speed­ster from Broth­ers put in 2 quick trys to take the match. Tom Walker was on fire with tack­ling ev­ery­one in his path fol­lowed by Locky Buzza who al­ways gives 100% in ev­ery game. Kalepo, Joe and Billy put in some hard yards with Joe Tusa be­ing re­warded as the only try scorer, scor­ing two mag­nif­i­cent full yard runs. Well done Joe. Nick Sco­maz­zon was played fan­tas­ti­cally with some great run ups earn­ing him the man of the match this week. Well done Nick. In the Un­der 10s’ first game against Broth­ers Blue the Sharks pulled to­gether and played as team to come out with a 12 - 6 win. Great tack­ling from both Xa­vian Pitt and Jer­ame Fri­day had the op­po­si­tion run­ning scared whilst Trazane Cob­bFis­cher ducked and weaved through the de­fen­sive line to score and Zachary Os­borne busted through right on the try line to add an­other 4 points to the board. Suc­cess­ful con­ver­sions by Dharese Bowen and Cody Port ce­mented the win. Man of the Match Awards went to Jer­ame Fri­day and Trazane, with Coaches Awards for Xa­vian and Wil­liam Brown. In the sec­ond game the Sharks con­tin­ued their great run with a 4 all draw against Broth­ers White. Joel Bowen showed great im­prove­ment in his ball run­ning and Ri­ley Jenk­ins de­fen­sive play was out­stand­ing. Tom Lin­gard helped se­cure valu­able me­ters for the Sharks with Ri­ley Bell’s quick think­ing al­low­ing him to se­cure a dropped ball and dash for a try in the fi­nal min­utes of the game. The Man of the Match was Joel Bowen and Coaches Awards went to Ri­ley Bell and Cal­lum Mather. U11s took on Broth­ers Blue on Satur­day and won the game 18-6. It was a great con­fi­dence win for the boys. For­wards Harry Good­man, Luke Pel­le­grinet, Aaron Dun­well and Sean Evans kept the team go­ing for­ward with their hard straight run­ning. Wayne Oui and Ed­die Todd also de­serve a spe­cial men­tion for their im­prove­ment, as do all boys who cer­tainly picked up their ef­forts. Dean McCarthy’s abil­ity to run the ball back as full­back was ex­cit­ing and fault­less, which earned him the Man of the Match Award for this week. Try scor­ers were Finn CameronDivine, Luke Pel­le­grinet and An­gus Dick­son. Con­ver­sions were done by Aaron Dun­well, Tully Cartwright and Wayne Oui. The un­der 12s con­tin­ued on with their march to a top 2 spot on the lad­der with a mag­nif­i­cent 26-6 win. With five play­ers away on rep duty and two oth­ers play­ers un­avail­able the lo­cal boys again showed the mean­ing of team spirit. The coach was very proud of the boys and was re­luc­tant to sin­gle out any one player but Man of the Match per­for­mances from half back Harry Walker who was strong es­pe­cially in de­fence and util­ity Dane Jenk­ins play­ing in the cen­tres con­tin­u­ously took on play­ers twice his size.
