Shaw eyes 100 goals in su­per Croc sea­son

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

CROCS goalscor­ing ma­chine Matt Shaw has a sniff of the mag­i­cal 100 ma­jors in a sea­son with three games re­main­ing be­fore the fi­nals.

Shaw again piled on the pain for his op­po­nents Co­bras on Satur­day with an un­stop­pable 10-goal ef­fort on top of the dozen he booted last week to take his tally for the sea­son to 82.

The ball mag­net shrugged off op­po­nents at will on Satur­day and had ex­cel­lent de­liv­ery from Caydn Beetham and Gareth De­laney.

Danny Smith, Brad Cooper and Kane Ue­ber­gang also im­pressed for the Crocs while Luke Bloom cel­e­brated his 50th ap­pear­ance for the Crocs in style with a dom­i­nant ef­fort.

Crocs coach Andy Vi­ola said op­pos­ing teams were try­ing to flood the de­fen­sive 50m in an at­tempt to slow down the scor­ing on­slaught with­out much suc­cess.

“It makes for an ugly game of footy when they do that but we’ve been able to over­come the tac­tic each time so far,” he said.

The Crocs will team up with lo­cal net­ballers at the Crocpit on Satur­day when they take on the sec­ond-placed Saints.

Saints will bring two net­ball sides to Port Dou­glas to take on lo­cal teams at the Port Dou­glas Sports Com­plex in a cur­tain­raiser to the main event.

The first net­ball game starts at mid­day with the A-Grade clash be­gin­ning at 1.30pm, with the Crocs re­serves match start­ing at 1pm and the se­nior sides do­ing bat­tle from 3pm.

The Crocs footy club is also raf­fling a new Toy­ota Corolla which will be at the IGA on Satur­day morn­ing, the Crocpit in the af­ter­noon and then the Sun­day mar­kets.
