Young Sharkies get ready for the fi­nals

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE un­der 11 Sharkies went down to Broth­ers White in a clash be­tween the two top teams.

Right from the start the boys were on top with im­preg­nable de­fence which frus­trated Broth­ers and caused them to make nu­mer­ous mis­takes.

Al­though the Sharks’ ex­e­cu­tion could have been bet­ter at times, they had many at­tack­ing big guns in the form of Luke Pel­le­grent, Harry Good­man, Aaron Dun­well, Matty (the axe man) Ch­ester­field and Lex Tay­lor.

In the sec­ond half, they were su­perbly backed up by strong im­pact play­ers Sean Evans and Joey Buck­ing­ham.

The strong games from both play­ers helped im­prove the team’s sec­ond half per­for­mance.

Cap­tain Lach­lan Wil­son, as he has so many times this year, kicked off the Sharks’ scor­ing with a bril­liant in­di­vid­ual run from half­way to score out wide.

The try was con­verted by Hugo Walker, giv­ing the Sharks a 6-0 lead at half time.

In the sec­ond half Sean, Joey, Luke, Harry, Lach­lan and tena­cious Tommy Allen dom­i­nated the for­wards clash.

This al­lowed halves Dylan Sorensen and Jake Ne­wham to do what they do best, which is or­gan­ise the backs.

With out­side backs like Tully Cartwright, An­gus Dick­son, Hugo Walker, Dean McCarthy, Finn Di­vine-Cameron and Wayne Oui it’s no won­der the un­der 11s Sharks have been on top of the lad­der from the be­gin­ning.

The sec­ond half scor­ing started with a great back­line move­ment all the way out to winger Wayne Oui who put the ball down out wide.

The third try came from Tom Allen, who picked the right moment and cheek­ily put the ball over the line from dummy half.

Lach­lan Wil­son con­verted, with the fi­nal score 16-0.

A spe­cial men­tion must be made of An­gus Dick­son for great de­fence, some good draw and passes and in­ci­sive runs out wide.

Tommy Allen’s dummy half work has been ex­cel­lent all year and has drawn praise from other coaches and of­fi­cials wher­ever the Sharks have played.

The win has se­cured the boys a spot in the grand fi­nal to be held in Septem­ber.
