Cen­tral Cougars to face Rat­tle ‘N’ Hum

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - SAM SMALLBONE

IT WAS make or break for the se­nior net­ballers this week to claim a spot in the grand fi­nal or end their sea­son with a loss.

The Cen­tral Cougars bounced back after last week’s dis­ap­point­ment to claim the fi­nal spot in the grand fi­nal in a vic­tory against the Young Guns.

The Guns came out con­fi­dent with high hopes but could sim­ply not match the ex­pe­ri­enced Cougars.

The team played a very con­trolled game and took ev­ery op­por­tu­nity they were given.

The game was full of turn- overs, how­ever the Cougars dom­i­nated each quar­ter con­vert­ing the op­por­tu­ni­ties into goals, with a fi­nal score of 39-14.

The Cougars will now meet Rat­tle ‘ N’ Hum in the grand fi­nal next week, the two teams hav­ing a long his­tory of ri­valry.

In A-re­serve the Su­gar­land Shoot­ers gained their spot in the grand fi­nal after de­feat­ing the Pink Pan­thers with a fi­nal score of 26-19.

The Shoot­ers had one up on the Pan­thers through­out the game but had to fight hard to ob­tain the win.

The Pan­thers put up a good fight but sim­ply missed too many cru­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties over the game that re­sulted in the fi­nal loss.

The Shoot­ers will now face Julatten Jew­els next week; both teams are ex­pected to show a great deal of skill.

B-grade saw a big up­set with the Un­der-14 Rep team go­ing down to the third placed Break­ers.

The Un­der-14 Rep team were the favourites go­ing into the game, hav­ing beaten the Break­ers in most games this sea­son.

The Break­ers, how­ever, were de­ter­mined to prove every­one wrong and did so with an im­pres­sive 29-14 win.

The fast paced game saw er­rors by both teams but also some great skill from all play­ers.

The Break­ers would now meet the Jets next week, an in­ter­est­ing game to keep an eye on.

Lo­cals are wel­come to sur­round the courts to watch the se­niors grand fi­nal games at 6.30pm on Au­gust 30.

Raf­fle prizes will be on of­fer in­clud­ing a trip on Quick­sil­ver, meal vouch­ers at Hogs Breath Café, Four Mile Café and the Com­bines Club along with a Puma sports bag.

Lucky spec­ta­tor prizes will also be given out with drinks and food will also be avail­able.
