Drag­ons ce­ment spot in Pre­mier­ship

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

The ref­eree was not satisfied there though and harshly gave Gen­tile his sec­ond yel­low card for per­sis­tent foul­ing re­sult­ing in him also be­ing sent from the field.

It was a harsh way to end the game for some­one who had worked so hard and con­trib­uted so much to the per­for­mance. Gen­tile was still voted the Paddy’s bar Man of the Match for his per­for­mance.

Coach Lo­gan Marsh was un­der­stand­ably ec­static with the re­sult and praised his team’s ef­forts in the sec­ond half.

“We were pretty poor in the first half and I gave the lads a bit of a rev up at half time ask­ing for a more com­mit­ted per­for­mance in the sec­ond half and that is ex­actly what the boys pro­duced,” Marsh said.

“To get a win over Ma­reeba is cer­tainly very spe­cial. Speak­ing to peo­ple at the club no one can re­mem­ber the last time we man­aged it . . . so it is one to cel­e­brate and en­joy.”

The Drag­ons now have a week off for Easter be­fore a trip to South­side where they will be look­ing to record back-to-back vic­to­ries.

“Cer­tainly South­side is a game we are tar­get­ing to get three points in,” Marsh said.

“We will have four or five more lads cleared by then, so the strength of the squad is look­ing re­ally good.”
