PORT Dou­glas de­feated Cairns Saints 15.9.99 to 2.3.15 fol­low­ing a walkover the week be­fore and all the boys were anx­ious to get on to the field and into the ac­tion once again.

With a full squad to work with for the first time this year, it was easy to ex­per­i­ment a bit. With the “twin tow­ers” up for­ward in Amani and Con­nor the mid­field­ers had plenty to aim for. Both these boys are close to 190cm and very hard to han­dle, so it was al­ways go­ing to be dif­fi­cult for a very young Saints’ out­fit.

When the ball wasn’t marked by ei­ther of these two the likes of Chase­ley, Ai­den and Mitch Bohm were there to mop up.

The usual sus­pects in the mid­dle of the ground in Brett and Chuck got the ball for­ward on many an oc­ca­sions but it was the work of our un­sung he­roes up back that was most pleas­ing, and Eathan the “Wall” con­tin­ued his great start to the sea­son with ter­rific sup­port from Braden Lau­rin and Tommy Rad­cliffe and Casey.

Best play­ers: Amani An­der­son, Con­nor Zealand, Braden Lau­rin, Tom Rad­cliffe, Char­lie Wil­liams, Chase­ley Nandy and Brett Mcke­own

Goal Kick­ers: Chase­ley 5, Con­nor 3, Amani 2, Ai­den 2, and one each to Jake Gib­son, Brett and Mitch.
