COM­ING off a win the pre­vi­ous week, the Un­der 12s looked great in their first quar­ter against South Cairns Red. With a cou­ple of quick goals, the boys stamped their au­thor­ity early, send­ing a strong mes­sage to their op­po­nents.

A solid lead early in the game al­lowed all play­ers to try out less fa­mil­iar po­si­tions on the ground in the sec­ond and third quar­ters.

This pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for play­ers such as Toby El­li­son to demon­strate some ex­cel­lent de­fen­sive skills across the half-back line, quick hand­balls from Reuben Al­li­son and fierce tack­ling from both Ryan Bour­guignon and Tyson Lynch.

Ben Muia was re­warded for his hard work in all four quar­ters as he kicked four goals for the game.

Joel Bowen also fea­tured in the goal tally, but even more im­pres­sive than his straight kick­ing was his will­ing­ness to share the ball in front of the posts when other play­ers had bet­ter po­si­tions on goal.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Brodey Tay­lor for his best game of the year. His hard work on the ball helped to guide the Crocs to a solid vic­tory, 16.8.104 to 4.2.26.
