Cougars show­ing plenty of fight

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

DI­VI­SION One of the se­nior netball saw the Cougars take on Crocs 1 and de­spite the Cougars only hav­ing six players they fought long and hard to win pos­ses­sion and shoot goals.

How­ever, it was not good enough to keep up with the strong de­fen­sive and at­tack­ing side of the Crocs. The fi­nal score was 25-14.

The next game was be­tween Young Guns and Rat­tle ’n’ Hum. The game was quick for both teams with nu­mer­ous turnovers.

The quick pas­sages of play saw the Young Guns dom­i­nate win­ning three of the four quar­ters over Rat­tle. Fi­nal score was 38-16.

In Di­vi­sion 2, the Ring Ins and Gun­nars bat­tled hard to win the game. Ring Ins started off strong win­ning the first quar­ter 3-0.

Through­out the whole game Gun­nars showed great de­fence in re­ceiv­ing nu­mer­ous turnovers. De­spite of their ef­forts, Ring Ins came off as the team on top to win the game 11-6.

The sec­ond game for the night in Di­vi­sion 2 saw the Jets play Crocs 2. It was a tough game for both sides, with close mar­gins each quar­ter. Jets’ strong de­fence saw nu­mer­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties for their shoot­ers to shoot goals. Re­gard­less of the Crocs’ ef­forts, the Jets were too strong and won the game 38-20.

The Di­vi­sion 3 teams were out in force with Rep­tos playing Wolver­ines in the first game.

De­spite Wolver­ines only hav­ing six players, they stepped up and made Rep­tos work hard for their win. Wolver­ines made nu­mer­ous in­ter­cepts but Rep­tos fit­ness and skill saw them make clear pas­sages of play to the cir­cle. Fi­nal score was 22-15.

The last game of the night saw Break­ers play Bits ’n’ Pieces. Break­ers are still find­ing their feet as they be­gin to gel as a team. Bits ’n’ Pieces used their ex­pe­ri­ence to fight hard to keep Break­ers’ score down. The fi­nal score was 16-3.

Next week DNA will be hold­ing their AGM at 6pm, and could all teams be punc­tual as we want to start the meet­ing on time. Games will still be­gin at 6.30pm.
