Croc Pit set alight by the ju­niors

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

UN­DER 8 THE mighty Port Dou­glas Crocs pro­duced one of their finest per­for­mances this year up against the Cairns Saints at the Croc pit on Sun­day.

Game day cap­tain Kia “Kelly” Durie was out­stand­ing right from the open bounce with many link­ing hand­balls and long kicks into the for­ward line.

Coach’s awards went to Hugo, Taj, Dal­ton and An­gus. Spe­cial men­tion to Daniel and Tam who helped out with player num­bers with the Saints. UN­DER 10

An­other fast paced game on home turf this week - this time against Cairns Saints. All team mem­bers played strong with Jake, Slade, Harry, Scott and Jamie show­ing great pace and de­fence skills. Ethan, Ja­cob, An­thony, Dean and Casey also ran hard to keep in front of the Saints. Goal kick­ers were An­thony Long (3), Casey West (2) and Ja­cob Rich (1). Awards went to Harry Walker, Jamie Hud­son, Jake Sherwell and Dean Lau­rence and this week’s medal re­cip­i­ent was Casey West. UN­DER 12

Need­ing a win to keep fi­nals as­pi­ra­tions alive we got off to a great start. By half time we were a big chance of a win with Bray­den Char­lie and Hugo all win­ning good ball through the mid­dle but kick­ing points rather goals. Third quar­ter saw the Crocs two goals down and the Lions turned up the heat to run out 5 goal win­ners. UN­DER 14

THE un­der 14’s were up against the Saints who are cur­rently hold­ing 1st spot on the lad­der. Playing with some good old fash­ioned guts and de­ter­mi­na­tion there was noth­ing in it at three quar­ter time, but mid way through the last quar­ter the Saints were able to kick three quick goals and we were un­able to re­spond. Thanks to Char­lie and Ben from the U12’s for help­ing us out, they cer­tainly hold their own. Score 7.4.46 to 3.5.21 Goals Jack Lau­rin, An­gus Dick­son, Jack Dick­son

Awards Ben Shrimp­ton, Jack Lau­rin, Jar­rah Wren, Jack Hud­son
