Croc Pit set alight by the juniors
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
