Un­der-10s cel­e­brate hol­i­days on footy field

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Un­der-10 Sharkies cel­e­brated the first day of the school hol­i­days with a great game of football.

The boys were un­der strength due to the fam­ily com­mit­ments but they were fired up for a fight against Kan­ga­roos.

They could not rely on many of the Un­der-9s to help us out but Matty and Ethan stayed be­hind and of­fered their sup­port.

With their main strike weapon in Ray­den sidelined for the rest of the year the boys needed to dig deep and fight.

To their credit they dug in and scored the first try of the day but from then on the over­whelm­ing weight of num­bers from the Kan­ga­roos team started to take its toll.

Derek once again tack­led his heart out and put on some huge hits.

Ma­son showed that the speed train­ing is work­ing with a nice break down the touch line re­mind­ing his dad of a time when he was a cen­tre.

The fi­nal score was Kan­ga­roos 12-Moss­man 3. Man of the Match was Ma­son Young.
