Un­der-18s re­main ti­tle threat

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Port Dou­glas Crocs Un­der-18s re­main in third spot de­spite their loss to Cairns Hawks last Wed­nes­day.

With the Crocs low on reg­u­lar num­bers due to the school hol­i­days, the boys fought right to the end against a qual­ity op­po­nent.

With Alex Forbes, Jack Lowe on a trans­fer per­mit and Jack Goodall work­ing hard in the cen­tre, the team gave the for­wards good use of the ball with Mathew West­gate snap­ping two great goals.

A pos­i­tive to come out of the night was the re­turn of Michael Mckeown to the team af­ter a long stint in­jured with a bro­ken shoul­der.

His re­turn along with the good form from Jor­dan O’Gorman, Michael Pid­geon and Kee­gan O’Neill kept the team in the con­test.

But in the end the Hawks proved too good on the night to win 71-47.

With a fi­nals spot guar­an­teed and the re­turn to the side of other in­jured play­ers, the team needs to work hard in the five re­main­ing games un­til the fi­nals, with the team a big chance to win that elu­sive pre­mier­ship.
