Jnr Crocs U8

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Croc Pit came alive on Sun­day morn­ing with the mighty Port Dou­glas Crocs Un­der-8s bat­tling it out against the Ma­nunda Hawks.

In a elec­tri­fy­ing open­ing quar­ter, sec­ond-game player Taj “Ste­vie J” An­der­son was on fire, with his dev­as­tat­ing left boot and fin­ished the game with five goals and was well sup­ported by Mr Con­sis­tent Daniel “Goodes” Har­ring­ton who was strong in the ruck, and the quick in and un­der skills of Tam “Kerr” Neguyen were im­pres­sive and even pro­duced the smother of the day.

Carl­ton’s great win on Fri­day night must have in­spired Ethan “Kruser” Scott who played well and kicked a clever goal and the strong mark­ing pow­ers and fi­nally straight kick­ing of the much im­proved An­gus “SOS” Van Rouy­lan.

Af­ter pass­ing a fit­ness test prior to the game, tough nut Sam “Martin” Wall played an ex­cel­lent game as did his favourite brother Dal­ton “Maric” Wall hap­pily dis­play­ing his new boots with some telling dis­pos­als out of de­fence.

Game day Cap­tain Hay­den “Cox” Caswell lead from the front and was quite vo­cal in­spir­ing and en­cour­ag­ing his team­mates, and the de­fen­sive skills of Kai “Yar­ren” Durie and the long bomb goal of Kalan “Thomp­son” Poole and the light-footed and very quick Hugo “OO” El­li­son kept the home crowd en­ter­tained.

This week the boys get a once in a life­time op­por­tu­nity to play at half time at Caza­lays un­der lights in the Rich­mond ver­sus the Gold Coast Suns this Satur­day which will be fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for all.

The coach’s awards this week went to Hay­den, Ethan, Dal­ton and Daniel.
