Jnr Crocs U8
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.
