Jnr Crocs U12

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

AF­TER two weeks of school hol­i­days the Un­der 12s looked fresh as they took to the field for their clash with the Cairns Hawks. Un­for­tu­nately the start to the game was not quite what the team was af­ter as the op­po­si­tion scored their first goal just two min­utes af­ter the cen­tre bounce.

From this mo­ment on, how­ever, the game was dom­i­nated by the lo­cals who started their as­sault on the goals. Leon Wren kicked the first goal for the Crocs, shortly af­ter kick­ing his sec­ond in what was an out­stand­ing quar­ter.

He was well sup­ported in all ar­eas of the ground as the con­fi­dence of the Port boys in­creased and their de­sire to be a part of the goal-scor­ing frenzy in­ten­si­fied.

Cap­tain Char­lie Burns dis­played ter­rific courage as he worked hard for con­tested balls and was re­warded for his ef­forts, scor­ing a to­tal of four goals for the game.

Toby El­li­son, Josh Bellero and Billy Thomson all dis­played their in­ten­sity, reg­u­larly win­ning the ball through hard run­ning and of­fer­ing good op­tions for their team­mates.

With a fi­nal score of 17.19.121 to 2.3.15 this was a won­der­ful team ef­fort and a game for which all play­ers can be proud.

Goal scor­ers: Char­lie Burns (4), Bray­den Wall (3), Ben Muia (3), Hugo Cor­rie (2), Daniel David­son (2), Leon Wren (2) and Joel Bowen (1).
