Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

“Smiles” Neguyen and Dal­ton “Sex­ton” Wall.

The coaches’ awards went to Taj, Tam and An­gus. And a spe­cial men­tion to all our Un­der-8s who as­sisted the North Cairns’ team with player num­bers. WITH two games to play in a day, the Un­der-12 Crocs knew that they had some se­ri­ous work to do on Sun­day in Cairns.

Their first match against Cairns Cen­trals Red saw the Crocs take an early lead that they held on to for the re­main­der of the game.

Bray­den Wall kicked a cou­ple of early goals, stamp­ing the Crocs author­ity on the game early. He was well sup­ported by Ryan, Rueben and Jack who all showed their de­sire to win the ball in con­tested sit­u­a­tions. The Crocs ran out win­ners by five goals.

Af­ter a short break the boys fronted up for their sec­ond game of the day against Pyra­mid Power.

In a fast paced first quar­ter the Crocs were sim­ply out run as their quick op­po­nents con­sis­tently beat them to the ball.

To the credit of all play­ers they stepped up to the chal­lenge, prov­ing that the Un­der-12 Crocs are a team of sig­nif­i­cant char­ac­ter.

In the sec­ond quar­ter the boys lifted their in­ten­sity and by the third quar­ter their on-field team talk saw them ap­ply some se­ri­ous pres­sure on the op­po­si­tion.

Just min­utes be­fore the fi­nal siren, Brody Tay­lor put through a ter­rific goal that was en­joyed by the crowd of sup­port­ers on the side­lines.

De­spite this late goal, Pyra­mid Power proved too strong on day, run­ning away with a solid vic­tory.

The Crocs have a home game this week.
