Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

BE­ING short on play­ers did not stop the Moss­man Un­der-9s team from play­ing a com­mit­ted Ivan­hoes team on Satur­day and both sides fought hard to put on a solid dis­play of football. With only a few play­ers able to make the jour­ney Moss­man were al­ways go­ing to strug­gle for num­bers but thanks to the Un­der-8s team, Moss­man was able to put a team on the pad­dock. Moss­man started off poorly by let­ting the Ivan­hoe’s boys in for two quick tries but then started to get some rhythm.

Moss­man put on two tries thanks to Ma­son and Brax­ton and were quickly back in the game. Ivan­hoes caught on to our plan and started to play straight up the mid­dle and scored an­other cou­ple of tries.

Moss­man then hit back with an­other two quick tries and were back in the match but at the fi­nal whis­tle it was the Ivan­hoe’s team that won the day.

Man-of-the-Match award went to Leif Hat­field with a spe­cial men­tion to Jimmy, Michael, and Brax­ton. and Zek­lyn Grogan-Ryan who put on some bruis­ing front on tack­les to shut down the Broth­ers late in the game.
