UN­DER-8S

Week­end ju­nior Crocs round up

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

WITH grand fi­nal spots on the line, the mighty Port Dou­glas Crocs were keen to put in a fine per­for­mance against the Cen­tral Bull­dogs on a sunny Sun­day morn­ing at Crath­ern Park.

Dur­ing the first quar­ter the fire bri­gade “had to be called in” be­cause Kalan “Ricciuto” Poole was on fire and this helped to in­spire his team­mates with An­gus “Alessio” van Rouyan re­bound­ing well out of de­fence link­ing up with the dash­ing Daniel “Frank Curcio” Har­ring­ton and the im­proved Coldy “Sav Rocca” Tay­lor.

Fill-in player Brodie “Len In­cigneri” played a solid game and stood tall at cru­cial times with some out­stand­ing pack marks and long for­ward kicks. Up for­ward the two mos­quito fleet play­ers in Ethan “Sil­vagni” Scott and young Luke “Koutoufides” were prov­ing plenty of headaches for the bull­dogs’ back­line.

In­spired by the Olympic gym- nas­tics, Dal­ton “Camporeale” Wall kicked goal of the year with a half pike for­ward roll which re­ceived a huge roar from the crowd which in­stantly lifted his team­mates, in par­tic­u­lar Kai “Dip­ier­domen­cio” Durie, Hugo “Al­lan Mertello” El­li­son and Sam “Peter Pianto” Wall who had a great game in the ruck.

The coaches’ awards were given to Colby, Kai, Daniel, Brodie and Dal­ton. and An­thony Long (1). Hugo, Kye and Brodie from the Un­der 8s were in­valu­able and showed great skills yet again.

The team is rar­ing to go for the fi­nal home game next Sun­day. This week’s medal went to Dean Lau­rence and awards to Jake Sher­well, Kye Durie, Jamie Hudson and Brodie.
