Sharks keeping heads up
MOSSMAN Port Douglas Sharks went down in an entertaining away game against Yarrabah giving the equal fifth team a run for their money.
Yarrabah defeated the Sharks 44-26 after some crucial mistakes made at the wrong time let them down but the Sharks still managed to play a positive game.
President Bronson Ryan said they have not “lost their bundle” yet and are focused on winning their last home game this weekend against Suburbs.
“We are still trying to push the top teams to their limits, which is very important at this time of year and we’re still battling,” he said.
“We want to be competitive on the night and show our fans for our last home game this week, which will be our last fixture with all our grades together and we’re hoping all our supporters come out.
“The Suburbs are in the top five and we want to make sure the home crowd gives us a big send off, a big hurrah after a pretty successful year.”
Standouts in the Yarrabah match were the usual talents of Peter Tuccandidgee, Germaine Pryor and Troy Hilditch each playing an excellent game and Quinton Dodd playing well in the forwards.
“Also the two boys from Yarrabah Jordon Canendo and Andrew Garrett played brilliant against their home crowd, going back into Yarrabah is a big thing and they stood out well,” Ryan said.
Kick off for C-grade is from 4pm at the Mossman Showgrounds and the Sharks A-Grade will finally get their postponed match with Brothers next Wednesday night.
