Sharks keep­ing heads up

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
