Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Un­der-15 Sharks played their fi­nal game for the sea­son last Satur­day putting up a good fight against the sec­ond placed Kan­ga­roos.

The Roos scored the first two tries of the match jump­ing to a 10-0 lead but the Sharks hit back with two tries of their own with Quin­lyn Can­non cross­ing twice off the back of some great team­work mak­ing the score 12-10 to the Sharks.

Moss­man had the up­per hand and Jake Todd and Dicky Jack­son both man­aged to get over the try line but un­for­tu­nately failed to ground the ball cleanly. The Roos then took ad­van­tage of their op­por­tu­nity and scored two more tries mak­ing the score 18-12 at half-time.

The Sharks went into the sec­ond­half de­ter­mined to fin­ish the year with a win throw­ing ev­ery­thing they had at the Roos, and when Jag­gar Ablett crashed through the de­fence and scored un­der the posts, the Sharks had the Roos on the hop.

Un­for­tu­nately, the boys turned over pos­ses­sion on three or four oc­ca­sions in the last 15 min­utes of the game and it was enough for the Roos speedy back­line to run away with the game and the even­tual score was 40-24 to Kan­ga­roos

The high­light of the game was when the crafty Patrick Lanskey threw a gem of a ball from dummy half pick­ing up Ta­heega Sav­age down the short side to score his first ever try much to the de­light of whole team and coach­ing staff.

Jake Pendle­bury, Jag­gar Ablett and Cur­tis Hober all played strongly in the for­wards. Hay­don D’Adonna lead the team per­fectly at half-back and Quin­lyn Can­non was vir­tu­ally un­stop­pable again. Man of the Match went to Ta­heega Sav­age for his great ef­fort on the day.

The boys have been com­pet­i­tive all year and should be proud of their ef­fort both play­ing the game and at train­ing.
