Raiders put up good fight

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS - RUGBY

THE Un­der-14 Reef Raiders headed down to cairns on Fri­day to play the high­landers.

The high­landers could only man­age 12 play­ers for the night but to their credit they come out fir­ing and scor­ing two quick tries to take a 12-0 lead.

The raiders hit back be­fore half­time by scor­ing two tries them­selves, one try to Quin­lyn Can­non was a high­light of the game as he ran 65m and beat five op­po­si­tion play­ers to score and one to Wayne Oui.

At the break the scores were tied and the sec­ond half was very tight arm wres­tle with both teams hav­ing scor­ing chances but again Can­non was first to score for the Raiders.

The Raiders put in a huge de­fen­sive ef­fort with Tom Henly and Tom Allen lead­ing the way, which led to Can­non’s third try and won 24-12 with four front­line play­ers miss­ing.

Best for the Raiders were Tom Allen, Aron Price and player of the day Can­non.

The raiders this week will play their first game un­der lights for the 2012 sea­son with the Un­der-12s kick­ing off at 5.45pm, the Un­der-14s at 6.30pm and the Un­der-16s at 7.30pm.
