Jnr Crocs mix it up

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

PLAYED in per­fect con­di­tions with the slight dis­trac­tion of low fly­ing planes, the mighty Port Dou­glas Crocs Un­der8s trav­elled to Hol­loways Beach for their round two en­counter against the Lions.

Af­ter an even first quar­ter, the lions kicked the first two open­ing goals, de­spite great de­fen­sive ef­forts from Gus, Tyler and Ethan.

In the mid­dle Big Taj, bat­tled hard all day, as to the im­proved ef­forts of An­drew, Jai who rucked well, each mak­ing solid ef­forts with big clear­ing kicks and first game player Jes­siah im­pressed.

High­light of the day was two clever goals from Kalan and for his first goal of his ca­reer and no doubt many more will fol­low from Jet­son who re­ceived a mas­sive roar from two very proud par­ents on the side­lines.

Young Taj was also ef­fec­tive in the for­ward line set­ting up one mag­i­cal play which re­sulted in a fine team goal.

Coach’s awards went to An­drew, Taj, Jes­siah and lit­tle Taj.

The Un­der-10s Crocs had a tight bat­tle on the week­end with the Cairns City Lions.

Even with some tall op­po­si­tion young gun for­ward Jamie Hud­son snagged a cou­ple of goals in the first quar­ter.

The young Croc’s showed some great skills through­out the game and their team­work through the mid­dle and coming out of the back­line was out­stand­ing.

Player of the day went to a very de­serv­ing Jake Sher­well who ran his lit­tle legs off all day. Macca’s awards went to Daniel Har­ring­ton, 2 goal kicker Slade Roberts and cap­tain of the day Scott Cooper.

THE Un­der-12 Port Dou­glas Crocs en­joyed a nar­row win over the Cairns City Lions at Hol­loways Beach.

A solid week of skills, fit­ness and one-on-one pres­sure drills in train­ing paid off for the boys who played a much cleaner and com­pet­i­tive game.

The Lions led for the first three quar­ters, but a rev-up at three quar­ter time fired up the Crocs, keep­ing the Lions score­less in the last term to win by nine points.

Daniel David­son kicked four goals for the Crocs, while Jack Har­ring­ton, Mitchell Budge and Ryan Bour­guignon each kicked a goal.

Man of the match was awarded to Ryan Bour­guignon, En­cour­age­ment Awards went to Mitchell Budge and Cameron Stevensen , while D’Lea Hol­croft re­ceived the medal.

The Un­der-14 Crocs had a dis­ap­point­ing loss to the Saints, 10.11.71 to 1.1.7.

The side showed plenty of spirit and were good in the con­tests, but dis­posal let them down with an in­abil­ity to hit tar­gets.

Ben Muia kicked the Crocs only goal. Best play­ers were San Evans, Hugo Walker, Char­lie Burns and Fraser Allen.
