Un­der-15s mus­cle up in nail­biter but fall just short

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Un­der-15s had great help with six ex­tra play­ers turn­ing up giv­ing for the first time this year a bench to play with.

The game was played in ex­tremely wet con­di­tions with the Moss­man boys show­ing heart and char­ac­ter to defy the Ivan­hoes mas­sive for­ward pack from scor­ing any points for the first few min­utes of the game and it was ac­tu­ally the Sharks who scored the first points.

The game was a very tight strug­gle all the way with only six points be­tween the sides.

Josh Fasano took Man of the Match hon­ours and is now show­ing signs of be­com­ing a con­sis­tent front rower.

Dou­glas Parkes played well un­til he suc­cumbed to a knee strain and with a switch in po­si­tions with Levi Wil­liams slot­ting back to full­back and Daniel Dowl­ing go­ing into the half­back, Moss­man went on the ram­page through solid at­tack­ing and sting­ing de­fence.

The best tackle of the day went to Lester Port who will be talk­ing about his bell­ringer for many years to come.

Moss­man went down by two points in the last five min­utes but with at least two more play­ers to come back have now got a team and look for­ward to the rest of the sea­son.
