Ju­nior Crocs bite into Cairns

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

the young Crocs didn’t know what they were in for. The ma­jor­ity of the team were the size of 12-year-olds. Even play­ing against a taller op­po­si­tion the Croc’s were first to the ball at most times and with quick hand­balls they were into the for­ward line quickly on sev­eral oc­ca­sions. When down for­ward the Crocs were very ac­cu­rate scor­ing six ma­jors for the day and only two mi­nors which weren’t far off goals. Young gun Scotty Cooper got a bag fall of goals for the day, with Daniel and Kye scor­ing a ma­jor each for there ef­forts. Player of the day went to the ‘‘Snake’’ Slade Roberts show­ing great courage in the back­line, re­sult­ing in stop­ping the op­po­si­tion from scor­ing on a few sep­a­rate oc­ca­sions. Macca’s awards went to Sam Wall and Nash Thomp­son. Also an ex­tra award this week be­ing a Macca’s footy go­ing to a well de­served Hay­den Caswell step­ping up from the Un­der-8s to help out, his great speed and skills were shown through­out the game. at­tack­ing raids with ac­cu­rate passes to space as well as kick­ing sev­eral goals. Tom Goodall also dom­i­nated around the ground and took a stack of strong marks in de­fence. Drew Bayne and Fraser Allen on the wings were find­ing plenty of ball and con­tin­u­ally fed the half for­ward line where Tully Cartwright was the fo­cal point. He didn’t let them down tak­ing con­tested over­head marks then fin­ish­ing with some long goals. The Crocs’ back six need to be com­mended on their ef­forts as they only con­ceded six points all game. With tight and com­mit­ted play they were able to cut off the Lions and run the ball straight back into their at­tack. One raid for­ward saw Sean Evans run off the half­back line and kick a nice goal. Char­lie Burns and Corey Taite changed well on the ball and were danger­ous around goals and hard ball get­ters in the mid­dle. Na­then Pid­geon gets bet­ter each week and is play­ing his best footy ever and played with a great never-say-die at­ti­tude. It is great to see a few more peo­ple get­ting along to watch the boys play as they are play­ing some good team football and cer­tainly en­joy the sup­port. The Crocs won 13.3.81 to 1.0.6. Goalscor­ers were Tully Cartwright (5), An­gus Dick­son (3), Fraser Allen (2), Corey Taite, Brent David­son and Sean Evans. Best on ground was An­gus Dick­son and awards went to Finn Cameron, Tom Goodall, Tully Cartwright, Tyson Fraser, Corey Taite and Taidhg Harkin.
