Un­der 16s

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

PORT Dou­glas Un­der-16s Crocs U16 lined up last Fri­day night against Pyra­mid Power in Cairns. Af­ter last week’s dis­ap­point­ing home loss, this was a must win for the boys if they wanted to stay in con­tention for fi­nals footy. With the help of a good wind at their backs, the boys came out in force play­ing great team footy. Their play was fast and furious, stamp­ing their dom­i­nance in the first quar­ter. Ethan and Con­nor kicked a goal each and Joe was on fire, kick­ing two goals, and the Crocs led 4.1.25 to 0. The Power fought back in the sec­ond quar­ter and it was now game on, cap­i­tal­is­ing on er­rors made by the Crocs and tak­ing con­trol of the game. The Crocs only scored one point for the quar­ter to the Power’s 28. Nathan showed some great skill and was depend­able as our last line of de­fence. With a steely re­solve and some quick think­ing, the Crocs fought back to be within six points of Power. The last quar­ter saw the Crocs kick­ing into the wind and they knew their op­po­nents could eas­ily kick a bag of goals. To their credit they wore down their op­po­si­tion with fan­tas­tic team and run­ning play. Mitch set­tled the team with a great goal late in the quar­ter and Cahill kicked the goal to seal the game for the boys, a bril­liant ef­fort saw them win­ners by one point. Best Play­ers were C Zealand, N Evans, J Todd, J Deni­son, J Wren, E McCul­lough, M Bohm and C Rankin.
