Un­der 8s

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

AN­OTHER away game for the mighty Port Dou­glas Crocs Un­der-8s saw eight fit and fir­ing ath­letes bat­tle it out against the Cairns City Lions on Sun­day. Play­ing deep in the for­ward pocket young lit­tle Taj Uw­land was dom­i­nant early with some fine leads deep out of the for­ward line, with Jet­son Parry bob­bing up and caus­ing a few headaches for the Lions de­fence. On one leg and show­ing a heap of courage was lit­tle ‘‘Crunch’’ Kalan Poole who played his heart out and show­ing signs of frus­tra­tion af­ter watch­ing an­other Crows de­feat the night be­fore. Carl­ton’s great form lately has in­spired Ethan Scott, who pro­duced some telling marks and a fine goal. In the mid­dle big bad Jonte Rev­ell played his best game of the year with some thump­ing kicks deep into the for­ward line and the quick foot­work - just like his mum on the dance floor - of Jai Sta­ple­ton kept the large crowd en­ter­tained. Gus Gaske was out stand­ing all game with many coura­geous acts and his team work to in­volve other play­ers was a high­light. Zippy rover Hay­den Caswell may have found a new po­si­tion down back and was in and un­der ev­ery­thing and played a great game. Coach’s awards went to Gus, Hay­den, Jonte and Kalan.
