Sharkies fail to stop Sea­hawks

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Moss­man-Port Dou­glas Sharks went down to the Yarrabah Sea­hawks in an epic match of fit­ness and strength.

The league show­down saw a fi­nal score of the Sea­hawks dom­i­nat­ing the Sharks 56-12.

Vice pres­i­dent of the sharks Troy Hilditch said the Sharks gave it their all but were be­hind the eight ball from the start due to de­ci­sions by the ref­er­ees who may have been a lit­tle in­tim­i­dated by the crowd.

‘‘The boys never stopped try­ing for the whole game, but it was a hard match with a lop­sided penalty count,’’ he said. ‘‘We had no 50-50 penalty calls at all. ‘‘No ref­eree de­ci­sions were go­ing our way and I think the score­board was proof of that.’’

Man of the match went to Robert Oui who gave his all for the en­tire game.

Hilditch said tonight’s train­ing ses­sion would fo­cus on fit­ness and game-style situ- ations and ball work, with the Sharks A-grade side keen to keep their home win­ning streak alive.

‘‘We will be train­ing hard for this weeks match against Broth­ers,’’ he said.

‘‘There is a lot of feel­ing be­tween the two teams and it al­ways brings out the best in both sides.

‘‘Sharks and Broth­ers are sit­ting in sim­i­lar po­si­tions on the lad­der and both will be keen to move up a rung.

‘‘All grades should see some fan­tas­tic com­pe­ti­tion this Satur­day and we re­ally hope to see a good crowd.

‘‘If we can win all of our home games and even just a few of our away games we should see a spot in the semi fi­nals.’’

The first game is set to start at 4pm at the Moss­man Show­grounds on Satur­day with the A-Grade kick­ing off at 7pm.
