Sharkies fail to stop Seahawks
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.
