Un­der 8’s

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE sec­ond home game of the year saw the mighty Port Dou­glas Crocs Un­der-8s put on a clinic for 12 proud mums on Mother’s Day against the ex­pe­ri­enced Cairns Saints out­fit. Game day cap­tain Jonte ‘‘Sil­vagni’’ Rev­ell led from the front and played a solid game, as too Ethan ‘‘Koutaoufides’’ Scott who had plenty of the ball be­fore be­ing subbed off with a mi­nor but­tock in­jury. Down back Jet­son ‘‘In­cigneri’’ Parry was solid as a rock and the quick re­bound­ing de­fen­sive work from Tyler ‘‘Barassi’’ An­der­son, Oren ‘‘Epis’’ and the best name in footy, Jes­siha ‘‘Cur­cio’’ St Pierre, re­ceived plenty of praise from coach Matt Scott. The lo­cal doc­tor had to be called for a cure for leather poi­son­ing as Taj ‘‘Dipier­domenico’’ An­der­son had it on a string with a fine fourquar­ter ef­fort. Still on one leg and hob­bling around like a busy bee was Kalan ‘‘Ricciuto’’ Poole and show­ing off his new set of wheels Jai ‘‘Martello’’ Sta­ple­ton again pro­duced some trade­mark foot­work that kept the Saints mid­field guess­ing. Some fine for­ward pres­sure from Hay­den ‘‘Fevola’’ Caswell and Luke ‘‘Camporeale’’ Pull­man re­sulted in many Crocs goals and the strong mark­ing pow­ers of Gus ‘‘Rocca’’ Gaske who at one stage thought he was a road traf­fic po­lice­man wav­ing arms around di­rect­ing traf­fic had the large Mother’s Day crowd in stitches. Coach’s awards went to Luke, Ethan and Tyler.
