Ju­niors put in top ef­fort

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

A COL­LEC­TION of some of the finest soc­cer and fut­sal play­ers in our lo­cal schools joined forces to at­tend the 12 years and un­der Penin­su­lar Re­gional cham­pi­onships last Sun­day in Trin­ity Beach.

The Dou­glas Clus­ter took on the likes of In­n­is­fail, Mul­grave, Cairns, Bar­ron River, Ather­ton, Tully, Silk­wood/ Mena Creek, Cairns In­de­pen­dent and Ma­reeba.

The Dou­glas lads were a mix of ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers and a few that had never played be­fore and most of the boys were Un­der-11s in an Un­der-12s com­pe­ti­tion, but showed some ex­cep­tional tal­ent on the field.

In nine rounds of football the boys won four games, lost four games and drew one game.

It was a bril­liant ef­fort by the mixed team against some very ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers from the other sides.

Josh Ed­ward, Char­lie Dowling, Jack Jenk­ins and Jack Carr were as­sault­ing the net and op­pos­ing goalie with goal af­ter goal, mak­ing the Dou­glas Clus­ter known to their op­po­nents.

Cur­tis White, Bai­ley Mor­ri­son, Rueben Al­li­son, Nicholas Rayner, Jake Read, Con­nor White, Che Gonsalves and Mitch Ral­ston all were show­ing fan­tas­tic de­fence and kept mov­ing the ball for­ward..

The boys fin­ished fourth out of 10 teams, all ex­hausted but happy.
