U-14s turn game around

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Un­der-14 Raiders have shown they can turn their game around and play like they played the first game of the sea­son.

In a well-struc­tured game against a much big­ger and new side to the com­pe­ti­tion, JCU/ South­side, our boys showed them what they have to do to be con­tenders in rugby union.

Out­stand­ing ef­forts from Glen McFarlane on 3 points, Henry Miller on 2 points and Karl Hinz earn­ing 1 point.

The rest of the team played with great skill and de­ter­mi­na­tion mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to pick the 3, 2, 1 play­ers. The end score for the night was 50 to 10. Fri­day night saw the Bar­ron Trin­ity Un­der-10 team fall vic­tim to the mighty Raiders.

The Raiders made ev­ery post a win­ner with strength and in­ten­sity in their de­fence, then com­bin­ing speed and team­work in at­tack.

All play­ers put in a full ef­fort, show­ing the crowd that they have be­come a true team and work to­gether.

The boys crossed for five tries with only one con­ver­sion, and kept Bar­ron score­less, pro­duc­ing a fi­nal score of 27 to 0.

Next week is a bye, but the boys will be train­ing as per usual to keep the team on top of their game.

With only two weeks of com­pe­ti­tion left the boys have to fight hard to be grand fi­nal con­tenders.

This week sees the U-10 and U-12 with a bye while U-14 travel to St An­drews for a game against Wan­der­ers. The last week of rounds has all teams play­ing at JCU on Novem­ber 29.

The fi­nals rounds will be played in Cairns on De­cem­ber 6 for all teams.
