Ju­nior Sharks en­joy gala day

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

LO­CAL ju­nior rugby league play­ers toook part in a pre sea­son gala day in Ma­reeba re­cently. The coaches said all teams played fan­tas­tic foot­ball. UN­DER 6 The trip to Ma­reeba saw the U/6s play their first game of league. We couldn’t be more proud of the ef­forts ev­ery­one put in. Pey­ton, Ja­mal, Toby and Kingston lead well in at­tack, while Cas­sidy Lin­coln ,lit­tle Zane Dal­las and Diezel held the de­fence to­gether with a win over Ed­mon­ton.

Man of the match went to Pey­ton Bowen for show­ing great lead­er­ship in de­fence and at­tack. UN­DER 8 A team played Ed­mon­ton Light­ning in tor­ren­tial rain. A huge thank you goes to U/6 coach Chris Payne for step­ping in to help.

It was great to see some old faces back play­ing for the Sharkies this sea­son.

De­fence was led well by Tyla Os­borne, Joel Hat­field and Oliver Mo­rana.

Rhett Hawkin al­ways look­ing to score at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity. Shan­nyn Os­borne, the only girl in our team, didn’t let that worry her, man­ag­ing to get over the line for a try.

Kezron Her­bert, Cher­i­ne­sha Marawili and Jake Lang­ford tried hard all day. Man of the match went to a new ju­nior Sharkie, Sa­muel King, who was fear­less on the day. UN­DER 9/10 A com­bined team of U/9s and 10s trav­elled to Ma­reeba. With only a cou­ple of train­ing ses­sions and many new play­ers, the team per­formed very well.

Up against a strong Ed­mon­ton team the Sharks showed plenty of de­ter­mi­na­tion in their de­fence, led by the fear­less EJ Bowen who chopped down the op­po­si­tion all over the ground.

Ry­der Smith showed he is se­ri­ous about his footy this year, hav­ing an out­stand­ing game at dummy half and was well as­sisted by new­com­ers Char­lie, Jet and Colby.

Saxon Vizard got him­self heav­ily in­volved, cut­ting the Ed­mon­ton de­fence to shreds, scor­ing a cou­ple of bril­liant tries and giv­ing a per­fect ball to Jer­maine Ryan who showed great abil­ity to sup­port the ball car­rier.

Kyan Alvoen also showed what he can do when he runs hard, scor­ing a pearler of a try up the middle of the ground.

At­ti­cus, Seth and Char­lene all played their first game for the Sharks and de­serve a spe­cial men­tion . Man of the Match went to Ry­der Smith for his de­ter­mined ef­fort. UN­DER 12 The team pro­duced an im­pres­sive 34-0 win over Ed­mon­ton. The co­he­sion was spec­tac­u­lar to watch as the Sharkies worked their magic .

Trent Day was re­mark­able with 3 tries and new­comer Shakara Gore showed the boys she was more than ready to play with 2 tries. Tyson Os­borne’s at­tack was fe­ro­cious, scor­ing a try, and Fynn scored a con­vinc­ing try in his first game for Moss­man. Brodie Fran­cis made a big re­turn to the game and Bay­ley Mo­rana showed 2016 was go­ing to be his year. Con­ver­sions were made by Ryan (2) and Tyson, with the coach suit­ably im­pressed with the out­stand­ing de­fense shown by the team.
