Crocs trounce Hawks
Ladder leaders easy winners by 130 points!
THE Port Douglas Crocs ventured down to the home of finals football in Cairns at Cazaly’s on Saturday and blew away Manunda in an awesome display of football across all lines.
Former premiership player Josh Lea was welcomed back into the side and performed well and will be a handy addition come finals.
As well, first gamer Zach Gubbins was welcomed with a nice shiner first up, showing plenty of promise.
The game was effectively over at half time with the forwards lining up to finish off the good work in the middle.
Paul Lewis continuing his great form in the middle, giv- ing plenty of options to the onballers as Todd Shapter played his best game of the year and had plenty of support with Brayden Mayne and Dylan Wearmouth racking up the disposals.
Kye Chapple worked hard for his four goals and played up the ground on occasions as Mitch Bohm and Andrew Macleod capitalised on their opportunities with three goals apiece.
The backline led by Declan Kelly and Wes Glass once again was impenetrable.
They let through only six scoring shots.
The miserly defence is a real springboard for attack and the team went on to win by a massive 130 points.
For the Crocs the match was another useful opportunity to familiarise themselves with the ground that hosts the grand finals, as they progress towards that likely fixture as a team.
“We think playing at Cazaly’s suit us. We have a good group of midfielders and runners, it’s a great venue with a lot of open space.”
With a number of players still available to push up for seniors, being on the training track is crucial to earning a position in this side.
