Crocs pull the plug on Pyra­mid Power

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Crocs re­serves fin­ished off their fi­nal home and away game with a con­vinc­ing 138pt win over Pyra­mid Power.

Play­ing at Cazaly’s and get­ting some match time on the ground be­fore fi­nals was handy for the team who played a well dis­ci­plined phys­i­cal style of game.

The game opened up from the first bounce with great cen­tre clear­ance work from the Crocs’ mid­field group who de­liv­ered with poise to KB at full for­ward.

Kick­ing straight was the key to the game and the team fin­ished the first quar­ter with 10 goals straight, keep­ing the op­po­si­tion to 1pt. The sec­ond quar­ter was just like the first with cen­tre clear­ances mov­ing quickly into the for­ward line and the for­ward line pres­sure keep­ing the ball in there.

Great de­fen­sive work by the back­line kept the Power to 1 goal by half­time with the Crocs again kick­ing straight with 6 goals to go into the half­time break with 16 straight goals on the board.

The sec­ond half was a tighter af­fair and some way­ward kick­ing crept in. The boys were keep­ing the score­board ticking and fin­ished with 5 goals and 4 be­hinds for the quar­ter.

Some great in­di­vid­ual ef­forts by the lads kept the Power to 1 goal for the quar­ter. The last quar­ter opened up a bit and saw ome way­ward kick­ing again with 5 goals 6 be­hinds for the quar­ter.

The team as a whole played well and they fin­ished of the fi­nal game of the home and away sea­son in great form. It was a good chance to get much needed game time in go­ing into the first week of the fi­nals hit­ting some form.

A great ef­fort by KB at full for­ward who kicked 13 goals for the game. Once again ruck­man James Woller­mann pro­vided the on-ballers with first use of the ball and was im­pres­sive around the ground as well.

A great per­for­mance against a team who only just missed out on the fi­nals. Port Dou­glas fin­ished the year well and go into this week’s first fi­nal on Satur­day against South Cairns at 11am at Cazalys as well as the Se­niors v South Cairns at 1pm
