Crocs pull the plug on Pyramid Power
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
