C Grade Sharkies bounced by the Roos

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

ON Fri­day night the Moss­man Port Dou­glas Sharks C grade played Kan­groos at Smith­field in a grand-fi­nal qual­i­fier.

They were de­feated 20-16 in a close con­test which they could have won.

Be­cause of for­feits and byes the boys have only played one game in four weeks and it showed on the night as it took them un­til the sec­ond half to start play­ing good football.

Han­dling er­rors in the first half saw the Sharks go into the break down 20-4 but the sec­ond stanza was a dif­fer­ent af­fair with the Sharks keep­ing Roos score­less to come within four points and al­most snatch­ing the vic­tory.

They will be much bet­ter for the run and are con­fi­dent that on Sun­day they will elim­i­nate Sub­urbs and earn their place in the grand fi­nal.

The game is at 10am, Sun­day, at Bar­low Park, Cairns, so come along and sup­port the mighty Moss­man Sharks.
