Sharks C grade storm into grand fi­nal

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

FOR the first time in many years the Moss­man Port Dou­glas Se­nior Sharks will have a side in the grand fi­nal.

After be­ing de­feated in their grand fi­nal qual­i­fier last week, the Sharks C grade team stormed back to to­tally out­class Sub­urbs 28-10, book­ing them­selves a spot in the grand fi­nal against Kan­ga­roos.

The Sharks scored first and Sub­urbs scored soon after, lock­ing the game up at 6-all.

The Sharks crossed twice again in the first half go­ing into the break lead­ing 16-6.

When the boys came back on in the sec­ond half their con­fi­dence was brim­ming and it showed in their play as Sub­urbs were com­pletely out­classed in every po­si­tion on the pad­dock, both in de­fence and at­tack.

Sharks’ veter­ans Bron­san Ryan, Billy Quaid, Jon Collinson and coach Gary Mackay led from the front, work­ing hard all game.

Ja­mal Can­non was back to his best in the halves sup­ported by lit­tle brother Bryson Creek.

Gauai Wal­lace, Matty Coulthard, Bryce McHardie, Jer­maine Ryan and Jay­den Den­man all lifted and eas­ily han­dled the pres­sure of semi­fi­nals foot­ball. Young guns Levi Williams, Wynn Adams, Josh Fasano, Kienan Gro­gan, Mar­shall Win­kle and tack­ling ma­chine Rory McHugh found holes in the Sub­urbs de­fence cour­tesy of some good lead-up work from the for­ward pack.

Damien Pitcher and Lawrence Waigana were again strong in at­tack.

The boys go into the grand fi­nal full of con­fi­dence be­cause if they play like they did on Sun­day they will be un­beat­able. The game is at 2pm on Satur­day at Bar­low Park, Cairns, so come along and sup­port the mighty Sharks.
