JUNIOR SPORT RESULTS
MOSSMAN SHARKS JUNIORS, RND 13
Under 6: What a great day it was at Redlynch on Saturday with all the kids primed for their last game. So many outstanding players on the field in the first game, Zane Langford, Tyler Smith, Heath Duff & Jake Broadley just to name a few, all getting stuck right in. But the teamwork on show was most impressive. As for our Stingrays the shining stars were Brody Fitzgerald, Ashton Wray, Bailey Evans, Oshen Gawthorne and Reckarl Hobbler. It’s a shame the season is over but it was awesome to end it with such a great effort by all the kids. Thanks to all who helped out with the kids this year, they wouldn’t have improved so much without your help. You know who you are. Bring on 2018!
Under 8: The Sharkies done there family, supporters and the club proud with a hard fought win over redlynch, the team have learnt a hard lesson in the last 5 weeks of the competition that every team will play above themselves when they play them, being in top of the comp means everyone wants to beat you. There move up defence has won the team all there games this year and they seem to lift that side of there game when they are under pressure from the opposition. Co captains Dwayne and Kai have led from the front all year and the foot work of Chaelyn, Flynn, Miseron, Davarn and Hunta have led to a big bag of tries. Coops has helped take the team to the next level, and Gemma, a first year Sharky playing first receiver, was a very important position in the team and has changed the running side of the team’s game. Big Alex, our only big boy, had them on the front foot all year with some outstanding yardage runs. Wylem, our utility, will play anywhere and tackle anyone. Outstanding competitive spirit and the team’s enforcer Leben is willing to do all that’s asked for from his team. Three years undefeated – the coach couldn’t ask for any more. So proud; well done young Sharkies.
Under 9: A trip to Redlynch saw us up against the Razorbacks and Silverbacks, and to the team’s credit they were switched on from the get go. Being our tackling machine Tyla Ozzie Osborne’s last game for the club it sure was an emotional warm up. The kids took control early and really set the tone for the rest of the game, winning the game 18 tries to 1. Everything we have been practising at training for the last five months was put on display, it was a real pleasure to watch and certainly a very proud moment for me as the coach of this amazing group of kids. Joel was again outstanding with four tries, Cherinesha and Kezron had flashy footwork both running in 3 sensational tries each, Caleb played an exceptional game leading from the front and scoring himself two tries, Ollie Hardhead scored a great try and wouldn’t let anything past him including tackling his own team mate which was the highlight of the day. Samuel has come along in leaps and bounds this year, having an a huge impact when we are attacking and really giving his side the best chance to score every time he has the ball, Jake had one of his best games for the year setting up his team mates to score and scoring a try himself, John always does as he is asked and held down the wing position exceptionally. Josh from White Rock came over to lend a hand and played fantastic, thanks mate. Lleyton has improved as the season got on and he always gave it his best shot. We really missed having Ashton, Harry and Rhett due to illness. Thanks for a great season Under 9s, enjoy your week off and let’s get ready for Paul Bowman. Big thanks to the parents who support me and bring the kids week in week out.
Under 10: The team narrowly went down to a well drilled and very prepared Razorbacks, but not without an entertaining show of fitness, skills and talent. With the speed and footwork of EJ Bowen, Jermaine Ryan, Seth Langford and Zaven Salam the opposition never knew what was next. Hard hit ups from Atticus Seeber, Jettyler Hall and Colby Watkinson set a platform for these guys to work some magic. Narrasen showing great improvement with every game. Kyan Alveoen and Ryder Smith both played their solid games to finish off a great season. This team has cemented itself as a force to be wrecked. Huge thanks to the under 9s they stepped up and continued to play skilful footy and hold their own as valuable players of the game.
Under 11: The Sharks played their final game of the season on Saturday, taking on a very strong Razorbacks team down at Redlynch. The Sharks kept up their tradition of getting off to a bad start, dropping the ball in the first set of six and straight away handed Redlynch the ball which resulted in points to the Pigs. This basically set the tone for the first half and the young Sharks had to do a lot of tackling in very hot conditions, and the half time whistle was a welcome sound. The second half however saw the Sharks put together some good footy and a better attitude in defence. Kyan Alvoen was outstanding with some strong charges and brilliant tackling. Sarona Mamarika played her best game of the year along with Cooper Morana who showed a lot of courage against some big opposition. Bonita Solomon showed what a great player she has become, leading by example and Esmond Bowen showed his toughness, scruffing with the big Pigs. Unfortunately the heat and a mountain of tackling took its toll, and with Redlynch rotating their huge bench the Pigs took a well deserved victory on the day. Kyan “The Lunatic “Alvoen got the coaches award for his effort and Cooper ‘Red Man” Morana was Man of the Match. A huge thanks to the kids for putting in a great effort all year and to the parents who support us every week, you guys are awesome. Thanks to the Committee for an outstanding year, the U/11s have had an amazingly fun season
Under 13: Last game of the season saw us travelling to Redlynch to come up against the Razorbacks. The boys met strong defence from the Razorbacks being held out on several occasions the final score of 28 to 20 to the Razorbacks was not a true indication of how the Sharks played.The boys dug deep in hot still conditions completing most of their sets and practiced plays. Points were put on the board by Flynn White Tyson Osbourne and Justin Samuel. The boys have done a great job all year having to join with Whiterock cannons so we could field a team. This Saw them only being able to come together on game days. The boys have done their coaches and parents proud for pulling together as a team and working hard and we can’t wait to do it all again next year.
Under 14: The team played their best game of the season when they took on the Redlynch Razorbacks on Saturday. The Sharks started a bit slow, letting the Razorbacks in for two early tries before finding their mojo and getting onto the scoreboard with two of their own. The Sharks went into the halftime break 18-10 down. The second half saw the Razorbacks jump out of the blocks faster than the Sharks again,putting on three unanswered tries before the Sharks got going again. There were some very well put together pieces of play that led to some scintillating tries and the Sharks were very happy with themselves,coming home with a wet sail in the end to finish the game 4436,behind on the scoreboard. Everyone really stepped up and had some input in the game with Jakobi ‘the jet’ Lyall and Jaxon ‘the giant’ Norman really stamping their mark on the game. Jakobi also taking out Man of the Match and players player honours.
Under 16: Well boys, our game against Ivanhoes didn’t go the way we wanted but that doesn’t mean you didn’t give your all because you did. So proud of the way you kept on going against some very questionable refereeing calls. You kept your composure and played some really good Football. So glad to see Nick get a try. You boys played with spirit, mateship and sportsmanship, so proud to have been your coach this year. For the amount of training that we could do together, we really did play well. Not sure what is happening next year but if you all play then you should play together because you are building a really good team. With a few more players, there is no doubt you can play Semi Finals Football and maybe more. Remember boys, presentation day is on at Mossman Sharks on September 2 at 11 am. Love to see you all there. Be happy with your efforts this year boys you have really got something to build on. Man of the Match went to Byron for another great display and to Abela who never has a bad game and always plays with great spirit. Try scorers were Kim, Nick, Rjay and Byron, Goals” Maison (1). Presentation day is at 11 am on September 2 – lunch provided.
