Strong Crocs side bat­tles the Power

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

SATURDAY saw the Crocs Re­serves take off down the high­way to play Pyra­mid Power at North Cairns Oval in driz­zly weather that made for slip­pery con­di­tions.

Port un­doubt­edly had its best Re­serves team ever se­lected, with eight or nine play­ers in the team hav­ing played for the se­niors A team

First quar­ter saw the boys kick with a strong wind but poor kick­ing let them down in front of goal.

Some undis­ci­plined Pyra­mid play­ers back chat­ted the um­pires re­sult­ing in two play­ers sent off, and one re­ported.

At three-quar­ter time one point was the dif­fer­ence, in favour of Port, but Pyra­mid Power had a three-goal wind at their back.

It was goal for goal at the 10 minute mark of the last quar­ter, which left our boys look­ing good but Pyra­mid had other ideas.

Four or five shots on goal late left Pyra­mid with their noses in front as the siren went.

Still on top of the lad­der boys, heads up re­group and get back on the win­ners list.
