Round 19 Colts Report

 

Saturday saw the colts take on Huonville in our last game at Anzac Park for the season.

 Due to a lack of numbers we were forced to feild 16 players and many thanks to Houville as they did the same.

The first Half was tight and even and the boys had many chances and we went into the major break 3 goals down but confident of pulling of an upset.

 Unfortunately the boys ran out of legs in the second half and the well-drilled Luions side kicked away.

 Better players for the day included Bodie Savage and Pete Suwathi down back, Jordan McCullum in the middle and Kizza and Nathan Brown up forward.

Special mention to Nath Brown's Left foot snap that I'm sure his still tralking about!

 Next Week we play Sorell at Pembroke Park in what would will be our last game for the season.

Round 17 Colts Report

Saturday saw the colts take on the Central Hawks at Anzac Park.

 
Going into the game we knew that the Hawks were going to throw everything at us and we were determined to start well.
 
Our pressure around the ground was fierce and our midfield were on top and we went into the major break 3 goals up.  This should of been more but credit has to be given to the hawks defence as they continuelly rebounded it out.
 
The second half saw the boys continue to pile on the pressure and we ran out 8 goals victors.
 
We now look forward to our 2 remaining games full of confidence and with a great opportunity to finish the year well.
 
Better players for the day included Jai Bannister & Jy Sullivan in the middle, Bodie Savage & Brad Riley down back and Shaun 'Froggy' Frogson booted 4 goals up forward.

Round 13 Colts Report

Saturday morning the colts travelled to Boyer to take on the undefeated New Norfolk.
 
In what was always going to be a tough game, we were reduced to 17 players by the start of the match with some of the boys succumbing to injury and work commitments.

To the boys credit they never dropped their heads and even though New Norfolk ran out easy winners by 150+ pts we gained some positives going forward.
 
Better players for the day included Cam Potter through the midfield, Shaun Frogson & Kieren Iles down back while the 2 ruckmen Raeden Smedley and Dave Cruse both gave massive efforts.
 
Next Week we take on Dodges Ferry at Anzac Park, and with the return of key players it promises to be a close game.

Round 12 Colts Report

Last weekend’s game at home was the rematch of the Colts’ first win in four years against Triabunna earlier in the year.

We knew last Saturday’s game was going to be a tough affair, with several of our key players out through injury.

Tribaunna started hard at the ball and continued that way for the rest of the game.  The first quarter was disastrous for us, but, to their credit, our boys fought back through the next three quarters with some excellent football and never let up.  Our under-strength side battled well but, unfortunately, was unable to make much of a dent into a well-structured and hard playing Roos side.

The boys travel to Boyer this week to tackle New Norfolk.  With key players returning to the side we look confident that, by playing to our strengths and structures, we can give good account of ourselves.

Best players last week were: L Alsford, C Potter, J Whittenbury, J Bannister, B Brown and J Sullivan

Round 11 Colts Report

Saturday saw the colts take on last years premiers Brighton at Anzac Park.
 
Conditions were good but there was a stiff breeze blowing towards the tennis-court end.
 
Brighton kicked with the breeze in the opening term and, although we won our fair share of ball in the midfield, there class shone through and they went into the first break 40 points up.  Second quarter our boys dug deep, and with the midfield on top, we kicked 4 of the first 5 goals of the quarter before Brighton got a couple back in the latter stages.  Second half the boys tried gallantly and down to just 18 players we fought on although eventually going down by 75 pts.
 
Best players for the day included Jai Bannister, Raedan Smedley, Jordan McCullum, Ian Mckenzie and the entire backline stood up despite being under constant pressure.
 
This week we look forward to Triabunna at Anzac park in which should be a close encounter.
