Colts Win Again

04 August 2014

Colts take the points against UHS/VU

Uni High/ VHS were the opponent at their ground near the Zoo, on a cold and crisp August morning.  This was to be the fourth meeting of the sides this season.  The tally being 2 wins to St Bernard’s and 1 win to UHS.  The conditions were ideal for football with only a small dew on plentiful grass, no wind  and the sun shining.

The colts from the first bounce set about deconstructing UHS attack with some strategic matchups, amounting to a 3 goal lead at quarter time.  UHS forays forward were repelled by the Colts returning Captain (Tristan Doody) at Centre Half Back.

The second quarter saw the Colts squander the opportunity to ice the game, the 8 scoring shots amounting to only 2 majors.

The colts continued to outscore UHS in each quarter .  Eventually running away to a 44 pt lead.  The 8 goal scorers included 3 majors from Michael Diamandis, and a pair from Matt Zammit.

Improved performances from Tom Howard (Ruck Rover) and Nick Kelly (wing) and Anthony Cunsolo (deep in defence) helped the Colts to a solid victory.

The Colts maintain second place on the ladder, but by only 9% to Westbourne.  Looking forward the Rd 18 clash with Westbourne may well decide second spot this season.
