Close for Cougars

Kalamunda Reporter - - Sport - Cur­tis Jack

A-GRADE foot­ball was back at Ray Owen Re­serve, with the Kala­munda Cougars tak­ing on the newly pro­moted Kingsway Roos.

The colts kicked off pro­ceed­ings in the best way pos­si­ble, de­feat­ing the Roos 9.6 (60) to 5.8 (38), a mas­sive ef­fort from the young­sters in their first game of se­nior foot­ball for most.

Brett Quinn started the sea­son where he left off, with the best-on-ground award.

The re­serves were next and it was great to see a few fa­mil­iar faces back at the Cougars. They matched it with Kingsway for most of the game but even­tu­ally went down 4.6 (30) to 9.6 (60).

The fi­nal game of the af­ter­noon was to a fresh-faced A-grade team, with five play­ers play­ing their first league game for the club.

Kingsway ral­lied late and had a shot at goal af­ter the siren to win but Kala­munda pre­vailed 13.2 (80) to 11.10 (76).
