Waihi Leader - - News - — Rudy Sas

Yet another game on the road and the Waihi Year 9/10 Colts found them­selves off to Fitzroy Park in Hamil­ton to play Boys’ High.

It was the fifth week in a row they have trav­elled, the start time though mak­ing it a lit­tle eas­ier to bear with the game sched­uled to kick off at 11.30.

Colts started strong and be­fore long went one up but HBHS quickly equalised. From there Colts scored two more be­fore the break with some dom­i­nant dis­plays of good foot­ball that de­servedly had you lead­ing at the half time whis­tle 3.1.

In the sec­ond half Colts con­tin­ued to press and score two more goals, one of which was a real beauty scored by Rua, but fol­lowed a great build up and well-worked team goal show­ing again that you are start­ing to gel as a team. How­ever, with con­fi­dence high they took their foot off the gas and let them back into the game and with HBHS scor­ing three quick goals bring­ing the score back to 5-4 with 10 min­utes to go. It made for a tense close to the game for spec­ta­tors and coaches. To their credit Colts stepped it up and con­tin­ued to show their hunger and scored a sixth. HBHS also scored but it wasn’t enough with the fi­nal score 6-5.

Ree­gan Green was the well de­served player of the day. .

Goals were scored by Ma­son Mouat 2, Rua 1, Rahira Parker 1 Ree­gan green 1 and Dy­lan Gib­son 1. Thank you to Gary Ewing for reff­ing, and to all the trav­el­ling par­ents.
