Cam­paign off to a bad start

Mandurah Coastal Times - - SPORT -

THE Peel Thun­der Colts lost to Swan Dis­tricts 52-61 in the first game of their fi­nals cam­paign at Claremont Oval on Sun­day.

Talent man­ager John Deitz said it was an “arm wres­tle” and Peel was play­ing catch-up foot­ball.

“We could not cap­i­talise when they got the ball in­side 50,” he said. “We were 16 points down at quar­ter­time and could not peg them back.”

Deitz said the team would re­group and hope­fully bounce back in their door-die game against East Fre­man­tle at Joon­dalup Arena on Sun­day.

This week­end’s game will be the first semi-fi­nal.
