Waihi Leader - - News - By BRENT WILLOUGHBY

The Waihi Col­lege Colts have kept the mo­men­tum go­ing with a strong match against a HBHS XI.

Up 4-0 at half time, they could have been 20-0 ahead, but for the ap­par­ent strong force field around their op­po­nents goal, and some ex­cel­lent goal­keep­ing.

Coach Rudy Sas was happy with the way the team per­formed, show­ing great de­ter­mi­na­tion un­til the fi­nal whis­tle.

“I am very happy with the way they per­formed and they showed great de­ter­mi­na­tion un­til the fi­nal whis­tle, and that’s what it takes to win games,” he said.

Jamie Grey was most im­pres­sive with a high work rate, re­sult­ing in player of the day. Kon­nah Sas scored a hat­trick plus one and was un­lucky not to get a fifth with an over­head bi­cy­cle kick. Fi­nal score was 8-0 with the other goals com­ing from Ben Hennessy and Cap­tain Hamish Brown. Arch ri­vals Te Awa­mutu lost to St Peter’s, mean­ing Waihi are now top, equal with TA but with a su­pe­rior goal dif­fer­ence, and a home fix­ture against Te Awa­mutu to look for­ward to on the fi­nal day.

The year 7 and 8 team had an­other fine win — def­i­nitely in the wrong grade this sea­son. They had won their di­vi­sion, and Coach Dave Oliver has some ex­cel­lent tal­ent. All play­ers have con­tin­ued to strive, re­gard­less of the score, and train and play with an ex­cel­lent at­ti­tude.

■ Re­sults: Waihi Col­lege Colts 8, Hamil­ton Boys High 0. Player of the day: Jamie Grey. Goals: Ben Hennessy 2 Hamish Brown 2 and Kon­nah Sas 4.
