Colts Coaches Report - Round 8 vs East Perth

We have become the masters of the close finish with another nail biter by just two points this time.

I asked a lot of the boys pre game with the main theme being to work hard and leave nothing in the tank and I was very proud of them to get over the line.

Although the start of the game we were trailing, we were very happy that we did not let East Perth get away from us and managed to hold on. A real defining moment in the game was the last few minutes of the third quarter when we managed to kick multiple goals in quick succession to put us only a few points down.

The last quarter efforts were fantastic with many game winning plays including a chase down from Cody Enders, a late tackle in the goal square from Josh Watson and some defining marks and goals up forward from Kurt Parolo.

Collectively we had 150 1%ers for the game and some outstanding individual efforts included Nathan Stewart, Ben Grace, Aaron Lawn and Kurt Parolo with his second half cameo.

We go into the bye with three wins and still a big chance to make a move on the top four and I urge supporters to get behind this young group of men and we try and do the club proud.
