COLTS DOWN IN FIRST LOSS
The Western Magpies Colts suffered their first defeat of the season when defeated by Palm Beach-Currumbin by 17 points,
The young Pies found the windy conditions in the morning match difficult to master and set the tone for the day for the Pies by falling behind early then trying to reel in their opponents.
The talented outfit were disappointed with their efforts and failure to adapt to the conditions, but their efforts can't be questioned. Skill errors were the feature of the day, with both inaccurate kicking for goal and poor execution around the ground keeping the pressure on the young side.
Best players were half forwards Abdullah Haddad and Ritti Batilimoyo, winger Jacob Aurisch, ruck rover Deng Arok and defender Chris Jenkins.
The Pies will be looking to bounce back to the winners list when they play Surfers Paradise next Saturday in a feature twilight match at 4:45pm after the Seniors in front of a big home crowd and will be particularly looking forward to impressing the attendees of the Magpies Ladies Day!
