COLTS TWO FROM TWO TO TOP THE LADDER
The Colts are flying the flag for the Magpies with two solid victories against strong opposition.
Against Broadbeach the Pies got on top in the second quarter but were challenged in the third before holding the Cats goalless in the last quarter. Both sides had 15 scoring shots but the Pies accuracy won the day.
Chris Jenkins was best across half back and fellow defenders Chris Moloney and Zane Lovell also played key roles to keep the Cats out. Skipper Noah Resuggan and fellow midfielder Jacob Sheath were also prolific ball getters for the Pies.
New player in small forward Ritti Batilimoyo could become a cult figure and he booted 2 goals in a great debut for the Pies. The Pies play PBC in a fortnight and the Lions had a narrow 1 point win over Labrador so it will be another tough match for the young Magpies.
