COLTS TOP THE LADDER AFTER BIG WIN
The Western Magpies Colts have gone back to the top of the QAFL ladder after a comfortable win over Mt Gravatt on Sunday morning.
The young Pies were on song from the first bounce to have 5 goals on the board in quick time to have the match well in control at quarter time.
The Pies won 17.9-111 to 5.3-33, despite resting several players.
The Pies had too much class for the Vultures and with Dan Edwards, Chris Jenkins and Sam Mehari showing clean skills at ground level and with pace were able to set up plenty of Pies scoring opportunities. Up forward Cam Ferguson, Finn Collison and Jayden Johnson were strong in the air and Charlie Thorpe relished a chance up forward to finish with 3 goals.
Ryan Cherry also impacted the contest with some strong play across half forward and Whitlam Bishop was composed at CHB and led a tight defensive unit. Oscar Prior enjoyed his return to the ruck to give the Pies first use of the football.
The Magpies have a chance to reverse their earlier season loss to PBC in a fortnight to cement themselves at the top of the ladder.
Western Magpies 5.2 - 32 | 9.7 - 61 | 14.9 - 93 | 17.9 - 111
Mt Gravatt 0.0 - 0 | 1.1 - 7 | 3.2 - 20 | 5.3 - 33
Best: Edwards, Bishop, Cherry, Jenkins, Mehari, Resuggan
