COLTS RETURN TO WINNERS LIST
The Western Magpies Colts returned to the winners list with a solid victory over Sandgate on Saturday morning.
The Pies, coming off two lack lustre performances, were off to a brisk start to get on top early and were never challenged in their 12.5-77 to 1.6-12 victory. Despite the result, Sandgate are a strong side and the result shows the Magpies were switched on for the game after a couple of down weeks.
Welcoming small forward Cooper Crowell, on baller Darcy Prest, half forward Jonty MacDougall and half back Lawson Campbell to the team lifted the Pies and all were good players in the victory.
Crowell booted another 4 goals and was joined by full forward Cam Ferguson, also with 4 goals. Tyler Bobin played his best game for the Pies in his first season in black and white and had good support from consistent CHB Whitlam Bishop and also winger Brodie Gardiner. Crowell has 11 goals this year to be second on the QAFL Colts goalkicking list.
The Magpies sit in third place on the ladder and like their Senior and Reserves counterparts will regather themselves after this week’s bye to take on the undefeated Palm Beach-Currumbin in a fortnight in a rematch of the 2018 Grand Final.
Magpies 3.1-19 | 4.3-27 | 8.4-52 | 12.5-77

Best: D. Prest, T. Bobin, C. Ferguson, W. Bishop, L. Campbell, B. Gardner
Goals: C. Crowell 4, C. Ferguson 4, L. Davies 2, R. Edwards, J. MacDougall
