MATCH REPORT ROUND 6 - Sunday June 2nd
The Port Colts hosted the Hampton Rovers at our home ground. Both sides
went into the game undefeated, so we were going to have to play a strong
team game to come out on top. Jacob and Leo were our co-captains for the
The Rovers started strong, kicking 2 quick goals to put us on the back foot.
They kept testing our back line and Ethan stepped up with excellent
defensive tackling. Xavier took a great defensive mark and followed it up
with a good kick out to the team who found space. This quarter was all
about defence as the Rovers kept pouring on the pressure. Dom tackled well
in the midfield and Dion made strong tackles in defence to stop any further
goals to the Rovers. We had a match on our hands!
The second term saw a quick goal from Dom within the first minute which
lifted the team. We knew we were going to have to work hard for every
opportunity as the ball stayed in the midfield often, with both teams
really contesting and tackling well. Coby worked hard in the midfield to
get the ball forward and Jacob was able to get a couple of behinds under
pressure, but we didn’t have any set shots on goal due to good opposition
defence. Our tacking really shone in this quarter, with great work from
Tom, Gardner, William and Kai putting into practice our training. Dion
made a great kick from the backline to deny the Rovers any easy points.
The third quarter saw another quick goal, this time from Coby to again
boost our confidence. The midfield remained challenging, but this quarter
we used strong kicking and marking to clear the congestion. Georgio led
well from the midfield with a strong kicking performance and both Tom and
William took great marks and followed them up with targeted kicks forward.
Harper shone with a great kick whilst being tackled. Coby finished the
quarter with another late goal thanks to great teamwork which put our nose
ahead by 2 points! The Colts showed we were able to adapt our play to get
on top of the opposition and were being rewarded for our efforts!
In the last term, the Rovers lifted and the Colts responded again. Dion
took a great mark in the centre, Harry put on a good tackle in the forward
line and Coby got another goal - 3 for the day! Tom K and Ethan both took
good marks and followed with great kicking forward. The last minutes of
the match saw a big final push by the Rovers to score, deep into our
defence. The back line stood strong and William and Xavier laid great
defensive tackles to stop any goals to the Rovers.
Overall both teams were evenly matched, but the Colts again showed courage
to play strong under pressure, intelligence to listen and adapt against a
different team and skill by using everything we learn from our training and
previous matches. Go Colts!
