COLTS HIT THE LAST HURDLE IN A GREAT SEASON
After a rollercoaster season the Colts made the grand final only to fall short on the day to a stronger Ocean Grove team. The game was played fairly and in good spirit and the boys were challenged!
The Colts played competitive football all day and we matched the Ocean Grove boys in most departments!
We started slowly playing catch up football trying to get the game on our terms!
The game went goal for goal from both sides and we were always in the hunt……… giving away two double fifty metre penalties resulting in goals to OG made the task difficult….final score: OG 14.5 defeated BH 11.2. It was a 21 point victory to the Grove!
Over the past 6 weeks we played outstanding, attacking football with strong team spirit to get ourselves into the big dance! This tilt at the flag was a credit to the team and our outstanding support staff and to the commitment of every player!
We are proud of the efforts of the Colts in season 2109 and the manner in which they accepted defeat!
We are aware no one expected the Colts to finish the season as strongly as they did and it is an example of how we must never underestimate the capabilities of a group, where there is belief and strong team spirit, as we can be never sure how far an individual or group can go! ………Being open-minded and prepared to look at things from a different perspective can provide a surprising outcome!
