Late surge not enough for Colts

The Subiaco Colts have lost fourth consecutive game in a low scoring affair against the Perth Demons at Medibank Stadium.

Despite only scoring their first goal late in the third quarter, the Lions provided a massive surge in the last to bring the deficit to a two kick margin.

Two late goals by Perth in the last quarter iced the game as the Lions saw the lead spread to 20 points in the dying seconds.

Midfielder Tim Edwards was a stand-out for the Lions collecting 25 possessions and four inside 50’s in a gutsy display.

Rhys McAlister was the most prominent forward kicking two goals; but also provided plenty of the ball with his attack on the carrier.

Coach Steve Armstrong was disappointed with the loss but was encouraged by his side’s ability to bounce back after their worst loss of the season against Swan Districts last week.

“It was a tough game, I feel we bounced back from last week’s disappointing loss to the Swan Districts and we secured our back six a lot better to make sure it was strong early in the contest, but when the opposition kicks four goals with the wind in the second quarter it’s hard to come back from that,” said Armstrong

The Lions have struggled to put game winning margins on the scoreboard in the last few weeks and today was no exception. The Colts took 61 minutes of football to score their first goal against the Demons in today’s contest but Armstrong isn’t concerned.

“We’re not really concerned about our lack of scoring at the moment; we’re more focused on stopping the opposition from scoring. Recently the opposition has been scoring too easily, so to sure up the back six was really important. Our midfielder’s work ethic was really good but I need a bit more composure from them going from the back to forward lines. We hope to get a decent score on the board but that didn’t really happen today, but at least we got a few at the end,” said Armstrong


One of the most interesting factors about the current Colts system is the continuous fluctuation of players. Due to senior call-ups, school requirements and State Academy duties the Subiaco Colts line-up can fluctuate greatly from week to week. It’s up to Coach Steve Armstrong and his coaching staff to manage these fluctuations and make sure the younger players coming through are ready for Colts football.

“It’s tough having the 18’s out and not being available for selection and obviously to be missing Chris Bryan and Connor Wilkinson who are both doing well in the reserves but in saying that you get a good opportunity to get games into players that will be Colts footballers for the next two or three years. Guys like Jay Allison-Green, Jack Beverly, Nic Wells and Bailey Nylander are all getting opportunities to get games of Colts football at a young age.” said Armstrong

Tim Edwards has grown as a footballer in his last year of Colts to become a key midfielder and a leader. Edwards collected 25 disposals against the Demons and used the ball effectively on a mistake riddled day. Edwards hails from Carine JFC and could be another Colts player searching for a senior call-up in 2014.
