Six in a row for Coolum Colts
The Coolum Colts made it six wins in a row after defeating a strong Beerwah side 22-10 at Pomona last Saturday.
A poor start to the first half against an enthusiastic Beerwah side saw the Coolum Colts give an intercept try to Beerwah.
This seemed to spark the Coolum side which scored the next two tries to take the lead into half time.
Captain-coach Nathan Ratcliffe gave his players a pep talk at the break, which saw them deliver a much more controlled second-half performance.
Gavin Burke and Nathan Ratcliffe were two of the stand-out players along with man of the match Nick Hewton who played a strongly in defence and attack.
Ratcliffe said there were “several things” from Saturday’s game that needed extra attention.
“But any win is a good win,” he said.
Coolum’s senior club president Bob McGrath paid tribute to senior players Manu, Ryan, Drew and Aiden for their support of the junior Colts.
“Well done boys keep up the good work,” McGrath said.
Final score: Coolum, 22 defeated Beerwah, 10
Tries: Gavin Burke, Dean Morgan, Pat Burns, Manu Anderson.
Goals: Nathan Ratcliffe, 3.
