came into the title game sporting a 7-0 record. They scored
a total of 305 points while giving up just 43. In other
words, it didn't good for the boys in orange and blue.
And as fate would have it, the game went pretty much to
Colts scored early and often in grinding out a 20-0 first
half lead. Ashbury then blew the game wind open in the
seond half thanks to Jonah Nagler who scored a pari of
tries less than two minutes apart.
Colts would add three more tries before the Wildcats'
Ryan Yuke finally scored a converted try on the final
play of the game.
Nagler's two tries, the rest of the Colts majors were
scored by six different players. Christian St. Louis scored
a pair of tries while Alex Carr, Irving Cazabon-Sousa,

added a single.

in the convert department where Cameron Morrison was good
on just one of nine attempts in the windy conditions..
