Full On Constructions and Rhythm Snow Sports Under 6's

It was the under 6 Colts last home game for the season with the players turning up to put on a show.

The Rams were first to cross for a four pointer, but Othon Morgan was quick to reply as he always does with a four pointer of his own.

Mitchell Fletcher was very impressive with his defence and shut the Rams down set after set with Ikani Smith putting on some great shots as well.

There were some good runs from Jack Walker, Aiden Dixon and Lachlan Bryan with Archie Kaufline and Rhylee Rosenbaum-Robinson almost crossing the try line yet again, but only just missing out.

But the show ponies Kyte Lee and Othon Morgan continued their butchery of the Rams' defensive line with Kyte Lee crossing for one try and Othon Morgan Crossing for three.

The Colts pretty much had the game won, but a sneaky run from a Rams player down the side line in the dying minutes levelled the game with the end result being 16 each.

As always it was a gutsy effort by the Colts. This week the medal went to Jack Walker.

South East Embroidery Under 7's

The South East Embroidery Under 7 Colts were involved in a torrid try scoring affair on the weekend as they narrowly went down to the Gungahlin Bulls.

The Colts demonstrated their great sportsmanship as they shared playing for the opposition who were short a player.

This may have proved the difference with the final score line but the young Colts needed to show more commitment in their defence before looking for any excuses.

The Gungahlin Bulls crossed for seven tries but the Colts were in the game until the very end as they crossed for six tries through the efforts of Dempsey Woolf, Tyrell Bartlett, Hunter Caldwell and Charlie Perea.

Despite some strong defence at times the young colts just could not contain the Bulls and when the siren sounded at fulltime they found themselves on the wrong side of a 36 - 32 score line.

Jett Kelly, Khian Flanagan, Connor Nelson, Hunter Caldwell showed some flair in attack. While Archie Blyton and Charlie Payne showed commitment for the full 30 minutes.

Snowy River Painting Under 8's

The Snowy River Painting under 8's played their last home game of the season this week against the Bungendore Tigers.

Cooma got off to a flying start after a great kick off from Clayton Clarke which found the touch line.

Cooma crossed the try line within the first minute of the game. Charlie Fleming, Nazareth Smith and Ty Brazaulitis led the way in defence this week with each of them making some try saving tackles.

Josh Williams showed his pace again today making several brakes and was unlucky not to score. Allira Williams, Jacob Smith and Lachlan Sky also proved to be a hand full when running the ball.

It was a very close game from start to finish. This week's try scorers were Cameron Filtness with three tries, Clayton Clarke and Lachlan Sky with a try each. Final score 30 - 30.

After a rev up from the coach the Colts ran away with the game winning 36 - 12. The stand out players were Tobi Inskip 3 points, Justin McDonald 2 points and Jack Kleven 1 point.

Sportspower Cooma Colts Under 10's

An outstanding team effort was displayed for the last home game of the year, defeating Bungendore 38-12. Michael Day and Kayla Fleming were back playing either side of the ruck and created havoc all game.

Michael stormed over for two tries, Kayla unlucky after a 50 metre burst. Lachlan Hemphill and Kristian Zusak were outstanding at first receiver, calling the plays well, Kristian also scored four tries, Lach's defence was excellent. Jonah Perea and Talon Kelly found plenty of space out wide, as well as providing great cover defence, Talon scoring a try, and both kicking a goal.

Tirone Morgan and Adam Constance played a little wider of the ruck and certainly stepped up their intensity. Cody Clarke played dummy half all game and was magnificent. Shawn Ingham and Sam Williams play each week with plenty of confidence and it's hard to believe they've only played a few games.

Marcus Riley and Doron Morgan played out wide and consistently involve themselves as much as they can. Flynn Palmer came on in the second half and provided some much needed spark at the right time, darting over for a superb solo try.

Alex Aitkenhead has certainly found his confidence in both attack and defence in recent weeks, stepping up in aggression and making plenty of metres, also kicking a goal. Great game by all. 3 pts Kristian. 2pts Michael. 1pt Kayla. Players of the Week Marcus and Shawn. Medal went to Cody. Pizza Award Talon. Canteen Award Sam.

Highland Ground Spreading under 11's

The Highland Ground Spreading under 11 Colts were at home this weekend against the Crookwell Devils. The season seemed to be a heavy one as even though the Colts were at home they struggled to field a team with only 10 players to take the field.

Those 10 players hit the field as keen as mustard and really shook Crookwell up with an early try. It seemed to take a lot of the spark out of Crookwell as William Lehrmann, Jesse Eljuga, Jayden Donald, Lachlan McGufficke, James Dyball and Lachlan Hemphill drove them back with some awesome defence.

With the ball in hand the Colts powered on running in and out around and through Crookwell's defence. Campbell Wenbam, Travis Kelly, Ronan Bradley and Colby McDonald moved the ball nicely, with some great runs by James Dyball then away went Jesse Eljuga down the side line on the far side everyone was screaming he's in he's in but no, just short of the line measured in millimetres not centimetres. Then Crookwell broke Cooma's defence and got a taste of what a try felt like and their confidence started to grow.

The Colts did not quit as they defended well and chased every opportunity that they saw. Lachlan Hemphill may have been a little tacker but wow what a heart, great running, so as was Daniel Watts defending and bringing up the ball.

Once again great game with the score not reflecting how exciting it was to watch. Final score Cooma 4 Crookwell 36 Medal to Travis Kelly, One Point Daniel Watts, Two Points Jesse Eljuga, and Three Points James Dyball.

Franks Butchery and Inspirations Paint Under 13's

The Franks Butchery Under 13 Cooma Colts played Gungahlin Bulls at Cooma Showground on Sunday.

Cooma started well making inroads with some good runs from Sean Dixon and Damien Fanning but were unable to score.

Gungahlin scored three tries to take the lead to 14 nil and seemed unstoppable, until Jesse Williams hit back with a try of his own.

Gungahlin were too good and were at times scoring at will.

The try tally would have been much higher if it was not for some great try-saving tackles from Josh Newman and Nick Zusak.

With an impressive solo run, Darnell Bartlett literally found gold at the try line when he not only scored, but found two bucks! Darnell shoved the two dollars in his socks and played on.

Although Cooma tried hard, led by their Captain James (Michael Ennis) Hayden, Cooma ended up on the wrong side of a 46-12 score line. Team Award went to Jayden Miners, and Team Medal went to Darnell Bartlett for a great all-round game.

Dodd's Hotel Under 15's

Once again thank you to the under 14's that played with us today, Bill Zammit , Lachie Inskip and Lachlan Jones without you we would find it hard to be able to play each week.

Today's match was always going to be a challenge as Belconnen proved themselves every week staying at the top. Cooma Colts went on strong and confident and that showed in every single person out there.

Right at the start of the game Sharks knocked on and this gave the Colts a chance at the try line but with a tough and enormous wall (sharks) to break through, we were unable to score right away but this didn't deter the mighty Colts and with some strong runs and some fantastic tackles from Will Shingles, Carson Barrett and Jake Hedger the away team was finding it hard to break through the home line as well.

Only holding off the away team for so long, Sharks tried but were not successful in converting , with the ball in their possession again Sharks scored under the posts , converting the try brining the score 10 - 0 .

At half time the Colts gathered and rested and went back on with a whole new lease of life. Kane Furner, Tim and Declan Gregory managed to block and tackle some very big players, also making some great runs was James Walker, Jamie Rogers and Matthew Robinson.

The away team had the Colts on their toes with a couple more tries up their sleeves, but with some quick thinking, determination and side stepping, Jake Hedger was able to try and put the Colts on the score board, and with a beautiful conversion from Alex Rosten brought the final score to 28 - 6 Sharks way. Medal this week went to Jake Hedger.
