ON A cold and cloudy Pigeon Park oval on Saturday, the under 17 Saints footballers played an ordinary first half of footy against the Grasshoppers.
Only a couple of players were trying to gain possession of the ball and subsequently Heathcote trailed by a massive six goals at half-time.
After the break, a reinvigorated Saints took to the ground with renewed effort and determination.
The team made an impact on the scoreboard and gave themselves a chance of winning.
However, inaccurate kicking proved costly and despite their efforts the Saints were unable to bridge the gap, with Colbinabbin just too good on the day.
Final score: Colbinabbin 8.6 (54) defeated Heathcote 4.11 (35)
