IT was a perfect day for football on Saturday but the only Kalamunda Cougars team to shine was the colts.

They travelled to take on A grade newcomers Wanneroo Roos at the Wanneroo Showgrounds, and in a very close game the colts came out victorious 7.10 (52) to 7.9 (51).

The win kept them in the top half of the ladder on equal points with the third and fourth placed teams.

Kieran Cork and Connor Lucas stood out and were adjudged best on ground and second best.

The reserves played a great first half to be only down by a couple of goals at half time.

A poor third quarter put Wanneroo in the box seat but the Cougars kept fighting in the last to eventually go down 6.6 (42) to 8.14 (62).

Jarred Mason continued his good form in the reserves while Kris Walling was best on ground.

The league side finished off the day at Wanneroo with a very disappointing 5.11 (41) to 16.12 (108) loss.

Having played a great game the week before, the Cougars certainly didn’t bring the same intensity against the Roos.

With four teams only on one win for the year the Cougars need to take the four points against one of those teams, Wembley, this weekend at Ray Owen Reserve.

Back at Ray Owen, the E1s faced powerhouse club Roleystone Tigers.

The Tigers, who have made several grand finals over the past couple of years, flexed their muscles against the Cougars third team running out winners 0.5 (5) to 17.17 (119).

Brad Woodgate awarded best on ground.
