Reserve Match Report from Coach Ben Smith

Port Melbourne Colts 23.15.153 def St Kilda City 2.1.13

Round 1 for the Port Colts Reserves saw a dominant display of team first  football.

The Colts started with a bang to generate 13 scoring shots to none whilst dominating stoppages and owning the corridor. Arlyn Hagiwara carried his red hot 2016 form into Round 1 booting the Colts first two majors. It was all business after quarter time with the Colts confirming their arrival in Division One Reserves Football with a 140 point victory. The team’s willingness to use the first option coupled with outstanding link up play provided the result the side was after.

Co-Captain Phil Karaminovski was outstanding as were Hery Cristanto, Tom Merrett, Ben Wilson and best on ground – Rob Cornwell.

With many players still to return to this side, selections are tight and the health and depth of the side is in great shape.
