TOSers outplayed by Hawks

TRINITY Old Scholars dropped to fourth on the ladder after it lost to West Croydon by four goals in division six of the Adelaide Football League on Saturday.
Playing away from home, at Fawk Reserve, the TOSers found themselves trailing early and fighting to bridge the gap thereafter.
Trinity’s winning aspirations were dealt a big blow in the third term with Ryan Roberts going down with a suspected serious knee injury.
After clawing their way back entering the final term, the TOSers were unable to maintain their effort as the last quarter played out.
Alex Cotter was the main threat up forward for the TOSers, kicking four majors, while Carl Teusner chimed in with two.
Andrew Pounendis was named best afield in the loss.
Trinity Old Scholars president Ben Johnson said the side was playing catch-up from early on.
“There were a few injuries early on in the piece,” he said.
“We let them get a four-or five-goal jump on us.”
Johnson said the performance was disappointing, and only a few individual performances stood out.
“It’s pretty hard to find good players out of that one,” he said.
“Captain Jace O’Hara played pretty well.
“Matt Drewett played very well in a tagging role on their best player.”
Trinity now takes on Salisbury West in a must-win match this week.
“It’s a pretty important one,” Mr Johnson said.
“We’re hoping to get a few more blokes available.
“We’ve got to cover Roberts, we’ve had some blokes with some work commitments that are, hopefully, available.”
