Trinity inaccurate, but victorious

TRINITY Old Scholars remains in the top half of the Adelaide Football League division six table following a 76-point win over Brahma Lodge on Saturday.

The TOSers never had control over the game until the last quarter, where they peppered the goals.

At full time, Trinity had kicked an inaccurate 17.21 to Brahma’s 7.5.

Alex Cotter was the star up forward with six goals, while Jack Millar, Stefan Cavallaro and Ryan Clarke kicked two each.

Trinity coach Stephen Couzner said, despite his side’s inaccuracies, he was pleased with the win.

“Overall, yeah, it was a good performance,” he said.

“To be quite honest, it was only about three or four goals at three-quarter-time, and we piled on about nine goals in the last quarter.

“What kept them in it was that we kicked poorly in the first half.

“I don’t think we took full toll, we played good enough to be comfortably in front.”

Couzner again praised the work of ruckman Sam Peters, who has dominated in the middle this season.

“He’s in a rich vein of form,” he said.

“Travis Eves and Ryan Roberts were also  pretty good.

“Alex Cotter kicked a lazy six, and then spent half of the last quarter on the bench.

“Overall, it was pleasing – we kept Brahma Lodge to a pretty low score, there’s a lot of good signs again that we’re trying to play the right footy.”

Trinity will take on Adelaide Lutheran this week, but will be without Andrew Pounendis who fractured his eye socket.

“They got their first win against Greenacres and we’re going to their ground, which is a bit of a test,” he said.
