In the morning the Colts saw action against Moose Jaw Peacock and controlled much of the play with an aggressive attack resulting in a 6-1 victory.

With the wins over the weekend the Colts are now securely in first place for the regular season and looking to carry the momentum deep into October. “It was good to see many players cycle the ball on such a cold day. The team chemistry is beautiful right now,” said head coach Chris Garner.
The Colts will see their next action at home on October 3.
