Colts travelled to Ambleside for this top of the table clash. The first 20 minutes saw the visitors absorb huge amounts of pressure, but committed defending from Harry, Gabe and Oscar ensured the attacks were nullified. As the half progressed Colts were playing their way back into the game with Somi, Archie and Thomas looking dangerous on the counter attack.

Ambleside scored goals either side of the halftime break, but Colts reacted immediately with Jack, Nathan, Danny, Finn and Alfie challenging the midfield. Will and Devan were drafted into defence to great effect. Colts were looking threatening and Somi’s goal after a penetrating run brought them back into contention, along with a string of fine saves from Matt. Colts had several chances to equalize with Thomas and Archie both seeing chances cleared off the line, but the game ended with a fortuitous goal for Ambleside. A great team effort against a fast, well drilled team.
