The Colts out scored C-K 25-11 in the first quarter and never looked back, winning 74-44.
"Well the scouting report said that if we pressured them they couldn't be able to with stand it and thats what we did," head coach Peter Kiaja said.

The Colts pressured the Colts so much in the second half that the Colts caused 13 turnovers in the second corner alone.
They out scored C-K 23-8 in the quarter.

Again Jim Purves led the Colts in scoring. He drained seven three-pointers in the game including four in the first quarter.
He accumulated 25 throughout the game.

"We were able to play everybody," Kiaja said. "It allows everyone to stay crisp."

Taylor Perry put an explanation point on the victory with a thunderous dunk near the end of the game.
The Colts will hope to have the same energy when they host Windsor in the SWOSSA final next Wednesday.

"The two teams from Windsor (Windsor Herman and Windsor Riverside) are very good," said Kaija. "Whichever one of those teams wins is going to give us a real battle. Herman beat us in a tournament earlier this year," he added. "We’ll have to be very good to win next week."

Kiaja said that he doesn't know the exact time for the game yet.
