An important victory played in what was monsoon conditions, the team showed their resilience to come from behind to take all three points. Colts started the brighter but found themselves behind in the 18th minute when McGregor struck a wonderful free-kick round the Colts wall from 20 yards which finished high to Cordery�s left, un-saveable.
The Colts went back on the front foot and were unlucky not to equalise when an effort from a corner rebounded off the Welfare bar and out to safety. The concerted period of pressure continued and on 32 minutes the Colts were rewarded with the equalising goal, a planned short corner was whipped in with Brown getting in front of his marker to head home from close range. Colts continued to be in control however the visitors target man was a real handful for the Colts rearguard.
The second half took the same pattern as the first, however it was clear Whitehill were going to fight all the way. Chances at both end came and went, midway through the half the Colts went close when Easton pulled off a great save to his left to keep the teams level. The Colts however were not to be denied and only a minute later a Hunter short rebounded back into his path and he coolly stroked the ball past the helpless keeper. 2-1
Whitehill for the remaining 10 minutes or so through everything at the home defence in search of the equaliser, the clock seemed to have stopped as the referee played a full 5 minutes or extra-time, the Colts however were not to be denied their deserved victory.
