Hello, please I need your kindness help with this translation:

That was it – Colonel Fitzwilliam was trying to draw his father’s ire away from James by playing the rake.

my try:

Eso fue todo, el coronel Fitzwilliam estaba tratando de disipar la ira de su padre hacia James intentando quitarle importancia al tema.

is it correct?

Thank you in advance.
