Match Report – Round 9 v Mayne

Tigers win 8 in a row!

The Rococo’s Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers go into the half way mark of the season sitting on top of the Hart’s Sports Division 1 Ladder after a thumping 80 point win over Mayne FC in Brisbane last Saturday.

From the very early stages of the opening quarter the intensity and polish with ball in hand was all Noosa as they continually drove the ball forward. In fact Noosa’s ball movement has really been a significant factor in their stellar season thus far as they forever change direction and confidently hit targets.

The Tigers defence were just superb holding a pretty strong named Mayne outfit on paper to less than 5 goals. Up forward once again the Tigers were not relying on one or more key forwards to kick a winning score however more so adopting the Richmond like ‘share and selfless’ attitude. Corey Boardman was the standout of the day amassing 28 touches and bagging 2 majors to continue his consistent 2018 and confirm why the Noosa Tigers were so keen to regain his services from a stint at Wilston Grange. Cairns recruit Jayden Holt continues to impress with his strong attack on the footy and good foot skills – he is really starting to work his way into the season and stamp his authority on the competition. Nick Hill was sublime the entire day kicking 3 goals and collecting 31 disposals whilst long time Noosa Tigers juniors Jai Fitzpatrick and Peter Trompf were easily among the tigers best. It was a clinical team first display by the ladder leaders who now go into the bye weekend in a really strong position.

No game this week (bye) before the Rococo’s Bar & Bistro Tigers head back to Weyba road to take on Springwood who flogged third places Caloundra last Saturday and are the only team thus far to topple the Noosa Tigers. It should be an absolute beauty as should our presidents lunch with Peter Spida Everitt. His relaxed demeanor and life experiences should be great to see and listen to. Good luck to all Noosa Tigers junior teams competing this weekend

Go Tigers Cheers Pittsy
