‘It’s a three peat!’
The Noosa Tigers Senior women have made it 3 from 3 in blustery conditions on Father’s Day and put them name in history as the only ever Senior Noosa Tiger team to go back to back to back!
After a shaky opening stanza with Pine Rivers looking hungrier and kicking with a 3 to 4 goal breeze, the defending champs and favorites found themselves trailing by 2 goals with the Tiger faithful present thinking ’we might be in for a tough day at the office’!
But for the next two quarters it was just a total Noosa Tiger domination. All over the ground their tackling pressure and chase down was first class. The onballers we’re feeding off the terrific work from Keirra Massoud, the forwards were applying unrivalled pressure and the Madi Trompf led defence was as solid as rock and not letting anything through. The skill level shown by the Tigers hit another level in the very windy conditions as they continually hit up leading targets, used clever handball and continued to do the ‘one percenters’ superbly. And whilst the final quarter became a little more scrappy, it was played in the Noosa forward half with Pine Rivers not looking like scoring. Just a fabulous all round performance from our girls who along with our Senior Men (who had their mad Sunday) celebrated late in the night as they should!
There is always standouts in big games like these and the game Sasha Smails played was just brilliantly. The on baller with exquisite skills racked up well over 25 touches and booted 4 goals to be deservedly adjudged best player on the ground. Centre Raegen Mills was not far behind her with a superb four quarter effort. Her attack on the footy and clearance work a highlight all day. Hannah Bebbington booted 5 majors in a awesome display of forward craft whilst skipper and ruckman Keirra Massoud continued to prove why she is easily the best tall girl in the competition with another fine performance! All in all though not a passenger among this group who under Tiger legend Peter Trompf and able assistant Chris Bamback have done what others dream of.Well done to all involved,just a wonderful effort!
Senior Mens teams Vote Count day on Saturday with athletic ruckman come ruck rover Connor McDonald taking out the Senior gong after a fantastically consistent year!
Skipper Aaron Laskey runner up for a record fifth time with gun forward Aaron Wilson making up the medal tally with a third placing after a particually strong second half of the year.
The reserve grade best and fairest was won comfortably by Billy Arnold with 40 year old football director Benny Collins a very commendable runners up. Jesh Morgan deservedly won the Colts Champion Award with Tallis Buntain and Cooper Ogden filling the placings.
Senior Presentation Night including all Mens Grades and our Senior Women is at the Boathouse on Friday the 30th of September! For all enquires please contact Jane Davis!
