The Rococo Noosa Tigers battled bravely against the second placed Redlands last Saturday going down by 28 points in front of a healthy home town crowd.
With a 3 or 4 breeze favouring the Weyba Rd end of the ground, Redlands jumped out to a flyer to kick the first four goals of the game and take a handy lead into the first break.
Noosa dominated the second stanza mainly through the brilliant play of Will ODwyer whose first half was just outstanding. Infact aside from errant goalkicking by the Tigers, the half time deficit could have been even closer. Redlands upped the ante in the second half with a strong team defence and were able to run out comfortable victors.
Plenty of good contributors for the Tigers with tall swing man Maccy Johnston awarded the best player at the after match awards in what was an excellent 4 quarter performance. Jai Fitzpatrick and Seb Rogers battled manfully the entire day in the middle whilst defenders Monahan, Flagg, Vernon and Mcrimmon were terrific for Noosa the entire day.
The Tigers have a must win away game against Mt Gravatt this Saturday in Brisbane to keep their season alive. The improvement in team connection over the past month extremely noticeable!
