Match Report: Round 10 v Springwood

The Rococo’s Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers have reversed the tables on Springwood with a thumping twelve goal victory at Weyba road last Saturday. Right from the word go Noosa were just too relentless and skilful around the midfield and were able to keep the dangerous Puma forwards quiet and away from goal. In fact it has been the Tigers ball transition from defence to attack that has them sitting half a game and percentage on top of the Hart Sport Division 1 Ladder.

Noosa had winners all over the ground but none better than football manager Mitch Woods who repeatedly found the footy and used great skill and poise when delivering it. Harry Maher continued his great season with another fine defensive performance with fellow defenders Lambourne, Gleeson and Laskey all playing their roll. Tyler Stack and the midfield brigade gathered heaps of the footy throughout the match whilst big forward Liam Kenny bagged five goals in a strong performance in attack. All in all a very good four quarter performance by the Noosa Tigers AFC.

So noticeable is the team first mindset that has been implemented by Senior Coach Sammy Faure with the common theme being the ‘share and care’ amongst teammates clearly shining through. Spida Everitt was a fantastic preview at our Presidents lunch and fantastic to see many of our 1998 Reserves Premiership team at the lunch to celebrate 20 years to the day. Great Tiger names like Hunt, Trompf, Buntain, Maher, Ellis, Morris, Turner, the Dukes and Keady all thoroughly enjoying themselves as they should. A great day had by all with the Tigers next opponent being the University of QLD in Brisbane on Saturday. On a sad note, the passing of long time tiger supporter Marshall Dick was duly recognised last weekend with all condolences to Marshall’s family and friends.

Go tigers!
