SENIORS MATCH REPORT:
â€˜Tigers put cricket score on Burleigh Bombersâ€™
The Rococoâ€™s Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers have arrived and departed the Gold Coast resounding winners over 2019 cellar dwellers Burleigh. The Noosa side completely dominated the game from start to finish to run away with a massive but team orientated twenty goal victory.
Senior coach Adam Bovalino saying â€˜it really was a great all round team effort. I know the score heavily weighs in our favour but I was so pleased with how we went about it. The boys never wavered from their structures and continually put each other into better positions. It was pretty systematic with nine different goal kickers and no goal hogging which often happens in one sided affairs. A top effort by all!â€™
Silky on-baller Jai Fitzpatrick was brilliant for the victors racking up a game high 43 touches,4 tackles and 3 goals including a 70 metre torpedo that had the crowd in raptures. Fitzpatrick was ably supported by fellow on-ballers Hill, Woods and Stack who all finished the game with high possession loads and heaps of score involvements. Key debut forward Hayden Brock booted five in his first senior game for the Tigers and didnâ€™t look at all out of place whilst big Ryan Jeffery booted three also.
Corey Boardman played more as a permanent forward booting four goals in a terrific display and is hitting top form at the right time of year. Pint sized playmaker Will Oâ€™Dwyer also kicked four goals in an exciting display of skill whilst ruckman/forward Connor McDonald was super impressive the entire day booting four goals also to be among the best once again. Down back Ryley Buntain and Harry Maher marshalled the troops beautifully in the absence of skipper Aaron Laskey whilst youngster Will McKenzie was fantastic off half back showcasing his clean skill and hardness at the pill.
A total team effort with the Tigers back at home this Saturday with the third placed Springwood waiting. A win for the Noosa side and a guaranteed home second semi final awaits – one not to be missed!
Hawthorn premiership player and controversial media figure Campbell Brown entertains us at our second last Presidentâ€™s Luncheon for 2019 and from all reports he is a ripper. As per usual, should be a great day again at Tiger land and also good luck to all our junior teams who continue their seasons after an extensive school holiday lay off.
