ROUND 16 MATCH REPORT: SENIOR AND RESERVES

SENIORS MATCH REPORT:

‘Tigers jammed the Pumas’

The Rococo’s Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers have hammered the third placed and highly fancied Springwood by 15 goals at the Noosa Village Autos Oval last Saturday.

Another strong Noosa crowd witnessed a complete Tiger avalanche as the local boys totally dominated contested ball especially during the first three quarters. The win guarantees Noosa a home second semi final on August the 17th and senior coach Adam Bovalino couldn’t have been happier. ’I’m just really proud of the way you blokes continually go about it. I know there is still a long way to go but if we stick to our team first ethos and follow our structures we’ll be very hard to beat from here’, Bovalino said in the rooms after the game.

Of course in such a one-sided win there were many good players for the Tigers. Up forward Hayden Brock booted six goals in another great performance at senior level. Teenager Will O’Dwyer bagged four majors in another eye-catching display by the skilful playmaker. Big man Ryan Jeffery kicked three goals and was as equally effective in the ruck also. Connor McDonald ran his opponent off his legs at centre half forward as he continues a very good season. On-ballers Tyler stack and Mitch Woods had a field day collecting 38 and 41 touches respectively to be surely in the votes in what was a comprehensive victory. Holt continues his great year with another skilful display whilst Fitzpatrick and Hill were busy as usual.

Down back Ryley Buntain was again a standout in the absence of skipper Aaron Laskey whilst young Will McKenzie showed he can play a variety of roles with a terrific performance across half back. Maher and McCrimmon as usual very solid in what was a very impressive win by the top of the table Tigers

Back at home this weekend as we host Aspley on past players day and welcome Greg Ritchie (known as one of the best after dinner speakers in the country) as guest speaker on our 2019 Mega Auction Day with tickets selling like hot cakes!

A massive thank you to Campbell Brown who completely wowed the crowd at last weekend’s President’s Luncheon. Thank you to all who attended – especially our great band of junior coaches and managers. Best of luck to all junior Tiger teams this weekend and a big congrats to Dylan Evans who sensationally made the All Australian inclusion team after a brilliant carnival in Sydney last weekend – coached by our very own Rob Purves! How good is that? Go Tigers!

RESERVES MATCH REPORT:

The reserves were back on home turf to take on the 4th placed Springwood.

It was a scrappy low scoring first half with the home side holding a 21 point lead at half time.

The second half was a totally different story with Noosa dominating every part of the game.

The run and spread was a feature as the young cubs piled on 13 second half goals to run away 101 point winners. Big ruckman Tyson Williams was the home side’s best with Adam Curry, Harry Opie, Connor Templeton and Nathan Winter all excellent contributors for the victors
