ROUND 4: MATCH REPORT

Tigers give students a lesson!  

It was another 100 point victory for the Rococo Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers over Uni of QLD last weekend. T his win sees the Tigers go into the Easter break one game and a heap of percentage clear on top of the QFA Division 1 Hart Sport Ladder  

Whilst it was one sided for the most part, it took until just after half time for the ladder leaders to really blow the students away with superior skill and fitness. Senior coach Adam Bovalino again praised his squad saying ‘it really was a pretty complete performance. There were stages during the game our younger crew probably tried to be a tad fancy but we addressed that and generally played the way we wanted to . I thought our defence was just outstanding , I mean to only concede two goals against a club that was playing a higher competition two years ago was a super effort. We’re really happy and proud of the boys committed approach up to the Easter break with a couple of big away games against Maroochydore and Springwood to come. We can’t wait for the challenge and will certainly get a much better idea of where we are at’, said Bovalino.  

In such a one sided result there were many good players for the victors and none better than gun defender Riley Buntain who was just impassable at centre half back repelling us forward with poise, flair and skill. Buntain has had a terrific start to the season and was once again helped out by skipper Aaron Laskey who rarely puts a foot wrong. Their protection and delivery of the footy a continual highlight of the day.  

Seventeen year old Will McKenzie put in a blinding performance up forward showcasing super clean skills and a willing to attack the football.
Gun midfielder Tyler Stack was again among the best racking up 31 touches to continue his awesome start to season 2019. Mitch Woods was prominent again on his wing whilst Holt and Fitzpatrick both collected near 30 possessions a piece. Connor McDonald was very impressive as a key forward as he consistently keeps on having strong influence on match day with Nick Sutton up forward again finishing the day with 5 majors.  

All in all another big win for the Rococo Bar & Bistro Tigers as they go into the Easter break as the ones to catch thus far. Hope everyone at the Tigers has a fun and safe Easter with a big thanks also to Geelong great Michael Turner who entertained us at the President’s lunch last Saturday.

Our next speaker is Collingwood Great Dane Swan on May the 11th – with tickets already selling fast Go Tigers!  
Cheers Pittsy
RESERVES MATCH REPORT  
Noosa AFC: 21.12 – 138
Uni of QLD:  2.5 – 17  

With key players out, the Reserves took on University of Queensland with a young team leading the way. Up forward it was first gamer Hayden Brock and Adam Curry kicking four goals each who were standouts right from the outset.  

The forwards were given great supply by veteran Gary Wallace in the midfield who was easily best afield for the Tigers. Gary still hasn’t lost his pace which is a credit to him considering the amount of games he has played for the club.  
In defence it was our young guns who all committed to the cause and showed that the future is bright for the Rococo Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers.
Noah Evans, Clem Harford and Paddy Broman rebounded many of Uni of Qld’s forward thrusts and really showed they have a lot to offer at senior football.  

Coach Tony Brennan (who is now four wins from four matches) was pleased with the boys’ performance highlighting that ‘it really was a four quarter effort. Every player contributed to the fantastic win and I’m very pleased with how the team is gelling this early in the season’.
