Tigers Shoot Down Bombers

Tweed Coast Tigers met the Ballina Bombers at Pottsville Oval in glorious sunshine on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers had a full 22 players for this game with 2 players missing out- John Carlsey and Matt Hoskins. Thanks to both guys for turning up, its tough when you cant get a game.

The Bombers shaded the tigers in the first quarter going into the break 5/2/32 to 4/5/29. The smaller Potty oval enabled the Bombers to get numbers back and around the ball and make every kick or hand pass a real contest. The second quarter was pretty much the same with the Tigers taking a 4 point lead into half time. The score 6/8/44 to 6/4/40.

The third quarter was all Tigers after the bombers lost 2 players to injury. The Tigers piled on 6 unanswered goals to take a huge lead into the final quarter. The score 12/9/81 to 6/5/41. Both teams played out the final quarter with highlights coming from "Air Lingy" and "Air Westy" who took to the skys for attempted marks. Someone in the team will stick one of these "speccies"to write themselves into Tiger folklore some time this season. Players to stand out :

Westy , Sammy , Browny, Luke, Bomes. Thor, Bolty and  Liam

The Tigers ran out victors 15/13/103 to 9/9/63
