‘Tigers demolish the students!’
The Rococo's Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers have produced a stunning 10 goal final quarter to inflict a 17 goal thumping over the boys from UQ last Saturday in Brisbane.
It extends Noosa’s grip on top spot of the Hart Sport Div 1 competition as they remain unbeaten and clear favourites to go back to back this year. Jai Fitzpatrick or the rolls Royce as he is referred too by the Tiger faithful put on a masterful performance booting 5 goals and dazzling the punters that made the trip with vast array of skill and evasion. Again Fitzpatrick is having a stellar year, as is Tyler Stack who again racked up 30 plus touches through the midfield and fed the forwards with smart and precise delivery. Champion onballer Nick Hill returned to the seniors and played a very big part in the win as did pier forward and fellow 2019 premiership team mate Liam Kenny who bagged 4 goals after a two week lay off. 16 year old Shadeau Brain was again amongst the Tigers best with another eye catching display whilst the consistent form of Mitch Fraser makes him one of the elite players in the competition. Aspley await this week back at our Weyba rd headquarters which should be an intriguing contest. Only 3 points separated these two teams the last time they played. Once again the Senior game will be live streamed on the Noosa Tigers Facebook page so if you can’t make it to the ground, make sure you tune in. A beautiful sunny day should make for a huge crowd in our second last home game of the fixture season.
Jai Fitzpatrick runs away with the ball against Mayne earlier this year.
Plenty to like about our reserves also as they pumped the students by 138 points. Skipper Keenan James continued his good form for the twos with GM Jack Harper a focal point up forward booting 4 majors and stalwart Nathan winter putting pressure on senior selectors also with another fine performance. The reserves sit second only by percentage and get the chance to avenge their only loss of the season against Aspley this weekend.
The colts under the irrepressible Shane Dawes as coach had a fantastic win over fellow flag contenders Victoria point in South Brisbane last Saturday to extend their unbeaten run in season 2020. Co captain Cian Mallon was outstanding for the colts with Ben Woodburn(4 goals) Lachie Wilson and Max Pekaj the best for the Coolum Noosa boys. Kye Wood also a standout in the very impressive victory.
Our Mischief Hair sponsored women continued their rich reign of form with a thumping 82 point win at home last Saturday afternoon. Gun power forward Cass Hoekstra booted 5 goals in a best on ground performance to enhance her stature as one of the premier players in the competition whilst Eliza Trompf and Jessica Corvino continue to shine for the 4th placed Tigers. Reagan Mills gathered plenty of the ball as usual with the women at home also this Saturday following the seniors in what will be a very big day at Tigerland. See you down there!
Good luck to all Noosa Tiger teams this weekend!
