Tigers go on their merry way! The Rococo's Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers have made it 7 straight wins in season 2020 to sit undefeated and on top of the Hart Sport Div 1 ladder.
A five goal to nothing opening quarter set up the win for the home side however the Springwood pumas did show some positive pressure signs in the second quarter to trail by 23 points at the main break. And after some fierce words from Coach Adam Bovalino during the half time break, the premiership favourites came out and blew the game apart with a fast and effective game style and some exquisite kicking skills to match. At the end of the day 70 plus points separated the two teams and it was evident that a gap this big does exist between the tigers and several other sides in the competition.
Coach Bovalino give the find words of direction to his players.

Noosa's midfield brigade of Fraser, Meredith, Laskey and Stack just ran riot all picking up over 30 touches each and used the balk with effective precision. Fraser in particular gathered 35 touches and I cannot remember him Wasting one. Meredith also like being in slow motion as he cut through the centre and constantly hit his forwards with super foot passing. Skipper Aaron Laskey as usual in everything and his consistency of performance has just been amazing for this footy club. Down back young Mac Johnston played a terrific game at centre half back whilst Riley O'Dwyer also defended proudly and found plenty of the footy throughout the afternoon. Up forward it was General Manager Jack Harper who was lively from start to finish. Harper bagged four for the afternoon and I must say his kicking action for goal is something all budding young forwards should follow. Teenager Will O'Dwyer was busy as usual at the fall of the ball but couldn’t find his correct kicking boots kicking 2 goals 4 for the afternoon.
Also a big congratulations to Keenan ’Noss’ James for making his senior debut last Saturday and his aggression and second and third efforts did not go unnoticed. All in all another comprehensive victory for Noosa who this weekend head the Bruce Highway to face the 2nd placed Mayne. Should be a cracker and good even be a grand final preview as these two teams sit well ahead of the rest.

Tony Brennan’s reserves had another strong win and seem to be getting better each week. In what was a great team effort, acting Captain Adam Curry was in everything in the midfield and was well supported by Ben Fuller, Garrett Davies, Tully McDonald and Angus Smyth. Although inaccurate in front of goal the boys are playing a fast and exciting brand of footy. The Coolum/Noosa colts bounced back from their shock loss last week with a massive victory which puts them on top of the ladder, whilst Trompfy’s women sit second on the ladder after another big win in Brisbane defeating Kedron 124 - 0.
On a sadder note, past player and sponsor Bobby Wilson lost his battle with cancer last week. Just a bigger than Ben her character who will be sadly missed in the Noosa community. All teams wore black arm bands in recognition of Bobby's passing.
Good luck to all Noosa tigers teams playing this weekend!
