Tigers thump Pumas as their magic run continues

Noosa 19.16-130 defeated Springwood 9.9-63

THE Rococo's Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers AFL side have reversed the tables on Springwood with a thumping 12-goal victory at Weyba Rd last Saturday.

From the start Noosa was relentless and skilful around the midfield and was able to keep the dangerous Puma forwards quiet and away from goal.

In fact, it has been the Tigers' ball transition from defence to attack that has them sitting half a game and percentage on top of the Hart Sport Division 1 Ladder.

Noosa had winners all over the ground but none better than football manager Mitch Woods, who repeatedly found the footy and used great skill and poise when delivering it.

Harry Maher continued his great season with another fine defensive performance, with fellow defenders Lambourne, Gleeson and Laskey all playing their role.

Tyler Stack and the midfield brigade gathered heaps of the footy throughout the match, while big forward Liam Kenny bagged five goals in a strong performance in attack.

All in all a very good four-quarter performance by the Noosa Tigers AFC.

The "team first” mindset that has been implemented by senior coach Sammy Faure is noticeable, with the common theme of "share and care” among teammates clearly shining through.

Spida Everitt was a fantastic addition at our president's lunch and it was fantastic to see many of our 1998 reserves premiership team at the lunch to celebrate 20 years to the day.

Great Tiger names such as Hunt, Trompf, Buntain, Maher, Ellis, Morris, Turner, the Dukes and Keady all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

A great day had by all, with the Tigers' next opponent being the University of Queensland in Brisbane on Saturday.

On a sad note, the passing of long-time Tiger supporter Marshall Dick was duly recognised last weekend, with all condolences to Marshall's family and friends.

Go Tigers!
