Tigers Go Down in Windy Conditions


Kicking with the wind for the first quarter the Tigers just couldn’t buy a goal. With some light drizzle in patches the ball got greasy but that didn’t stop our forward line entries. Not capitalising in front of goals was costing us kicking only 4 points to Vic Point’s 1.1. The second quarter saw plenty of good movement of the footy with Redcliffe hugging the wings and Victoria Point playing more direct and this was evident in the score board pressure with the Tiges only managing another 4 points to their 2.3 taking the half time scores to us on 8 points and them 3.4 (22). In the half time break the frustration was felt by all and the coaches asked for a big lift from the boys and we knew we had work to do with our inaccurate kicking making it a tough job ahead. In the third quarter we came out ready to take the game on and Niv got the first goal on the board, closely followed by Foles kicking truly to make it a ball game. Just before the scuffle broke out Nix took a mark on the wing and was awarded a 100m penalty to put him right in front and kicked the 3rd for the day. Bondy, Rolls, Cook and Seth were giving plenty around the ground to drive the ball forward as was Stevie Helliwell, Jye and Fraze rebounding off half back. Billy Beattie was a great target for us at CHF. Late in the quarter Ricky Milligan and Kingo chimed in for another 2 goals to give us a small lead of 7 point going into the last change.  The wind decided to pick up favouring the opposition but we knew their was a game to be won. An early goal to the Tiges with Foles in his first game back and absolutely everywhere made the most of a play on decision handballed over the top to Niv to run into an open goal and things were looking up. The youngsters Recce, Rhino and Heathy all had their hands on the footy playing their part. But from here the VP midfielders started to get on top with Sauce doing his best in a shut down roll still managing to get his hands on the footy. The flood gates opened however with all the pressure now on our defense with Tyson Brown running and spoiling all day with Springer and Dave Mac giving us heaps in the last line. Unfortunately we had not done enough for the first 3 quarters with VP using the wind to their advantage banging on 7.4 to take the game out by 5 goals. The Tiges travel to Park Ridge to take on the Pirates next game hunting for their first win. Let’s stick together Tiges and the results will come!
