The weekend started on a cool but perfect Friday night at Angaston when our under 9’s & 11 sides played the Panther teams under lights. The Under 9 Black side came up against a bigger Panthers outfit but acquitted themselves well after a slow start. Award winners were Nate De La Perrelle, Jaxon Renko, Joel Spicer and Jordand Maurits. The Gold side played a fantastic game much to the excitement of the coach. Award winners were Laurience Flores, Jesse Bombardieri, Oscar Chambers and Jaquade Elliott. In the Under 11’s the Black side had a better game than last week but went down to the Angaston side; better players were Josh Green, James Spicer, Lucas Price and Shyla Tucker. The Gold side had another good result getting up over the Panthers with better players being Cameron Kerr, Lachlan Morris, Dean Saunders and Aiden Schubert.

Saturday morning saw the Tiger’s under 13’s take on the Panthers in slippery conditions. In what was a congested game the boys did enough to get the points by 18 points in a low scoring affair. Awards were presented to Wil Schmidt, Seth Collins, Hudson Vivian and Harry Hutchins. Next to take the field was the Under 15’s who got the chocolates in what was a great win for the boys and will give them plenty of confidence the rest of the season. Better players for the Tigers were Jaye Mathews, Clayton Burrows, Michael McInerney and Ross Grady.

Still down on numbers the 17’s fell agonisingly short by 5 points against the Angaston boys in a good game of Aussie rules. Coach Luke Edwards was happy with the endeavor the boys showed particularly the 4 under 15’s playing in the side. No doubt a win for the boys isn’t far away. Better players for the Tigers were T Cameron, O John, Jacob Marsden (still eligible for under 15’s), Lachlan Corbin and J. Fisher.

In what was the reverse of last week’s game the Reserves got off to a slow start against a very slick Angaston side & never recovered eventually going down by over 10 goals. It was disappointing result after the great start to the season last week. Coach Hummel will be expecting more from some of the boys on the track this week. Kyle Hummel continued his sound start to the season and was named best with Beau Mason, Lee Corneliusen, Jason Ashton and Simon Marsden also playing well.

You never take an Angaston side for granted at Angaston and that’s exactly how the game turned out. The game never reached any great heights but it was close all day with little more than two goals separating the teams throughout the game. The Panthers held a slim 3 point lead at the last break and the Tigers had to dig deep to eventually run out winners by 21 points. 2 wins from the first 2 games is a great start to the season and the boys need to keep it going against the Tanunda Magpies this week. Young ruckman Tyson Duffield dominated the hitouts all day named the Tigers best player. Other players to play well were Charlie Molyneux, Corey Solly (4 goals), Trey Mason, Kyle Wurst and Luke Edwards. Coach Matt Whelan was pleased with the win but stressed this week will be harder & everyone needs to get on the track this week.

This week we host the Tanunda Magpies in what will be a real test for all sides. Saturday night the club will be running the Player’s Auction at the club from around 7.30pm. Get your syndicates together & come along and enjoy the fellowship of the club.
