Tigers Overpower Belconnen.
The Tigers NEAFL team capped off a successful day at Dairy Farmers Park on Saturday winning their match against last years Eastern Conference Grand Finalist Belconnen Magpies by 32 points. The curtain raiser matches saw the Tigers 1st Grade and Under 18 Grade Rising Stars win both matches against Ainslie – last years premiership holders in the respective grades.
In perfect conditions the Tigers were only headed in the opening minutes of the game producing a blistering 7 goal second quarter to have the Magpies chasing tale for the balance of the game. To Belconnen’s credit they never gave in and chased what could have been an overwhelming score.
Up forward the Tigers Brett Fruend was dynamic and elusive producing an opportunist 5 goal haul.
Jarrod Atkinson has been a class act for the opening of the 2014 season and posted 3 goals for his efforts. Matt Liddle had a grin from ear to ear after a match producing career best three goals. Six others featured in the goals kicked tally.
