Tamworth Tigers savage 16s boys

TAMWORTH Tigers were roaring again at Scully Park on Friday night.

The men’s competition leaders came out firing against the 16s boys, blasting eight past them in the first quarter and going on to win 16-1.

It wasn’t a good night for the 16s sides, with the girls going down to the Sharks 9-6 in their women’s clash.

Eco Energy won the other men’s game, coming back from a first-quarter deficit to defeat Southgate 10-4.

Southgate scored first through Reece Rowbottom and held a 1-nil advantage at the first break.

Eco levelled courtesy of Jordan Sharpe early in the second quarter and then scored twice in the last three minutes to lead 3-1 at half-time.

They were never headed from there. The closest Southgate got to them was two goals and, by the break, Eco had pushed the lead out to five at half-time.

Sharpe topped the goals for Eco with three, while Ryan Martin found the back of the net twice.

In the other game, the Tigers set the tone in the opening minutes. 

They were up 4-nil after only a few minutes. By the break, they’d doubled that.

Jarrod Chester led the first- quarter assault, scoring four of the Tigers’ goals, with Max Colby and Mitchell Salter both chiming in with doubles.

The 16s were able to limit their scoring after that to a degree but the damage was done.

Chester also scored in the second quarter to finish with five.

He was well supported by Salter (4), Colby (2) and Vincent Colby (2).

The women’s game was a tighter affair, with only a goal in three of the four quarters.

The Sharks took control in the second quarter, out-scoring the 16s 3-1 to turn a 2-1 lead into a three-goal advantage.

That was the difference in the end, with the 16s winning the third quarter 2-1 and the Sharks taking the final-quarter honours. 

The Sharks shared the scoring around, with Brooke Millar, Ellee Wallington, Alex Simpson and Alice Lyden all netting doubles. 

Katie Salter did likewise for the 16s, with Giann White, Dolly Powell, Monique Guy and Claire O’Mara adding the extras.
