CHHA. An impressive attacking display in round six led Tigers to a 6-0 thrashing of Mustangs, with Robins rolling on to take care of Irishtown 3-0.
The red and white remain without a loss so far this season at the top, but Tigers’ 15 goals in the past four matches see them in a strong position not far behind the league leaders.
Irishtown have now lost their last two matches and sit in third, while Mustangs have not tasted a victory since round one of the competition.
Robins didn’t give their opposition any time to settle on Friday night, scoring two early goals before Irishtown were able to push themselves into the game.
Laura Tuson and Laura Berechree worked hard for their respective teams, acting as a key target in midfield and switching the play from left to right several times.
Neither side was able to penetrate the goals again in the first half, but Robins scored a goal late in the second to seal the win.
On Saturday, Tigers earned an impressive victory over Mustangs, dominating from the first whistle with strong team play creating havoc for their opposition’s defence.
With four goals on the board by half-time, the Tigers looked to continue their momentum and stay in control, with the side’s experience shining through to add two more goals despite Mustangs constantly pressuring the defence.
Gina and Hannah Jackson were best on ground for Tigers along with Karlette and Connie Perry, while Mustangs’ Daria Reeve had another top game and was supported well by Tei Popowski, Jess O’Halloran and Leanne Innes-Smith.
In Division 3, Tigers and Robins played out a 2-2 draw and Irishtown Green took the spoils over their gold counterparts with a 4-0 win.
