Tigers’ big winning weekend

CHHA. Round four of the Circular Head Hockey Association roster began with Tigers thwarting Robins in a 6-1 Division Two showdown.

An early goal through Tigers’ Camilla Woolley quickly started the frenzy and they continued to pressure Robins’ defence with four more goals through Irene Grey (three) and Woolley (two) before the break.

With fresh legs, Robins were able to resist Tigers’ strong midfield selection of Karlette Perry and Hannah Jackson as Mel Porteus and Lydia Brown stood up to defend.

Scoring again through Veronica Dodd, Tigers were caught off guard when Connie Perry was awarded for her consistently strong game with a consolation goal for Robins.

In the second Div Two game of the round, Irishtown and Mustangs suffered an agonising 0-0 draw.

In perfect playing conditions, both sides started strong with neither able to break through their opponent’s defence.

Irishtown stepped up the tempo as Abbie Hite created plenty of drive off through the half line but the forwards were rejected as they entered their attacking half by some great defence work from Mustangs’ Joanie Coker.

With the half-time score set at 0-0 both teams took to the field for an intense second half, however were yet again unable to break the deadlock.

As the time wound down, Irishtown’s luck ran short when the ball hit the backboard just seconds after the final siren to leave the teams walking away with a nil-all finish.

In Div Three action Tigers impressed with a 7-0 win over Mustangs while Irishtown defeated Robins 3-1.
