Tigers Juggernaut Rolls On

South Bunbury were way too good for the Collie Eagles on Sunday afternoon at Hands Memorial Oval, winning the round four clash by 106 points under overcast skies.

Jay Crossman played a good game for the Tigers.

The Eagles started the game brilliantly, with Adam Bignell kicking the opening two goals of the match for the Eagles, and when Robert Chitty kicked the visitors third goal with the ball transferring from the backline to the goal line with out being touched by the opposition, the Eagles led by six points.   The Tigers would then very quickly assert their authority on the contest, with Blaine Johnson, Richard Bourne and Lachlan Riley kicking three goals in four minutes to take an eleven point lead into the first break.

Adam Bignell would kick the opening goal of the second quarter, as the Tigers dominated the term and possession, however, their conversion in front of goals was bordering on horrendous, kicking three goals ten for the quarter.

Jayce Fontana kicked the opening goal of the third term, but that would be the Eagles final score as the Tigers kicked the final eleven goals of the match.    Blaine Johnson would kick six goals for the Tigers while Jay Crossman and Kevin Chitty were amongst the best for the Tigers.  Teale DeAngelis was again on of Collie’s best, while Adam Bignell kicked three goals and again played well.

South Bunbury will now travel to Harvey next Saturday evening, while Collie will host Donnybrook on Sunday.  The Tigers win has seen them move to the top of the ladder.
