Tigers Last Quarter Sinks Panthers

Five last quarter goals to South Bunbury saw the Tigers account for Carey Park by 42 points at Hands Oval on Saturday evening before a good crowd.

Carey Park would lead at the first change by two points, before South Bunbury got on top in the second quarter with a five goal to one second quarter.  The Tigers midfield started to dominate, and the home team seemed destined for a routine victory.

No-one told the Panthers this, with the visitors kicking three goals in four minutes towards the end of the third quarter, which set up a close final term with just nine points separating the teams at the final change.

The Tigers though, fired into action very early in the final quarter to put the match out of reach of the Panthers, before going on to win by seven goals.

Martin Thompson played a very good game, getting plenty of the football, while Jordan Strahan continued his excellent form in front of goals, kicking five goals.  Jordan Yarran and Rory O’Brien played well for the Park, with Hayden Yarran their only multiple goal kicker, with two majors.

South Bunbury will now prepare for a top of the table clash against the Hawks, who are fresh off the bye, while Carey Park will host Eaton Boomers on Sunday.
