Tigers making their NCFL move with third win in a row

FOR the first time since joining the North Central league last year, Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers have won three games in a row.

And with the Tigers now in second position after round 12, it’s the highest they have been on the ladder in their new competition.

The Tigers knocked Boort out of second position on Saturday with a 29-point victory.

The Tigers held the Magpies goal-less after quarter-time in winning 8.10 (58) to 4.5 (29) at Boort.

Having led 4.0 to 2.2 at the first break, Boort was outscored 6.8 to 0.5 over the final three quarters.

• Birchip-Watchem survived a scare from bottom side St Arnaud.

An upset loomed a possibility when the Saints turned for the last quarter 10 points in front.

However, the Bulls controlled the final quarter, kicking 5.6 to 0.1 to finish 25-point victors – 11.16 (82) to 8.9 (57).

The Bulls’ five-goal final term came on the back of kicking just six for the first three quarters.

• Wycheproof-Narraport kicked six of the last seven goals of its game to defeat Donald by 35 points.

The Royals led by four points 20 minutes into the third term, but with Corey Jones kicking four of his six goals in a 14-minute burst across the third and fourth quarters, the ladder-leading Demons upped the ante to win 13.10 (88) to 7.11 (53).
