Tigers on top of table

BOMADERRY notched up a blistering 127-point win over Shellharbour City at Artie Smith Oval on Saturday to claim their third win of the South Coast AFL season and claim top position on the first grade ladder.

The first quarter saw not much difference between the two teams with four goals to the Tigers and three to the Suns putting Bomaderry slightly in front 26-22.

However the second quarter was where Bomaderry really found their stride to keep the Suns scoreless and take their lead to 48-22.

From then on the Tigers completely dominated the field, and with nine goals kicked in the final quarter, Bomaderry pushed the end score to 171-44.

The big goal kickers for Bomaderry were James Lees (6), Andrew Ellis (5) and Brayden Varcoe (4).

Just down the road at West Street Oval, local team Nowra Blues weren’t so successful against Kiama, going down 92-47.

The Blues showed plenty of heart during the whole match, and were within 10 points of taking the lead going into the third quarter.

However four goals to Kiama in the third pushed the visitors even further forward, and by the final whistle Kiama had secured a 45-point lead.

Nowra’s goalkickers were Adam Weller, Brendan Barnes (2), Jayden Cook and Jordan Pearson.

Figtree were left kicking themselves at Figtree Oval after a monumental error saw them penalised in the third quarter for having too many players on the field.

Figtree were ahead 135-44 at the end of the end of the third quarter, but after the error was discovered, their score was reverted back to nil for the fourth quarter.

Despite this Figtree never gave up, but four goals in the fourth was not enough to regain the lead, with Port Kembla takng the win 54-28.  

The other match of the round saw Wollongong defeat Northern Districts 74-52 at Hollymount Park.
