THE Bomaderry Tigers chalked up their first win of the AFL South Coast men's premier division on Saturday, by defeating the Shellharbour City Suns 9.13-67 to 5.6-36.
After a tough opening round loss, Matt Barnes' side started the match strongly at Myimbarr Oval, to lead by two points at quarter-time.
That lead stretch to six points by the main break - which would have been more if not for the inaccurate kicking of the Tigers.
But the visitors blew the game apart in the third quarter, kicking six goals to none, before running out 31-point winners in the fourth quarter.
In the victory, Jack Boxsell kicked three goals while Adrian Toms and Robert Bleumink booted two each - with Brent Herdman and Terry Kager contributing one a piece.
Leading the way for the Tigers was birthday boy Connor Clarke, as well as Tristan Craig, Tyler Dunstan, Jake Evans, John Muggleton and Rhys Arnold.
Earlier in the day, Geoff Gibbs' premier women's side dismantled the Suns, who were playing their first ever game, 9.14-68 to 0.1-1.
Sophie Phillips, Tiffany Weynberg and Katie Sargent all kicked two goals in the big win, while Lily Macdonald, Emma Dowse and Maddison Pearson all got on the score sheet too.
In their second big win of the year, Dowse was named best on ground, closely followed by Jess Liddiard, Bridget Kellett, Weynberg, Jaimi-Lee Gibbs and Josie Cousins.
Unfortunately, the Tigers third team - their division one men's side - went down to crosstown rivals Nowra-Albatross 12.16-88 to 4.2.26 at West Street Oval.
Brad Barnes kicked three goals for the Vikings in the win, with Mark Everard and Michael Pelda getting two each - as Dale Richardson was the Tigers only multiple goal-kicker with two.
Elsewhere, the Bay and Basin Bombers division one women's side recorded their first ever win, smashing Albion Park 12.5-77 to 4.2-26, while the Vikings women's were hammered by Dapto 12.14-86 to 0.0-0 - which marked the latter's first ever win in the competition.
The only other premier men's game, as the Kiama and Lions game was deferred, saw Figtree belt Northern Districts 17.12-114 to 6.3-39, while Norths defeated Wollongong Saints 9.10-64 to 2.0-12 in the final premier women's fixture.
