The NC Tigers rolled into Atlanta last Saturday with numbers, hungry for some Kookaburras! It was a high scoring game with a heated battle in the 1st and 2nd quarter, but after some scuffles in the 3rd the mighty Tigers began to pull away for a final score of 123 to 83.
Some notable talent up front by Austin Doerr as he scored the most goals for the Tigers as he was setup by Andrew Piner after some great crumb work. In addition, two North Carolina State University exchange students, Anthony and Aaron, from Aussie land joined the Tigers for a fantastic weekend in ATL.

NC Tigers host their first night Metro game on a crisp October night. Tigers took the field at 7 PM with great numbers! The black team dominated the first half with newcomers putting in the work. Mike and Pete, who were on the black team, worked the middle without much contest that led to many early goals. After players swapped teams, the white team began to make a comeback, but didn’t have enough to take the lead as they lost 78-42.
After the scrimmage, grill-master Shane cooked some fantastic hot dogs and everyone enjoyed some cold refreshments. Stu brought home a sack full of hot dogs as a snack for later. All in all, it was a great night for footy and thanks to Scott and Red for umpiring!
Saturday was a great day for football and a magnificent win for the North Carolina Tigers! The Kookaburras showed up with a solid team, which made for a tight game in the third quarter, but the Tigers broke away in the fourth quarter.
After the game, family and friends reconvened for fantastic food at Patrick Jane’s Gourmet Pizza Bar & Bistro.
With motivation behind the team, the NC Tigers are traveling to and looking for revenge against Baltimore Washington Eagles Australian Rules Football Club on September 17. So relax this Labor Day weekend, have a Coopers beer, and recharge for the Eagles!

Tigers win big
The NC Tigers and Atlanta Kookaburras met in Fuquay-Varina for another chapter in our storied rivalry. Unfortunately, the Kookaburras were a little short-handed on this road trip. A couple of Tigers volunteered to pull on the green and gold for Atlanta so that we could have a 14-a-side match in the North Carolina heat.
