2014 Mid-Season Update

Atl 2014 home win

NCTigers Mid-Season Update

After a relaxing month of July that included vacations, weddings, birthdays, and a sprinkling of footy training, it’s time for the Tigers squad to once again hit the training track hard in preparation for the upcoming busy end to the season. The Tigers had a strong and busy start to the 2014 season that saw the team make great strides and progression over their first 3 games.

The team took a relatively inexperienced playing group to Baltimore/DC to open the season on the road and after a slow start, improved drastically throughout the game as rookies learned and the team began to gel. The loss was quickly countered 2-weeks later when the Tigers decisively handled the Atlanta Kookaburras playing positive team football from start to finish. The first half of the season concluded with a trip up north to visit the Philadelphia Hawks with the undermanned Tigers turning in one of their best road performance in recent history. After falling behind in the first term, the Tigers fought back hard for the next three quarters with stellar defense bringing them back to within a kick of the lead in during the last quarter. They would eventual fall just short in a thrilling finish to the game.

With a highly anticipated Metro draft leading into an away trip to Atlanta and a final home game before Nationals, the Tigers need ALL players and supporters to be fully committed for what is going to be an action-packed final 8 weeks of the season. We need all hands on deck back at practice on Saturday, to hone our skills and get the side playing top-quality footy in preparation for our upcoming visit to Atlanta. So JOIN THE HUNT, come on out to practice, and make your travel arrangements for Atlanta and Nationals so we can show the USAFL what the Tigers are made of and enjoy that winning feeling that makes after-match beverages taste that much better.

Next practice: Saturday Aug 16th 10am Brier Creek
