Big First Practice

The North Carolina Tigers first practice was on Saturday and it was a huge success. A total of 15 players showed up with many new faces! The weather was sunny and a bit chilly with the blistering wind, but that didn’t stop the mighty Tigers from shaking off the cobwebs with hand and kicking drills.

The 2018 season may also see the return of a NC Tiger veteran, Nick Camilleri. Nick is an aussie transplant who has been a leader on and off the field, but was out last season due to injury. With new recruits and the return of a seasoned veteran, stay tuned for a very exciting season!

Tigers continue their undefeated season to Nationals!

The Baltimore Washington Eagles Australian Rules Football Club hosted “A Day of Aussie Football in DC” in early September. Both women and men’s teams joined in the Capital for a fantastic day of footy.


The Tigers were looking to continue their winning record against theaus Eagles’ B team as the first quarter was very tight, but the mighty Tigers pulled away in the second quarter. However, don’t underestimate the Eagles as they were able to catch up to only a 4-point deficit. With some big goals from Tiger’s Austin Doerr and Mike Hoffmann, the Tigers were able to seal the deal 59-47!

Big win at home


Apologies for not posting earlier! Towards the end of August, the Atlanta Kookaburras traveled to Tiger territory for a gorgeous Saturday night game. The match was hosted at the beautiful MAC Sport and Entertainment Center with recently renovated fields. The NC Tigers had a huge showing of roughly 30 gents, so we gave a few to the Kookaburras.

The first quarter was relatively even until the first goal was scored by David Seymour, an Englishman and a great addition to the Tigers. The NC Tigers began to pull away in the second and third quarter, but some adjustments on the Kookaburras side in the fourth closed the gap, but it wasn’t enough as the Tigers won with a 20-point lead!

Huge win against the Philadelphia Hawks; 48-44!

Last Saturday was a day for the books! The NC Tigers traveled to Philadelphia to take on the Philadelphia Hawks Australian Football Club! The Tigers brought a small team of only 16 players which allowed for two subs and with veteran players Nick Camilleri and Scott Bradley out of the picture, the NC Tigers still brought home a “W” with a final score of 48-44.
Everyone contributed with Andrew Wesche and Stuart Mckenzie making huge stops to secure the back line. New comer Mark Washington dominated one of the mid-field wing positions. Nelson Santos and Austin Doerr each scored three goals and old-timer Albert punched one through as well!
The Tigers are pumped-up and hungry to take on the Atlanta Kookaburras Australian Rules Football Club on August 26. Plan accordingly to come out and see the mighty NC Tigers! Details to come.
