The Tigers were beaten by a good side without doubt.  Though they matched Belvedere for most of the game, the Tigers never really did enough to get anything out of the match.

Newhall's only chance of breaking through came midway through the first half, when Sharp struck a post after a fine move involving Shakespeare and Fantarrow.  Belvedere took the lead late in the first half; a corner was only half cleared and the ball was volleyed home at the far post.

The killer goal came early in the second half.  Belvedere broke down the left hand side, and Newhall’s Taylor, who was poised to clear, looked to have been fouled, as he had his boot knocked clean off.  Taylor stopped, as did most of the Tigers, waiting for the ref’s whistle, but it never came.  The ball was cut back, and the onrushing forward fired his shot into the corner of the net to make it 2-0.

Although the Tigers did everything they could to get back into it, they would always be vulnerable on the break.  And so it proved late on, when Belvedere’s best bit of football put the gloss on the result.  Belvedere’s winger roasted the Tigers down the left hand side, and produced a fine finish to give Collins no chance.

Tiger star man…Tristan Sharpe… ran his socks off for little reward.
