The Tigers started this game like a house on fire. Their passing and movement at times threatened to overwhelm Hilton.  Sharp, Fantarrow and Roberts all went close early on and it was no surprise when Newhall took the lead; Sharp finishing off a well worked corner routine involving Fantarrow and Cantrill.  Hilton hit back strongly spurning several good openings, and it was against the run of play that the Tigers doubled their advantage.  A poor goal kick by the Hilton keeper went straight to Fantarrow who instantly lashed the ball into the net to make it 2-0.


To be fair, Hilton had the better of the second half.  They hit the post and the bar twice before pulling a goal back.  For the first time in the game, the Tigers defence were caught square, and the Hilton number five raced through to finish with some aplomb.  The Tigers did threaten to increase their lead though, following some good long range efforts by Elks, Sharp, Roberts and Fantarrow.  But it was pure spirit and effort that saw the Tigers home.


Tigers star man... Joshua Roberts…Superb performance, never wavering.
