A cold frosty morning at Pingle didn't look to be affecting the Tigers as they started quickly against a Hilton side whom we first played in friendlies at U7. Games between the two sides have always been close affairs with the Tigers players still mindful of a last minute Tournament final defeat to Hilton in the Summer.
It was the Tigers who started this contest the brighter, defending well and looking dangerous on the break. Lucas made the breakthrough with a fine individual run and finish inside the first 10 minutes to put the Tigers 1-0 up.
Both sides, upped the tempo following the opening goal and the game was now developing into an end to end contest, with the Tigers now finding themselves caught on the break on several occasions before Hilton grabbed an equaliser. Half time 1-1.
The second half continued in much the same way and after another quick counter attack, the Hilton forward found space and time behind the Tigers back line to take his time, pick his spot, and despatch the ball past Oliver, 1-2.
The Tigers huffed and puffed but struggled to find a way back into this game. Had it not been for another couple of fine saves by Oliver, Hilton might even have added gloss to the scoreline.
