TIGERS HANG ON FOR HARD FOUGHT WIN OVER THE WINGS
IHSA SENIOR A - ROUND 1 - GAME 2
Tigers 5 Red Wings 3
The Adelaide Tigers jumped to a 3 - 0 first period lead and then never looked back en-route to a 5 - 3 win over the Redwings in the second game of the Senior A League Round 1 action.
Tim Moran paced the Tigers victory with two goals, with Simon Jarrad, Eric Lien and Wes Pearson adding single tallies.
With the Tigers holding a 3 - 1 verdict after the first period, both teams battled through a scoreless second frame, setting up a very exciting finish in the third.
Down by one goal late in the game, the Wings pressed hard to get the equaliser, but then Pearson put the game out of reach for the Tigers, scoring with less than two minutes on the clock.
Jed Rillera, Tyson Boundy, and Nick Pedder scored for the Redwings.
