MOROBITO'S TWO GOALS LEADS TIGERS TO VICTORY

June 22, 2017

Senior C League - Round 12 Game 1

Tigers 5 - Jokers 3

 

 

Matt Morobito scored two goals, and added an assist, to lead the Adelaide Tigers to a 5 - 3 win over the Adelaide Jokers in Senior C League action recently.

 

Morobito had a goal in the first and third periods for the Tigers, his first points of the season for the Tigers, who improved their C League record to 5 - 3 for 15 points and second place on the ladder, while the Jokers dropped to 4 - 4 for 12 points and third place in the standings.

 

Division points leader Will Dobud, and teammates Samara Mihal and Jordan Green also added single tallies to round out the Tigers scoring.

 

Jesse Main, Ben Davis, and Luke Burford, with a goal each and Jonathon Bannerman two assists replied offensively for the Jokers.

 

Morobito started playing inline hockey at 13, at the Parks Community Centre, in suburban Adelaide, but the idea of playing ice hockey didn’t really happen until a few years ago when he discovered there was a strong entry level league in Adelaide which did not exist when he was younger. He bought some new gear and has been playing since.

 

“It felt great to get my first points for the Tigers, especially in such an important game. I was worried when we gave away a power play at 3-3, but the team dug a little deeper and came away with an important win.

I think we have a good chance of winning the league this year if we continue to improve and gel as a team,” he said.

 

The Jokers out shot the Tigers 21 - 14 with Chris Moreton stopping 18 shots to record the win for the Tigers, while Jessica Forrest stopped 9 of 14 shots in the Jokers goal.
