PEDDER'S GOAL ENOUGH TO BLANK THE JOKERS
Senior C League - Round 16 - Game 2
Tigers 1 - Jokers 0
Erin Pedder’s (pictured) power play goal with less than a minute left in the second period was enough to power the Adelaide Tigers to a hard fought 1 - 0 victory over the Adelaide Jokers in Senior C League action recently at Thebarton.
Pedder fired the game winner while the Jokers’ Ben Davis was in the sin bin serving a minor for roughing. The popular Tigers forward took a pass on a setup from Matt Morobito and Cameron Jones and then beat Jokers net minder Mathew Peterson for the only goal of the match, her first goal of the 2017 season.
The victory improves the Tigers record to 8 - 4 for 24 points and sitting in second place on the five club ladder. The loss was a tough one for the Jokers (5-5-1-0) who had hoped to gain some ground in the standings as they battle the Blackhawks (3 - 8 - 0 - 1) for the last finals spot.
The Tigers out shot the Jokers 18 - 17, with Chris Moreton stopping all 17 shots to register his first shut out of the season. Peterson, continues to play a big role in the Jokers run for a finals spot, and he was again up to task, matching Moreton with 17 stops, all but for Pedder’s winning tally in the second.
Both sides return to Senior C League action Thursday 10 August with the Tigers facing off against the first place Wings in the early 7:00pm game, followed by the Falcons and Jokers in the 8:30pm match.
