TIGERS FIRST PERIOD GOAL ENOUGH TO BEAT BLACKHAWKS
Senior B League - Round 15 - Game 1
Tigers 2 - Blackhawks 0
The Adelaide Tigers scored once in the first two periods and that was enough to beat the Adelaide Blackhawks 2 - 0 in a low scoring Round 15 Senior B League game last week at Thebarton.
The Tigers led 1 - 0 after the opening period and then carried a two goal margin into the final period. Both teams battled through a scoreless third frame.
Jeremy Klein and BJ Letheby each scored single goals for the Tigers who with the win improved their record to 11 - 4 - 0 - 1 for second place on the four team ladder. The Hawks drop to 2 - 13 and in fourth place in the standings.
Klein also added an assist on the Letheby goal, with team mate Alexi Filinkov (pictured) contributing to the win with an assist on each goal.
The Tigers outshot the Hawks 20 - 17, with Claudia Tom recording the victory and her first shut out of the season for the Gold n’ Black. Sam Poole stopped 18 of 20 for the Blackhawks.
