Senior C League - Round 19 - Game 1
Tigers 5 - Falcons 3
Will Dobud (pictured) and team mate Bradley Christie both scored two goals each to lead the Adelaide Tigers to a 5 - 3 Senior C League victory against the Adelaide Falcons last Sunday at Thebarton.
The victory improved the Tigers record to 9 - 5 - 0 - 0 for 27 points, nine points back of the first place Redwings, but only one point in front of the charging Adelaide Jokers, who are sitting in third place with 26 points.
Both the Jokers and Tigers have played 14 games, so the next four rounds will bring out the best in both clubs.
Erin Pedder scored the Tigers other goal , while Falcon’s mainstay Ric Dent scored two goals, and Dan Waterman adding a single for Big Blue. The Blackhawks (13 points), and the Falcons (6 points) have been eliminated from finals contention.
The Tigers led 3 - 1 after the first, but the Falcons stormed back when Dent and Waterman tied the game at 3 - 3, setting up an exciting third and final period.
The Tigers outshot the Falcons 29 - 19, with Chris Moreton making 26 saves to lead his team to the win, while Falcons goalie Lachlan Johnson stopped 14 of 19 shots fired in his direction.
