DIV1 MEN INTO PLAYOFF SEMI-FINALS

13 APR 2017 | BY JOHN KENNEDY

Great work from the Div 1 Mens team who took the win over a tough Eagles outfit this evening.
The Eagles started the game strongly with their No9 leading the way and the Eagles led 19-6 after the first period.
Tigers started to find their range in the second period and closed the gap to Eagles, but Eagles did enough to maintain their lead at the end of the second period 29-21.
Into the 3rd period and with 5:44 left in the period, Eagles maintained their lead 32-25, but the Tigers were starting to play themselves into some form and with 3:22 left Tigers took the lead for the first time 33:32. The Eagles regrouped and with both teams on foul trouble the period ended with the game tied at 41:41.
Into the fourth and with the game finely balanced, Eagles No9 received a second technical with 5:35 on the clock and was ejected from the game along with No12. Eagles continued to battle hard in the game and with 3:10 left Tigers led 55:52, however both teams were again in foul trouble which ultimately lead to the Tigers victory as they took full advantage of free throws and ran out 68-54 winners.
