Macs Window Tinting under-8s

Biajag Constructions under-9s

Both the club’s Black and Gold teams showed some outstanding skills in what were two extremely competitive games.
Canberra Truck Align under-10s
THE Tigers under-10s hosted the Weston Creek Wildcats at Halloran Oval last start. While the Wildcats shaped up as formidable opponents, Queanbeyan produced probably its most complete performance of the season to more than match it with their rivals from across the border.
Of particular note was the performance of Leo Tuckfield who received an award on the day for displaying a level of sportsmanship above and beyond. The side’s remaining award winners were Jack Foster, Samuel Frost and Leo Palombi.
Bakers Delight Jerrabomberra under-12s
Queanbeyan’s under-12s celebrated Jack Nisbitt’s 50th game in triumphant style with a convincing win over the Calwell Swans last start at Steve Mauger Oval.
The Tigers ran out victors 7.7 (49) to 3.8 (26) as Queanbeyan dominated the contest from the outset. Tom McNamara was the first goal scorer to get on the board for the home side before Jacob Pankasz and Jasper Barnett added two more majors in the second term.
The Tigers continued in a similar vein after the main break with goals to Harry Grant and Jack McNamara. A six-pointer to Jasper Barnett and a second to Tom McNamara in the fourth term secured the result.
Award winners were Jack Nisbett, Hugh Clark and Lachlan Forder.
Stevens Charter Services under-14s, division 2
THE Queanbeyan Tigers under-14s division 2 side produced a solid win over Goulburn in round 8. After a closely contested opening term, the Tigers kicked clear after the first break with Matthew McKenzie, Lachlan Squire and Trent Britton grabbing five goals between them.
Queanbeyan’s backline also combined well as Tyler Van Luin, Jordy Perkins and Thomas Cameron worked to restrict the Goulburn attack. The Tigers midfield of Joe Page, Jackson Street and Connor Hogan also provided plenty of opportunities for Queanbeyan’s forward line.
Kaleb Hill-Rogerson and newcomer Matthew Coleman continued to show plenty of improvement while Jayson Corbett was busy around the packs. Award winners were Matthew Coleman, Jarod Peterson and Josiah Hall.
Bendigo Bank Jerrabomberra under-14s, division 1
THE Tigers under-14s division 1 team was completely outplayed by Marist in its last start, going down 15.11 (101) to 2.1 (13) at Hughes Oval.
Finley Hollyhead, Jack Silver and Ben Lee gave their all for the Tigers in a badly beaten side. Finley was rewarded for his efforts with a goal while Nathan Organ was the Tigers other goal kicker.
Tristan Craig meanwhile, performed strongly after being promoted to the team for the week.
Officework Fyshwick under-16s division 2
The Queanbeyan/Goulburn Tigers Under 16s division 2 side travelled to Hughes to take on Marist on Saturday.
The Tigers backline played well throughout with Jordan Miller leading the way in stopping Marist’s ball movement in its tracks. Brad Murphy and Shaun Franks also won plenty of possession for the Tigers to help advance the ball into the forward line but goals proved hard to come by.
Brad Stevens presented well for the Tigers while Ben Osborne worked in way into the match to show great strength late.
While Marist threatened, the Tigers were able to hold on for a closely-fought 7.11 (53) to 6.5 (41) victory. A special mention goes to under-14s Wilson Morsehead, Dylan McKenna and Noah Barrow who stepped up once again. Award winners were Brad Stevens and Jordan Miller.
