Round 18 Match Reports 

The Entrance Tigers V Kincumber Colts 

 

First Grade Report 

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors First Grade Tigers  didn't start as well as we would have liked and found ourselves under the pump early. We were unable to get any ascendancy on the game which had us down 10-0. Given their position going into the round Kincumber were able to play without fear and did a good job of it. It felt like we were on the back foot for long periods of time and couldn't get a break. To our credit were defended our try line well considering the pressure we were under at times with a mounting penalty count against. We will pick ourselves up and go again this week in what should be a very good semi-final clash.


Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers lost 16-22 to Kincumber. A poor start consisting of plenty of errors and some lacklustre defence saw the Colts take a 16-0 lead early in the match. The Tigers did well to claw their way back into the match but a completion rate below 50% did little to help us chase down the deficit. We look forward to the week off to freshen up and prepare for our next game. 

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers come against top of the table Kincumber. Coming in we knew it was going to be a case of who makes the least mistakes and gives away the least amount of penalties will win the game unfortunately for us it was Kincumber. Our 1 point this week went to BJ, 2 points went to Dawko who got off the nudie and 3 points and players player went to our Captain little Brendan Koeford.  

Under 19’s Report:

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil Under 19's Tigers – Bye Last Week.

 

League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers had a slow start against the Kincumber Colts. After conceding an early try and making plenty of early errors we took a slender lead into the half time break. In the second half our attack looked much better at times but the solid Kincumber defence prevented that converting into too many tries. Tigers eventually running away winners 26-14. Credit to the Kincumber Colts who came out full of enthusiasm and energy. Best for the Tigers was Solest Montgomery and Tian Stephens.

Round 17 Match Report


First Grade Report 

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors First Grade Tigers were away to Berkeley Vale in the local derby last weekend. We were able to start well and repel the oppositions early energy which gave us a chance to get some ascendancy on the game. Through an equal share of possession and the ability to defend our line we went into half time up by three tries to none (12-0). The second half went in a fairly similar fashion with the Tigers running in another three tries eventually winning the game 26-4. This was a good result for us, our opposition didn't stop coming at us and made it a very physical encounter with both sides a little battered and bruised after the game.

 

Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers faced a big reshuffle of players just prior to kick-off due to injury and illness. However, the four boys called to back up from the under 19s did a great job and didn't look at all out of place. At times our completion rate was average but we managed to do enough to score some good tries and come home with a solid win. Best for the Tigers were Luke,  Bill, Chase, Josh and Brodyn. Up the Tigers!

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers come up against a courageous Gosford team who didn’t quit. Our 1 point this week went to Luke Atherton, for a skinny bloke he runs the ball pretty hard, 2 points went to our front rower Big Jooj Christian Bennett, and 3 points and players player went to a bloke returning from injury in the trials Jackson Crane who didn’t miss a step in his return. Thanks to James Withers and Bailey Scott from the 19's who backed up!


Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil Under 19's Tigers were away at Berkeley Vale last weekend for our traditional local derby. The side started the match well and constructed some very good sets to take a 10 - 0 lead. Then possession turned and Berka started to get a lot of possession in our half and were good enough after repeat sets to post there first points. The game then became a very much an arm wrestle with the score being 10-4 at the half.  The side knew Berka would come hard in the second half and we spent the first 10 min of the 2nd half camped on our line trying to defend it. Eventually the weight of possession told and Berka locked it up at 10 -10. To our boys credit they kept a level head and were able to hit the lead midway through the half, before a field goal in the final 5 minutes sealed a much deserved 17-10 win. The best for us on the day were Chase Partridge, Bailey Scott, Matt French, Peter Lee and Thomas Steadman.

 

League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers got their 2017 campaign back on track with a win against a determined Panthers outfit. The Tigers were keen to put behind them, the disappointment of our Rd 16 loss to the Sharks however the Panthers had other ideas. To their credit, Berkeley Vale came out of the sheds keen to put in a strong performance against our girls and with a half time score of 8-0 to the Tigers were doing plenty to please their Coach. After a half time chat that had all the Tigers determined to finish the game strong, we came out and put in a much more dominant performance to eventually run out winners 32-0. With a strong second half performance that was a genuine team effort it was difficult to pick a stand out player. Stephanie Sharp and Kristen Kessler once again performed strongly and they were supported by the efforts of Brooke Hoolihan in the middle and a special mention to all our outside backs who really stepped up this week.

Round 16 Match Report

 

First Grade Report 

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors First Grade Tigers were running into a very strong wind in the first half which made it difficult for us to control the field position. This meant that we had to come out of our own end for the majority of the half and had to defend our own try line for long periods. We didn't capitalise on the oppositions errors at all making errors ourselves immediately after they did, however’ we managed to go into the half time break 16-6 down. We knew that in the second half if we could spend time down their end of the field we could come up with some points and this is what happened as we eventually took an 18-16 lead with under ten minutes remaining. We had to rally hard late as they had an opportunity to win the game but we managed to hold them out. Over all it wasn't a clinical performance but in true Tigers spirit we did enough to get the points over a very experienced Terrigal team.

 

Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers hosted Terrigal in a top of the table clash. Both sides threw a fair bit at each other in the first half with our defence holding strong especially on our own line. The boys controlled possession well to take a 14-0 lead into the break. The second half was much the same as the first with our defence holding strong and our completion rate high. In the end it was a 30-0 victory. We didn't have a bad player on the field, it was a great team effort. Best for the Tigers were Brodyn and Josh. 

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers came up against an understrength Terrigal last week, with a few injuries and a few blokes not showing up, so Terrigal started the game with 11 blokes. To their credit, they stuck in there, but with a couple more injuries the game had to be called 5 mins after halftime. Tigers Winning 42-6.


Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil Under 19's Tigers were at home last weekend against an inform Terrigal. The match started off well for us with a very well-constructed try to take a 4-0 lead. However, from that point Terrigal dominated field position and possession and took at 10-4 lead midway through the first half. A 40/20 by Terrigal turned the last 5 minutes into a period we would like to forget with Terrigal going to the break with a 20-4 lead. Then straight after the break we conceded another try to be down 26-4. From this point on the boys used the conditions to their advantage and stormed back into the game with 4 quick tries to even the scores 26-26 with about 12min to play. The team then had a couple of opportunities to win it at the death but Terrigal held strong and both teams probably deserved a point out of the contest. Best for us on the day was Zane Griffiths, Thomas Steadman and Sam McClelland.

 

League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers suffered their first loss for the season against a Terrigal side that turned up ready to play. After conceding an early try and finding it difficult to maintain possession the Tigers went into half time trailing 10-0. The second half looked to play out the same way after the Sharks scored an early try once again to lead 16-0. The Tigers finally kicked into gear with two quick tries to bring the score to 16-10 and create what looked to be a close finish. To the sharks credit they responded and were able to put on two late tries to eventually win the match 28-10. The Sharks were the better team on the day and deserved the win. Kristen Kessler and Tia Poll were the Tigers best and saw them feature in the points. We are looking forward to trying to get our campaign back on track against the Panthers this weekend.

Round 15 Match Report

The Entrance Tigers V Toukley Hawks at Edsacc Oval 

 

First Grade Report 

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors First Grade Tigers focus against Toukley was to start well and that is exactly what we did scoring a try inside the first five minutes. Unfortunately we were unable to keep the pressure and fell into playing some pretty poor footy. To our oppositions credit they continued to compete and were rewarded with a 20 - 4 score line deep into the game. Once again though we were able to come back and steal the win 22 -20. Not a great performance over all but the two points were important and we got them.

 

Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers side won 42-4 against Toukley. In a game that was frustrating to watch the boys managed to control possession enough to post a solid victory. Hopefully in the coming weeks we can continue to improve. Well done to Matt French who was Players Player and Player of the Match in his grade debut. Best for the Tigers were Frenchy, Zane, Bill, Jake and Carl. Welcome to all the Old Boys today, Up the Tigers!

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers put in a good team effort a fortnight ago against Toukley. The boys defended well and pushed around the ball to go into halftime 22-0. Much of the same in the 2nd half the final score 42-4. Thanks to all the 19's boys who every week are keen to back up. Our 1 point this week went to the little guy Brendon Koeford, good game little fella, 2 points went to our centre Nicko who scored a couple of good tries and 3 points and players player went to our half who kicked well controlled the game and bagged a double himself. Under 19’s Report


Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil Under 19's were at home last match against Toukley. The match started off very strongly for us  in both attack and defence and this was reflected on the scoreboard with the team racing out to a good lead. The theme of the game was to win the grind and do the 1% well. The team did this and lead 32-0 at half time. The second half was all about going on with the job and the side did this by playing smart football and sticking to the task to come away 74-0 winners. This week will present a tough test on Old Boys Day against an inform Terrigal, which should be an entertaining affair. Best for us against Toukley were Chase Partridge and Andrew Petersen.

 

League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers put in a dominant performance against Toukley in the Women in League Round Winning 66-0. At times, the Hawks put our defence under pressure with some good foot work and a strong kicking game, resulting in a few close scoring opportunities. To the credit of the Tigers defence, we stuck together and kept the score to nil. A strong attacking performance saw the Tigers cross for 12 tries for the second week in a row meaning that once again it was difficult to select a stand-out player. Brooke Peachey and Bree Dawson both supported well, turning half chances into tries. Sian George was again strong in both defence and attack, but it was the effort of our fullback Kristen Kessler, who continues to position herself at the right place at the right time in both defence and attack that saw her take out the 3 points this week. It will be a big test for the Tigers in Round 16 as we take on the Terrigal Sharks in a top of the table clash. With loads of talent in both teams, it promises to be a high quality game of League Tag.

Round 14 Match Report 

 

First Grade Report 

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractor First Grade Tigers unfortunately didn't commit to the game with the right intensity and mindset which was required and therefore got beat. We made far too many errors which gave the opposition energy and they were able to make the most of their opportunities. When we did play to our structures and execute we came away with points and created further opportunities. The important part for us is to respond to this poor performance this weekend.

 

Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers won 54-0 against Ourimbah. The boys were focused and committed to stick to the game plan and did well to do this. The somewhat frustrating stop start nature of the match stopped us from getting any real flow in the match. It was hard to single out players as standouts with everyone contributing to the win. Today we welcome all the Women in League to EDSACC and we recognise their contribution to the game of Rugby League.

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers were sitting 5th and Ourimbah were sitting 6th going into last week’s game, so we knew we were in for a tough game. We started off well scoring first but the Maggie's fought back to go in to halftime up 12-4. We started well in the 2nd half scoring 3 early tries but to Ourimbah’s credit we never quite and got back within 6 and made us fight all the way to the final play of the game final score 24-18. Two 1 pointers went to our hooker Blacky and one of the 5 Under 19's to back up Bailey Scott, 2 points went to another 19's Alex Kelleher who’s defence against much bigger men was outstanding and 3 points and players player went to yet another 19's Kallum Goolagong who bagged a double, one of them running the length of the field. Huge thanks to Alex, Kal, Bailey, Reece and Lachie who were all out of the 19's and were all solid.


Under 19’s Report

No Report: Bye

 

 

League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers continued their winning form against Ourimbah. Early in the match, the Tigers threw plenty at the Ourimbah defence and some great tags from the Magpies made early points difficult to come by. The ladies stuck to the plan and points soon followed. Thanks to an early 3 try haul to Solest Montgomery we took a 22-0 lead into half time. The second half was a much more dominant performance scoring 7 tries which included hatricks to Steph Sharp and Jocelyn Kelleher resulting in a final score of 58-4. In a game that saw the Tigers score 12 tries, it was big metres up the middle and constant talk from Brooke Hoolihan that many of our tries were scored off and saw Brooke named Players Player and take out the 3 points.

Round 13 Match Report

 

First Grade Report 

First Grade Report:

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors First Grade Tigers after some good weeks of footy, knew the game against Woy Woy was going to be tough. They have had good form over the last month and came at us early. We were able to match it with them and eventually got over the top of them. We played some good footy in the first half and built pressure with our defence. This resulted in the Tigers having a 24-0 lead going into the break. The second started the same way however we started to chase some plays rather than sticking  to the plan. All in all it was a good performance and we ran out 38-0 winners.



Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers put in a good performance at home against Woy Woy resulting in a 34-4 victory. In a physical battle, the Tigers were able to control the ruck and control possession well. This resulted in some entertaining footy and some good tries were scored. Best for the Tigers were Mitch, Danyiel and David. We look forward to our next match versus Ourimbah.


Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers come up against the ladder leaders St Eddie's last week. Coming into the game we knew it was going to be a tough battle all over the park. A couple of mistakes early cost us and Eddies being the very best team in the comp capitalized on them to jump out to a 14 point lead. To the boys credit they never gave up and fought back but just fell short going down 24-18. Huge effort from all the boys working hard for each other and giving Eddies NOTHING in the middle! 1 point this week went to Blacky who’s defence in the middle against their big boppers was outstanding, 2 points went to Ryan Jelley who bagged a double and was great getting us out of our end of the field, 3 points went to our front rower Nick Andrews who worked himself to a stand still with and without the ball.
A massive thankyou to Chris Ball, Kallum Goolagong and Bailey Scott who backed up from the 19s, cheers boys.


Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil U19 Tigers were at home last Sunday against Woy Woy. The match started off much more positively for us this week with the boys working really hard for each other in defence. Woy Woy came up with 1st points through neatly placed kick. However the players responded and posted the next 3 tries before halftime to lead 14-6. The second half was an arm wrestle with Woy Woy playing some hardnosed footy. This saw them hit back about 17 minutes into the second half to narrow the scores to 14-12. Then through some smart footy we were able to post the next 2 tries and come away with a hard earned 24-14 win over a very gallant Woy Woy. It was a solid team effort from all the boys.


League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers continued their winning form against a Woy Woy side that had come off a close win over Kincumber in Round 12. The Tigers were dominate from the outset, taking the ball 70m down field to force a Woy Woy drop out off the kick off. The ensuing set resulted in a try to Jocelyn Kelleher and an early 6-0 lead. For most of the opening half the Tigers dominated and aside from some cheap turnovers took a 30-0 lead into the break. The second half played out much the same way with some solid attacking play that saw the Tigers run away 62-0 winners. Once again, the ladies were strong across the park, but special mention to Bree Dawson on a 4 try haul and both Stephanie Sharp and Jasmin Strange each bagging a double. Stephanie Sharp controlled the match well, which saw her take the 3 points and players player.

Match Report Round 11

The Entrance Tigers VS Northern Lakes at Edsacc Oval

 

First Grade Report 

No Report.


Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers side dominated the first half against Northern Lakes. Some good tries were scored and we went to the break leading comfortably. The second half was a bit tighter with the Warriors managing to score a couple of late tries, however’ the result was never in doubt. Best for the Tigers were Haydn and Josh. Final score 46-12.

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers come up against a tough Northlakes. We started the game playing some decent footy and jumped out to a 6 nil lead early, but a couple of mistakes and penalties in our half gave the Warriors a sniff going into halftime 12 all. We knew if we completed our sets we could run away with it and that we did for 20 minutes of the 2nd half getting out to 36-12. To the credit of Northlakes they never quit until the final whistle getting a late try. Two 1 pointers went to Luke Atherton and Nick Andrews, 2 pointer went to Connor Atkins and unfortunately 3 points went to James Nixon who will not stop telling people about it!

 

Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil U19 Tigers were at home last Sunday against Northern Lakes. The match started off very sloppy for the first 20 min. From that point the side got down to business and executed much better to post a 62-6 win. Best for us on the day were Matt Hedges, Kallum Goolagong and Matt French.

 

League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers had a great win over a determined Northern Lakes Warriors. From the opening whistle the Tigers went on the attack applying immediate pressure and converting an early try. The Warriors, responded with some solid defence that made further early points harder to come by. Through some great team tries combined with some individual brilliance saw the Tigers secure a 40-6 victory. Whilst all the girls performed strongly, Stephanie Sharp continued her good form, controlling the match well, scoring a great try and having a hand in others. Tian Stephens also had some strong runs and scored a great try which saw her named Players Player. We are looking forward to this week’s match against an in form Wyong Roo’s.

Round 10 Match Reports

The Entrance Tigers VS Erina Eagles at Erina Oval Sunday 18th June

 

First Grade Report 

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors First Grade Tigers had their most complete performance so far this season and we were able to take a good win away from Erina oval. We started the game well getting into the grind early and continued to build pressure. We were very good in all areas of the game and as a result we were able to rack up a big score line. Given the wet conditions, I fully expected the game to be a scrappy, a dog fight with teams being put under pressure from their errors. This was surprisingly not this case as both teams ripped into each other and played some exciting rugby league. The challenge is now to back up the performance this week.


Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers shared the competition points with Erina after a physical encounter ended 6-6. Considering the conditions both sides handled possession quite well in patches but neither side could gain the upper hand for too long. Best for the Tigers were Joe, Tom and Griffo. We look forward to hosting Northern Lakes today.

 

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers had a tough game in terrible conditions out at Erina. A couple of early mistakes with and without the ball in the first 20 proved to be costly with Erina scoring twice for the only points of the game. From then on it was back and forward with both teams having their chances in attack, unfortunately we could not crack them to go down 12-0. We had two 1 pointers this week both our starting front rowers BJ and Parksy, 2 points went to Connor Atkins who had his best game of the year so far and 3 points and players player went to the ever consistent Greenie.


Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil U19 Tigers were at away last Sunday at Erina. The match started as a very torrid affair and both sides were scoreless after 15 min. However, a lack of discipline and errors cost us field position and Erina were good enough to capitalize. Unfortunately, we decided to play smart disciplined footy with 20min to go but it wasn't good enough to come back from a big deficit and we ended up going down 26-20. Full credit to the opposition who turned up to play from the first whistle. Best for us on the day were Thomas Steadman and Chase Partridge.

 

 

League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers over the past two seasons have had some very close contests with the Eagles. We knew going into this game that it would again be a tough match and the result could go either way. A couple of early errors had us under immediate pressure, however the defensive effort of the girls was outstanding and we managed to take a 4-0 lead into half time. After conceding an early try after the break, our girls lifted the intensity and scored two second half tries of our own to take a 14-4 win and keep our season heading in the right direction. Whilst we were strong across the park it must be noted that Jocelyn Kelleher was outstanding taking out the 3 points and players player. Kristen Kessler, Steph Sharp, Sian George & Brooke Hoolihan also controlled the match well.

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers came up against a strong Kincumber team who were sitting on equal points to us. Kincumber were strong in defence and capitalized on our slow start to run out winners 26-10.

Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil U19 Tigers. No report due to having the bye in Round Nine.


League Tag Report

Congratulations to the Ladies with a hard fought 16-0 win over Kincumber. We had expected a tough encounter as Kincumber had a strong start to the season and with a solid mix of experience and youth in their team we had to be on our game to get away with the win. Our defence was outstanding as Kincumber threw a lot at us and to keep them to zero was a big effort. In attack we showed glimpses of our best with some very solid runs and  great tries. Maddi Symington took out the 3 points and big games from Brooke Peachey, Kristen Kessler, Jasmin Strange and  Jocelyn Kelleher saw them also feature in the votes.

Round 8 Match Report

Sunday 28th May - The Entrance Tigers VS Berkeley Vale Panthers - (Open Age Tigers VS Gosford-Kariong)

Edssac Oval 


First Grade Report 

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors First Grade Tigers Poor starts seem to be a theme for our season at the moment. We didn't aim up at all defensively in the first 15 to 20 mins and as a result found ourselves 16-0 down. Eventually we started to repel them set after set and on our first venture down their end we came away with points. After having another try disallowed and the opposition immediately getting a relieving penalty we found ourselves down another try. The half time score was 23-4 and we were down but during the break there was an air of confidence, knowing that if we controlled the field positon and got our share of the ball we could come over the top of them. That's exactly what happened. We played to our structures in attack and defended a lot better which allowed us to build some pressure. We started to pile on the points and with 20 mins to go the game was nicely poised at 23-22 and it was there for the taking. In the end we were good enough to get the win all be it by one point. It was a very exciting and intense game of footy played between two sides that love to mix it up with each other.

 

Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers defeated Berkeley Vale 28-14. A scrappy but solid win. Given the many changes made late in the preparation, the boys did well to grind out the win. We look forward to hosting Kincumber today.

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers took on Gosford-Kariong this week, and the old saying 'play how you trained' really proved itself as we showed up very flat and paid for it early with Kariong scoring and taking a 6-4 lead. The Tigers bounced back to go into half time 12-6. The 2nd half was much of the same before we run away eventual winners 30-18. Massive congrats to Gosford-Kariong, who in previous years would have rolled over and let us put a score on them, but to their credit, they pushed us till the final whistle. Two 1 pointers went to Clarky and Dawko who were both excellent up front, 2 points went to Joey who had his 1st hit out back from injury and 3 points went to our lock Griffo who was solid with and without the ball and played big minutes.  

 

Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil U19 Tigers were at home to Berkeley Vale last Sunday. Unfortunately for us, it was a game we would rather forget as we never really got going in the contest and as a result we put in a poor display going down 18-10. The side will regroup after the bye and focus on having a strong second half of the season.


League Tag Report

Great Win against Berkeley Vale last weekend and Good Luck to The Entrance League Tag Tigers today. Congratulations to all of The Entrance players (and the whole squad) who represented the Central Coast v Illawarra South Coast in the Country Championship Finals at St Johns Oval, Charlestown yesterday. We hope you are celebrating a Win and are injury free to back up for your Clubs today. Well Done

Round 7 Match Reports 

The Entrance Tigers VS Terrigal Sharks - All Grades


First Grade Report 

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors First Grade Tigers once again gave the opposition a 12 point head start and with the closeness of the competition it’s something we need to fix. After about 20 mins we started to find our groove and got into the game, building some pressure and controlling the field position. This led to us scoring a nice try and going into the break 12-6 down. In the second half I felt like we gained the upper hand for long periods but only managed to get over the try line once and missed the conversion from out wide. All in all it was a good battle with both sides taking it to each other physically. The fellas fought hard and showed bags of courage and commitment but unfortunately there could only be one winner.

 

Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers faced off with Terrigal in a top of the table clash. The game could not have started off any worse for us with a match ending knee injury to our captain in the first set of six and then a couple of minutes later another match ending injury to our dummy half. This forced a bit of a reshuffle and required our big men in the middle to play bigger minutes than planned. Terrigal had all the ball and all the momentum due to some poor ball handling on our behalf. Trailing 4-0 at the break and looking very tired the boys committed to improving on the 5 completed sets we achieved in the first half and vowed to get back into the game. Losing another player to injury very early in the second half again tested our fitness. Both sides went toe to toe for the duration of the match with a Josh Kessler field goal being the difference in the end. A very scrappy but tough fought 11-10 victory. Our depth will be tested in the next few weeks due to representative commitments and a few injuries. We look forward to our next game vs Berkeley Vale.

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers game against Terrigal, a team who were always going to be tough on old boys day. It was a scrappy game with both teams making their fair share of mistakes. We got out to a good lead but to Terrigal’s credit they never gave up and came storming home getting within 4 points before the Tigers scored a couple of late tries to finish the game 38-24. We had two one pointers James Nixon and Jackson Tillett, 2 points went to Brodie Green and 3 points our fullback Jarrad Sharp.

 

Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil U19 Tigers were away last Sunday to Terrigal. We knew we would be significantly down on troops with just 14 players but were determined to put up a strong fight. The boys got off to a good start and executed well with the footy and held an early 4-0 lead. We then lost a player after 10min and were down to 13. The boys worked hard and defended their backsides off but some repeat sets and fatigue allowed Terrigal to have a 6-4 lead at the break. The 2nd half started well for us and we got out to a 10-6 lead and looked to be going well until a penalty against us in possession swung the momentum of the game. Terrigal to their credit capitalised and levelled up the scores. From this point we started to lose more players through injury and this allowed Terrigal to capitalise and score 2 late tries when we were down to 11 men. It was a gutsy effort by the boys and they can hold their head high as they finished the game with only 10 players and went down in a very tight game.


League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers came up against Terrigal who also hadn't had a loss for the year and the game was going to be tough right from the kick off. Terrigal scored first but the girls found some momentum to get field possession and capitalised on an error to put the scores back to 6 all. Just before half time Sian George took advantage of the penalty which took the ladies into the second half up 8-6. After a great defensive effort in the second half, especially in the later minutes, the girls held Terrigal scoreless and came away with the 8-6 win. It was a great team effort and every player contributed to the win. The girls voted Ellah Smeeth and Jocelyn Kelleher players player.

 Round 6 Match Reports 

The Entrance Tigers Vs Toukley Hawks (All Grades) at Darren Kennedy Oval 

 

First Grade Report 

This was a game of two halves with the first being fairly scrappy. We didn't play to our structure and weren't able to execute our plays and this was evident on the scoreboard being 6 nil at half time. The second half however was much better from us as we started to get to our points and make the most of the opportunities we had. We were able to put Toukley away in the end running in 28 points in the last thirty minutes of the game.

 

Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers played a physical match vs Toukley. The first half was a real arm wrestle. A poor completion rate gave us plenty of chances to work on our tackling. After leading for much of the first half, Toukley were able to cross just before the break to lock it up 6 all at halftime. In the second half we were finally rewarded for our dominance in the ruck and we were able to lay on a few more tries and run out 22-6 winners. We know we will need to improve on that performance going forward. Best for the Tigers were Webby, Haydn, Carl and Bill.

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers travelled to Toukley to play a Toukley Hawks team sitting on the same points as us. For the first 20 minutes or so it was a tough physical game mainly played through the forwards for both teams before our front rower big Jooj Christain Bennett got off the nudie and broke the deadlock. From then on our fitness really took over going into halftime up 18-0. The 2nd half began back in the grind before running away eventual winners 46-0. This week we had two 1 pointers that was our hooker Blacky and a bloke who made his debut for the Club against his old Club Jacob Griffin, 2 points went to our lock Greenie and 3 points and players player by a mile went to the ever consistent Christian 'jooj' Bennett.

 

Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil U19's? were away last Sunday at Toukley. The boys got off to a good start and executed well with the footy and got out to a 22-0 lead before Toukley hit back with a try of a ricochet kick. To the teams credit this was the only points they would concede for the game and went into the sheds with a 28-6 lead. The 2nd half started well and the boys went on with the job to win 52-6. The standouts for us were Matt French, Kallum Goolagong, Jake Slee and Thomas Steadman.?

 

League Tag Report

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers side came up against a very energetic Toukley side which played hard all game but the ladies stuck to their structure and came away with a 64-0 win. The girls were strong defensively once again and their attack in the wet weather was excellent with minimal drop ball and some quality team tries. All the girls played extremely well and played well as a team. Players player was Sian George.

Round 5 match reports

 

First Grade Report (Round 5)

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors Tigers made a much better start to the game which allowed us to get into the contest early. We played some good football and executed our game plan well and that translated into points. Late in the first it felt like we were right on top, but with a disallowed try and another couple of squandered opportunities we were able to put Ourimbah away. The most rewarding part of the game came early in the second half when Ourimbah had 9 sets of six in a row attacking our line. In true Tigers spirit we were able to turn them away time after time. This was the most impressive section of the game for us as we showed plenty of resolve. We continued to create opportunities in attack but didn't get the rub of the green on a couple. We conceded a late try from a kick which made a rally out of the last minute.

 

Reserve Grade Report (Round 5)

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers scored a 46-0 victory over Ourimbah. Our first half was impressive with our forwards making good metres in the middle and setting the platform for our outside men to score some good tries. The message from the sheds at halftime was to make sure our defensive efforts continued (keeping our opposition to zero) and that we continued to follow the game plan with the ball. We managed to hold up the defensive side of the equation and even set ourselves a more challenging task by handing over possession cheaply and consistently throughout the second half. In the end the boys all tried hard and the win was never in doubt. We move forward to our next opponent, Toukley. Best for the Tigers were Pep, Ethan, Josh, Luke and Webby.

League Tag Report (Round 1 Catch Up Game)

The Entrance Leagues Club League Tag Tigers came up against an impressive Erina team, but after having minimal possession early on the girls bounced back and scored first points. From there the girls started to build momentum and pushed the lead out to 10-0. A late try by Erina made the finish to the game interesting but the girls held on with some strong defence to get a 10-4 win. All the girls turned up to play and all had an excellent game but a special mention to one of the young girls, Ellah Smeeth who played out of her skin and showed plenty of maturity for her age.

Round Four - Match Report

 

The Entrance Tigers Vs Woy Woy at Woy Woy Oval - Sunday 23rd April 

 

First Grade Report

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors Tigers got off to another poor start to the game, conceding early tries, however’ we got into some sort of grind midway through the first half. This allowed us to gain some momentum, build pressure and score some points. Going into the break with the scores locked at 10 all there was a feeling of confidence due to the fact that when we completed sets we were able to put points on. The second half felt as though we were the dominant side for long periods but couldn't manage to put a gallant Woy Woy away. Eventually a penalty goal would be the difference in what was a gritty game of footy.


Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers once again were forced to deal with a number of changes late in the week. To the team's credit the changes weren't disruptive and the boys called in from the 19s and Open Grade did themselves and the Club proud. We started the game off very well jumping out to a 24-0 lead before the Roosters hit back just before halftime. Woy Woy came hard at us in the second half and our ball control slipped. However, the boys stuck solid and battled on for a 32-10 victory. Best for the Tigers were Sam, Curtis, Carl, Ethan and Danyiel. We look forward to being back at home for our clash with Ourimbah today.

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers travelled to Woy Woy to face top of the table St Eddies. It was a back and forth game with the lead changing a couple of times throughout, hats off to Eddies who were too good on the day and beat us 22-10. One point went to Jackson Tillett who had to play 3 different positions and didn't let us down in any of them, another 1 point went to big jooj Christian Bennett who took the ball up hard all game and was strong in defence. 2 points went to Zack Westwood who had to play out of position for the majority of the game in the centres and didn’t look out of place in defence or attack. 3 point's and players player went to Brodie Green who played the majority of the game in the middle and worked tirelessly in defence.

 

Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil travelled south to play Woy Woy. The team knew they would be in for a very physical contest and it didn't disappoint. A few errors early allowed Woy Woy to post first points and this would test the boys resolve early in the contest. To their credit they fought back hard and we started to dominate field position and possession and took a handy 22-4 lead to the break. Once again Woy Woy opened the 2nd half  strong and our defence held solid and we were able to once again build pressure and put on points to come away with a well-earned 36-4 win. Well done boys, there were a lot of very good performances, but special mention goes to Kallum Goolagong who was players player.

Round 3 - Match Report 

 

The Entrance Tigers Vs Wyong Roos - All Grades - Friday 14th April at Edsacc Oval 


First Grade Report

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors Tigers got off to a very poor start to the game, conceding early tries and we got into some sort of grind late in the first half. However, we struggled to contain the Wyong attack for long periods and their willingness to compete on every play took its toll. Late in the game we finally got into our shape and executed our plays leading to us scoring a couple of tries. All in all we created plenty of opportunities in attack, given a lack of possession, but we couldn't stop the flow of points from Wyong who were clinical in the way they did things.

 

Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers went into the clash with Wyong with some new combinations and a bit of a reshuffle across the park. The disruption didn't cause the players too much trouble and they were able to get into the grind and tough out a 22-14 win against the Roos. Best for the Tigers were Mitch and Haydn. Also, well done to Sam, Zane and Seni from the 19s. We look forward to our next match vs Woy Woy.

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers were at home against an always tough Wyong team who were sitting 1 spot above us on the table. It was a back and forth game with the lead changing a couple of times throughout the game, in the end we ran out winners 32-20. This week we had three 1 pointers that was Urban, James Nixon and Westy. 2 points went to probably our most consistent player’ that’s Jarrod Black. 3 points went to a bloke who’s played his 2nd game in 7 years and killed it in the front row, that’s Nathan Tocchet.

 

Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil U19's? were at home last Sunday against our Northern Rivals Wyong. The opening to the game was a disaster for us, with the bounce of the footy and mental mistakes costing us with Wyong racing out to a 24 -0 lead after only 15 minutes. The boys fought hard and narrowed the gap a little before the half to 24 - 4. The 2nd half started well but we lacked execution at key times and just as we would get ourselves back in the contest we would shoot ourselves in the foot. Credit to Wyong they came to play and deserved the win 34 -16. The effort was certainly there and we will be looking to an improved performance this week against Woy Woy.  The standouts for us were Thomas Steadman, Matt French and Kallum Goolagong.?

Match Report Round 2

 

 The Entrance Tigers RL Vs Northern Lakes Warriors Sunday 9th April


First Grade Report

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors Tigers failed to execute their game plan in the first half with poor finishes to sets and some errors as well, which resulted in us going into the break 10 – nil down. We managed to turn things around in the second half playing much better footy. Eventually we got ourselves into the lead but unfortunately Northern Lakes scored a try next to the posts with only seconds on the clock to steal the victory.

 

Reserve Grade Report

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Tigers had a disappointing start to the season and were focussed on playing a more complete game in Round 2. Improved ball control and more energy allowed the boys to dominate the majority of the match. Leading 24-0 at halftime, all the talk was about being disciplined and relentless in the second half. Although the ball control dropped off a bit, the boys were able to continue to score tries and ran out 50-6 winners. Best for the Tigers were Ethan, Liam, Sione, Haydn and Jake. We look forward to our Good Friday clash with Wyong. 

 

Open Age Report

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Tigers travelled out to Doyalson to the new home ground of the Warriors. It was a very scrappy game filled with plenty of mistakes, but in the end we defended well in the middle and had to dig deep against a tough Northlakes team who even when down to 12 men would not quit. Massive thankyou to Reece Timewell and Lachie Mohan who both backed up from the 19s.
1 point this week goes too our hooker Blacky who scored a good try and defended well all game, 2 points and players player goes to Urban Iyo who scored a great intercept try at the end of the game to seal the victory and 3 points goes to our smallest but angriest forward who’s talk on the field was sorely missed last week and defence in the middle was massive this week Brendon Koeford.


Under 19’s Report

The Entrance Coca-Cola Amatil U19's? travelled away to Northern Lakes new home ground at Doyalson last Sunday.  The side was buoyed by the presence of some of our rep players coming back and were looking to back up a strong showing in Week 1. The opening to the game was almost perfect with the boys racing out to a 24-0 lead after 15 min. Unfortunately one simple mistake cost us a try and gave North Lakes a little momentum. However, the boys put this behind them and got back to the task at hand and lead 34- 6 at the half.  The second half started strongly with the players focused on backing up their efforts in the 1st half and playing solid defence. They did this very well and dominated the second half and ran out winners 68 - 6. There were lots of great performances but the standouts were Thomas Steadman, Zane Griffiths and Blake Fenton.?

Match Reports for Round One 

The Entrance Tigers VS Erina Eagles- Sunday 2nd April 


First Grade

The Central Coast Cleaning Contractors First Grade came into Round 1 after an intense couple of months of pre-season training and trials and everyone was now playing for keeps. Unfortunately for us, we were unable to get any sort of ascendancy in the game and were out enthused by a very energetic Erina side. This week we will get the opportunity to right the wrongs of last week and kick start our season. The players know where they need to be better and are working hard to make sure they play their best footy this weekend. Go Tigers


Reserve Grade

The GTL Rapid Clean Reserve Grade Team were presented tough opposition in Erina in round 1. We started off the match quite well and probably should have lead by more than 6 at the break, but unforced errors cost us a couple of tries. We started off the second half reasonably well but we were quick to throw the game plan out the window. Leading by 12 with a quarter of the match remaining we began to play like we were behind by 12, we panicked, took shortcuts and Erina were good enough to capitalise on our poor play. Final score Eagles 17 Tigers 16. Best for the Tigers were Curtis, Sione, Mitch and Jordan. Go Tigers


Open Age

The Pallister Promotions Open Age Team for Round 1 came up against a fast starting Erina side who jumped out to a 14-0 lead early and we went into halftime 18-0. The 2nd half was much the same, with the final score line of 22-8. Congratulations to Erina who were the better team on the day. Special thanks to Reece Timewell who backed up from the 19's and played plenty of minutes and bagged a try as well. We had two 1 points go to Ryan Jelley and the flying Hawaiian Urban Iyo who both had great carries getting us out of trouble, 2 points and players player went to our hooker Blacky who looked dangerous all day, 3 points went too our front rower big Jooj, Christian Bennett who had good go forward all day and defended hard all of the game also. Go Tigers


Under 19's

The Coca-Cola Amatil U19's? started their 2017 season at home against Erina last Sunday. Just like most sides the boys were a little underdone in their preparation due to the weather. The opening to the game was a real arm wrestle and we managed to gain some momentum and field position through a high completion rate. This allowed us to post first points and lead 4-0. To Erina's credit they didn't go away and levelled the scores at 4-4 just before the break. The second half started strongly with the players utilizing the strong wind at their back and we managed to put on the first 2 tries of the second half. However, the opposition kept fighting to the end and scored a try to close the gap to 16- 8, and this is how it stayed. The best on the day for us were Lewis Sheens, Zane Griffith, Jacob Bell and Joel Bradbury.? Go Tigers
