Tigers claw their way to semis
THERE'S still a sign of a pulse at Polwart Dr as Coffs Coast Tigers managed to keep its hopes of playing finals football alive on Sunday.
The Tigers simply had to defeat Boambee at Ayrshire Park and it did so. It wasn't pretty but the job was done and the Tigers managed to inflict a first loss for the season on Boambee at Ayrshire Park.
Curt Dixon scored for the Tigers to seal the 1-0 victory.
The result leaves the Tigers seven points adrift of fourth placed Boambee with four matches remaining. One factor in the Tigers' favour is the extra match they have in hand. The Tigers will play Coffs United next week in a catch-up game.
Coffs United continued on its merry way despite again being undermanned.
The reigning premiers had little trouble collecting the three points at Woolgoolga.
The Lions won 3-0 with Sam Mackay, Aaron Alsopp and Ben Mackay scoring.
A Grant Martin toe poke four minutes from time stopped Urunga claiming victory at Toormina Oval.
The Raiders' Jaxen Heward converted from the penalty spot to score the only first half goal.
On the hour Luke France made the most of playing a lone hand in front of goal to equalise for Sawtell.
Ben Dooley restored the lead for the Raiders only minutes from full time and Urunga looked the likely winners until the late equaliser from Sawtell.
The late goal means Urunga is now only two points ahead of Orara Valley who endured a classic match of two halves against West-
Within 30 minutes the Dingoes had three goals on the board and was headed for a big win.
A goal just before the break gave Westlawn hope and the Tigers managed to reduce the margin back to a single goal not long after the resumption.
Orara steadied to eke out a 4-3 win but the defence will need to tighten up in the run towards the semi finals.
