TOUGH TIGERS – GFL PREMIERS 2011

Colac Tigers remain one of the Geelong Football league’s junior forces. Not only one premiership, but they have claimed two at the weekend with the Tigers winning the Under-18 football flag with a 26 point defeat of St Josephs, and also taking home the 13-and-under netball spoils with a 21 goal triumph against Geelong West St Peters.

The GFL premiers, for the second time in three years, outclassed their opposition. Colac / Apollo Bay’s young skipper, Michael Bolitho starred for the Tigers, leading the club in a best-on-ground performance to help open up a five goal lead coming into the final term.

Coach Adam Marshall commented: “”We’re very relieved, it’s been a very long year and we have put in a lot of hard work, it’ll take a while to sink in, but we are very satisfied.” Defender Jake Cooper, won plenty of the footy.

What a credit to the great determination & dedication. Their commitment to improving, throughout the season is just terrific.

Congratulations & Well done to Jake Cooper & Michael Bolitho – the desired ending to a perfect season!

See you in Our Backyard.
