Tigers return to form with 2-1 win over Orara Valley

WESTLAWN Tigers marked their final home game of the North Coast Football Premier League season in perfect fashion.

The Tigers hosted Orara Valley Dingoes at Barnier Park on Saturday night and overcame the visitors 2-1 to secure maximum competition points.

It was a brilliant return to form for the Tigers, who were thumped 7-0 by a ruthless Boambee Bombers outfit last week.

Regular contributor Matthew O'Donohue ended up on the scoresheet in the early moments of the game and said he was glad to get the win.

"We played really well and dominated the ball," he said.

"As is usually case against us, Orara scored a scrappy goal from the only chance they really had."

They went to the break at 1-1 before late substitute Billy Hayes scored in the final five minutes to seal victory.

Westlawn will finish its season on the road to Northern Storm next Sunday. All NCF Premier League fixtures will kick off at 2pm.

 MACLEAN Bobcats had a horror afternoon at McLean St on Saturday, thrashed 7-0 by Coffs Lions.

The Lions are the defending premiers and are on top of the NCF Premier League table.

With only one game until the finals start, the Lions in fine touch and will be favourites to retain the premiership.

The Bobcats will finish their season at home against third-placed Sawtell Scorpions and will have to be at their best to avoid a loss.
