Tigers roar in 6-0 demolition of Woolgoolga Wolves
ROB Usher's description of Westlawn Tiger's 6-0 demolition of Woolgoolga Wolves could not have been more accurate.
"It was a clinical performance," the coach said.
"I'm really proud of the team but now we need to get back into training and work hard before next weekend."
The Tigers were irresistible on Saturday as they declared their play-off credentials with a dominant win.
A tweak in formation seemed to work wonders for Westlawn, who moved versatile captain Aiden Cavanagh-Nesa further forward to provide support to lone striker James Joyce.Westlawn were fluid and aggressive from the first whistle, and created chances throughout the match.
Joyce calmly slid home the first goal, benefiting from a through ball over the top of Woolgoolga's defence.
Cavanagh-Nesa scored the second soon after, skilfully dribbling his way into the box and past two Wolves defenders before sweeping the ball in at the near post.
Tenacious winger Jack Hill made the scoreline comfortable with a perfectly timed run and leap, powering the ball in with his head from close range.
Westlawn had more chances before half-time as Cavanagh-Nesa and Joyce took advantage of the uncertain Woolgoolga defence.
The Tigers were just as ruthless after the break.
Hill scored his second with a wonderful finish in the box, and Joyce completed his own brace when his deflected effort looped into the net.
Usher was delighted with the performance, but warned his players not to get carried away with the result.
"We were fantastic going forward today but we need to be realistic," he said.
"Woolgoolga are certainly not going to be the hardest team we face this season, and our next game against Urunga will be a far, far tougher test."
The Tigers reserves won their match 3-1, with goals from Billy Hayes, Connor Keogh, and Brett Worley ensuring a winning start.
