Ca­ble Beach reel in Tigers

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Jakeb Wad­dell

Ca­ble Beach man­aged to fend off a brave Derby Tigers for a 10-point win last Satur­day, de­spite a goal­less fi­nal quar­ter.

The Tigers came out strong in the sec­ond game of the Belt Up round, wear­ing their spe­cial guernseys for the round.

They pounced to a three-goal lead at quar­ter-time but Ca­ble Beach quickly found their feet and went into the ma­jor break up by one point. In a com­pet­i­tive third quar­ter, Ca­ble Beach kicked five goals to the Tigers’ three, mean­ing they went into the fi­nal quar­ter ahead by 15 points.

Both teams knew the fourth quar­ter would be a bat­tle of work ethic, quite of­ten a dif­fi­cult chal­lenge dur­ing the early rounds of the sea­son.

De­spite not kicking a goal in the fi­nal quar­ter, Ca­ble Beach’s pres­sure through­out the back line and mid­field meant they held on for a 10point vic­tory.

Ca­ble Beach head coach Brett Claudius said he was very happy with the team’s start to the sea­son, but be­lieved they tired to­wards the end of the game.

“Derby came out well but I think we were a lot stronger by the sec­ond quar­ter and our for­wards pre­sented hard,” he said.

“We had to work re­ally hard to get the win and I’m very happy with the way we have started this year’s sea­son.

“We tired a bit to­wards the end but that hap­pens at this early stage of the year.”

Jor­dan King and Daniel and Alphonse Cox were among Ca­ble’s best, with Clin­ton Bang­morra, Jamahl Bed­ford and Calum Kitch­ing Derby’s stand-outs.

In other games, Saints were thumped by Towns, 114-23, with Broome Bulls edg­ing Looma Ea­gles by two points.
