WAGGA Tigers kept their finals hopes alive with a 47-point win over Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong on Saturday.

It was Tigers’ second win in the past two months and it keeps them in the hunt for finals, winning 10.11 (71) to 3.6 (24) at Robertson Oval.

Tigers captain-coach Shaun Campbell was glad to be back winning games of footy.

“To get back on the winner’s list is good. Everyone was up and about and enjoyed it,” Campbell said.

Tigers were a little sluggish early on but always had the game in their keeping. 

Jim Carroll and Ben Kelly were Tigers’ best, while Brendan Myers booted four goals and had a hand in a couple of others. Lachie Myers and Campbell Lovell also enjoyed good games.

Ben Walsh and Jacob Olsson were best for GGGM, who lost Mitch Carroll to injury late in the game.

Campbell thought Tigers got better as the game went on.

“We were crap early, really ordinary,” he said.

“We were sloppy, not clean and our energy levels were down, which was strange because we have everything to play for.

“We came out after half-time and rectified it though, which was good.”

Tigers face another must-win clash against Turvey Park next week, before finishing with Collingullie.
