This week saw the Tigers up against it, with the Seniors looking to bounce back from a surprise thumping at the hands of Dodges Ferry. To make matters worse the side already struggling with injuries and unavailable players, was weakened by the loss of Tim Langdale and Mark Young (both unavailable), as well as Shane ‘Slippers’ Bradford who dislocated his shoulder in the loss to the Sharks. The side saw the inclusion of Marcus Fitze. The Reserves saw the flow on with a few players promoted to the Seniors. They were however glad to see Tim Dennis return through them following his wrist injury, which has fortunately recovered much faster than expected. Pontville oval was looking green, but it was covered in mud which resulted in large divots appearing throughout the day.

Reserves: The Reserves started slowly trailing five goals to one at quarter time, a better second and third quarter saw them fight to be only six points down at three quarter time. However battling hard in the last the Tigers couldn’t get the job done kicking just the one behind to Brighton’s one goal, four for the quarter. A well fought out game, and another unlucky result leaves the reserves sitting just inside the top five.
Hobart                  1.2          3.2          7.3          7.4.46
Brighton               5.1          6.2          8.3          9.7.61
Goal Kickers: Matthew Collis 3, David Woodcock 2, Trey Butler, Adam Henderson.
Best Players: Danny Bennett, Luke Allie, Dean Jetson, Alex Fitzgerald, Trey Butler, David Woodcock.

Seniors: The Seniors started well with three goals to one, with Reeves, Huxley and Godfrey kicking majors. Brighton were seemingly a few goals behind all day, and never really looked in a position to overrun the Tigers. Jacob Campbell was great for Hobart coming out of the back line, and the usual perfomers Huxley and Fitze shone again. Hayden Triffett also deserves a mention with over 20 disposals and a lot of hard ball collected on the day. Great for the Tigers to bounce back with 4 points, in what is a title race for the final five.
Hobart                  3.6          4.7          8.8          13.9.87
Brighton               1.1          2.7          3.14        8.14.62
Goal Kickers: Dylan Huxley 5, Sam Godfrey 3, Sam Reeves 2, Charlie Leek 2, Bryden Goninon.
Best Players: Jacob Campbell, Marcus Fitze, Dylan Huxley, Hayden Triffett, Josh Webster, Brenton Allie.
