‘FISH TURN TIDE, TAME TIGERS
Previously languishing near the bottom of the table – and in danger of limping toward the Wooden Spoon – the ‘Fish (3-4, 12 points) dominated a Tigers (2-5, 8 points) team that entered the twin-bill with a seemingly superior list.
In blazing late summer conditions that felled no fewer than three players at various moments, the underdogs took Game One 9.3.57 – 1.2.23, then repeated the offensive outburst with a 7.5.47 – 18.104.22.168 romp in the second match.
As the Major League Footy 2018 Premiership Season run home now becomes a sprint, Starfish FC is now positioned to rally right into the thick of things, as a repeat of Saturday’s result this week vs a 1-4 Suncoast Suns side would pull the Blue and Gold to a 5-4 mark, and definitely into the Finals mix.
MAJOR LEAGUE FOOTY WEEK 22: Suncoast Suns v. St. Petersburg Starfish FC, Saturday, September 8, 11 AM.
