Tigers good start to the season continued with a strong performance against Latymer.  Some terrific football in the first 20 minutes saw the Tigers quickly open up a two goal lead, courtesy of Jamie and Patrick S, which was to prove decisive.  Jamie proceeded to hit the post and other chances came and went as the Tigers dominated possession.  A goal five minutes from the break though brought the home side right back into the game before Henry, making his first start of the season, set up Patrick S to restore the two goal cushion.
A more disjointed performance in the second period saw Latymer reduce the deficit again before a purple patch (or should that be maroon!) when Henry and Jamie extended the Tigers lead.  A late consolation for Latymer and the game ended 5-3!  Good performances throughout the team were noted as Oliver pipped Max, Alex and others for the man of the match award.
