Inconsistent Werribee Tigers go down to Collingwood

It was the good, the bad and the ugly of the Werribee Tigers in the Victorian Football League at the weekend.

The Tigers produced contrasting levels of play in their 42-point loss to Collingwood at Victoria Park on Sunday.

They looked to have all the momentum after a scintillating seven goals to two second quarter took them to a 20-point lead at half-time.

At that point they had no inkling of what was to come from the Magpies.

The hosts produced a remarkable turn- around, piling on 10 goals without reply to skip out to a stunning 41-point lead at three-quarter time.

The Tigers tried to get back into the contest in the last quarter, but it was a forlorn task.

John Lamont’s team sunk to their second loss in three games, tumbled to fourth and took some of the gloss off their hot early form.

Will Fordham, Matt Hanson and Isaac Conway were the stand-out players for the erratic Tigers.

Ben Speight, Aiden Adams and Jason Robinson booted two goals apiece.

The Tigers will face the struggling Northern Blues away at Ikon Park in Carlton on Saturday.

In better news, Werribee Tigers picked up their second win of the season in the AFL Victoria development league, fighting back from three goals down at half-time to beat Frankston by 17 points at Avalon Airport Oval on Saturday night.

Dylan Reid, Tom Holman and Will Krithararis were best for the Tigers.

Reid and Matthew Walson snared two goals each.
