Tigers defy odds to hold off Blues in stunning result
COMETH the hour, cometh the man.
Portland earned a massive win on the Hampden Football League stage, coming from behind in difficult conditions to defeat Warrnambool 8.10 (58) to 8.9 (57) at Hanlon Park on Saturday.
With a heavy breeze favouring the Hurd St end of the ground, the Tigers led by just eight points at the final change, but would be kicking into the breeze.
With all the pressure on them, the Blues stormed ahead early, before a gutsy fight back from the Tigers, capitalised by goals to coach Luke Crane and first gamer Connor Giddings sealing their fate.
