Faulkner wins Mick Nolan Medal

The Tiger faithful may have celebrated 90 years of footy in the Black and Gold at the Den yesterday but it was Luke Faulkner who iced the cake helping himself to fourteen goals and a unanimous choice to receive the Mick Nolan Medal.

In another dominant display at full forward, Faulkner made the most of every opportunity that came his way either taking exciting pack marks or shooting for goal.

Once again, the back line was impenetrable with Captain Calen Brown marshalling his troops to restrict any chance of the Caboolture Lions breaking the line. However, to their credit, the Lions never gave in and kept attacking right to the last.

The Tigers welcomed back club stalwart Andrew Housego after a three week hiatus and he was quickly back into the action with seven goals and a vintage display.

The absence of Coach Shaun Daly from the lineup with a bout of the flu didn’t stop the midfield as Dom Smith continued on his good form while ruckman Luke Howard controlled the stoppages in the middle and around the ground.

The Tigers play Caloundra next week at the Den in what shapes as an important challenge as the competition moves further into the second round. Mayne will welcome back Daly and still hopes to get experienced midfielder Nikos Keim back into the lineup soon.

Scores: Mayne 37.27.249 d Caboolture 0.1.1

Goals: L Faulkner 14, A Housego 7, Z McLean 3, C Sellen 2, J Maher 2, L Ferguson 2, L Howard 2, D Smith, L Bourke, T Murtha, J Duffy, J Magill 1.

Best: L Faulkner, A Housego, L Howard, C Brown, J Robinson, D Smith.
