The Home and Away Season has come to an end for the Tigers with more than its fair share of heart break. Four tough losses may not have been how we envisioned our season to end but we can take away that the Tigers are almost there with three hard fought matches against even competition in Nashville, Ohio Valley, and Atlanta, and a more productive than usual attack against a seemingly always stacked Houston side.
Results from second half of the season:
8/8/15: Nashville Tournament: Nashville vs Baton Rouge 9.3.57 7.5.47
8/8/15: Nashville Tournament: Baton Rouge vs Ohio Valley 4.4.28 4.5.29
9/5/15: Baton Rouge vs Houston 7.8.50 15.15.105
9/19/15: Baton Rouge vs Atlanta 11.6.72 12.8.80
Also, we would not be able to host the matches that we do or travel down the road without the
support of volunteers that do everything from umpire and keep score to run water and cook jambalaya!
We cannot thank you all enough! If you are interested in supporting the Tigers in the future email us at
We would also like to give a HUGE thank you to Benjamin Record of Record Dental in Central for his fabulous sponsorship of our new uniforms. We hope you can appreciate how big this was for our club.
All season long it seemed a different group of individual Tigers would step up each game and show the leadership and skills that the club needs as a group in order to succeed. The second half of the season saw Club Best on Ground points go to the following players: Mitch Gray- 5 pts; Rob Montanaro-4 pts; Josh Cartmill, Matt Heintze, Kyle Jackson and Ryan Moran- 3 pts each; Dwayne Smith- 2 pts; John Zimmerman- 1 pt; and Coaches Awards going to Ryan Baldasarro, Josh Cartmill, and Austin LeBouef.
Season Standings for Club Best on Ground:

Next up for the Tigers is the USAFL National Tournament on October 17th and 18th in Austin, TX. We will join forces with our friends in Houston to play in Division 4. Make plans to attend, come support the Tigers/Lonestars, and enjoy a weekend of quality footy in a great town! In the meantime, we will continue open training sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6pm at Westdale Middle School.
