Kangaroos outclassed by dominant Tigers

PORTLAND’S Hampden Football League season reached an exhilarating new high on Sunday afternoon with the Tigers burying the Hamilton Kangaroos by 101 points.

Portland had every reason to feel confident heading into the Anzac Day clash – fresh from a win against Port Fairy, the Tigers entered the match with the same record as the Kangaroos – one win and one loss.
