Playing their second game in five days seemed to not be a worry for Kingborough as they defeated Glenorchy 8.12 (60) to 8.2 (50) at KGV.
Backing up their mid-week win over North Hobart, the Tigers jumped out of the gates with a bang, piling on five goals to two in the first quarter.
But Glenorchy stars Jaye Bowden, who was one of six inclusions into the side, and Callen Daly had other ideas, swinging the momentum back as the Magpies trailed by just one point at the main break.
The pair both had three to their name, as did Tyler Carter, and Bowden would add a fourth in the opening minutes of the second half, with the Magpies threatening to take the game away as they claimed their first lead of the day.
Tassie Devil Ryan Banks-Smith added to the Tigers' worries with another goal but some magic from Will Campbell and a second from Jack Bilson steadied the ship as they struggled to convert their opportunities into majors.
With the Tigers leading by six, the last term would be a whole different story as the tight contest turned into a war of attrition with neither side registering a score for the opening 13 minutes of play until a Kieran Lovell snap went wayward.
Neither side would register a goal in the term, securing the Tigers victory but it wasn't without its scares with former Gold Coast Sun Mackenzie Willis helped off the ground with a wrist complaint, only to return minutes later.
The win, set up by the work of Lovell, Willis and Carter, sees the Tigers rocket into fifth position while Paul Kennedy's men slip to sixth.
