GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 16, 1964 - No. 16
By Neil Griggs: The highlight of the game at the Ex-Servicemen's Oval last Sunday was the 10 goals kicked, in windy conditions, by Ian Crewes.
It was a notable effort - tops for the season, and Ian has now moved into second place to Tom Carroll on the goal-kicking ladder. Pleased supporters rewarded "Killer" with several pints and a variety of cigars.
Griffith were a vastly different team on the good surface and, although a little inaccurate early (1-8 for the first term) scored good goals as the game progressed.
Len Sexton, Vic Hathaway and Ian Crewes were our best three players and, with Terry McGee, should share the T.V. award points.
The bitterly cold wind saw most of the cheer squad huddled in cars, but they would have been out smartly in good voice had their encouragement been needed.
The second 18 recorded another win after a hard and scrambly game, with the wind upsetting both teams. Our best were Denny Dreyer, John Kupsch and Sid Robins.
Griffith and Grong Grong-Matong officials and players appreciated the co-operation of John Harvey, who offered to act for umpire Jenkins.
