GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 18, 1971 - No. 14
By Swan: Another nerve tester against Narrandera but this time the result was in our favour by five points.
Our players were hot and cold in turn - had the game virtually won in the first quarter, almost threw it away in the second and third and then came good again. A bit testing on the nerves but still all's well that ends well.
In the early games our youngsters received a football lesson from Narrandera who also won the Seconds.
In the Seconds game, we led most of the match but for some inexplicable reason were swamped 45 to 1 in the last quarter to go down by 37 points.
The Griffith Co-op Stores Toby Lee award for the Firsts went to Garry Owen; Bob Carroll's award (Seconds) to Noel Evans and the sox for the Thirds to Trevor "The Mouse" Harrison.
Our Annual Ball is listed for Friday, August 6 and the Social Committee expects it to be a real swingin' affair. Tickets are now available at Bob Carroll's.
It's Ganmain today and a win is essential if we are to hold our second place coveted by a big field of challengers.
