GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 25, 1968 - No. 19
By Swan: In a thrilling grandstand finish last Sunday, A.P.-Mirrool may have been a little unlucky not to share the points, but we had the score on the board at the siren and that's what counts.
For once our forwards had an off day and the missing of so many deliberate shots from marks and free almost cost us top place - hope this inaccuracy was just a passing phrase.
As it was, we won our 10th game in a row and if fortune smiles on us, we hope to go on and make it 13 straight before the season ends.
The Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award points went to Bill Biron 3, John Scott 2 and Sid Robins 1.
The Seconds won their game with a devastating burst in the second quarter when they outscored A.P.-Mirrool 54 to 1. They finally won by 51 points and after a long struggle have made the final four.
A.P.-Mirrool could only muster 4 players for the Thirds game, so we let them four and after a good game won 58-33.
The under 14 schoolboys team became the first Griffith team to win a premiership for a long time when on Saturday last, they defeated Narrandera in the Leeton Zone Finals.
Congratulations to these youngsters - hope their win was a forerunner to another one or two this year.
