GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 30, 1968 - No. 11
By Swan: It wasn't really easy but we did manage to topple the Bombers at Ariah Park by outstaying them in a fast, tough game. Griffith fans were worried in the third quarter when we were outscored 34-1, but after their rest period the team staged a Bernborough eight goal finish to make all their supporters happy.
Our kicking 17-6 in such conditions was the match winning effort, and it came mainly through good unselfish teamwork.
Turning in a sizzling exhibition of roving, Kevin Kirkpatrick was our best and took the three points in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award from John Foley (2) and Darryl Collis (1).
Bill Tyndall in his first game with Griffith this year justified the selectors faith and played well throughout. He will be very handy.
To make it a really good day the Seconds and Thirds also won. Best for the Seconds: Les Hodson, Mick Newman, John Walsh and for the Thirds: Glenn Mackenzie, Garry Gardner, Denis Tyndall.
Today Bill Biron plays his 200th first grade game with Griffith. He has been a grand player for many years so let us give him a big hand as he leads out the team.
Last week's star player was Kevin Kirkpatrick - brilliant and tenacious rover. Notes No. 12 >>>
