A summary of match report, with thanks
The Griffith Swans knew they were in for a big challenge when they travelled to Ganmain to take on the GGGM Lions and these concerns were proved correct on Saturday afternoon. Despite some brief periods of promise and cohesion, the Swans ultimately lost 44 to 74. In a similar vein to many of their games this season, the Swans started brightly and kept the scores close to the end of the first quarter, as they headed into the second term just one point off the heavy favourites. But also, in true form to their season so far, the Griffith side crumbled in the middle of the game, allowing the Lions to build a big lead in both the second and third terms. The Swans however regrouped for the final term and managed to keep their opponents from scoring any goals to end the game. The result sees Ganmain-GGM go top of the table, while Griffith will look to lift themselves off the bottom spot against Narrandera next weekend.
