A summary of match report, with thanks
Griffith were forced to work hard for a 52-point victory over Turvey Park on Saturday. The Swans slogged it out in tough conditions at Maher Oval to run out comfortable winners over the Bulldogs 11.13 (79) to 4.3 (27). Griffith director of coaching Adrian Pavese was pleased to come away with the points. “It was a slog,” Pavese said. “Turvey played pretty well actually. “We will take the four points, we’re happy to get through unscathed and we look forward to Coolamon next week.” Griffith’s early kicking didn’t help the side’s cause.
Their radars were off as the Swans finished the first quarter with two goals and five behinds on the scoreboard. Despite the wayward kicking, the defenders were on song as they kept the Bulldogs to nil at quarter-time. The second quarter brought with it some more effective scoring as Griffith lengthened its lead to 37 points. The going got tough in the third term as Turvey stuck it to the visitors and outscored them by a point. The Swans kicked away in the last to register the healthy win. Mick Duncan and Alex Birch were late withdrawals for the Swans.
Tom Clarke impressed in his senior debut for Griffith, while Jordan Iudica, Guy Orton and Sam Daniel were others to shine. Ben King, Will Griggs and Nathan Richards all have kicked doubles for Griffith. The Swans spoke about finals for the first time and believe they are one win away from booking their place in the top five. (By Matt Malone and Ben Jaffrey – The Area News, Monday July 4, 2016).
