A summary of match report, with thanks
Griffith produced a big last quarter to run over the top of Leeton-Whitton on Saturday. The Swans kicked the last four goals of the contest to win the local derby by 25 points, 9.15 (69) to 6.8 (44) at Leeton Showground.
Leeton-Whitton led by four points at three-quarter time, but the Swans finished full of running with the breeze to bounce back with a hard-fought victory. Griffith coach Will Griggs said the Crows certainly made his team work hard for the four points.
“It was a tight contest until the last quarter,” Griggs said. “I said at the start of game, we knew we were a bit depleted, we didn’t have to do it pretty, we just had to get the points and we did, which was good.”
Leeton-Whitton injuries worries continued with Jade Hodge taken to hospital after a heavy concussion. Jacob Conlan and Mick Duncan were Griffith’s best. (By Matt Malone - The Area News, Monday August 5, 2019)
