A summary of match report, with thanks
On a perfect winter's day, the Griffith Swans held Collingullie-Glenfield Park to a goalless third quarter as the home side secured victory at the Exies Oval. The first quarter was as tight as they come with both sides slotting five goals apiece, but CGP took a slender two-point lead.

The Demons furthered their lead to eight points before half-time arrived. Griffith kicked into gear after returning to the field.

The third quarter was the most dominant in terms of the score as Swans kicked four goals and gave themselves an 18-point buffer heading into the final term.  A four-goal final quarter handed Griffith victory 15.9 (99 to 11.6 (72) over Collingullie-GP. Swans coach Brandon Mathews said his side looked the goods when they stuck to their game-plan. "We played how we want to play," Mathews said. "The first quarter was really good for us and them (CGP) were really good in the second quarter. "It's pretty basic how we play footy, it's a lot of team orientated stuff. "We were being a little selfish at times but in the second half everyone got on board." 
The win pushes Griffith into sixth place, just outside the top five on percentage. Despite the scoreboard being so one-sided in the third quarter, Mathews said it didn't reflect the tone of the quarter. "I wouldn't say we dominated, we made most of our opportunities," Mathews said. "It was a physical game, a hard game of footy, Gullie are such a good side. "We probably won more of the footy and our backline stood up." Griffith's forwards were on song with the boot, kicking incredibly straight and not wasting goal scoring chances.

Mathews said accuracy had let his side down in recent weeks. "It was a cracking day for footy, probably perfect conditions," he said. Apart from small lapses in concentration, Mathews was happy with the performance. He was happy with everyone's performance and found it hard to single out any players.
