A summary of match report, with thanks
The Griffith Swans continued their rise up the Riverina Football League ladder with a 41-point win over Mangoplah-Cookardinia United Eastlakes on Saturday. The Swans moved into second spot on the ladder with a strong second-half effort helping them to the four points, winning 13.6 (84) to 6.7 (43). The game was in the balance at the main break with Griffith holding a three-point advantage, but the Swans kicked away in the second half with eight goals to two.
Griffith teenager Jacob Conlan was swung forward, and he proved the match-winner with an impressive five-goal haul. The Swans were most damaging in the midfield with Jordan Iudica, Ben King, Guy Orton and Mick Duncan all enjoying big days.
Griffith director of coaching Adrian Pavese revealed his confidence was dented following a number of late withdrawals. “We were happy with the win, especially with the blokes we had out, and to come back in,” Pavese said. “Dean Crack didn’t get up like we had hoped, and then we lost Ben McRae to a quad (on Friday night) and Kieran Ruyg then pulled out (Saturday) with illness.
“So, I was a bit apprehensive how the day was going to go but they were just awesome, the boys lifted and played really good footy.” Pavese said he knew with the game in balance at half-time that his team would finish strong. “We had a real belief, given our second halves have been good all year, that if we were thereabouts than we could do some damage in the second half,” he said.
“And consequently, we did some real damage. “To win by seven goals was good but I loved the way we were still willing to get dirty, put our heads down over the ball and win the footy, not just the front runners.” (By Matt Malone – The Area News, Monday June 13, 2016).
