A summary of match report, with thanks
A fiery game erupted between the Griffith Swans and GGGM Lions at the Exies Oval on Sunday. It was a hard-hitting, highly physical game between the two teams, but once the smoke cleared the Lions emerged victorious with a decisive 91-63 win. Swans coach Will Griggs said Sunday’s game had not been the team’s best performance of the season. “We were very patchy. Too many of us were off our game today,” Griggs said. “There were a few blokes who won their positions, but there were too many who didn’t. “It doesn’t help when you have seven of your top players out, but we welcome them back over the next few weeks.” Griggs did, however, give a special shout-out to Jacob Conlan whose fearsome performance as a forward earned his team three goals.
The Swans started the game off on the front foot, but then allowed a couple of easy points to slip past them in the second quarter of the match. However, in the third quarter, the Swans shored up their defence’s and it was looking as though they might just have a shot at turning things around. After some clever play the Swans managed to narrow the gap between them, but still finished the third quarter behind 48-56. The Swans momentum was short-lived, and by the time the fourth quarter rolled around the Lions had secured a sizeable lead 91 to 63.
