A summary of match report, with thanks
Griffith Swans came close to upsetting Riverina Football League high-flyers Narrandera at Narrandera Sportsground but were eventually downed by 31 points. The loss ends any hopes the Swans had of making the finals. The visitors started the day full of running and led 67-61 at half-time, thanks to a superb seven-goal second quarter. But the Eagles were able to wear down the Swans and came charging home, outscoring Griffith five goals to one in the final term. "I think our skills in the second half let us down," Griffith captain-coach said.

"We turned the over the ball at crucial times and they were able to capatalise and got a few easy goals. "The whole day I thought we tried hard and pressured them ... but it was a good effort. McLean singled out Matt Crack, Craig Conlan and Roger Heenan for their performances.

In a better result for the club, Rod Duncan led the Swans' reserve grade side to a healthy 89-point win over the Eagles.  Duncan booted nine majors and Chris Forwood five as the Swans ran out 153-64 victors. It was also a happy day for the Swans under 18's side when it thrashed Narrandera 92-27. Jace Iemma kicked three goals and James Fallon and Daniel Keenan kicked two.

The Swans netball sides made a clean sweep against Narrandera, winning all four grades. The A grade side continued its march to the finals after yesterday's 43-25 win. "(The Area News - Monday August 13, 2007).
