A summary of match report, with thanks
Griffith proved they will again be a force to be reckoned with in this year's competition with a resounding 41-point victory over Collingullie-Glenfield Park on Saturday. The Swans did the damage with a sizzling second quarter performance, piling on seven unanswered goals to blow the game open. The reigning premiers fought back but it was only short-lived as Griffith ran out comfortable winners, 13.7 (85) to 6.8 (44). Griffith had the majority of the ball early but were unable to capitalise on the advantage, as the Demons took a three-point lead into quarter time.  The second quarter belonged to Griffith, as 15-year-old Kahlan Spencer announced his arrival to senior footy with a couple of opportunistic goals in the space of five minutes. The half-time siren could not come soon enough for the Demons as Griffith raced to a 39-point lead. Collingullie-GP then responded and controlled the third term. They closed within 18 points at one stage late in the term and could have got closer if it wasn't for a couple of wasted opportunities. Griffith got the all-important first goal of the final term, and four of the five majors for the quarter to run out impressive winners. Griffith coach Will Griggs was pleased to start the year in such positive fashion and was particularly pleased with the team's second and fourth quarters, where they ran in 11 goals to one.
Alex Overs strained a hamstring in the third quarter of the Swans win, while Reece Matheson picked up a minor ankle injury. Overs started the game well and was ferocious around the contest, while Nathan Richards was another to impress in his first game back at the club, ending with three goals. Griggs said the win did very little to ease the pain of last year's grand final defeat to the Demons. For Collingullie-GP, Blake Harper was by far and away their best.
