Match report: Mangoplah on Saturday handed out one of the best thrashings in recent times given to a Griffith team at Exies Oval. There was always thought behind their tactics. They played to a well-laid plan and rarely did they waste a kick. The visitors were too skilled and too good on the day. The Swans matched the Goannas individually, but lack of teamwork resulted in a big defeat for them. Mangoplah favoured by better teamwork, bounce of the ball, and some funny decision by the umpires managed to establish a three-quarter time lead which the Swans couldn't overcome. The harder Griffith tried to do the right thing, the more each player appeared to have two left feet and two hands full of thumbs. Too many Swans players after having made all the mistakes in the book by half-time, and during the third term managed some new ones. Constantly turning into trouble, passing to an opponent, unnecessary handball, spilt marks - you name 'em, Griffith made 'em. The Goannas were playing like a class side as they flashed the ball from one to another - good tactics that held a winning 31-point lead. The final term was all over before it started and both sides were content to coast along, and two goals each resulted to the game's best performers Mangoplah's captain coach Nelson Foley and Griffith's recruit Cooper Kilpatrick. Besides a fiery three-quarter time, address to his players from Swans coach Greg Dreyer the games' major talking point was Swans Charlie Cunial second term full blooded collision with Harrison Wheeler. From the other side of the boundary fence, one could hear that smack of flesh on flesh. As luck had it, the Goannas youngster having completed concussion protocols, found himself back on the playing field during the third term.
