A summary of match report, with thanks
The good fortune at home hasn't followed the Griffith Swans in their final away game of the season. The Swans headed to Kindra Park to take on third-place Coolamon, and it was the Rovers who were able to take the points with a 21.14 (140) to 9.10 (64) victory. It was an evenly matched start in the game, with the margin sitting at just 10 points at the first change. The Coolamon side built on their lead, kicking four goals to two in the second to take a 29-point lead into the main break. It was in the third quarter where the home side blasted away, kicking seven goals to two, and the Swans weren't able to close the gap in the final term as the Rovers came away with a 76-point win.

Sam Daniel, Jay Summers and James Toscan kicked two majors each for the Swans, while for the Rovers, Jeremy Sykes and Joe Redfern got four each. It was a tough day for the reserve grade side, who fell to a 60-point defeat which sees them drop out of the top five, while the 17.5s picked up second win on the bounce.  (By Liam Warren - The Area News, Monday August 15, 2022).


SWANS CRASHED AT KINDRA PARK - By " The Man on the Fence" 
AFTER a spell of two games without defeat our Swans crashed at Kindra Park last Saturday. I know it will sound improbable to supporters who were not there, but the fact remains, we played good football, the equal of the home side in all the arts of the game in the first half. True, the second half was all Coolamon Rovers, but it was those seven successive 'Hopper' goals in the third quarter that brings us back to the same position in which we have found ourselves all season. We have a young team, and they are all over anxious to do well but only experience can really combat it. This Saturday we stage the last of our RFNL matches on the Exies Sports Oval for the year, and I trust you will have the pleasure of watching the Boys have a good win.
