A summary of match report, with thanks
After completely overwhelming Leeton-Whitton early on for a 62-point lead at half-time, the Griffith Swans survived a Crows resurgence to take a 12.23 (95) to 6.5 (41) victory in their Riverina Football League match at the Ex-Servicemen's Oval yesterday afternoon.

The Swans dominated the first half, Leeton held scoreless in the opening term and managed just two behinds in the second quarter as the home side booted 9.10 for a massive half-time lead. However, the Crows came out in the third quarter with nothing to lose and more than matched their opposition for the rest of the game as the Swans struggled to find their usual rhythm.

Denied easy shots by the Leeton defence, Griffith booted an unimpressive 1.8 for the third term and only just managed to better that in the last, two late goals the only Swans majors for the quarter.  The Crows kicked 6.5 for the second half to outscore their more fancied opposition, although in the end the margin was too great to bridge.
