A summary of match report, with thanks
The Griffith Swans reserve grade side have secured a place in the decider for the third straight season after defeating Coolamon in the preliminary final at Robertson Oval. The Swans have put last weekend first loss of the season behind them as a strong final quarter saw them able to secure their place in the reserve grade grand final with a 10.11 (71) to 6.2 (38) win over the Rovers.
The Swans headed into the game without coach Dean Catanzariti who hurt his ankle in the major semi-final against Collingullie while Jake Villata also didn’t pull up from a shoulder injury.
The Griffith side were able to bury the demons of last weekend as they got out to a 20-point lead at the first interval. The Rovers were able to make more of an impression in the second quarter but with both teams kicking three goals in the term to see the Swans leading by 16 points at the major break. The Swans were able to maintain their lead of around three goals heading into the final term before closing the game out with another three in the final term while restricting the Rovers to just one goal saw the Griffith side book their place with a 33-point win. Assistant coach Trevor Richards paid credit to the way his side approached the contest.'''
“Our pressure all around the ground was great,” he said. “We just kept hunting and hunting and didn’t let them have any time on the ball. “They had their moments, but the boys kept their heads and played really well.” Unfortunately, it wasn’t all good news for the Swans as their C grade netballers season came to a close. After finishing the season on top of the table, the Griffith side bow out in straight sets after a narrow 24- 23 loss to Turvey Park. (By Liam Warren – The Area News, Monday September 16, 2019)
