A summary of match report, with thanks
Edited: A dominant second half has led Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong to their 10th win of the season over a competitive Griffith side. The Lions kicked 11 goals to one during the second half on their way to a 16.14 (100) to 6.10 (46) win over the Swans. GGGM coach Sam Martyn was happy to get the win but admitted that they were far from their best during the first half. "It's been a bit of a trend of ours to start games off really well with our first quarters," Martyn said. "But then we found ourselves under the pump in the second. "Griffith sort of rectified a few things that they weren't doing, and I think pressure was the number one thing that they beat us at." After being 15 points down at quarter time, the Swans rallied during the second quarter kicking three goals and narrowing the margin to three at half time.
The Lions came out a different side after the half time break and kicked six goals to none extending their narrow three-point margin to 39 when the teams came in for the last change. Martyn said it was addressing some football basics that led his side getting on top during the third quarter. "I think our pressure lifted first and foremost which was definitely important because they we were definitely out-hunting us," he said. Martyn was impressed with the effort of his whole team during the second half but singled out a few players who he thought had impressive performances. "I felt Lachie Parker was sensational today, he provided a lot of pressure up in the forward line," he said.
"He got his rewards by listening to instructions and getting to that position that we asked him to. "I thought Jesse Lander was fantastic in the middle, just when we needed someone to lift that pressure and be that one to stand up in the contest, he was the man we looked to.
