A summary of match report, with thanks
It’s hard to know what to say to your team when they’ve just lost by more than 100 points. Griffith Swans coach Guy Orton found himself speechless when addressing his boys after their devastating loss to Collingullie-AshmontKapooka on Saturday afternoon. It was the side’s third loss of the season but the others – to Leeton-Whitton and Wagga Tigers – had been by less than 10 points.

This time, the margin was 108.
“What can you say? We just didn’t play well,” Orton said to The Area News yesterday. “It was a bad day and I’m not going to bring it up to the boys again. “We’re just going to move on.” 
The Swans took a less-than-perfect side to Collingullie, missing James Toscan through injury and James Fallon, who was sick.

But Orton was not using excuses. “It just wasn’t our day,” he said. “We were a fair bit down at quarter-time and we came back a bit, but it was nowhere near enough. “They always play their ground well and we didn’t. “There’s not much we can learn from the game, but it brought us back to reality.” CAK got off to a roaring start in the match, kicking 5.8 to Griffith’s 1.1 in the first quarter.

They piled on another five goals in the second term to give themselves a 57-point lead at half time. The carnage continued into the second half, with CAK booting another 13 goals and the Swans only managed five. “They just smashed us in the last quarter,” Orton said.

“I’m obviously disappointed but I’m not going to worry about it. “We’ll just pick ourselves up and keep going.”
