A summary of match report, with thanks
The Griffith Swans' battle for a finals spot took a blow on Saturday in their round 13 clash against Coolamon, going down by 48 points at Kindra Park. The Swans never got into the game, trailing after each period before eventually succumbing 12.10 (82) to 4.10 (34). Griffith came into the game sitting fifth and trailing the fourth placed Coolamon by just four points. After the loss on Saturday, they now see themselves sitting seventh on the ladder. The first quarter saw the Swans fall behind big as Coolamon were near perfect in front of goals, kicking 6.1 (37) for the period. On the other end, the Swans kicked just 1.3 (9) in front of the sticks. The second period provided glimpses of the Swans turning it around, but it was their inaccuracy in front of goals that would come back to haunt them. Despite having only two fewer scoring shots from Coolamon, the Swans found themselves trailing by 32 points at the half-time.

The break didn't seem to do either team any favours, with both teams amassing just ten points between them in the third period. It was the Swans that fell behind further as they could only account for one behind in the period. The fourth period told the same story as the Swans managed just 1.3 (9) to Coolamon's 2.5 (17). Joshua Hamilton, James Toscan, Daniel Peruzzi and Chris Cerato each slotted home one goal apiece, but it was Coolamon's Rick Pritchett who stole the show, nailing seven goals, with four coming in the first period.

Swans assistant coach Tom Groves said Coolamon started the game much better than they did. "It was a very disappointing loss, and we went in there with full confidence that we could win," Groves said.

"They came out of the blocks fast right from the start and we couldn't weather the storm quickly enough." He said a lack of finishing definitely hurt our cause. "They really hit us hard early and kicked some vital goals," he said. "We had similar inside 50's but we just didn't take our opportunities."
