A summary of match report, with thanks
Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes' premiership assault gained further momentum with a comprehensive victory over Griffith on Saturday. A week after upstaging Collingullie-Glenfield Park, the Goannas produced a brilliant first half performance that laid the platform for a 41-point win, 13.9 (87) to 5.16 (46) at Mangoplah Sportsground. MCUE full-forward Jordan Foster continued his white-hot form with an eight-goal performance, seven of which came in a dominant first half. Foster kicked five of the MCUE's six goals in the first term as they used the breeze to full advantage and opened up a 36-point lead. They then came out and extended the margin in the second term as Griffith disappointed with the breeze, and MCUE went into half-time 42 points in front.
Griffith, after copping a ferocious spray at the break, were much more competitive in the second half but the damage had already been done. Foster was the star of the show with a sensational first half and was the best for MCUE. Lucas and Jacob Conlan showed plenty of promise for Griffith in what was an otherwise disappointing day for the Swans. (By Matt Malone - The Area News, Monday August 21, 2017).
