A summary of match report, with thanks
TURVEY PARK has taken out a strong contender for match of the year after defeating Griffith by three-points at Maher Oval.
After a tight opening term between the two sides, the Bulldogs got the upper hand in the second kicking four goals to one to extend their lead out to 21-points at half-time. Luke Fellows kicked the first major in the third term before Griffith got on a roll kicking the next four to bring the margin within a kick before Fellows and Jesse Margosis responded with goals for the Bulldogs to steady the ship.
The Swans however regrouped again kicking the next three to head into the last break with a narrow three-points margin.
Griffith then extended their lead out to 15 points halfway through the last term following back-to-back goals to Alex Page.
However, the Bulldogs refused to lie down with goals to Antony Forato, Brad Ashcroft and finally Harry Stapleton edged Turvey back in front as they ran out winners 12.4 (76) to 11.7 (73).
Bulldog's coach Michael Mazzocchi was proud of the way that his side fought back late with their backs well and truly against the wall.
"I don't think I've really coached a Turvey team that's been able to come from behind to actually win a game, obviously it's a young group and once they get down, they tend to stay down. But that was a massive back against the wall moment because we went from four goals up to three goals down." After being so strong in the second term, Mazzocchi admitted his side let the Swans back in the contest in the third which was spearheaded by ruckman Nathan Richards and the on-ball trio of Rhys Pollock, Jack Rowston and Kahlan Spencer.
The game wasn't without its controversy though with Sam Daniel being awarded two questionable marks after both the halftime and three-quarter time sirens, the second of which gave the Swans the lead. (By Jimmy Meiklejohn -The Daily Advertiser - Monday May 22, 2023).
