A summary of match report, with thanks
In what was the Swans' first senior football home game since August of 2019, then sent a strong message with a convincing over Leeton-Whitton. The Crows were able to make a fast start with Taj Doyle, Bryce O'Garey and Sam Darley hitting the scoreboard while Henry Delves kicked the Swans solo major in the opening term. Riley Irvin reduced the margin after the break before Darley booted his second, but the game swung in the Swans favour from that point. The home side kicked seven unanswered goals to take a 34-point lead into the final term, with Delves kicking three while Kahlan Spencer kicked two. The Crows were unable to kick three goals as Tom Meline was thrown forward, but the Swans were able to hold on, with Delves finishing the day with four goals as the home side took an 82 to 46 victory.
