A summary of match report, with thanks
A seven-goal haul from Marc Geppert helped Collingullie-Glenfield Park to a 48-point victory over Griffith on Saturday. Billed as the match of the round, the Demons ran riot in the second half to continue their undefeated start to the season, winning 13.13 (91) to 6.7 (43) at Crossroads Oval. The Demons' inaccuracy in front of goal kept Griffith in the contest early as the home team went into half-time 10 points clear. Collingullie-GP put the foot down after the break and kicked nine goals to three to consolidate their top spot on the Riverina League ladder. Geppert was virtually unstoppable in attack for Collingullie-GP in a seven-goal, best-on-ground display.

Just as important at the other end of the ground, Jimmy Morris did the job on Griffith full-forward Brent Arho. In his return to Crossroads Oval, Morris worked hard to ensure Arho had no impact on the scoreboard. Morris had been tried at full-back during the pre-season and was swung there to do the job on Arho and did it exceptionally well. It was a disappointing result for Griffith, who were well served by Will Griggs and Mick Duncan and will be looking to bounce back when they return home to take on Wagga Tiger next weekend.
