A summary of match report, with thanks
The Griffith Swans have slipped into third spot on the Riverina Football League ladder after a deflating 46-point loss to Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong yesterday. Despite trailing for the entire match, the Swans kept in touch until the final quarter when the home side booted 7.7 to coast home to victory. But Swans president George Duncan said it was always going to be a tough ask for the Swans with six regular first graders sidelined through injury and they performed well with the side they had.
"It was just a good game of footy, a good physical contest," Duncan said. "It was neck and neck all the way through." Regular first graders and key play makers Rod Duncan and Matt McDonald were both out, with Greg Tyack, Rod Simpkin, and Matt and Myles Bunn also unavailable.
Ganmain-GGM centre half-back Scott Hamblin was able to celebrate his 250 games in style with yesterday's win. Hamblin was best-on-ground during his milestone game at Ganmain Sportsground, which saw the Lions take a stranglehold on the Riverina Football League.
Having only returned from a hand injury last week, Hamblin was a standout in the win. "We should have buried them, but we still won," he said. "Unfortunately, we kicked a lot of points and couldn't put Griffith out of the game for a long time.
"It is good though; it gives us a clear lead on the ladder." "Yeah, we were a bit wayward, but we got over the line." he added.
Ashley Gardner kicked three goals for the visitors while Mick Duncan, Dave Curran and Jamie Bennett all grabbed two goals.
