A summary of match report, with thanks
The Griffith Swans are ruing lost opportunity to climb the Riverina Football League ladder after suffering a heart-breaking four-point loss to Leeton-Whitton at Exies Oval on Saturday. The Swans went down 11.12 (68) to 11.8 (74) after holding narrow leads at quarter time and the major break. Leeton-Whitton, second on the ladder, made their move in the third quarter, a three-goal term helping them to a nine-point lead.

The Swan booted the first major in the last quarter to move within three, but the Crows kicked the next two before going on to record their eighth win of the season.  In a losing effort, Queanbeyan recruits Ben King and Will Griggs were outstanding for the home side, while Toby Conroy starred for the Crows. Swans coach Brandon Mathews said the defeat could prove costly later in the season with the competition so tight. “That’s the third or fourth game we’ve lost by under a goal. It’s getting to the stage where honourable losses aren’t really acceptable,” he said. “We’re really shooting ourselves in the foot. While it was good to get that close, we’re a good footy side.  “If we played to our potential, we’d be up in the pointy end of the ladder. “It’s very frustrating.”  (By Andrew Piva – The Area News, Monday June 29, 2015).
