A summary of match report, with thanks
A seven-goal haul from Joe Redfern inspired Coolamon to an exciting 39-point victory over Griffith on Saturday. The Hoppers put up their hand for premiership favouritism with their first win over Griffith since 2015, 17.12 (114) to 10.15 (75) at Kindra Park. Coolamon were on from the first minute, bringing ferocious pressure and great intensity to the contest that had the Swans under the pump. In an entertaining contest, Coolamon led by a goal at quarter time, 15 points at the main break and two goals at the final change before running away with the game in the final term. Coolamon six goals to one against a tiring Griffith to move into second position and sound a warning to the remainder of the competition. Redfern was the star as he kicked 7.1 in a match-winning performance at centre half forward. Griffith struggled to go with all three of Coolamon’s forwards and it was Redfern who got off the chain. He marked virtually everything that came his way and was deadly in front of goals, kicking a couple of beauties from tight angles. Luke Redfern and Jake Barrett were dynamic through the midfield and both went forward to kick two goals each. Griffith had winners in James Toscan, Jacob Conlan, Heath Northey, Mick Duncan and Will Griggs. Conlan kicked 5.3 in a dominant display in attack. The Swans lost Jono Gastin to a yellow card in the second term, while Alex Overs injured his hamstring. The win, Coolamon’s fifth in succession, keeps them in the hunt for the minor premiership with four rounds remaining.
