A summary of match report, with thanks
A dominant last quarter from the Griffith Swans saw them snatch victory from the jaws of the Turvey Park Bulldogs yesterday at Exies Oval. The Swans were down by two goals going into the final term and were struggling to keep up with the Bulldogs’ tough, contested style of football. “An inspirational goal to live-wire small forward, Dean Crack, kick-started the Swans run in the fourth quarter and crucial goals to Brandon Mathews and Michael Griffiths continued to lift the spirits of the home side.
Griffith player-coach Mathews said the team pulled the victory out of the fire at the end. “We started winning the footy and giving it to blokes in better spots,” he said. The Swans fired out of the blocks from the start thanks to goals from James Fallon and Michael Duncan, but it was a game spiralling ups and downs. “It was probably the best 15 minutes of footy we’ve played all year (the start) and probably the worst two and a half quarters through the middle,” Mathews said. “We were fantastic early and playing on our terms and then started to get a bid ahead of ourselves. “When we faded it took everyone to get us back into the game.”
Michael Duncan once again showed his class for Griffith slotting five goals and racking up several inside 50s when he moved onto the ball in the last term. Dean Crack was able to kick two goals while Trevor Richards, Jonathan Gastin and James Toscan all chipped in with one each. Tom West was once again very reliable in the backline and Kieran Hume impressed in his first outing in the top grade.
A hamstring injury to Fallon is the only concern for the Swans coming away from the game. The victory means the Swans leapfrog Turvey Park on the ladder to go into sixth place and now sit only one win outside the top five and a chance at playing finals.
