GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" August 3, 1997 - No. 18
The Seniors started well with an eight goal first term and they continued on in the same manner for the rest of the game winning every quarter in a much improved performance. The intensity show in this effort must be repeated each week. The non-contracted players awards were $130 to Ray "Piggy" Willis, $70 to Gary "Man" Argus, $50 to Danny "Freak" Baxter, $30 to Chris "Barbarian" Conlan and $20 to Tony "Captain Snooze" Mahar. Other good players included Alphonse and Pedro Pavey.
The Reserves played well to record a good win. The Bertoldos Bakery bet player awards were $30 to Danny "Mumbles" Tuohey, $20 to David "Bartlett" Gee and $10 to Patrick "Grumpy" Dempsey. The players' player award went to Matthew "Ribs" Kenny and the Mugs' Mug went to Matthew "Marion" Hosking. The McDonalds/Griffith Coaches award went to Colin "Superboot" Cassidy. Good to see "Jacko" Lord in fine form with 5 scintillating goals in the pocket.
The Under 18's had a big win to keep them in touch with the top three. The best players, among many, were Michael Elliott, David Dunn, Michael Tull, Rodney Duncan and Rodney Simpkin.
