GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" September 9, 1995 - No. 22
When you put your best side available on the paddock in an aggressive mood and with the desire to win the hard ball it wasn't surprising that the Firsts won in the way they did against Ganmain-GGM.
Bob Spears on the way to the footy said that Griffith had never lost a finals match at Leeton, so that's one record that hasn't been damaged.
The Under 18's played Wagga last week and because of their inability to kick goals and some undisciplined actions lost against the side they had beaten only a couple of weeks ago. The U18's had most of the play in the first half and with only 16 players for most of the second half, but when you consider they had 20 scoring shots to 19 and only to go down by 20 points, they can consider themselves unlucky. This week they have an opportunity to do unto Ganmain as the Firsts did last week and wouldn't that be nice. The sponsors awards went to Steven Serafin $20, Rodney Savage $15 and Bill Furner $10, while Glen Vaccari, and Kane Duncan were other good players.
It certainly shows that when you have Ganmain and Griffith playing each other the size of the gate is going to be big, so it's going to be interesting to see if the drawing power of Griffith and Temora at Narrandera will be bigger than Turvey Park & Wagga in Wagga.
The Seniors have to repeat the dose this weekend against Temora and we will be one step closer to the grand final, which I'm sure they can do. Last week the incentive award winners were Greg Collins $50, Danny Files $50, Jamie Bennett $30 and Tony Butcher $20, with Brett Davis (B.O.G.), Don Moran, Phil Rowston, Shane Ruyg were other good players.
Congratulations to Phil Rowston, Richie Telfer and Matthew Olney on being our Best & Fairest winners on Sunday night. Special thanks to Paul Habel on getting Paul Hudson and Rayden Tallis up for the development work they did last week as well.
