GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" May 10, 1997 - No. 6
It was certainly a match of two contrasting halves at the Mangoplah Sportsground last Sunday. The first half was a physical affair with the scores close at half time. The second half produced a turn around in which Griffith kicked 17 goals to none to record a comfortable victory.
The non contracted players award were $130 to Jamie "Jimbob" Bennet, $70 to Trevor "Trucker" Clarke, $30 to Greg "Grumpy" Dreyer, $30 to Matthew "The Goolgowi kid" Bunn and $20 to Gary "Man" Argus. The players' player award was won by Don "Skills" Moran with an outstanding game. Others good players included Graeme "The Courderoy Boy" Woods and Anthony "Charlie" Pavey.
The Reserves played four quarters of football to have a big win. The awards were $30 to Daniel "Mutley" Tuohey, $20 to David "Digger" Gee, and $10 to Jason "The Yoogali Club kid" Catazariti. The players' player ward went to Brent 'Get to training" Harrison.
The Under 18's also played well after a very early start to the day and they recorded a huge win under Pete "Ronald Dale" Lonergan's in the absence of George. The players included Shane Russell, Jake Kearney, Stuart Davies and Michael Tull.
I have no Netball scores to record on again but I do know that both A and B Grade were defeated.
