GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" July 12, 1992 - No. 12

Well we finally got back in the winning way, even though it looked unimpressive from the sidelines. Leeton took the match up to us in what was a good display and it was only in the 2nd quarter which allowed us to take the points.

The Redlegs may be down at the moment, but if they can keep some of the good juniors, who showed the wares last Sunday, around the club then they will have something to work with in the future. As said, it wasn’t an impressive win or finals form, but 4 points at this stage of the season is 4 points.

Any points today are imperative if we are going to hold our spot in the four and make a nuisance of ourselves around about September. Gary Argus was again best on the paddock for us last week, but Gerry Toscan won the Encouragement Award, sponsored by Ian and Barb Wade, from Jamie Bennett, Ricky Burdett and Scott Angrove.

The Reserves had a good win to hang onto 4th spot and will have to go bad to miss the four being two games clear of Coolamon. A win today will widen that gap and virtually book us a game in the finals. In the easy win there were plenty of good players with the evergreen Darrell Collins again pulling the boots out of the cupboard to kick 12 goals, while Andy McCashney was the best of then along with Tony DeSensa, Malcolm Burke, up from the U18s and Paul Woolnough.

The U18s put up a good performance against Leeton and it was only in the last bit where they were defeated. Paul Rovers finally had a good game, Angus Patterson, Michael Reid, Malcolm Burke again, Ken O’Driscoll and Nathan Duff.

The Netballers are hanging onto third spot in A Grade with a hard fought 15-12 win over Leeton and while the B Grade went down 20-11 it is good to see a side on the paddock.

The Club wishes all the best to the mad Irishman Gerry Gallagher, who is leaving Griffith and after a couple of weeks in Melbourne is going to kiss Blarney Stone. He got a good send off in the clubrooms on Thursday and there are some Swan Supporters still looking the worse for wear today.
