GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" August 1, 1998 - No. 16
LAPSES at crucial times in the Seniors resulted in a loss in what was a good, hard game of football against Turvey Park. We really need to start winning games and give us a chance of competing in September so lets start now.
The awards were sponsored by The Athletes Foot and the Ex-Servicemen's Club. Dinner for two was won by Frank 'Please come around and visit me' Matthews, the Billabong award was won by Damien "Superkick" Scott, and the Lowes award was won by Phil "Sleeping Beauty" Rowston. The McDonalds / Griffith Coaches award was won by Tony "That's my bike" Mahar.
The 2nds played four quarters of football and had a good win. The awards were $30 and the Players Player Mug was won by Mark 'Rowdy' McCormack, $20 to Tony "The Ant" Butcher, and $10 to Adrian "The ghost who walks" Stibbard. The McDonalds / Griffith Coaches award was won by Brent "Macatmacoat" Hathaway.
The Under 18's battled hard but were defeated by strong opposition. The awards were $15 to Paul Kite, $10 to Jake Maguire and $5 to Stephen Mitchell. The McDonalds / Griffith Coaches award was won by Tom Spry.
The Netballers put on a great display in an enjoyable game only to be defeated by 37 to 31.
