GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" April 14, 1995 - No. 2
It's been that long since Griffith had a win at Ganmain that no one can put a firm date on it and to win in the first game and in such style was a great start for the season. However, the Seconds and Under 18's failed to win which takes away a little off the gloss. The Under 18's put in a shocker as coach Terry Bennett put it, so it can only get better with more games together and with improvement the side will be a very competitive outfit. Best players were Matt Olney, Glen Vaccari, Matt Kenny, Adam Sara and Kane Duncan.
'Jokers' Warriors put in a magnificent effort on the bus trip home, but unfortunately that wasn't the case on the field, despite having 60% of the play, the lack of goal kickers in the forward line resulted in the gaming being lost. With some tall timber to come back into the side it will be a very competitive side throughout the season, providing everyone sticks together. The award winners were Brendan "Bomber" Browne $30, Richard Telfer $20, and the Players' Player award as well, as Chris Noack the $10. Bomber also won the guzzler's mug. Other good players were Craig "Joker" Bretherton and Ian Geddes.
The First Grade also put in a top team effort with everyone making an contribution towards the win. With no passengers in the side they controlled the game from start to finish. The incentive award winners, which was sponsored by Quiprite, were Chris Conlan $100, Danny Files $50, Matt Cox $30 and Owen Geddes $20, and the Players' Player award went to Jason Vaccari. Other good players were Gary Argus, Brett Davis and Phillip Rowston.
Sorry girls, but I didn't have any netball info to hand. Tonight it's Turvey Park, so let's set ourselves for a big weekend and get five wins!
