GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" August 25, 1991 - No. 19
Shock horror last week as our wonderful netballers lost their first game after a ten game winning streak but while most people were looking for Elvis Presley on Friday the netball side was ‘desperately seeking Karen’ but this did not deter Nicole Hathaway and Sandra Cone from playing great games and getting amongst the best players.
Young Ronnie Whittaker was BOG in a marvellous game which kept the U18s on top of the ladder. Eddie Knight, young Murph and Hully also shared the honours.
The Second Grade with a much better side on paper that the week before got away to a slow, lethargic start before cleaning out the cobwebs and going on to win by a good margin. Roy ‘Woy Woy’ Rinaldo, Peter McFeast, Chris ‘F-Patrol’ Files, James Reid and Grant Cameron were the best players.
The ‘Legend’ kicked seven deadly goals and Leon Stow, Bruno Mancini’s right hand man, was best on ground. The lads kicking was ‘way out of bounds’ which detracted from a strong win.
Congratulations go to the U15s for winning their grand final on Saturday.
The No Talent Night really packed out the hall after Saturdays game and the crowd had no need to be nervous. A ‘Pavese’ better known as half of the super Mario brothers act, showed how multi talented he is. Bopping up as lead singer in the Big Sow and the 7 Piglets act. But the night belonged to ‘Hux’ one of our most costly imports from Sydney who all year claimed to come from the North Shore area of Sydney but let almost everything else out of the bag revealing he hails from Oxford Street, Paddington after wearing his mardi gras costume on Saturday night.
This week its over to the green playing fields of Coolamon as we try to jump clear of the hoppers.
