GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Sou'Wester" September 10, 1978 - No. 19
By Swan: Congratulations Ariah Park ... you showed us too much endeavour and spirit to allow us a chance to beat you on your own ground. You made us look ineffective while your own game was top class ... how come you are so far down the ladder? However, defeat or victory only has a one week value ... with one exception we include a premiership win or loss another matter. We know we fumbled our way into defeat last Sunday but today against the Redlegs on a ground where we have more room, we expect to be far more comfortable. Our Reserve grade had a convincing win without Darrell Collins, Terry Bennett and Steve Best. We expect to have these players in the second semi-final and at full strength, we also expect to do well in the run to the flag. What a remarkable effort put up by the young Under 19's - they set out to propel Marty O'Donnell to the top of the goal kicking and he finished with 18 for the match.
