GRIFFITH Swans unseated the undefeated Leeton side at the weekend 59 to 54. 

Swans won a tight first quarter 18-15, with some great shooting by Anna Korovata and Chloe Larkin, with both of them only missing one goal a piece in the first quarter. 

The Crows edged out the Swans in the second quarter, with 15 goals to 13, to close within one point for a 31-30 half-time score.

The mid-court of Danni Chambers was kept busy in the third quarter, as was Tennille Scott in wing defence, both of whom had a great game moving the ball up the court. 

Maddy Testoni played well in wing attack by feeding the ball accurately into the shooters. 

At the end of the third quarter there was still only one goal splitting the Swans on 42 and the Crows on 41. 

A very exciting third quarter started with both teams giving it all they had. 

Zoe Whitworth in goal defence rattled the goal attack and took some great intercepts and rebounds. 

Anneka Dodd played one of her best games in defence, making it hard for the goal shooter to get the ball. 

Korovata was named players’ player and the whole team received the coach and bistro awards for a superb team effort.

****

THE A-Reserve side wasn’t as slick against a well-oiled Leeton outfit at the weekend. 

Swans’ shooting was just above 50 per cent, part of the game that needs to improve. 

Nicola Robinson and Tameka Scott were kept busy in defence from start to finish. 

Scott received the players’ player award and also the bistro award for her efforts. 

Maddy Robinson played at wing defence and had a strong defensive game, earning her the coach’s award.
