The A reserve side fell to a nine-goal defeat to start their season.

Collingullie were dominant in the B grade encounter as they came away with a 45-16 win.
It was a tight encounter in the C grade season opener. There was little to separate the two sides as the final whistle blew it was Demons who came away with a 27-25 victory. The under 17s fell to a narrow 37-29 loss.
The Swans will look to bounce back when they return home to take on Turvey Park after the Easter break.
