Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong made it two wins on the trot courtesy of a six-goal victory over Narrandera on Saturday.
The Lions’ new recruits all shone as Narrandera’s winless start to the season continued another week, going down 12.13 (85) to 7.7 (49) at Ganmain Sportsground.
GGGM kicked 4.8 in the opening quarter with the breeze but then most importantly were able to kick two goals to Narrandera’s three in the second term.
The Lions were very competitive both quarters against the breeze and GGGM coach Christin Macri said it played a big part in the final result.
“We worked pretty hard for it but played well enough to get the win,” Macri said.
“After last week it was really important that we back it up and we’ve done that so it’s good to go into a little break at two (wins) and two (losses).
“We started with the breeze and kicked 4.8 but it was more important that we stood up in the second quarter and we did that and it won us the game.”
Scott Proctor kicked two goals and was very good in his first game for the Lions.
Young brother, Aaron, was best-on-ground and continued his fine start to the year.
Josh Bubnich made a big impact in his first game back from suspension, while Jacob Olsson and Jesse Lander were also very good.
In bad news for GGGM and Riverina League, Ben Walsh injured his quad and will be unavailable for the representative game this weekend. He will also be in doubt for the following week against Collingullie-Glenfield Park.
For Narrandera, Josh Bennett returned from injury and bagged five goals, while Jack Grintell and Jarred Lane played well.
