Swans take big step towards finals with win over Lancaster.CHALPAT SONTI June 25, 2014 3:33am
It was the win Avenel had to have — and the Swans delivered.
Avenel took a huge step towards finally playing finals footy again when it beat Lancaster by 26 points on Saturday. The win puts the Swans two games clear of the Wombats, but with a tough road ahead, no-one is taking anything for granted.
The most pleasing aspect of the win was the way Avenel ran out the game, the reverse of how it started the season. Then fourth-quarter fadeouts were normal, but the players responded to coach Cameron Gillett’s three quarter time address on Saturday.
‘‘I just told the guys we really need to stand up and win this by four or five goals and that’s what they did,’’ Gillett said.
