Avenel warms up for crunch game in fine style.CHALPAT SONTI August 6, 2014 3:22am
As crunch games go, they won’t come much bigger for Avenel than this Saturday at Murchison, but the Swans ensured they would go into the clash in good form with a big win.
Avenel beat neighbours Longwood by 17 goals in a one-sided affair on Saturday, in a game largely free of incident, as opposed to the first round clash this year.
With Cael McCarthy nursing an ankle injury, the Swans made a few changes, with Mick Dundon going to centre half forward and Paul Arandt to full forward.
Those changes took a quarter to bed in but after the first break there was only one team in it. Arandt kicked five goals straight in the first half (and six behinds in the second) and was the standout, while the Redlegs found it impossible to match up on Michael Morgan, who ran riot in the midfield.
