Avenel triumphs in another 'must-win' game against Undera.CHALPAT SONTI July 9, 2014 3:21am
When it has been a long time since you’ve played finals, it seems there is no easy way of getting there.
That must be a thought going through the minds of Avenel players, coaches and supporters after winning a crunch game with Undera by 17 points on Saturday.
It should have made the Swans’ hold on a top six spot all the firmer, having beaten the rival immediately below it, but that wasn’t the case. Lancaster’s surprise win at Murchison left it also well and truly in the three-horse race for two spots.
But the Swans had to win regardless of other results, and they eventually got the upper hand against a tricky opponent.
Avenel didn’t get reward for effort in the first quarter, when it could easily have been up by four or five goals and seen the game take an easier turn. The Lions played what Swans coach Cameron Gillett called ‘‘a real Sydney Swans type of game’’.
