Avenel dispose of Longwood in fine style.CHALPAT SONTI April 30, 2014 3:32am
It seemed like an ambush was on the cards when Longwood named a host of imports from the Top End to take on Avenel on Saturday, but it was the Swans who got a jump on their neighbours.
Up against a line-up including Norm Smith Medallist Byron Pickett and several Tiwi Islanders, Avenel responded in the best way possible, taking the battle to the hosts early and running away with a 50-point victory.
By the time the smoke cleared, the Swans had the game in the bag and used much of the second half to try a few things. And it was an Avenel side missing gun midfielder Don Stirling with a wrist injury and having dropped ruckman Ben Doddridge for missing training also lost his replacement Tyler Peacock through work commitments.
