Roos retain edge over Swans

NORTH Coffs continued their domination over their cross-town rivals Coffs Swans with an impressive 95-point victory at Fitzroy Oval.

The Kangaroos always had the edge and were well served at full-forward by Ben Sykes, who kicked 10 goals. The Swans were powerless to stop the big recruit, while centre half-forward Ryan Turner acted as the perfect foil with four goals.

A three-goal first-quarter deficit was the closest the Swans got in the contest.

North Coffs were superior in all areas of the ground with Greg Jarman and Tom Campbell leading a strong midfield performance. The Swans were powerless and were found out in terms of depth. Despite the best efforts of Peter Robinson and Ben Miller, there were too many passengers for what was a big home game for the club.

The win helps North Coffs strengthen their hold of second and a double chance while the Swans will need to improve if they are to make any impression leading into the finals.
