Zander Nash and Justin Lawton were working hard on the ball, while Rory Knight was strong in defence.

Lucy Simpson was consistent and Sarah Wettenhall was competitive and played well in the ruck.

Up forward the Demons made the most of their limited opportunities with Deagan Purcell kicking a great goal.

He was also involved in the second goal with a great pass to Oliver Knight who kicked truly.

While Jerilderie played with great teamwork, they couldn’t contain Strathmerton who had a comfortable win.

Goals: D Purcell, O Knight. Best: Z Nash, R Knight, L Simpson, S Wettenhall, D Purcell, O Knight.

The Demons started the game full of run with Tom Murphy and Brodie Newton in every contest.

The backline was under pressure all day and was ably led by Lachie Watson, Troy Mauger and Cadman Ham. Thirds players Tyson Conn and Fraser Pinnuck had great games with plenty of run and carry, Steve Marshall was ever reliable and in everything, and Harrison Bradford had his best game for the season.

In the end a lack of numbers with only 17 on the ground proved too much to overcome.

Goals: T Murphy, T Conn. Best: T Mauger, H Bradford, L Watson, S Marshall, B Newton, M Smith.
