Luke Keating gets a handball away for Jerilderie's reserves.

Reserves: Jerilderie 13.9 (87) def. Yarroweyah 6.7 (43).

For the first time in weeks the Demons fielded a full side which made a big difference. The Demons started well with Ned Beasley (three goals) on fire in the first quarter with two goals early and Tom Murphy giving four quarters of solid footy.

Jerilderie relaxed a little in the second term but regrouped after half time to control the game.

Jordy Hawkins again presented as a focal point up forward, while Harrison Bradford repelled plenty of Yarroweyah forward thrusts. Bodhi Beasley picked up plenty of possessions for the Demons and Jade Buckley played his best game for the season.

Thirds: Jerilderie 37.19 (241) def. Yarroweyah no score.

Jerilderie came out firing with Jordy Anthony (14 goals) kicking his sixth goal in the first quarter to bring up 100 goals for the season. Nash Fitzgerald gave four quarters of quality football and John Lawton showed plenty of run and carry.

Glenn DiLullo dominated in the ruck, and in the backline Nick Baldwin, Josh Rochford and Zac Barlow repelled every Yarroweyah attacking play. Jack Hatty and Josh Ray both had great games and Max Roe made the most of his opportunities up forward.

Fourths: Jerilderie 7.6 (48) def. Yarroweyah 3.1 (19).

The young Demons had a slow start, not capitalising on forward line opportunities.

Alex A’Vard was providing options in his first game back and Zander Nash picked up plenty of possessions.

As the game went on, the Demons moved the ball well into the forward line with Nicola DiLullo tackling well resulting in a goal.

Brock Kocks played well, kicking three goals and his second efforts were outstanding. The backline was solid all day with Oliver Knight driving the ball forward and cousin Rory Knight having a best on ground performance at centre half back.
