In the finals race up to their necks North laboured to a tedious victory against a massively overmatched Demon side who were playing for nothing more than the chance to avoid the wooden spoon.

Starting the last quarter 53 points ahead North, and some curious umpiring, let the Demons kick four token goals in the first 13 minutes of the last quarter to make the game slightly interesting before the Roos hit back and extended the margin back to nearly what it had been at the first bounce of the term.

Future Demon Brent Crosswell was the one lively spot on the day, kicking five goals and brawling with Adrian Dullard and Laurie Fowler.

Best were Flower, Dullard and Sullivan
