Against a Bulldogs side suffering from a lack of height David Neitz took advantage by booting four goals in the opening term to give his side a 29 point break.

With no big forwards at the other end the Bulldogs could never get much closer than that. Nathan Brown booted three goals for them, but Daniel Bandy was comfortably beaten by Clint Bizzell. Simon Godfrey also blanketed the dangerous Giansiracusa in the first half before Gia kicked three goals in the third term.

The margin stretched to 40 points at three-quarter time, before the Demons added the last two of the final term to make the result comfortable.

Best were Bizzell, Neitz and Godfrey. Steven Armstrong hurt his shoulder.
