West Coast win by 94 points
Michael Evans (6th game)
After a record loss against Essendon a week earlier the Demons, and coach Mark Neeld had been under the media spotlight all week. The Deons took a surprise lead in the second quarter, and were just 10 points down at half time before the Eagles took over and ran riot with 11 goals to one in the third.
The pace slowed in the last quarter, but the Eagles still almost racked up a triple digit win - and their largest ever win over the Demons at the MCG.
Best were N. Jones, Sylvia and M. Jones. Rohan Bail was temporarily substitutes replaced by Jimmy Toumpas in the second quarter while he was assessed for a possible concussion. He returned in the third quarter and played out the rest of the game, Toumpas eventually replaced Aaron Davey at the start of the last term.
