After suffering their first loss of the season a week earlier the Demons came up against a young, rebuilding Bulldogs team and got their season back on track with a comfortable victory.

Footscray put in periods of good play, but they were no match for their more experienced opponents who opened up a matchwinning lead by half-time and further extended it in the second half.

Adams, Ridley and Laidlaw were best.
