At half time it looked like the Demons were home with a 34 point lead, but just when they had their confidence up it all started to go horribly wrong. Alan Jeans tore his Saints side apart at half time and they came out in the third quarter like a new side.

From there the Saints ran out easy victors. Paul Callery was best on ground for the Saints in his first match against his old side and wrote a scathing article in The Age the next day describing his move to the Saints as the best thing he's ever done and describing the Demons' fade out as "typical" for them.

Best were Flower, Clennett and Baker.
