The Casey Demons made it ten wins on end and secured a stranglehold on a top two placing and home finals with a magnificent come-from-behind victory over Geelong VFL at GMHBA Stadium. The Cats had led the game from the seven-minute mark of the opening quarter and led by as much as 28 points during the third term. The Demons managed a solitary goal in the opening half and by the final break they had managed only three goals. They started the last quarter with a flourish and managed to bring up their next three goals to Jay Lockhart, Sam Weideman (his second for the day), Cory Machaya in less than ten minutes to draw to within three points of the home side. Casey had been subdued for much of the game and playing to a losing ruck in the absence of Mitch King so for most of the game they were being beaten badly at the stoppages but suddenly they had come back to life. Cam Pedersen was the team’s lifeblood. The Cats were not to be denied and they scored their only goal for the quarter but the Demons responded through Pat McKenna, his first since joining the club in a trade with GWS Giants. There followed a long period of wrestling back and forth without a score until Mitch Gent’s goal gave them the lead with two minutes left on the clock for the first time since early in the first quarter. Apart from Pedersen, the hero for the club was James Munro who played a solid four quarter game. Lockhart and Cory Wagner were consistent on the day and youngsters Cory Stockdale was impressive in the second half. Declan Keilty was strong in defence while Tim Smith worked hard all day and even had a stint in the ruck when the team was struggling in the mid part of the game. The Demons have a this week and look poised to continue their strong run to the finals with hopefully a few players returning over the next fortnight.

The Casey Demons were literally blown off the park in the space of a few minutes on either side of the half time break against Geelong VFL at Simonds Stadium on Saturday afternoon and ultimately lost the game by six goals. The Demons were opposed to a stronger, taller and far more experienced Cats outfit and were always going to be up against it, especially after they lost back up ruckman Declan Keilty who was concussed in the very early stages of the game. This left youngster Mitch King, in only his second game back after a knee reconstruction and a further injury which cut deeply into his pre season as the team's only true big man on the ground following the club's rash of injuries. King battled manfully but had to cope with a number of talls in the home team's lineup which included the seasoned Rhys Stanley who also drifted forward to boot three goals for the game. Casey was restricted to just 11 AFL listers including rookies and had a bevy of VFL youngsters in the team. The game also marked the debuts of Frankston Dolphins player Nathan Gardiner and 27 year old on baller Sean Dwyer from Lang Lang. Casey was more than competitive in a four low-scoring struggle despite the Geelong's edge in experience in the first half and led by 8 points late in the second term. The Cats struck them a major blow with two goals in the the last two minutes including one on the siren and then opened the second half strongly booting three unanswered goals in the first 10 minutes to skip away to a 20 point lead. The teams went goal for goal to three quarter time. Casey vice-captain Angus Scott was the saviour again with a couple of goals as the depleted Demon forward line struggled to impact the scoreboard. Scott was his team's only goal scorer in the final term as a stronger and faster Geelong raced away to a six goal victory. The visitors were once again well served by Jack Trengove (27 touches) who was particularly instrumental in his team's strong showing early in the game. Defender Josh Wagner who has had an injury riddled past couple of months returned in good form in defence and Dean Kent had a much better game this week. Experienced Casey listed players Mitch Gent, James Munro lent valuable support to team leaders Jack Hutchins and the goalkicker in Scott but overall the home side was too good finishing with 10 goals to Casey’s four in the second half. Although the team is only outside the top eight on percentage, it will struggle to keep in touch as long as Melbourne's injury woes continue. This week's opposition Werribee also has just one win to its credit but poses another tough assignment at Hoppers Crossing on Sunday.
