The Casey Demons struggled for most of the day to shake off a resolute Coburg outfit on a bleak day at Casey Fields in what could best be described as a scrappy encounter. 
The Demons looked to be the better side in the opening quarter but they simply could not find the goals and, as often happens in these circumstances, it was the Lions who broke through for their first score - a goal at the 25 minute mark of the term and they went to a three point lead at quarter time. 
Casey looked slow and lethargic entering the second term and they conceded two goals to go to a 14 point deficit before Cam Pedersen scored their first goal midway through the quarter. The home team slowly fought back with goals to Aloysio Ferreira and a late one to Mitch King on half time to put them back in front. 
The slog continued in the second half with first Casey then Coburg holding the ascendancy until another late goal gave the home side the lead. After that it all turned around with Casey playing sensational football to boot seven of the eight final quarter goals. They dominated the end game and by the time it was over they had doubled  the Lions' score. 
The Lions were courageous and bold but  the Demons were fitter and faster and had the dominant tall forward on the ground, namely Sam Weideman who thrust his name before the faces of the Melbourne selectors who are searching for a replacement for the injured Jesse Hogan. Best of the on ballers was recently uplifted rookie Corey Maynard while Angus Brayshaw is not putting a foot wrong after returning from his concussion issues.
The Demons are seventh on the ladder and must win against Sandringham this Sunday to keep the premiership dream alive.

The Development League team remains on track to compete in the last season of this competition. It had 31 scoring shots to 12 but Coburg's accuracy only gave them a 39 point win for all of their dominance.
