TEN ON END by KC from Casey

Recommended Posts

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.
