  1. The Casey Demons made an emphatic statement in winning their VFL Wildcard Match by 101 points over North Melbourne at Casey Fields on Sunday. The victory however, did not come at a cost as the team lost its most prolific ball getter in Luke Dunstan who limped from the ground before half time with what appeared to be a serious knee injury. Dunstan had been the star up to that point, having amassed 17 disposals and looking set for another day of monster numbers for the Demons. In the early stages of the game North Melbourne were competitive with both sides going goal-for-goal for almost 20 minutes. By that time the Kangaroos’ key forward Tyler Sellers had taken full advantage of the absence of Adam Tomlinson and Daniel Turner from the Casey line up with three goals to lead by a point. Tom McDonald was marking everything and Brodie Grundy was strong in the ruck, the former Magpie having brilliantly plucked the ball out of a ruck contest in the goal square for a major. The Demons then took matters into their own hands and hit their opponents like a ton of bricks. In a short space of time, they took over with goals to skipper Mitch White and two more to Tom McDonald which made it three for the term for the sticky-fingered key forward. In the blink of an eye, Casey had skipped away to an 18-point lead at the first break and worse was to come for the Kangaroos. It was always going to be hard going for the visitors who had a depleted list with only six AFL-listers, less than half of the reigning premiers who continued their dominance with a four goals to one second term. They didn’t let up after half time either. The vacancy filled by Dunstan’s injury was well covered by James Jordon who was prolific with 36 disposals, 7 tackles and a couple of goals for a day’s hard work. By the last change the home team had regained control in its fortress after a couple of narrow losses there. McDonald and Andy Moniz-Wakefield were having field days and had scored five goals each and Casey led by 67 points having kept their hapless opponent scoreless for the quarter. The procession continued into the final stanza with Casey stretching the lead to just over the ton and McDonald finishing with five goals two behinds in a 17 disposal, nine mark performance which left North’s defence in tatters. Grundy was dominant all around the ground ending the game with 33 touches and 18 hit outs and ten clearances to go with his three goals for the day. His second in command in the ruck Will Verrall continued the impressive start to his career but what could be better for a young ruckman learning the craft at a club under Grundy and Gawn? The Casey effort gained great support from the busy James Harmes and Charlie Spargo (24 and 17 touches respectively) while the experience of James Munro and White was valuable throughout. The Demons move on to an elimination final against Footscray next weekend at a time and venue to be announced.
