Crestani pulled down a screamer in the Bulldogs forward line and he kicked his fourth goal for the match, but that was the last real highlight for Strathy.
Purcell kick-started the Demons’ fight-back when he took a strong mark about 45m out from goal.
The 34 year-old kicked truly for his one and only major of the match, while not long later, Pearce medallist Josh Evans missed an easy chance from about 10m out trying out a snap at goal and hitting the post.
A long-running goal from Dylan May and a set shot from Bryce put the Demons just four points behind, but Strathmerton was able to goal again.
Jerilderie onballer Chris Marshall kept the game of goal-for-goal going with an easy set shot and his team was down by just three points.
A booming kick out of the centre towards Jerilderie’s goals saw Bryce respond by taking the form of Gary Ablett Snr and bowling through a pack of Strathmerton players, while Marshall scooped up the ball and goaled to put his side in front for the first time in three quarters.
The last quarter saw the game open right up with the Demons piling on seven goals to Strathmerton’s one.
Bryce capped off a brilliant game with a last-quarter goal, while backman Jimmy McRae put the icing on the cake with a goal on the siren.
