The Demons' demolition of Yarroweyah on Saturday took second seat as Shaun Bryce booted a massive 12 goals.May 7, 2014 3:50am
Jerilderie forward Shaun Bryce slammed home 12 goals to help the Demons smash Yarroweyah by 72 points in a high-scoring match on Saturday.
Bryce’s efforts showed Jerilderie’s adaptability when Aaron Purcell isn’t hitting the scorebaord, with the young gun too hard for any Yarroweyah player to match up on.
The win was the reigning premier’s fourth for the season and its eighth in a row since round 17 last year.
Final score: Jerilderie 21.17 (143) def. Yarroweyah 11.5 (71).
Despite the one-sided scoreline it was a hard-fought first term for the Dees, but Bryce was still able to kick four goals before quarter-time.
The Hoppers fought back in the second quarter but were only able to put two goals on the scoreboard.
Brad Parker dominated the ruck for Jerilderie, with Blair Henery, Jak Payne, Dylan May and Chris Lockhart having plenty of the ball in the third.
Nick Keating and Andrew May (two goals) were unstoppable throughout the game, and were named among the best alongside Bryce, Lockhart, Payne and young Lachlan Westwood.
In the reserves, Jerilderie punished an undermanned Yarroweyah side, 13.18 (96) to Yarroweyah 1.0 (6).
The ball was in Jerilderie’s forward line most of the game and Stephen Marshall was able to get on the end of a few bombs to finish with four goals for the game.
The return of Jack Williams was a good one with the Demon racking up 10 touches in the first quarter.
Other good players were Josh Evans, Chris May, Greg Lawton (six goals), Luke Keating and Tom Murphy.
The Dees thirds had a good first quarter in slippery conditions, which eventually led to a 76-point win.
Jer 13,13 - 91 def Yarr 2,3 - 15
Harrison Curtin kicked three goals in the opening term, and finished with six for the match, while Jacob Read was on top in the ruck in the second quarter.
Ben Barlow worked hard in the backline and in the third quarter the drizzling rain was challenging for both sides.
The Demons were able to run out the game quite easily though, with a 13.13 (91) to 2.3 (15) scoreline and Nick Parker (two goals), James Gregory, Caleb Catena and Tom Moloney solid as usual.
The fourths were the ones who started the day off on a winning note, beating Yarroweyah 4.10 (34) to 2.2 (14).
In cold and wet conditions the young Dees tried hard with plenty of tackles, led by Mitch A’Vard, while Zac Barlow was everywhere and Andrew Neessen showed some great form.
Bohdi Beasley was great, stepping up to spend some time in the ruck, and Tyson Conn and Lachie Kennett worked hard all day.
Nick Baldwin finished with two goals for the day.
