Jerilderie juggernaut Aaron Purcell netted an incredible 18 goals on Saturday as the Demons demolished the Deni Rovers by 223 points.
The game, which was played at Memorial Park in Deniliquin, highlighted what a strong and even side the Dees possess in their quest for a third straight premiership.
Final score: Jerilderie 34.27 (231) def. Deni Rovers 1.2 (8).
Midfielder Andrew May played a brilliant game and Chris Lockhart also contributed well.
Young legs in Blair Henery and Lachie Leeds kept the game moving very quickly and in the third quarter, even though the Demons seemed to struggle a bit, they were still able to slam home eight goals.
The final term was dominated by skipper Purcell, who has taken his season tally to 30 from four games.
Jak Payne also fired around goals, slotting six, while Josh Hillary and May kicked two each.
Jerilderie’s reserves had another great game, winning 20.16 (136) to 1.3 (9), with Dougal Morrison (four goals) playing well and Greg Lawton dominating around the goals to finish with 12 majors.
Ben Nash continued his great form and the assistance of some young players in Jacob Read and Harrison Curtin helped the team to play the game out.
The best players were Lawton, Brodie Newton, Morrison, Tom Murphy, Lachlan Watson and Stephen Marshall.
In the thirds, a seven-goal first quarter set the Demons up for a good 15.15 (105) to 1.1 (7) win.
A great second quarter by Lachie Leeds, James Gregory, Caleb Catena and Jacob Read continued the flow and with a tight and consistent third quarter the lead was unbeatable.
Joe Catena had a great game, as did Zac Barlow and Bohdi Beasley coming up from the fourths.
Nick Parker (three goals) was Jerilderie’s best player, while Harrison Curtin booted five majors for the game.
Jerilderie’s fourths, although smaller than their opposition, put up a great fight in a 12.8 (80) to 2.2 (14) loss to the ladder-leaders.
Ben Browning, Ben Neessen, Mitch Avard and Zac Barlow all pushed hard, while Nick Baldwin, Josh Rochford and Fraser Pinnuck were all over the forwards and showed some strong play.
Bohdi Beasley played another good game, while Jayden Catena held his ground down forward and kicked both of the Dees’ goals.
Deni was too good on the day but Jerilderie’s players showed they can play four quarters and didn’t give up.
