Demons salvage some pride
PERTH and Swan Districts had little to play for at Bassendean Oval aside from pride and attempting to give some belief to take into pre-season that they can bounce back to being finals contenders in 2017.
In the end, the Demons dominated Swans from the outset for the third time this season to end up winning by 50 points, setting up the victory with 10 goals to one in the first half.
Perth’s midfield completely dominated in remarkable fashion with Clint Jones leading the way with another 47 possessions and 11 marks.
Aidan Tropiano also racked up 41 disposals, Liam McKenna 30, Michael Sinclair 26, Matthew Taylor 24, Ashley Boyes 23 and Julian Jacobs 23.
Spencer White kicked five goals for the Demons from seven kicks with Marshall Jones adding three majors and Dene White two.
Justin Simpson kicked two goals for Swan Districts while Jesse Turner racked up 34 possessions, Adam Faulkner 26, Rudy Riddoch 24, Matthew Rogers 22, Brandon Erceg 21, Laurence Grescos 20 and Jackson Slater 20.
In the Reserves, Perth 7.11 (53) lost to Swan Districts 9.15 (69) and in the Colts the Demons again lost to the Swans, going down 2.15 (27) to 6.3 (39).
