Mercury (Hobart)



It rounded out a remarkable turnaround where the Demons came from 44 points down to steal top spot.

The match will be sure to form part of the Cats’ preparatio­n for Friday, but Bews said the focus would mostly centre on what worked to get into such a commanding initial position.

“We look at the things we did well, which was for the majority of the game, and then look at the reasons why they got that run on and how we can arrest it if it goes like it did last game,” he said.

“I think we found on Friday against GWS that they put a few on early in the fourth quarter and we were able to respond and score ourselves, which was something we didn’t do against Melbourne.

“In that one we held them up momentaril­y and then they would have another flurry of goals and the gap got smaller and smaller.

“So it is a mixture of both but it is looking at how you can stop the momentum because it is a big thing in football these days.

“So, if you can limit how much damage the opposition does on the scoreboard when they do have the momentum, then it goes a long way to winning the game.”
