The Demons continued their mid-season revival with a first win at league headquarters for the season. Bulldog coach Bob Rose accused his side of overconfidence, but they were beaten in the air all day at either end of the ground and with Dog captain Garry Dempsey out of sorts his side couldn't kick a winning score.

Three goals in the first six minutes set the Demons on their way, but despite the win they remained two games outside the five.

Best were Wells, Sullivan and Hardeman. Keenan (knee) was replaced by Letcher during the third quarter and Sullivan (thigh) by McSperrin in the final term.
