A Kade Chandler inspired Casey Demons outfit has surged away to its 13th win on the bounce.
The former AFL-listed Dee collected 29 disposals and converted a stupendous five majors, as Casey poured on eight goals in the final term to register the 16.11 (119) to 8.13 (61) victory over Port Melbourne.
It didn’t come easy for the Dees, who conceded five of the first seven majors of the match.
After an uncharacteristic first term, the Dees slaughtered the Borough around the ball…in turn relaying it to the scoreboard – kicking 16 goals to three after the quarter-time break.
Corey Ellison was a rock in defence, while Jimmy Munro completed another typical Munro performance, gathering 18 disposals, kicking a major and applying 13 tackles.
As second-placed Southport had the bye, the Demons are currently three wins ahead of the Sharks.
Frankston, meanwhile, grabbed its fifth win of the season in a dazzling display against Geelong.
At no stage in the match did the Dolphins appear challenged, winning the first three quarters in convincing fashion on their way to an 18.10 (118) to 8.14 (62) triumph.
The umpires will have their hands full when deciding the votes, as Trent Mynott’s five majors and Taylin Duman’s 42 disposal were hard to disperse.
The Dolphins travel to Gold Coast this weekend to take on the Suns, while the Demons will head down the highway to face Geelong.
