THRASHED: West Whyalla romped to another massive win on the weekend, defeating South Whyalla by 98 points.

West Whyalla demoralised South Whyalla with a 10-goal to nothing first half to set up a 98-point victory at Bennett Oval on Sunday afternoon.

Right from the first bounce the Dragons controlled proceedings, their ball use out of the centre square was sublime making a complete mockery of the condition.

Dylan Everett, Chad McLean, Brannen Everett and Ben Butler all hit the scoreboard making the most of the precision delivery from further up the field giving the Dragons a 41-point lead at quarter time.

Dylan Everett and Lee Haseldine were both having superb first halves as the Dragons continued their total dominance of an uninterested Demon outfit to extend their lead to 66 points at the main break.

You have to feel sorry for Demon midfielder Dave Cleary who has played his heart out all season without much help, once again he was leading the Demon charge and to their credit they started to show a bit of fight, something that was badly missing in the first half.

Dan Schilling booted the the Dees first goal, Liam Edgecumbe was clearly getting under Brannen Everett's skin much to his dislike and even now the margin was extended to 78 points it was a much improved effort by the red-and-blues.

The last quarter was another competitive term by the Dees but the horse a had well and truly bolted by then with the Dragons easing up on the pedal to secure another easy victory.

Lee Haseldine was for me best afield, he's a big bloke for a wingman, but has a humongous tank and he ran his more slicker opponents off their feet. 

Dylan Everett was brilliant in the first half, although quieter in the second, he still found the ball with ease.

Shannon Winders went about his business without much fuss and racked up his usual 20 plus touches.

Blake Cleary is a very talented youngster who has impressed more weeks than not as has fellow youngster Damien Coyne who again played a quality game

Dave Cleary once again was the Demon standout, when the chips are down you can rely on this bloke to be winning his fair share of the footy. 

Henry Shae, when moved into the midfield, was a big reason for the Demons’ good second half.

Liam Edgecumbe limited Brannen Everett's input on the game and Freak Phillips battled manfully in the ruck.
