Accuracy in front of goal kept the Demons in the contest with only nine points separating the two sides at half time, however as the rain came straight after the main break the match turned into a scrap as Bentleigh slowly lost contact with Clayton.
The forward line functioned well with Morrison brothers accurate in front of goal, while Dean ‘Pup’ Crozier played his best game for the club.
