With Casey Demons undefeated this year and 12 points ahead of second spot, it was always going to be a challenge.

Collingwood did not have the start they needed, conceding six goals to zero in the first. 

Callum Brown and Lachlan Tardrew were the major ball winners with 30 and 27 disposals respectively.

Brown also kept the pressure up all game with 12 tackles. 

Isaac Chugg had an impressive game, taking an unbelievable grab that was the highlight for the day.

First gamer for the Pies Josh Carmichael had a brilliant debut. With 23 disposals and 10 tackles, he was solid across the ground in his ball use and pressure. 

Also debuting for the Pies were ruckman Tom Roberts from the Dandenong Stingrays and small forward from the Oakleigh Chargers Riley Voulanas. 

Both debutants kicking a goal each played their roles well in tough conditions. 

Matt Wetering added two goals this week to his impressive five goal haul last week.

Collingwood have another bye this weekend and will recoup for their round 15 clash against the Tigers.
