Victory soured by Bennell injury

Peel Thunder have won a hard fought crucial victory over the Perth Demons by 42-points.

Souring the victory was an injury to Harley Bennell who limped from the ground during the first quarter and according to reports has sustained another calf injury.

Dockers Next Gen Academy player Jason Carter also came from the field in the last quarter of the match but relieved to be only suffering a cork.

Hayden Ballantyne and Blair Bell both booted two goals for Peel while Bailey Banfield led the way as the leading possession getter collecting 32-touches. 

The Thunder remain just outside the top five on 16-points and a game behind West Perth who are in fifth on 20-points.
