NARRANDERA enjoyed their first win of the season with a surprise 57-point belting of Collingullie-Glenfield Park on Sunday.
A seven-goal opening term laid the platform for Narrandera, who bounced back from a couple of big losses to down the Demons, 19.8 (122) to 9.11 (65) at Narrandera Sportsground.
Jordan Hedington got his first win as Narrandera coach as the Eagles piled on 17 goals to three in the opening three quarters. Only a six goal final term from the visitors added some respectability to the scoreline.
"We started well and we said at half-time we didn't want to let it slip and we came out strong and kicked a couple of goals and really ran it into the ground," Hedington said.
"We also upped our pressure and just asked for a response after last week and we got that, which I was really pleased to see."
Hedington said the inclusions of Rob Tuohey and Ryan Price added some much-needed size and maturity to the Eagles' line-up.
Tom Van Buuren, Joe Grinter and Brad Hutchison were all among those to impress for Narrandera in the win.

After a 121-point loss to Turvey Park last week, Hedington said the win was exactly what the club needed.
"The boys are definitely up and about and there's a lot of smiles around," he said.
"The confidence is through the roof, seeing what we can do after a couple of hard weeks, especially for the young fellas.
"Credit to our group, we could have gone into our shells and made it hard for ourselves but we knuckled down at training during the week and turned it on today, which was really nice."
The Eagles got through unscathed and will now eye back-to-back victories when they take on Leeton-Whitton next weekend.
