Collingullie-Glenfield Park's top three chances copped a near fatal blow after a blistering first quarter from Leeton-Whitton set up their 13.8 (86) to 10.8 (68) win at Crossroads Oval on Saturday.
Needing to win to keep pace with top three rival Wagga Tigers, the Demons are now a win plus percentage behind them with two rounds remaining.
The Crows kicked six goals to one in the opening term to set up the win, with each quarter very even from then on.
It continues a strong end to the year for Leeton-Whitton, who have now won three straight games.
Tyron Rainbird backed up his eight goal haul in last week's 45-point win over Turvey Park with another four majors.
