Scary incident sours Demons' first AFLW victory

Meg Downie was stretchered off the field after being KO'd by a high bump in the Melbourne Demons' AFLW victory over Collingwood.

The Demons scored an incredible 7.2.44 to 4.1.25 come-from-behind victory, holding their opponents scoreless in the second half for their maiden win.

Trailing 25-6 at the main break, the Dees kicked six second half goals to storm home.

However they will be counting the cost of the victory after the nasty incident with Downie.

The defender was contesting a high ball in the fourth quarter when she was hit in the face by a high bump from Sophie Casey.

She lay prone on the ground for a number minutes and was eventually stretchered off the field.

She was transferred to hospital but looked to be in good spirits.
