The Tigers took more than a half to shake the Devils, leading by 23 points at the main break.
However, they were too strong for an inaccurate Corio in the second half, piling on 14-goals-to-five.
Brendan Wall was best of 12 individual goal kickers for Thomson with four, while Chris Scott contributed three.
Playing co-coach Reece Holwell again led from the front, while Fletcher Banfield and second-game Noah Scott also impressed.
Devils coach Brett Nolan came out of retirement and kicked three goals, while David Valys managed two.
Skipper Ryan Robertson was again among Corio’s best, along with former skipper Corey Collins.
Thomson 4.4, 8.8, 14.9, 22.13 (145)
