De­mons take vic­tory in low-scor­ing tigers game

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER SPORT - David Charlesworth

WA­ROONA had their re­venge on their first round vic­tors Pin­jarra in a tough night match on Satur­day.

In a home game, the De­mons faced off against the tigers who sat above them on the lad­der go­ing into the match.

It started off fairly even in round one with both sides tak­ing a goal and the De­mons only three points ahead.

Then in round two the De­mons kicked three goals to Pin­jarra’s none.

The De­mons main­tained their dom­i­nance, de­spite only tak­ing three goals in the third quar­ter and two in the fourth, with Pin­jarra only kick­ing their sec­ond goal in the fi­nal quar­ter.

Wa­roona 8.11 (59) de­feated Pin­jarra 2.11 (23).

League coach Dean Tay­lor said it was a tough match but Wa­roona proved tougher.

“We had more blokes who were will­ing to put their head over the ball and we were hunt­ing the ball more than they did,” he said.

Mr Tay­lor said An­drew Leroy and Mitchell Daw­son were the top play­ers in the match with the en­tire de­fen­sive line also per­form­ing well.

“The en­tire back line was rock solid,” he said.

In the next round, the De­mons face Man­durah who sit in a sim­i­lar po­si­tion with four wins and two losses early in the sea­son.

Mr Tay­lor said it would be a tough match as Man­durah had also beat Pin­jarra by three goals.

“That’s go­ing to be a tough game,” he said.

In the re­serves, Wa­roona 11.3 (69) de­feated Pin­jarra 8.16 (64).

In the colts, Pin­jarra 25.13 (163) de­feated Wa­roona 4.1 (25).
