League coach Dean Taylor said while the Demons fought for the ball, they squandered opportunities when they had it.
“We worked hard enough in the contest but when we got our hands on the ball we butchered it,” he said. “It went straight back to them. “If we’re not going to use it well, they’re going to run away with us.”
Next week, the Demons face off against Mandurah in an away game, at Rushton Park at 2:30pm, in their first clash this season.
“I expect us to bounce back,” Taylor said.
“They’re second last on the ladder so I expect us to get the win.”
