WAROONA faced off against tough con­tender South Man­durah on Satur­day, los­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and the match.

South Man­durah took the lead in the first quar­ter kick­ing two goals to the Demons’ one.

The Demons didn’t come back with an­other goal un­til the third quar­ter kick­ing three more goals but by which time South Man­durah had eight.

South Man­durah held off the Demons to fin­ish the match kick­ing five more goals to Waroona’s zero.

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.”

Waroona now sit tied at num­ber three on the lad­der with Bal­divis and Pin­jarra, with South Man­durah in num­ber two spot and Cen­trals at the top.
