Lions take pole position in contest
Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault forwards Kale Triplett and Luke Slater collide while contesting a mark. The Lions defeated Donnybrook by two points in a thriller at Brunswick Oval on Saturday night.
WAROONA defeated Mandurah by 15 points at Rushton Park on Saturday despite kicking a wasteful 21 behinds.
The Demons started off slowly in the first quarter and Mandurah got off to a flier with four goals.
In the second, the Demons matched their opponent’s three goals.
After half-time, the Demons came back even stronger, kicking five goals to Mandurah’s two.
In the last quarter both teams were locked on 10 goals, but the Demons took the points courtesy of their 21 behinds.
Waroona 10.21 (81) defeated Mandurah 10.6 (66).
League coach Dean Taylor said while the Demons were in control of the ground, he rued wasted opportunities in front of goal.
“From quarter time we were all over them but were inaccurate in front of goal,” he said.
“We beat them through the midfield, and the backs were very good, but we were wasteful in front of goal.”
Taylor said while performancewise the team was working hard, the side needed to work on polishing their skills.
“We were working hard enough we’re just not polished enough,” he said.
Taylor applauded the contributions of Courtney Lakay and Lance Lucas who both performed well in the match.
This week the Demons face off against Baldivis who sit just below them at fifth on the ladder.
Taylor said with Baldivis’ performance in their last four games, it was going to be a tough match.
In the reserves, Mandurah 10.7 (67) defeated Waroona 7.9 (51).
In the colts, Mandurah 20.14 (134) defeated Waroona 1.4 (10).
