Lions take pole po­si­tion in con­test

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - SPORT -

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).
