Coach Dean Taylor said the Demons played a great game apart from the second quarter when Baldivis kicked five more goals than the visitors.

Taylor said the Demons fought back in the second half.
“The second half was pretty high quality round of football, a good performance from both sides,” he said.
The final quarter was a tough contest, but Baldivis got the onepoint edge to win the match.
Taylor said Rhett Mason, Brayden Sutler and David Butler were best players.
“They got their hands on the ball and they didn’t shirk when it was their time to go,” he said.
This week, the Demons will face Mandurah in a home game on Saturday from 2.30pm.
Taylor said he was confident going into the match despite their close loss to Baldivis.
“Its a game we should win at home,” he said.
