WAROONA Demons suf­fered a heart­break­ing de­feat to Bal­divis in the Peel Foot­ball League, los­ing by just one point on Satur­day.

The Demons faced off against Bal­divis in an away match fight­ing hard, but los­ing 15.10 (100) to 15.9 (99).

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

“The sec­ond quar­ter cost us, they out scored us by five goals,” he said. “Pretty dis­ap­point­ing re­ally. “You could see they wanted the ball more and were do­ing more to get it.”

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.

In the re­serves, Bal­divis 18.11 (119) de­feated Waroona 1.4 (10).

In the colts, Bal­divis 22.7 (139) de­feated Waroona 2.1 (13).
