Moama left deflated after Saturday
Moama coach Simon Maddox was a disappointed figure after his side’s 27-point loss, saying his players were left deflated after coming into the game thinking they were a good chance to win.
‘‘All in all they (Tongala) were probably just a little bit better in all facets of the game,’’ he said.
‘‘We had plenty of chances and far more turnovers than them.
‘‘They were probably a little bit cleaner and little more precise.’’
Maddox said his side’s effort to fight out the match was a positive, but sighted his team’s inability to find any fluency in the game a major factor in the loss.
‘‘It was the same old story. We probably didn’t have too many blokes playing four quarters of footy,’’ he said.
‘‘(Andrew) Reid and (Matt) Hughes were causing us a few issues up forward.
‘‘I think we had double the amount of turnovers, so that’s probably the game in a nutshell.’’
The coach was impressed with Clay Wright in his second match in the seniors, suggesting some of his teammates could take a leaf out of his book.
The Magpies head into the bye with only two wins for the season, with games against Cobram and Congupna to finish 2012.
