Tullamarine suffered a second straight loss in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association division 1 west Peter Howarth Shield.

Facing Deer Park, the Demons needed to bat well to chase down the 212 set for them on day one.

The Demons got off to a poor start in their run chase, losing an early wicket.

When they lost four wickets in quick succession, the side was in trouble at 5-48.

Buddy Mendis and David Zahorodni set about rescuing the innings and put on nearly a 100 run partnership.

When both went within two runs of each other, it set the Demons back.

While they continued to push on, the loss of wickets hurt as they were bowled for 192.

Zahorodni top scored with 61.

In division 1 north, Westmeadows stood up with the bat to claim victory against St Francis de Sales on Saturday.

Needing 267 for victory, the Warriors were going to need a few batsmen to stand up and make runs.

From there it was all downhill, losing 6-19 to be all out for 99.
