WODONGA Lady Wolves coach Doug Polmear believes his team’s depth proved telling in its 67-35 victory against Wangaratta’s Lady Warriors in the Country Basketball League at Wangaratta on Saturday night.
After scoring the first 10 points of the match, the Lady Wolves refused to look back with Tahnee Cannan, Stacey de Koeyer and Sarah Mellington dominant for the victors.
“We are playing our best basketball so far this year,” Polmear said.
“Our scoring options are improving.
“We had five players scoring eight points or higher and this poses a difficult task for opposition teams to contain.
“We are getting stronger defensively as a team and we’ll build on that over the next few weeks.”
Wodonga led by 13 points at the first change before increasing the margin to 21 at half-time and 25 at the last change.
Cannan had an exceptional final quarter at both ends of the court with some outstanding steals.
Larissa Laverty top-scored for Wangaratta with 13 points.
In the men, Wodonga Wolves defeated the Warriors 68-54.
With head coach Mick Hickey unavailable, rookie assistant Matt Asquith had the task of guiding the Wolves to a win with Heath Ohlin (21), Kyle McMullan (13) and Jonathan Lindhe (12) doing the bulk of the damage.
The Wolves led by as much as 22 points early in the third term before Asquith threw his young talent on court with McMullan thriving on the opportunity.
Trev McLean also had his moments.
Wodonga travels to Deniliquin this weekend.
