Wolves hungry to beat the best

WODONGA’S Lady Wolves will be out to claim another scalp when they take on ladder leader Wangaratta in Country Basketball League action at Wangaratta tonight.

The Lady Wolves are coming off a good win against Seymour two weeks ago after a sensational third quarter with coach Doug Polmear confident of another big performance.

“We will need to apply that same level of pressure for the whole four quarters on Saturday night if we are to come away with the win,” Polmear said.

“The girls will need to build on their offensive pressure to cause cracks in the Wang defence and then back it up at the defensive end.

“There will be no time to ease off.

“The Lady Warriors are a very well organised team and have reasonable depth on the bench.

“They will play hard for the full game and take the ball up to us at every opportunity.”

Wangaratta’s Larissa Laverty shapes as a key for the home team.

Wodonga Wolves and Wangaratta Warriors also look set for a thriller in the men.

The Wolves are sitting one point behind the Warriors on the premiership table and both sides will be out to prove their worthiness of contesting for championship honours.

Coach Michael Hickey will rely on his experienced players to lead the way, with Heath Ohlin and Patrick Gleeson expected to provide options up front.
