WODONGA Wolves coach Troy Crawford has already put Saturday’s disappointing loss to Shepparton behind him.

Crawford said the Wolves needed to immediately focus on this week’s final round showdown with Seymour.

Wodonga’s chances of claiming home court advantage in the finals took a major hit on Saturday when it lost to Shepparton 61-49.

The Wolves were no match for the hosts, despite 20 points from Josh McKay.

Things don’t get any easier, with a trip to Seymour to meet the playoff-bound Blasters awaiting.

And that’s were Crawford’s attention lies.

“Seymour beat us at home last time and so we need to go there and play a lot better than we did last time,” he said.

“We’ve got a few things in place, strategically.

“We didn’t match Shepparton’s intensity on Saturday night and we need to raise the bar there and hopefully take that into the finals.”

The Lady Wolves, meanwhile, have made it 10 from 10 with yet another win on Saturday.

Tahnee Cannan (14 points), Rachel Jeffrey (12) and Stacey De Koeyer (10) stood out as Wodonga kept its unbeaten run firmly intact.
