WANGARATTA has now gone 77 days without a win after suffering a upset loss to Wodonga Raiders at the Norm Minns Oval on Saturday.

On a freezing cold winters day, the Magpies started poorly again and could never reel the Raiders in, going down 7.10 (52) to 5.11 (41).

After defeating Wodonga back in round six, the Magpies have lost to Albury, Wangaratta Rovers, Yarrawonga, Lavington, North Albury and Myrtleford.

The only points in the 77 days since their last win was a disappointing draw against Corowa/Rutherglen in round nine.

After being jumped by Myrtleford last round, the Magpies were again trailing early as star Raider Dean Limbach was proving dangerous up forward.

While Limbach was the star, the Raiders had several players who thrived in the conditions with Dean Giles, John Spencer, Jack Melrose, Brock Knights and Darryl Woods all performing well.

For Wangaratta, it will look to break its run of losses when it hosts Wodonga next week.
