Warriors out to halt skid

Warriors Abbey Chapman
Abbey Chapman has been firing for the Warriors lately.

AN eight-point win the last time the Lady Warriors played Shepparton Gators will be the furthest thing from their mind as Wangaratta try to halt a two-game skid.

Last weekend was always going to be tough; a back-to-back, injuries to key players, a road trip on Sunday and just seven players available for the second game.

Round 11 was one to forget for the Lady Warriors as they lost both of their match ups, firstly to Wodonga on Saturday night by 27 points and then on Sunday against Wallan by 47.

Wangaratta only play the one match this weekend and will be back at the Wangaratta Indoor Sports and Aquatic Centre tomorrow night and will aim to kick into some form ahead of the finals in a fortnight’s time.

Rachel Jeffery poured in 25 points and knocked down six three-pointers, but Jeffery is still in doubt, as the Warriors await a medical clearance on her knee to let her play, while Catherine Guest also didn’t suit up for the Lady Warriors over the weekend.

When the Lady Warriors’ full team is on the court and fit they have the firepower to contend with conference leaders Wodonga, but when those players are out, the depth gets exposed and while the fight is there, the points aren’t.
