Home court gives women chance to turn tables

The OneFortyOne Pioneers women will have the opportunity to avenge an early round loss when they take on Geelong United tomorrow night.

The Pioneers will host Geelong at Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre seeking to atone for the round 5 loss, when the Victorians handed them a two point defeat, which was the first of Mount Gambier’s season.

Mount Gambier was led by Sherrie Calleia in that clash, who top scored with 23 points.

However, this week the Pioneers will be without tall timber Zitina Aokuso, who will be in China on Opals duties.

Aokuso dominated in the match against Geelong, scoring 18 points and pulling in 10 rebounds.

Heading into round 9 the Pioneers are coming off back to back losses, having gone down to Eltham by four points last Friday night, and falling to the Casey Cavaliers by nine the week prior.

Head coach Matt Sutton said his side was looking forward to hosting Geelong.

“We will prepare differently, we do not have Zitina this week she is away in China, we will have to adjust, but we are looking forward to facing them again,” he said.

“Everyone will have to step up in their own way and use their different strengths.”
