Venter looking for improvement
Goal Shooter Ine-Mari Venter feels that her side need to shift the focus back onto themselves, ahead of this weekend’s double header of matches against Celtic Dragons and Manchester Thunder.
Last weekend, Mavericks were well in the hunt against Surrey Storm, only to see the result slip away from them in the final quarter. Reflecting on that match, Venter felt that her side needed to focus on the two matches coming up, as well as taking a look at themselves internally, as they strive for improvement.
“There was some really great stuff out there, but lots of things to work on too. That’s been the theme throughout the season so far. We were disappointed by the score line. We really wanted to take it to Storm but couldn’t quite do it. Although it was competitive, we let the scoreboard blow out. It wasn’t a great result, but we can’t let that get to us as we have two big games coming up this weekend and we need to focus on those.”
Dragons on Friday night represents another challenging away day for Mavericks. Venter wants to see her side put the emphasis back on themselves and focus on the consistency of play throughout the full sixty minutes.
