BIG LOSS: Ben Newham goes high for a spectacular basket
AFTER a great start to the season, Lithgow Workies Lazers will be out to continue their momentum when they take on Wagga Heat at home at the Barton Street stadium in Lithgow on Saturday at 6pm.
It has been four weeks since Lithgow last played, and coach Richard Marjoram and assistants Paul Fenton and Adam Marjoram have had the team working on defence and shooting options.
The only downer for the side is the loss of top young basketballer Ben Newham who suffered a hand injury a couple of weeks ago and will be out of action for a long period, if not the season.
It would have been Newham’s first season with the Lazers and looked like he was going to be a real asset in his first up match against Queanbeyan Yowies, bringing youth and enthusiasm to the side.
Lazers are looking to improve getting the ball to their strong big men Kurt Northey, Todd Brownlow, Levi Roberts and John Fenton.
Lithgow Workies Lazers have been training hard for their game against Wagga Heat.
“They are usually a well drilled team, and include an American import,” Marjoram said.
“In the past the games have always been close and intense.
“That being said, the Heat were defeated in their last game against Queanbeyan Yowies, who Lithgow defeated in the first game of the season.”
It should be a top match with the game getting away at 6pm at the Barton Street Stadium with admission only $5 for adults, students and pensioners $2 and under 14 free.
Half time entertainment will again be on and every one is welcome back to the Workies after the game.
