South Wagga’s late-season flurry will come to a point this weekend as Luke Nichols and the green machine eye off their biggest scalp of the year – Lake Albert.
The Warriors have enjoyed somewhat of a mini-resurgence at the back end of the season after entrenching themselves in the bottom two with a string of poor performances early on.
Injuries didn’t help their cause as South Wagga endured a barrage of goals – one 8-0 shellacking at the hands of Henwood Park springs to mind – but things have largely turned around since their round nine clash with the Sharks.
The Warriors shot out to an early lead and threatened to stun Mitch Tinnock’s side before being reeled in for a 3-1 loss.
Nichols believes the tables can be turned this weekend.
“I think we played pretty well against them in the past and we’re hoping to end the season on a high,” Nichols said.
The skipper was pleased with his side’s efforts in a 3-2 win over Tumut last weekend and is hoping for a similar result to end a torrid year.
“We went well out in Tumut and I think everyone’s keen to take on Lake Albert,” Nichols said.
