Focus turns to mindset

The Saints’ season struggles have continued with a shock loss to Rochester on Saturday.

Coach Pip O’Donoghue said the girls were heading into the game with an easy win in mind.

‘‘We went in expecting it to not be as tough, so we need to work on our mindset,’’ Pip said.

‘‘The girls can’t go in thinking it’s going to be an easy game because you never know what the other team is going to be like.’’

Rochester took an early lead on the Saints and were unstoppable from there, taking victory 65-30.

Grace Amarant and Kelsey Pallpratt put in a courageous effort in the the mid-court while Kelsey Rigg stepped up in the goal circle.

As the Goulburn Valley League moves into the halfway point of the season, the Saints are yet to claim a win since their round-four encounter with Euroa.

‘‘Obviously the goal is to improve and build on each week, but we took a back step on Saturday and I’m not sure why,’’ Pip said.

‘‘After this week we’ll get back to training and work to get a positive mindset back.’’

The Saints next match up is against Mansfield who tasted round-nine victory against Euroa.

‘‘It’s up to the girls if they want to go in and win it,’’ Pip said.

The win would be a huge confidence boost for the struggling Saints moving into the second half of the season.

That game will be played Mansfield Recreation Reserve at 2.15pm Saturday.
