Much of Monday’s practice was spent working on offense and scoring as the Warriors are coming off of a 3-0 loss at Lander Saturday. Worland will play in Cody today at 6:30 p.m.

No time to lament on loss

LANDER – Just over a week ago, the Warriors had one of their best performances of the season with a 2-0 victory over Lander for a third place finish in the gold bracket of the Pinnacle Cup.
But the roles were quickly reversed Saturday as No. 3 Worland went on the road to No. 4 Lander and fell 3-0 to the Tigers.
Worland coach Ron Overcast knew the loss on April 18 didn’t sit well with Lander and it would look to exact revenge when the Warriors came to town – he told his team exactly that in the days leading up to the game.
But the Warriors didn’t have the same fire as they did in the first meeting. Instead, Lander did – which is why the game ended the way it did, according to Overcast.
“We came out like he had won a week earlier against them and they came out like they’d gotten beat by us a week ago,” said Overcast of the loss. “It took us a while, it took us until the second half to get going. We tried some different thing – moved a couple guys to different positions and defended them differently just to see how things would work.
“We made some good plays, but we made two or three mistakes defensively and they got it in the back of the net.”
Obviously, losing in that manner is tough to deal with – especially against a team you’ve already defeated.
But with the second 3A Northwest contest of the season ahead of them in Cody Tuesday, Overcast said they left that loss in Lander.
In fact, not much time was spent on the game other than addressing a few breakdowns they had.
He immediately shifted focus to the Broncs, giving his team the rest of the weekend and all of Monday to focus on the next task at hand.
Overcast mentioned that the Warriors have struggled to win on the road this year, having lost all three road games to 4A Riverton, Jackson and Lander.
He knows if they’re to win the quadrant, that’ll have to change.
“I preached (the need to focus on Cody) to them about two seconds after the Lander game, that was pretty much all I said to them,” Overcast said. “They know the importance of this game. Hopefully we go out (Tuesday) and set the tempo early and get after them.”
For the Warriors, Monday’s practice in its entirety was spent on their attack and not only creating opportunities to score, but finishing when given the chance.
Overcast has been vocal about the scoring lulls his team goes through at times and addressed the issue once more with various passing and shooting drills in the lone practice before facing Cody Tuesday.
