Spirit keen to atone for loss

THE Bendigo Bank Spirit will be determined to atone for their only loss of the WNBL season on Saturday when they host the Townsville Fire.

However, since the 12-point loss the Spirit have won 16 games in a row to cement their position at the top of the WNBL ladder, while the Fire sits fourth with an 11-6 record.

The two sides lock will lock horns at the Bendigo Stadium from 3pm, with the match also to be shown live on ABC TV.
