Injury bug hampers lady Predators

The early season has been difficult on the Fox Creek girls basketball team.

A team that only had eight players coming into the season, the Predators (1-7, 0-2 Region 4-A) have dealt with injuries to three players, cutting the already short bench down even more.

“You know, we’ve got a couple of injuries, it’s just tough right now,” Richard Brady, Fox Creek’s head coach, said. “We’re not playing really well, with the injuries we’ve got. We also have some young kids, so we haven’t really come together and started playing well. I hope, over Christmas, we can heal up and see what happens.”

Fox Creek has had difficulty in region play, losing to Wagener-Salley and North on the road. The Predators have a break until Jan. 4, where Brady hopes they can heal up and work on fundamentals.

“We need to work individually,” he said. “We’re not catching the ball well and doing the right things. The main thing is working on our skills over break, getting healthy and starting to put some points on the board. If we can do that, hopefully we can see some improvement.”

On the court, Fox Creek has had some good games spoiled by a bad moment, according to Brady.

“We lost to North on Tuesday night. Again, we played well for a while, then something went wrong and it snowballs on us,” he said. “We’re looking to get a little bit more consistent through region play.”

After the Christmas break, Fox Creek will play at Westminister on Jan. 4, and will play host Silver Bluff on Jan. 6 and region foe Hunter-Kinard-Tyler on Jan. 7.
