After two wins at home, the Geraldton Buccaneers are hoping to get the same results on the road as they face both Mandurah Magic and Perry Lakes Hawks this weekend. The two sides could not be having different fortunes this year as Mandurah sit at the bottom of the table with four losses from four games while the Hawks are flying high sitting second with a 6-1 record. The Buccs sit at 4-2 in fourth and know two wins this weekend will go a long way to securing their top-four ambitions. The Magic are first up on Saturday and despite having a poor start to the season coach Dayle Joseph will not be taking them lightly. “There a bit of an unknown for us they’ve got a new import coming on Wednesday so we’re not sure what that will bring them,” he said. “We’ve been tweaking our game a little bit trying to make sure we run the ball and hopefully we can do that against Mandurah and expose them a bit on the ruin. “Perry Lakes are completely different, they go ten-deep and will be tough all game but it’s the sort of game we need to win, they’re ahead of us and if you want to be serious and put your name in the hat early it’s a good win to get.” After an up-and-down start the Buccs’ tweaked game-style has started to shine through in the past few weeks. “You’re not going to play a perfect game and you’re not going to be able to do that against every team either,” Joseph said. “Hopefully, when we can use it, we use it well and be versatile and when we need to slow it down we can and get some good shots and try to be more flexible. “We’re playing a lot more aggressive and fast-paced now, especially with guys like Fletcher (Klasztorny) getting more minutes and Zac and all these guys are super athletic getting. “It’s a lot different than last year where we were a bit more slow in the half court, ran more plays whereas now we just play tough defense and run and basically ran them off their feet, it’s very fun to watch.” The Buccs will face Mandurah at 7pm on May 6 at Mandurah Aquatic Centre before taking the Hawks at Bendat Basketball Centre at 12pm on May 7.
