The Printsync South West Slammers women’s team suffered a sobering 92-74 loss against the Kalamunda Eastern Suns on Saturday night at the Eaton Recreation Centre.

On a frustrating night for the home side, Slammers coach Nathan Grover was ejected from the sideline during the third quarter following his second technical foul of the period and remained in the locker room until the full-time whistle.

After winning four of its opening six games, Grover’s side have now lost five of its last six – a streak which could put their play-off push in jeopardy.

The visitors broke the game open late in the first term, going on an 8-0 offensive run with a minute and change left for the quarter.

New American import Katlyn Yohn got the hot hand early for the visitors, dropping 11 points and providing quality ball movement to her teammates.

The home side was unable to make inroads into the sizeable deficit after half-time, with the Eastern Suns doing their finals hopes the world of good.
