The Wolf Point Lady Wolves returned home Friday night, Jan. 24, after facing their first defeat of the season against Malta Saturday, Jan. 18.
When asked what happened, coach Jeff Neubauer jokingly stated the team had gone into the Witness Protection Program. So, it was with anticipation that everyone awaited the start of the game.
After jumping out to take the first-period lead, the Lady Wolves went into halftime behind by two point.
In the third period, it was a battle and a toss up. If not for the fire that built within Sonica Archdale, the team would have been in trouble. Archdale controlled the defensive board with rebounds and the offensive board with points. When she cooled off a bit, the rest of the team picked up her effort and built up a lead.
By the buzzer, the Lady Wolves had the game in the bag with a final score of 47-37.
Leading scorers for the Lady Wolves were senior Sonica Archdale, 16; junior Jessica Bauer, 9; and senior Sarah Hafner, 8.
Leading scorer for the Lady Wildcats from Plentywood was sophomore Victoria Obergfell with 22.
On Saturday, Jan. 25, the Lady Wolves headed to Glasgow for a repeat performance. And this round was much like the first. The Lady Wolves once again tamed the Lady Scotties.
The final score was Wolf Point 43, Glasgow 25.
Individual stats were unavailable as of presstime.
Obviously, the team did not enjoy the lone taste of defeat they suffered at the hands of Malta. Let’s keep that fire and passion going through the tournaments, ladies.
