The Wolves went into this game looking for their first win of the season. The Wolves started off well and at the end of the 1st quarter were 3-up and were leading by 1 point at half time! With not much between the two sides it was going to be a close game going into the 3rd quarter. Both teams were playing well and with L.McGill on fine shooting form it turned out to be quite an exciting 3rd quarter with both teams pulling off great shots and working well in defence. However in the 4th quarter Wolves began to tire and started making mistakes which was to Steel's advantage, they took the lead with 3 mins remaining and with some smart plays Steel won the game 41-34. L.McGill was Top Scorer for Wolves with 12 points

The Wolves Senior Men Division 1 team faced off against the Edinburgh based Spartans on Saturday in Lothian League action.

This weekend Leah Stewart goes to her last selection day for the Scotland under 16 girls. After the last trial day the squad was trimmed to 20 players, after this weekend the squad will be cut even further to 12 players. This will be the Scotland squad that will go forward and work towards the international Euro C competition next summer.
What makes the trial even more intriguing is that Leah is only 12 years old. It would be a brilliant feat if she can make it into the squad and I am sure the whole club is supporting her with the trial.
Good luck Leah.
