Following their win over Grangemouth, the Ladies had moved through to the Quarter Finals of the Lothian Cup where they faced Dunfermline on Wednesday night (4 March).
Having faced each other twice already in the season, with each team experiencing a win at home, it was shaping up to be a close game although Dunfermline had the home advantage this time around.
Dunfermline were first to put points on the board but Wolves weren't far behind after converting 1 free throw following a foul en route to the basket. It was a close first quarter with a score of 11-8.
In the second quarter Wolves were keen to close the gap and gain control. Wolves worked hard and solid defence meant that not only did Wolves take the lead they held Dunfermline to zero points for the quarter.
After the half time break Dunfermline's number 9, who had been missing from the first half, took to the court and looked to turn the team's fortune around. Along with increased pressure on defence overall, Dunfermline forced a number of turnovers which they capitalised on to close the gap. Wolves continued to work hard and notch up points but by the end of the quarter Dunfermline had again developed a 3-point lead.
With the game as close as ever both teams wanted the win. Dunfermline continued to press and look to get the ball to No. 9 who was quickly advancing the team (scoring 20 points in 20 minutes along with several assists). The gap soon increased and Wolves were unable to respond within the remaining minutes. Game finished 59-39.
Top scorers for the Wolves were Nicole Marshall with 10 points, closely followed by Lynne McGill and Kelly McGowan with 8pts each.
