The Wolves Ladies were in action on Monday night against the MidLothian Saints. It was the Wolves' 3rd game against Saints having visited them in the Chairman's Cup and again earlier in the league. Having been defeated twice, by relatively small margins, the Wolves were out for a win.
It was a positive start for the Wolves who ran the plays well and kept the pressure on Saints. By the end of the first quarter it was all tied up at 11-points each. Building on their strong start, the Wolves came out fighting in the 2nd quarter and convincingly took the lead. By half time the Wolves were winning 27 - 18.
Going into the 3rd quarter both teams kept the pressure on and showed strong defence, however it was Saints who came off better, closing the gap to 5-points. In the 4th quarter it was all or nothing for both teams. After a scoring lull, the Wolves again started to find their shots but Saints responded with a couple of 3-pointers in quick succession which closed the gap to 2. Within the final 30 seconds of the game, both teams called a timeout to take advantage of the floor positioning. Neither team were able to take advantage of this and the ball changed ownership time and again, bringing the game to a nail-biting close. As neither team scored in the dying seconds the Wolves managed to hold on to their lead winning 42 - 40.
It was a great team effort, both on and off the court, which secured the Wolves their second win moving them from the position at the bottom of the league table. Top scorer was K.McGowan with 14-points.
Let's Go Wolves!
