Report: West Lothian Wolves U16 Men claimed promotion to the National League Division 1 following a excellent battle against an equally deserving Grampian Flyers squad.
In a fiery game which included 6 players fouled out, Flyers took an early lead as Wolves struggled to get their fast break and baseline help working.
However, this changed in the 2nd quarter, where Wolves took control of the game and the lead which they held for the rest of the game.
A tight 3rd Quarter kept the deficit below double digits going into the final quarter.
The Wolves started the 4th Quarter strong taking the lead to 14pts before a combination of team fouls, players being fouled out and rotations allowed Flyers back into the game. The game was tied up with under a minute to go but Wolves showed their experience and maturity to use the team foul situation to their advantage, taking 4 trips to the line in the final 30 seconds to win the game.
Wolves will now play in Division 1 of the National League next season. Grampian Flyers will playoff against Glasgow City in April for the opportunity to join them.
