Lady Wolves win against Eagles on home ground

On Friday, the Lady Wolves traveled to Buffalo to take on the Lady Bison. Buffalo came out quickly and jumped out to a 22-5 first quarter lead.

The Lady Wolves were able to close the gap and found themselves down, 32-17 at halftime. Buffalo was able to pull away in the second half for a 66-37 victory.

We had a couple of quarters where we weren’t able to get defensive stops and our offense stalled. I thought the other two quarters were good, but we need to be able to put all four quarters together. 

On Saturday, the Lady Eagles from Tongue River came to the Wolves Den. The first half was close with neither team able to gain much ground.

Moorcroft found their offense in the third quarter to take a 34-20 lead into the last quarter. Tongue River was able to come back and get close, but the Wolves were able to secure the 43-41 victory.

I was very happy with how we responded following Friday’s game on the road. We were able to play good defense and get good shots. We struggled some in the fourth quarter, but we were able to come out on the positive side.

The girls played hard and played through some adversity towards the end of the game. It’s always good to get a win and take that momentum into the next week.  

The Lady Wolves’ final regular season game and Senior Night is on Friday, February 24, when they welcome Wheatland to the Wolves Den. It will be the final regular season game for our Seniors.

Come out and support your Moorcroft Wolves!
