Midway through the opening half of play the Wolves led by just five points over Delgado as action was back and forth. An 11-point run in the final five minutes of the half extended the Wolves’ lead to double digits and the team never looked back.

Head coach Kenny Bizot continued to push his team offensively to solidify the lead early in the second half. The Wolves managed to find the net in a variety of ways. Anthony Jones, a Wesson native, drove the ball to the rim with great success while Darrian Wilson, of Brookhaven, came off the bench and provided an outside threat from beyond the arc. The offensive performance left the Dolphins with little options as the Wolves quickly extended the lead in the second half leading to the win.
