The Wolves’ offense put up three consecutive quarters of 15 points each while their defense held Andrean to three straight quarters of 7 points each.
After 3 periods, the Wolves held a dominating 45-21 lead.
A furious fourth-quarter rally saw the 59ers outscore the Wolves, 35-19, to make the game close in the end but the comeback fell short as City finished strong down the final stretch and claimed the 64-56 win.
