By: Eddy Gifford, Publisher

The Dade County Wolverine basketball team hosted the Chattooga Indians on Tuesday night last week and found themselves in a battle early in the game.

In the first quarter the Indians matched the Wolverines shot for shot and at the end of the first quarter it was a one point game 14-13 with the Wolverines on top.

The Wolverines opened it up in the second quarter, outscoring the visitors 25-9 and that turned out to be the deciding factor in the game as the two teams matched points exactly in the second half.

Up 39-22 at the end of the first half the Wolverines outscored the Indians 18-17 in the third quarter but the Indians outscored the Wolverines 21-20 in the fourth.

Due to the big second quarter the Wolverines claimed a 77-60 region win to improved to 4-1 in region and 12-3 overall.

Cole Birchfield led the Wolverine scoring with 21 points with Dustin Howard scoring 18 and Clynt Bell adding 17.

Howard also grabbed 13 rebounds and Birchfield had 10 rebounds and six steals.

On Friday night the Wolverines traveled to Pepperell to face the Dragons in another region contest.

The Wolverines got off to a really slow start scoring only seven first quarter points and fell behind 13-7.

Finding their shooting range in the second quarter, the Wolverines outscored the Dragons 25-14 to take a 32-27 halftime lead.

The Wolverines scored 21 in the third but the Dragons answered with 20 to stay within striking distance, 53-47.

In the fourth quarter the Dragons outscored the Wolverines 16-9 to claim the win 63-62.

As time expired an obvious foul was not called that would have put the Wolverines at the free throw line with a chance to win the game but those things happen when you play away from home.

That puts the Wolverines in third place in region play behind Calhoun, who comes to Trenton on Friday night and Pepperell. They both have 4-1 records while the Wolverines are currently are 4-2.

Bell led the Wolverines with 21 points followed by Birchfield with 20 and Howard with 10.

Howard also had sfevenrebounds and Nic Gaddis had seven assist.

Tuesday night the Wolverines hosted Coosa and on Friday night a big game with Calhoun is on tap.
