The Wolves welcomed the Concordia Thunder to their gym for their Home Opener.
The Thunder opened the quarter on an 11-0 run, in front of a busy season opener crowd. Coach Bradley called a time out half way through. Kelly Reid came out of the time out and scored a 3 point bucket. The offense was sparse as the quarter ended 16-5 Thunder.
Concordia started the scoring in the second and the Wolves followed. Wolves tried to close the 11 point gap. Concordia point scorer was lead by #13 Leah Piekema with 11 points at half. Half ended 36-19 for the Thunder.
Half time was brought to you by the Adrenaline Athletics Cheer Team. Three different age groups performed a variety of cheers as they entertained the crowd.
Lots of scoring in the second half. Wolves doubled their points and then some. Wolves came back from a 30 point deficit to end the game 52-73. Kelly Ried drained a 3 from the baseline in the last few seconds.
Player of the Game for the Concordia Thunder was #13 Leah Piekema with 23 points and for the GPRC Wolves #14 Caitlin Paul with 9 points . Both teams are back in action tomorrow at 1pm at the GPRC gymnasium.
