Even in wins, the Wolves have struggled recently to put together complete games and stay away from costly penalties that slow momentum. Against Hilliard Davidson, again the Wolves had stretches of fast play, quick conversions and strong lacrosse, but also periods of multiple men in the box, costly penalties and scoring droughts with low possession time.
Despite the up and down play and heavy penalties, Kilbourne was in control on the scoreboard throughout the game. The Wolves led 7-3 at halftime, but only a 2 goal third quarter allowed Hilliard to stay in the game in the second half.
The Wolves did cash in on "man-up" opportunities when Hilliard was in the box and the prettiest goals of the game came on solid transition play and converting on a numbers advantages in fast breaks.
The Wolves will have some days off for Easter and then back at it next week. Have a safe and Happy Easter.
