Watford City continued to find their offense as Legacy led the Wolves, 53-16, at the end of the first half and then posted a 49-18 scoring advantage in the second half.
“I thought that the guys came out ready to play. We did a good job breaking their press,” stated Dave Gumke, Wolves head coach. “We are getting better and are starting to see improvements in competitiveness in practice that will transfer over to the game.”
