Green River Wolves 58 Pinedale Wranglers 51

The Wolves celebrated their first win of the season against the Pinedale Wranglers 58-51 on Thursday afternoon.

After taking a 36:20 lead at halftime, the Wolves prepared for their best performance of the season. A patient attack and solid defense rounded off the 16-point lead.

The Wranglers came out from behind the three-point line in the second half. A Pinedale comeback in the late fourth quarter cut Green River’s lead to five with less than three minutes remaining. However, the Wolves survived the Pinedale threat by remaining disciplined on the offensive and executing at the free throw line.

Green River will face the West Side in Green River tonight at 7:40 a.m.

Comments after the game by PG Jachob Fuss

Q: What confidence does this victory convey?

“The last week has been an educational experience playing against the four best teams in the state. We just wanted to get better last weekend. This weekend we just wanted to get a few dubs and get better and better.

This win gives us a lot of confidence. We know what to do to win and from last weekend we know what not to do. This win gives us a lot of confidence to keep going and get more victories.

Q: How did you regroup in the fourth quarter to avoid Pinedale’s comeback?

“We slowed the ball down on the offensive. On the defensive we got a little crooked, so we just took a deep breath. We got a couple of simple buckets and that spilled over into our defenses. It was just a matter of a few stops. ”
