It was another exciting night of back to back basketball. The Timber Wolves where facing off against the Thompson River University Wolf Pack. For this night it was really exciting because It was Shoot For the Cure, and every 3 pt Shot scored by a TimberWolf got them $10 closer to their $500 goal. The women started the night off on a positive note, by coming out in pink uniforms. Which was a really exciting change, they also had a great attitude. The great mood was bolstered by the “Future Timber Wolves” who where dancing and having a great time, supporting the TWolves. Waving their flags, shaking signs, and doing a great half time game. The Lady Twolves couldn’t gain the momentum needed, but gave a great fight with the game going to the Thompson River University with 75-53. The Men brought in the crowds, although unfortunately they weren’t also sporting pink uniforms they warmed up in bright pink t-shirts. They started the game, and it quickly escalated keeping all the fans on the edge of their seats! At half time I pulled Adam and Brandy from the crowd for my 3 pt Shoot out! The Male Future Timberwolves helped me out a lot by counting the shots made, revealing that Adam was the winner of the $50 Northern Hardware GC, $10 New York Fries GC, 2 tickets to the Spruce Kings, and a CD, Brandy who was a very good sport walked away with 2 Tickets to Symphony Orchestra, $10 New York Fries GC, 2 tickets to the Spruce Kings, and a CD. After the contest, the boys played some basketball, and they really pumped up the crowds excitement. The Twolves came back after half time but unfortunately they had lost some of the sparkle after putting up a good fight, they lost 81-71. I definitely recommend you check out this local talent, for more information check out their website here.
