"Our offense was like a roller coaster," WDC Head Coach Keith Ferris said. "We had our ups and downs."

The Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines led by eight at the half, 31-23, but surged ahead by 25 in the second half before the Cowgirls rallied behind a press to close the final gap to seven.

Katrina Dahlgren led the Cowgirls with 17 points.

The victory improved the Wolverines season record to 12-4. The Cowgirls lost for the fifth straight time and fell to 5-9 overall.
