The Wolverines got the job done with a 46-28 victory over Haddon Township. The win netted a surplus of power points as well.
Woodstown came out lackluster in the first quarter and trailed 12-9 at the end of the period. In the second quarter, the Wolverines used an 8-0 run to take an 18-14 lead and never trailed again.
Sophomores Talia Battavio and Megan Donelson combined for 27 of their team's 46 points as Battavio notched 14 points and Donelson added 13.
"That was a win I'm proud of my girls for earning over a high end South Jersey program,"
Woodstown coach Brandon Lyons said. "Not only was our quality of play good, but we should also be getting a ton of power points from this as well.
"I think we executed our game plan and adjustments well. Today might've been our best game we've played all year."
Donelson was relieved to avenge a loss to Haddon Township from last year.
"It was relieving to get this win today in the fashion we did after they squeaked out a win against us last year," the sophomore said. "Now we're going to move on and get ready for our next game."
