Timberline Wolves roar to victory in comeback win

Campbell River's Timberline Wolves improved their record (league and exhibition) to 14 wins and three losses

The Wolves improved their record (league and exhibition) to 14 wins and three losses, with victories at Pacific Christian School in Victoria and at John Barsby Secondary in Nanaimo last Saturday.

Timberline fell behind by 20 in the Pacific Christian game.  With some impressive three-point shooting by Sam Phillips and steady play at both ends under the basket, the Wolves managed an impressive comeback and a 79 to 75 victory.

The Barsby game was much different, with the Wolves and Barsby keeping the score close throughout the first half.  The Wolves established a lead in the third quarter, never giving it up, in the 57 to 51 victory.

These games helped move the Wolves from eighth to seventh ranking on the Island as they prepare for the final two league games of the season and the playoffs.

Wolves play Isfeld in league play on the 31st at Isfeld and against, the always tough, Highland, on Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. at home.  These games will be important to establish first place seeding in their division for the North Island playoffs Feb. 16-18 at Wellington in Nanaimo.
