WEST?BEND - West Bend-Mallard/Gilmore City-Bradgate's Wolverines hosted Alta-Aurelia in Twin Lakes Conference basketball action Friday night. Both the Lady Wolverines and Wolverines came up on the wrong side of the scoreboard on the evening.

For the girls game, WBM/GCB would lead after the first quarter of play, taking a 10-7 advantage, but in the second quarter, shooting woes began to hamper the Lady Wolverines, as they would trail 17-28 at the intermission. In the third quarter, Alta-Aurelia's pressure defense would create turnovers and cold shooting limited the Lady Wolverines to five points, as they would trail 22-40 going into the final frame.
