The Wolves got a 35 from Jake Edwards for their low score, and he was backed up by a 41 from Klayton Booth, a 45 from Thayne McElhinney and a 50 from Kolt Rossiter. IMS was led by Tanner Leyden with a 45, followed by a 55 from Roman Slabach, Lane Schrock shot a 56 and Ben Miller finished with a 63.

IMS head coach Steve Nelson said that lack of practice due to the cold temperatures has hurt their consistency, but he is optimistic about his teams ability to improve.
