By JUDI WIEGMAN

Our neighbors from Stratford came to town for some basketball games Tuesday, and it was a very exciting, tough-fought game by both teams.  The Wolves struggled with penalties the first half, while Stratford played almost flawlessly.  However, in the second half, the role seemed to be reversed until the end of the game when Stratford picked up most of the penalties.  The Wolves took an 8-5 lead off of an outlet pass to Davonte Burks who raced down court and laid the ball in for two points.  At the end of the first quarter the lead was 12-7.
