“It’s a game where we did enough to get the win that we deserved and the win that was on the scoreboard. I think there’s still some aggression that we can make and I’m looking forward to that,” said Jelle Kooijman, head coach of the Wolves.

Loyalist came into this game with a record of 0-3.

“I think their current position in the league is not really representative. That being said, every team in this league is going to be very competitive, if you don’t play well (you can lose),” added Kooijman.

Outside player, Jeff Commerford, thought the team played well but needs to make some improvements for the upcoming games.

“It was a solid win, we worked together as a team pretty well. We’re focusing on getting serves better. Serving still needs a little bit more work, but it’s definitely getting better. Getting to run everyone on our offence gives us a bigger chance of winning,” said Commerford.
