They never once lacked dedication and teamwork, continuing to put in their best effort in this last tournament. Ricky Treloar scored 12 points, closely followed by Dudley Luckie‘s 11.
On Sunday, the Wings played their hearts out the entire game against the Mississippi Wheelcats. They were in the lead until there was roughly seven minutes left, and the Wheelcats tied it up (24-24).
