The Wolves (12-0) record remained unblemished after they completed a season sweep over Heritage Conference rival Homer-Center (10-2) Wednesday night at home behind a big night from senior Sophie Fusaro.

The Wolves fell behind by six in the first quarter, but that deficit would prove to be their largest as West Shamokin quickly surged ahead to take a 27-24 lead into the locker room at the half.

West Shamokin entered the second half in second gear, going up by as many as 15 points before the Wildcats clawed their way back to just an 11 point deficit entering the fourth quarter.

The Wolves were able to keep Homer-Center at bay for the remainder of the fourth quarter, even though the Wildcats had a surge to bring the game back to within seven points, West Shamokin's steady defense was able to keep the visitors at bay.
