Watford City was no match for a very physical, hard-hitting Stanley team in volleyball action last Tuesday as the Blue Jays swept the Wolves in three games.
But the Wolves rebounded after the loss coming back to down Parshall, 3-1, on Thursday to improve their season record to 12-9-2 and 6-2 in dual action.
This week, the Wolves will host Trenton on Thursday evening and compete in the Beach Tournament on Saturday.
Stanley 3, Watford City 0
