After running up a 3-0 record, Watford City’s varsity volleyball team ran into some stiffer competition this past week as they took on New England and Beulah. The Wolves edged New England, 3-2, on Tuesday and then fell to Beulah, 3-1.
And for the Wolves, their schedule this week isn’t going to include any powder puff games either as they compete in the Dickinson Tournament this weekend before hosting Stanley on Tuesday.

In what was the Wolves’ best match of the season, Watford City battled back from a 1-2 deficit to defeat the Tigers, 3-2, last Tuesday.
The Wolves won the first game with ease, out-scoring the Tigers, 25-12. But New England would take the next two games by scores of 25-18 and 25-23 to force the match into a five-game series.
The Wolves were able to regroup to take the fourth game, 25-12, and then won the fifth game, 15-7, to take the win.
