''Bc Wolves'' Played there first home game in almost full Cookstown Leisure centre court against another main Lithuanians team ''Armagh Bisons''. The Start was nervous, ''Wolves'' made to many mistakes and couldn't defend '' pick and pop'' that lead to some open three point shoots that just wen't in for Bisons. Most by T.Zuvininkas, A.Verikas and a big man R.Ramanauskas .'' Wolves '' main problem as usual was understanding each other on the court. To many unprepared shoots kept the game tied till the half time. But then most by D.Surginas assists and steals ''Wolves'' started to play more aggressive and tried to use there ''long bench'' for substitutions that kept pressure against ''Bisons''. The game ended 88-71 Win by ''Wolves''.

<<DIvision-1>>

Two years ago ''Ballymena'' and ''Bc Wolves'' were main rivals in ''Division 2'' title race, and that time ''Wolves'' won the league on the last game, and after that, a tension and a special ''Feelings'' were felt before every game between those two teams.

Yesterday another great game was played in Ballymena. Tied Score was almost for the whole match, and with only two minutes left ''Wolves'' were in front 75-70, and when it looked like finally ''Ballymena'' main player Michael Murray got tired and they might give up, but then an amazing play of basketball happened, 2.26 min left ''Wolves'' lost the ball, and managed to foul a three point shoot that went in, after that, 5 more mistakes followed from ''Wolves'' and ''Ballymena'' scored 14 points in just 2 minutes, and won the game by the final score 84-77 ! Real drama and a show for spectators !! Congratulations for ''Ballymena'' with this big Win !!! MVP- Michael Murray (Ballymena) and Vytautas Petryla (Bc Wolves)
