Big first quarter leads Brockway to win over Kane

Once the Wolves were able to get the ball in bounds they were able to penetrate and make some baskets.The game was a physical one with both teams committing several fouls. The fourth quarter alone saw Kane go to the line 14 times but were only able to connect on seven shots. Brockway shot 10 free throws and hit six.
