The North Star Wolves had a rough go of it last Wednesday afternoon.

The Wolves went up against the visiting Assumption Purple Raiders at the Libro Centre and came out on the short end of a 5-0 final score. 

The Purple Raiders scored early in the first half, late in the first half and three more goals in the second half.

“It was definitely not the ending we would have liked,” said assistant coach Griffin Muzzin.

Things turned sour for the Wolves after allowing the first goal, he added. There was a 45-minute delay to the start of the game due to storms that blew through the region but Muzzin was not willing to use that as an excuse, noting the delay impacted both teams.

“We’ve got to get ready and focused for the game,” said Muzzin.

The Wolves had three games left after last Wednesday’s match and Muzzin said they can’t let the Assumption game get to them. 

“We have to put it past us and use it as motivation,” he said.

North Star’s boys soccer team is “a good group of guys,” Muzzin added, and the coaches have to help the players be confident in themselves.

The Wolves returned to the pitch Monday at home versus the Herman Green Griffins. The final score was a 2-2 tie which brought their record to 0-2-2 on the 2024 WECSSAA soccer season.

Their final two games of the regular season are also at the Libro Centre in Amherstburg, with Catholic Central coming to town today (April 24) and Lajeunesse April 29.  Both of those games are scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.
