The Wolverines were led offensively by junior Tim Giovino, who picked up a total of 14 points for Westwood during the game.
The Wolverines faced an uphill battle against Scituate from the beginning, as the team struggled to pick up a lead. By the end of the second period, the Wolverines were behind with Scituate leading 28-22.
