Heading into the game, the Pirates were short handed once again. Shane DeRosa and Michael Mendes were selected to play with their Cape Verde national team this week, as two starters were missing, playing the Wolves who tend to give the Pirates a run for their money became just that much harder.

With DeRosa and Mendes out, multiple Pirates needed to step up to fill the holes left behind.
