Wolf Pack

If Hollywood has taught us anything, it’s that the underdogs somehow find a way to overcome adversity and triumph in the end. So, with fingers crossed, it might be the perfect time to catch the Phoenix Wolves as they play their ultimate game of the season Saturday, August 10.

It’s been a rough inaugural season of tough losses for the Valley’s first professional soccer team, but there have been a few bright spots. The hometown USL Pro league team was able to battle the Real Salt Lake, who are at the top of the MLS’s Western Conference, to a draw, no small feat. Now the Wolves’ll try to dampen the firepower of the playoff-bound Charleston Battery this weekend.

The Phoenix Wolves take on the Battery at 4 p.m. at the Reach 11 Sports Complex, 2425 East Deer Valley Road. Admission starts at $9. To purchase tickets in advance or for more info, visit
