The Timberwolves were smoked 6-0 Tuesday by La Crosse Central before regrouping to defeat La Crosse Logan 2-0 Thursday in a pair of Mississippi Valley Conference road games.
The match against Central came just 24 hours after the Timberwolves' emotional 2-0 victory over Sparta Monday, and Tomah coach Scott Conzemius said his team was still feeling the effects.
"I believe the match against Sparta the night before took too much out of us mentally," Conzemius said. "We just didn't have our normal intensity, which is what we needed to match Central's aggressive attacking style of play."
