Wolverhampton, undeterred by the early setback, responded with a goal of their own in the 30th minute. This crucial strike demonstrated their fighting spirit and hinted at a potential comeback, keeping the spectators on the edge of their seats.

The second half continued with the same intensity, with Wolverhampton managing to level the score at 2-2 in the 57th minute. This goal underscored their efficient use of opportunities, capitalizing on one of their rare shots on goal to bring the game back to parity.

Despite the setback, Wolverhampton's defence held strong for the most part, only conceding once after the card. However, Old Wulf’s' ability to maintain offensive pressure and create scoring opportunities was the defining factor in their victory.

Old Wulf’s' win is a testament to their strategic execution and offensive firepower. Meanwhile, Wolverhampton can take pride in their competitive spirit and the ability to mount a comeback under pressure.
