The Cincinnati Wolfhounds defeated Norfolk, the Atlanta Renegades, and a tough Barbarians compilation side to win the Savannah Tournament this weekend.

The Wolfhounds were paced by wing Rashad Finley, who was a constant threat on the outside and scored numerous tries.

Head Coach Nick Lauterbach praised his team's phase play.

"We've been working on our play three to four phases in, and that, along with our defense, was good this weekend," he said.

The victory is a big one for the Wolfhounds, stung as they were by a rough end to their fall. After finishing league play 7-1, Cincinnaiti were dumped from the playoffs 21-20 by the Chicago Griffins. So despite having an excellent record, and losing only by a point in the playoffs, they are now facing a four-team relegation playoff to see which team will be relegated out of DI to make way for the Kansas City Blues.

Lauterbach professed no great love for the scenario, but at least the team has something to play for, and showed in Savannah that they can play.
