After another division leading season, the Charlotte Wolfpack have fallen in the first round to division rival San Antonio Stallions. Shortly before this season’s All-Star break San Antonio GM, Ken Adadry, issued a playful challenge to the longtime division champs. Encouraged by his team's success he spoke out publicly and saying, “I’m coming for you Wolfman!”. Charlotte owner, Wolfman19 responded by outrightly dismissing the Stallions chances of catching the Wolfpack and even suggesting they wouldn’t be able to hold onto 2nd place. Later on in the season, Wolfman19 gloated after the Wolfpack swept the Stallions chiming, “Looks like the Stallions got sent to the glue station".
But in the end, the two teams faced off in the first round of the playoffs to settle things where it counted. And by the time the dust and the banter settled at the end of the first round of the playoffs, it would be the Wolves from Charlotte who were humbled by the San Antonio Stallions. After losing the first two games at home by large margins (7-1, 9-2), the Wolfpack managed one win in San Antonio before being sent packing in an 8-3 fourth game loss. Alexander Green, already an established start despite only being 23 yrs old, led the Stallion offense, hitting .412 and hitting 3 homers in the 4 game series. Surprise Rule 5 pickup and fan favorite Billy Hunter played stellar defense at 2B and was the sparkplug of the offense, hitting .400 with a .429 OBP and swiping 3 bases.
With their best season ever and their playoffs still going, perhaps the San Antonio Stallions have shown that they’re a force to be reckoned with in the future.
