Hat-trick from Gardener too much for Wolfhounds.

The Milwaukee Barbarians hosted the Wolfhounds (Cincinnati, OH) this past weekend in an exciting match at home. 

In front of a large crowd of fans and family member, the Barbarians started strong with a pair of tries by outside center Joe Gardener.

With some help from the boot of Nick Vigder, the home team were enjoying a comfortable 15-0 lead after 28 minutes.

But the Wolfhounds fought back to score twice before halftime to narrow the scoreline to 15-13. 

The Barbarians held on in the second half with a third try for Gardener and another from Anthony Sims to put the match out of reach for the visitors.

To their credit, Cincinnati pushed hard to the end of the match and scored a try at the full-time whistle to secure a pair of bonus points.

Final score 29-23 for the Barbarians.
