It is sad to say but the 2015 - 2016 season was wrapped up Tuesday night with a 3 - 0 loss to the Swan Valley Stampeders in front of 330 fans.
The game started out pretty scrambly but the boys settled down and made Swan work for the win. WW had some very good chances but just could not capitalize on them.
1st Period - no scoring, shots 12 - 8 for Swan
2nd Period - Swan scored a PP goal at 10:51 and an even strength goal at 17:30. Shots 9 - 7 in favor of Swan
3rd Period - Swan got an empty net goal at 19:21. Shots were 11 - 10 again for Swan.
Total Shots were 32 - 25 Swan
Swan went 1 for 4 and WW went 0 for 3 on the PP
Troy Martyniuk gave WW a chance turning aside 29 out of 31 shots that he faced.
DeGraves - Shut down WW, making some fantastic saves for Swan
The boys were sad to see their season end, as were the fans but it will not be long before the coaching staff starts preparing for next season.
WW has some pretty dedicated fans that have stuck by them year after year. Hope to see you all again in the fall.
Good luck to all the 20 year old graduating players. Thanks for being a part of our team.

Wayway traveled to Swan River on Sunday night for game #1 of the Survivor Series. WW has a few players still out with injuries, so the bench isn't exactly crowded. Brayden Cullum who just returned after sitting out almost 6 weeks with an upper body injury, made his presence known early in the first, with a PP goal, assisted by Johl Swedlo. A little more than 10 minutes later, Swan would tie it up and head to the dressing room tied at 1. Shots were 13 - 11 in favor of WW.
The 2nd period was definitely more Swan in terms of shots, but it was Alex Keena for WW that scored early - twice, taking the lead to 3 - 1. (Assists going to Johl Swedlo and Dylan Tanner) However, Swan battled back and Fortin made the score 3 - 2 at 5:59. McMurdo would tie it up with a PP goal at 15:18 of the period. Score was 3 - 3 after 2. Shots were 17 - 8 for Swan.
The only goal scored in the third would be the game winner at 5:48. Unfortunately WW gave up a 2 goal lead with 3 unanswered. Shot total for the game were 41 - 35 for Swan.
WW went 1 for 2 on the PP, where as Swan went 1 for 5.
Troy Martyniuk turned aside 37 of the 41 shots he faced.
The teams will meet again at the Waywayseecappo Arena Complex on Tuesday, March 8th at 7:30 for game #2. It's do or die for the Wolverines.

With a Swan win tonight, it would have determined the Survivor Series match up but with a loss, it now falls in Selkirk's hands. If Selkirk wins their final two games , WW will play the Steelers, otherwise they will play in Swan Sunday at 6:00 for game #1.
Good luck in the survivor series boys.
