Wiebe shuts out Dauphin 4-0

After a tough showcase weekend where the wolves only took 1 of a possible 4 points and now on a 5 game losing streak. The Wolverines were looking for a win back at home against their divisional rivals The Dauphin Kings. With only 9 goals in their first 7 games the boys were looking to get the offense going.

In the 1st they did just that as Neil Woolfrey would get the scoring started at the 9:29 mark with the assist going to Connar Bass. 6 minutes later Woolfrey would be at it again with his second of the game and 3rd of the year, assist to Johl Swedlo. The Wolverines would take the 2-0 lead into the 2nd.

In the second Wayway would add to their lead as George Splichal would register his 2nd goal of the year, assist to Dylan Gejdos and Robert Briem. The boys would get into a bit of penalty trouble in the second but they would weather the storm and take a 3-0 lead into the 3rd.

Wayway would round out the scoring in the 3rd as local product Landyn Cochrane would get his 1st goal of his MJHL career and he would knock home the rebound of Quinton Cubbon's shot. The other assist would go to Brock Paddock. Mitch Wiebe would bounce back after a tough loss versus Winkler, and get a shutout stopping 24 shots. The boys would pick up a much needed win heading into OCN tonight to take on the Blizzard. Wolves next home action is on Saturday October, 11 versus the Virden Oil Capitals.
