The Red team opened the scoring 2 ½ minutes into the first period when Ryland Nernberg deflected a Riley Boles point shot with the other assist going to Tyrell Armstrong. Black answered back less than a minute later with Kevin Takatch’s point shot. Assist going to Dylan Gejdos. Red scored their second goal on the power play when Johl Swedlo capitalized on a rebound. Assists were credited to Alex Keena and Kelly Rintoul. Black again tied the game at 2 with 5 ½ minutes left when Shane Roullete slid it underneath the goalie. Assists was credited to Robert Briem. Black took the lead 40 seconds later on an unassisted goal by Wade Johannesson. Red tied it up a half minute after that on a goal by Swedlo. After the first, the score ended 3-3.

Four minutes into the second, Black took the lead on a nice passing play ending with a goal by Briem assisted by Landyn Cochrane and Roullete.  Red answered back at the 10 minute mark when Stephen Dora went top corner with assists going to William Harrison and Jesse Tower. The game was 4-4 after 2.

In the third period the goal tenders battled hard as there was a lot of scoring chances.  Red finally scored with 2:31 left in the period when George Splichal fought through the defence and backhanded a shot over the goalie. Assist to Jeremie Goderis.

Wolverines Drop One in OT

After a loss in Neepawa on Wednesday, the Wolverines came up short with a 6 to 5 OT loss at the Tundra Oil and Gas Place in Virden.
The Wolves started out with good life and had control of the play early on in the first period.  At the 4:43 mark of the opening frame Aaron Dupasquier scored an unassisted goal when Virdens goaltender Adam Iwan whet to retrieve his stick and a turnover in the neutral zone gave Aaron an open net.  After an entertaining altercation between Wayway’s Braden Pettinger and Virden’s Curtis Houlden the Wolverines were unable to maintain the momentum they had in the early part of the period and gave up 3 goals in the last 5 minutes of the first. The Wolverines were outshot 16-14 in the period.
The second period saw the Wolverines again come out hard again scoring at 1:43 when Jared Sprink jumped on a rebound and put it under the cross bar. Assists went to Brenden Luschinski and Cole McCaig.  The teams played even for most of the period with Virden scoring 15 minutes into the period taking a 4 to 2 lead.  After a delay to replace a piece of glass in the north end of the rink the Wolverines found some life and scored a power play goal at the 17:14 mark on a shot from Robert Briem. Assists went to George Splichal and Dylan Nelson. A minute and a half later the Wolverines scored another power play goal off the stick of Devon Schade assist to Briem. The period ended in a 4 - 4 tie.  Wolverines outshot Virden 14 to 6 in the period.
The third was an evenly played period between the two teams with the Wolverines scoring 4 minutes in when Luschinski capitalized on a rebound from a point shot. Assisting on the goal were Montana Tanner and McCaig.  The lead lasted for only 3 minutes when Virden tied the game up. Mitch Wiebe had a strong game again for the Wolverines making numerous outstanding saves and again giving the Wolverines a chance to win the game. Wolves were outshot 18 to 7 in the third frame.
The game ended 1:44 into the extra frame when the Oil Caps scored their third power play goal of the night.
The Wolverines will have little time to dwell on this game as they get ready to host the Neepawa Natives Saturday (tonight) at 7:30.
