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.
