In the second period, only one goal went on the board, as Aidan Herring got his first of the season to make it 2-1.

In the third, the Wolverines weren’t able to get through, but the Nighthawks got an added goal to the board. It was Kyle Bochek who scored to make it 3-1, and that was how the game ended.

The Nighthawks moved to 2-0 on the season with the win.

The Wolverines (1-1-0-0) were 0/5 on the powerplay, just a night after putting three in on the man advantage.

The Wolverines next game will be on Wednesday night in Swan Valley to play the Stampeders.
