Ahern And Wolverines Blank Blues In Key Victory

Colin Ahern picked up his first shutout and MJHL win in his first start while Brody Moffatt notched a pair of goals and a fight to help lead the Waywayseecappo Wolverines to a 5-0 shutout win over the Winnipeg Blues on Saturday.

The Wolverines stormed out of the gate in the first twenty minutes and pumped 21 shots on Blues Goaltender, Cooper Hatfield.

Reagan Rabbit broke the tie on the powerplay when his snapshot beat Hatfield upstairs to give the Wolverines a 1-0 lead.

Matt Kasowski and Jacob Charko notched assists on the scoring play.

49 seconds after Rabbit opened the scoring, Brody Moffatt jumped on the puck in front and found the back of the net to increase the Wolverines lead to 2-0 on his unassisted marker.

Just 1:56 into the second period, Brody Moffatt would score his second of the night to cap off a beautiful passing play with Rayman Bassi which would give the Wolverines a 3-0 lead.

No more than four minutes later, Jaymes Knee would get hauled down on a breakaway and was awarded a penalty shot.

Knee came in with patience and beat Hatfield’s blocker to give the Wolverines a 4-0 lead.

With 5:20 to go in the period, Conrad Phillips scored his 16th of the season to put five on the board for the Wolverines.

Alex Rivet notched his first MJHL assist on the goal while Jaymes Knee added the other.

The Wolverines would head into the final twenty minutes leading 5-0.

Brody Moffatt and Rhys Raeside would drop the gloves early in the third period and that would be it for the pair as they would head off for fighting majors.

The Wolverines would pour it on in the third and end up outshooting the Blues 51-22 while Colin Ahern would seal the deal for the Wolverines to help lead the team to victory.

Now 22-15-3-2 on the season, the Wolverines will have a couple of days off before they host the Portage Terriers on Tuesday night to continue their five-game homestand.
