The Winnipeg Blues opened the scoring and never looked back on Friday night as the Waywayseecappo Wolverines would fall 3-2 to the Blues to open up their two-game road trip.
It was the Blues who would strike first on Friday night when Brayden Foreman beat Liam Tereposky with a shorthanded marker to give the Blues an early 1-0 lead.
Five minutes after Foreman opened the scoring, the Blues would add to their lead. Ethan Hersant scored to give Winnipeg a 2-0 lead.
Before the end of the period, some pressure from the Wolverines would pay off. Brody Moffatt’s shot would somehow find its way to the net and beat Blues goaltender, Cooper Hatfield to cut the Wolverines deficit to one.
Just like they did in the first, the Blues would open the scoring in the second. Mikol Sartor beat Tereposky to give Winnipeg their two-goal lead back at 3-1.
In his first game back from injury, Jaymes Knee would come down the wing on a 3-on-1 where he would onto the puck and wrist it over the blocker of Hatfield. Gerrik Ripley and Kris Bladen would pick up assists on the scoring play.
Heading into the third period down by one, the Wolverines would push the Blues early on. Despite putting on some pressure and carrying momentum for a solid chunk of the third, the Wolverines just couldn’t quite get anything to go and would drop a 3-2 loss to the Blues.
Now 11-6-2-1 on the year, the Wolverines will cap off their two-game road trip with a date in Portage on Saturday night against the Terriers at 7:30.
