Boone’s OT winner gives Wolverines win over Blues

Boone Mathison scored the overtime winner to lift the Wolverines to a 5-4 overtime win over the Winnipeg Blues.

After blowing a two-goal lead, the Wolverines were able to get all four points over the weekend and extend their West Division lead.

Carson Baptiste started the scoring off with his 23rd of the season with a powerplay goal.

The Wolverines added to their lead when Owen Pringle got a favourable bounce to get his first MJHL goal.

But with less than a minute left, the Blues got on the board when Tyler Dodgson found a hole and beat Marek Andres to make it 2-1 Wolverines heading into the break.

The Wolverines extended their lead to two goals after Cody Blight got his second of the weekend just thirty seconds into the period.

But the Blues came back within one again when Luke Janus got his 19th of the season to make it 3-2.

Blight added his second of the game with a tipped in shot on the powerplay to make it 4-2.

In the third period, the Blues responded with a couple more. Liam Dumelie scored three and a half minutes into the period to make it 4-3. Then with seven minutes left in the third, Thomas Kaufield tied it up.

But in overtime, Boone Mathison split the defence, and got his 13th goal of the season to win the game for the Wolverines.

Marek Andres got his first win as a Wolverine in the game as well.

The Wolverines will now play against the Neepawa Titans on Tuesday at 7:30pm.
