The Waywayseecappo Wolverines outplayed the Winnipeg Freeze throughout the entire game on Friday night, but still needed late game heroics to get a 5-3 win.
Even though the Wolverines outshot the Freeze 49-19, a Guerin Apperley goal with 5:13 left in the third period was what was needed to put the Wolverines out front for the final time of the evening.
Winnipeg scored first in the game, with a Kyle Grysiuk goal that he was able to find in a flurry in front of Wolverines goaltender Tresor Wotton.
Later in the period, Boone Mathison completed a nice pass from Ryan Jossy to tie the game at one at the end of the first period.
In the second period, Cole Carlson put the Wolverines out in front when he was able to put a loose puck over the pad of Keegan Gordon.
But a Wolverines turnover later in the period, gave Jack Kabaluk the chance to finish off a 2-on-1 with Trey Sellen, which he did to tie the game.
It took about halfway through the third period, for Cole Carlson, shorthanded, to break away and beat Gordon to put the Wolverines in front.
But Winnipeg tied it up when Andrew Thevenot sniped it over Wotton to tie it up once again.
But a minute and 20 seconds later, Guerin Apeprley was able to take a shot from the point that went through everyone to give the Wolverines their last lead of the game.
Caden Carlson then later iced the game with a nice shot of his own to make it 5-3.
The Wolverines were once again brilliant shorthanded, killing off all four penalties, including getting a shorthanded goal.
The two teams will play once again on Saturday night, this time in Waywayseecappo at 7:30pm.
