Five Unanswered Goals Lead Wolverines To Fourth Straight Win

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines picked up their fourth straight win on Sunday night after scoring five unanswered goals to come back and beat the Winkler Flyers 6-3.

It was all Winkler Flyers in the opening twenty minutes of play. 3:42 in, Jaden Townsend skated past the defender and beat Tereposky to give the Flyers a 1-0 lead.

Just as the Wolverines powerplay expired, they would strike. Gerrik Ripley tipped home a slap pass off a Matt Kasowski point shot to knot the game up at 1-1. Anthony Bilka chipped in with the other assist.

Four minutes after Ripley tied the game, Winkler would strike on the man-advantage. Jayden McCarthy scored his 20th of the season to give the Flyers a 2-1 lead.

With 57 seconds remaining in the first, Drake Burgin scored to give Winkler a two-goal lead, heading into the first intermission up 3-1 on the Wolverines.

In the second period, the Wolverines came alive. Kris Bladen jumped on a loose puck in front and found the back of the net to bring the Wolverines within one goal. Gerrik Ripley picked up his second point of the night with an assist while Noah Westage recorded the other.

1:15 after Bladen scored, Jacob Charko notched his third goal as a Wolverine which tied the game up at 3-3. Both Anthony Bilka and Matt Kasowski grabbed their second assists of the night.

The Wolverines would start the final twenty minutes of the night on the powerplay and would make the Flyers pay.

Rayman Bassi spun around and fired one along the ice from the slot to give the Wolverines a 4-3 lead with Conrad Phillips and Alex Lucken picking up the helpers.

22 seconds later, Matt Kasowski scored to give the Wolverines a two-goal lead with Tyler Leibl drawing the lone assist.

The scoring parade wouldn’t stop there as Anthony Bilka would put home his 10th of the season to give the Wolverines a 6-3 lead with the powerplay marker. Cody Thompson and Nick Doyle would notch assists on the scoring play.

The two clubs would battle out the rest of the third and the Wolverines would skate away with a 6-3 win. Liam Tereposky was solid once again in stopping 20 of 23 shots to pick up his fifth win in his last six starts.

Now 21-12-2-2 on the season, the Wolverines will have one day off from game action before returning to their regular-season schedule on Tuesday night at home when they host the Winnipeg Blues.
