Flyers sweep weekend series

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines fell by the same score on Friday night, as they lost to the Winkler Flyers 4-1 on Saturday.

After scoring the first goal of the game, the Wolverines let by four unanswered goals to Winkler.

Landon Van Engelen scored the first one on a backhand at 8:18 into the first period. The pass was given from Jack Clarke and was also assisted by Cody Blight.

But quickly into the second period, the Flyers tied it up, with a goal by Dayton Kiesman 2:44 into the period. The goal was scored from a point shot that hit a few bodies before going into the net.

Later on, the Flyers scored on a shorthanded chance when a pass from Kyle Crewe found the slot for Trent Penner to give the Flyers a 2-1 lead.

By the end of the period, Winkler got a third goal by Logan Fillion on a turnover and wired it past Wolverines netminder Lochlan Gordon.

Early on in the third period, Zach Nicholas was left alone in front of the net to receive a pass from Dalton Andrew to make it 4-1.

The Flyers sweep the weekend back to back and have tied the season series against the Wolverines. The two teams are not scheduled to play again for the rest of the season.

Malachi Klassen stopped 40 shots in the win, while Gordon stopped 33 shots.

Both teams powerplays did not result in a goal, and the Wolverines were 0/6 with the man advantage.

The Wolverines will head on the road for their next game, when they take on the Neepawa Titans on Tuesday.
