Kings shut out Wolverines

The inconsistency of the Waywayseecappo Wolverines showed its ugly head as the team dropped a 5-0 decision to the Dauphin Kings.

Two nights after beating Dauphin on the Kings’ home ice, the Wolverines put up a lowly performance on Monday Night.

Dauphin scored the first goal of the game, just 3:53 into it, as Mason Smith got one assisted by Jovan Malay and Owen Wareham.

The Kings could have scored plenty more in the rest of the period and second period, but couldn’t get one past Lochlan Gordon, who stopped 26 of 27 shots in the first two periods.

But the Wolverines couldn’t get one past the Kings netminder, Cole Sheffield. Who ended up saving all 21 shots in the contest.

But in the third period, the Kings exploded with four goals, starting with a Mason Smith goal 42 seconds into the period.

At 9:12, Thomas Stewart got a tipped shot that went over Gordon, to make it 3-0.

Mason Smith ended up taking away the puck before getting his hat trick goal to make it 4-0.

And then to wrap it up, Matthew Gough scored on the powerplay to wrap the game up at 5-0.

Dauphin outshot the Wolverines 39-21 in the game, and was 1/6 on the powerplay. The Wolverines finished 0/2.

The Wolverines will head to Winnipeg on Friday to take on the Freeze for a start of a back to back that concludes on Saturday in Waywayseecappo.
