Oil Capitals finish Wolverines season

The Virden Oil Capitals completed the sweep over the Waywayseecappo Wolverines with a 4-3 final at Tundra Oil & Gas Place.

Bailey Monteith kept up his stellar series with a 32 save performance as the Wolverines dropped their fourth straight one goal game.

The Wolverines got the scoring started in the first when Caleb Petrie received a pass from Carson Baptiste from behind the net to out in front, and put it past the blocker of Bailey Monteith to give the Wolverines an early 1-0 lead.

But the Oil Capitals returned the favour just over two minutes later when Nathan Driver finished off a 2-on-1 with a rebound from a Braden Fischer shot to tie the game up.

With five minutes left in the period, a Nathan McInnis shot from the point found its way through to give Virden a 2-1 lead through the opening frame.

In the second period, Carson Buydens extended the Oil Capitals lead just two minutes into it on a two on one.

After the Wolverines killed off a nearly two minute 5 on 3, Lucas Eagle got his first as a Wolverine this year with a slap shot from the point to cut the deficit to one.

But only 28 seconds later, Colten Miller took a pass from Colin Cook and beat Mirwald to make it a 4-2 lead.

In the third period, the Wolverines out shot the Oil Capitals 16-6, but could only get one goal closer as Joey Moffatt kept the game close to the end.

With the win, the Oil Capitals become the first team to move on to the second round.
