Overtime troubles continue for Wolverines

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines lost another extra time game, again to the Virden Oil Capitals by a score of 3-2 in a shootout.

Nolan Chastko and Nicholas Guberman both scored in the shootout, and Nolan Grier and Andrew Boucher both were stopped by Oil Capitals goaltender Eric Reid.

It is the third straight game that the Oil Capitals have beat the Wolverines in extra time this season.

It took nearly seven minutes for the Oil Capitals to get the first goal, when Trevor Hunt got a shot right through Tresor Wotton to get the first goal of the game.

Then with 4.2 seconds left in the first, Josh Lehto tipped in  a shot from David Bielik that got over the glove of Wotton and found a corner to make it 2-0 and take that lead into the first break.

The Wolverines couldn’t get past Oil Capitals goaltender Eric Reid until halfway through the second, when Nolan Grier was able to wire it past him to make it a one goal game going into the third.

Grier tied the game banging in a loose puck with just six and half minutes to go. But that was all the scoring for the game, and the two teams went to overtime.

The extra frame solved nothing, so the game went to a shootout, where Virden got the full two points.

The Oil Capitals now move three points clear of Waywayseecappo in the West Division.

For the Wolverines, it is their fifth game this season that went to extra time, and they have yet to win one of those games.

The Wolverines will now travel to Portage on Friday to take on the Terriers, with the game at 7:30pm.
