Strong third period leads Wolverines to win

It didn’t start out great for the Waywayseecappo Wolverines, but they say it’s how you finish.

The Wolverines beat the OCN Blizzard 7-2 after five goals in the third period lifted the team to its fifth straight win and kept their unbeaten record at home intact.

After a scoreless first period, OCN got on the board first with a  Brett Tataryn powerplay goal.

It didn’t take too long for the Wolverines to tie it up though, when a weird bounce from the stick of Logan Wotton put Waywayseecappo on the board.

Josh Peppler then added another for the Wolves to put them up 2-1 after two periods.

OCN tied it up early in the third with Dain Sardelli goal that went five-hole. But less than two minutes later on a powerplay, Boston Bird gave the Wolverines a lead.

Jacob Charko lifted one over Nik Jerris to put Waywayseecappo up two.

After that, Andrew Boucher, Logan Wotton and Troy Hamilton added to lead to finally give the Wolverines a 7-2 win.

Liam Tereposky had 27 saves in the win, while Jerris  stopped 29.

The two teams will play once again on Sunday night in OCN at 7:00pm, to finish off the four-game regular season series.
