Titans come back in third to beat Wolverines

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines let the Neepawa Titans score three unanswered in the third, in a 4-2 loss in Neepawa.

Taking a lead into the third period, the Titans scored three in less than seven minutes to give themselves the win.

In the first period there was no scoring by either team. The Wolverines had two powerplays during the period, but couldn’t answer on any of them.

In the second period, the Wolverines were the first to get on the board, when Cody Blight got a rebound and put it past Gavin Renwick.

Neepawa responded halfway through the period on the powerplay, when Simon Davidson scored off a weird shot to tie it up.

But near the end of the period, 25 seconds left, Boone Mathison finished up a 2-on-1 with Cole Carlson and deked out the goaltender to make it 2-1 heading into the third.

Early in the period, Brayden Michalchuk got a rebound after a puck hit the face of a Wolverines player, and was able to beat Lochlan Gordon to make it 2-2.

At 7:24, Michalchuk scored again to make it 3-2 on a goal that surprised the defence of the Wolverines.

Neepawa added one more with a Dillon Birch goal, when the puck was a scramble in front and wasn’t blown down.

A night after the Wolverines had three powerplay goals, they had none on five attempts in this one.

Lochlan Gordan gave up four goals on 24 shots. Renwick stopped 27 of 29 for the win.

The Wolverines will now have a week-long break with no games, until October 25th when they head to Virden to take on the Oil Capitals.
