Waywayseecappo Wraps up Road Trip With 2-1 Loss to Winnipeg

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines gave up two late power-play goals and couldn’t claw their way back into Sunday night’s game against Winnipeg as the Wolverines would drop a 2-1 decision to the Blues.

Both teams came out of the gate with plenty of speed but were unable to capitalize on their chances in the first period. The Wolverines went 0 for 1 on the power play and saw the shot clock tied at seven apiece.

It was more of the same in the second period for both teams. The Wolverines would have a pair of chances on the man advantage but couldn’t quite get things going. Waywayseecappo managed to kill off their only penalty of the period with shots on goal tied 15-15.

The Wolverines would get into some penalty trouble in the third period with two straight penalties to send Winnipeg on a 5 on 3 advantage for 46 seconds. Winnipeg would net a pair of goals in under two minutes with Kelton Sutherland and Nathan Szun beating LaBelle.

Drew Anderson would score a late goal for the Wolverines and cut Winnipeg’s lead to 2-1, but it wouldn’t be enough as the Blues edged the Wolverines on Sunday night in Winnipeg.

Winnipeg outshot Waywayseecappo 29-24 and went 2 for 5 on the power-play, while the Wolverines went 0 for 4.

It was a fairly successful weekend for the Wolverines as the club defeated the Winkler Flyers on Friday night 4-1 and then went on to beat the Steelers 3-1 on Saturday.

Now 7-3-1 on the season, the Wolverines will make the trip to Neepawa on Wednesday night to take on the Natives at 7:30.
