Wolverines comeback to defeat Nighthawks

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines made it tough on themselves, but found a way to get two points with a 4-2 win over the Niverville Nighthawks.

The Wolverines scored four unanswered to come back from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Nighthawks.

Niverville started the scoring in the first period with a bad angle goal by Ty Kennett, that beat Wolverines goaltender Lochlan Gordon to make it 1-0.

In the second period, the Nighthawks added to their lead when Josh Paulhus finished off a great passing play from Brendan Bottem and Braden Panzer to make it 2-0.

The Wolverines looked out of it, until a spark was made by the Team Captain, Andre Boucher, who wired it past Ethan Kadatz to make it a one goal game heading into the third period.

The Wolverines tied it 4:22 into the period when Nolan Grier was found all alone from a pass by Cole Carlson. Grier made a nice move on Kadatz to tie the game up at 2.

Halfway through the third, it was Boone Mathison who finished off a 2-on-1 with Andrew Boucher to give the Wolverines their first lead of the game and the weekend.

The Wolverines finished it off with a Carson Baptiste empty net goal. That goal was Baptiste’s 14th of the season.

The Wolverines finished with a 33-25 shot advantage in the game, and both teams failed to score on the powerplay going a combined 0/10.

Lochlan Gordon picked up his third win of the campaign.

The Wolverines will next play on Thursday when they take on the Selkirk Steelers at 7:30pm.
