Wolverines dominate in regular season finale

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines scored nine unanswered goals to beat the Neepawa Titans 9-1 in their regular season finale.

Luke Robson scored two goals and an assist, and Brett Mirwald stopped 32 shots as the Wolverines rolled into the playoffs with a dominating win.

Waywayseecappo had eight different scorers, were 2 for 3 on the powerplay, and killed off all five penalties for a complete game.

Even with a lot of good, the Titans actually started off the scoring when Cody Gudnason scored his 9th off of the year off the rush to beat Mirwald on the blocker.

But that lead was short lived as Caleb Petrie answered off a pass from Andrew Boucher from behind the net to beat Gavin Renwick to tie it up at one 32 seconds later.

Later on in the period, it was Boone Mathison getting his first goal since January 30th to make it 2-1 at the end of one.

In the second, the Wolverines really pressed on the gas pedal, as Carson Baptiste got it started for his 18th of the year, from Boston Bird and Lucas Eagle.

A couple minutes later it was Bird from Joey Moffatt and Kolton Shindle on the powerplay to make it 4-1.

Then Shindle added his 23rd of the year, when he was able to wire it past Renwick to make it a four-goal game.

Lonan Bulger was the last one to score in the period after a weird bounce in front.

Bird picked up three points in the period.

In the third, the Wolverines dominance continued as Aiden Ziprick got his first of the year, in the last game of the season, on the powerplay to make it 7-1.

Then the least two goals both came from Luke Robson to get his 11th and 12th of the year.

The Wolverines ended the game with the 9-1 victory.

The win gave the Wolverines a 33-18-2-1 record with 69 points and a .639 win percentage, which is now the best win percentage in team history, beating the 2007-08 team.

They will now wait for the schedule to come out to find out when their next game is, but they will host the Virden Oil Capitals next for the first round of the MJHL Playoffs.
