Wolverines edge Blizzard in shootout

Liam Tereposky kept his shootout saves streak alive as the Waywayseecappo Wolverines beat the OCN Blizzard 3-2 in a shootout.

Boston Bird scored the shootout winner, and Tereposky stopped all three shots he faced to give the Wolverines two points.

The Blizzard got outstanding goaltending by Steven Bacovsky who stopped 37 shots in the loss. Tereposky stopped 29 in the win.

The first period was scoreless, and it took until 2:01 into the second for the Blizzard to get the first goal of the game. It was Levi Thiessen with the wrist shot over the glove of Tereposky.

Leyton Smith answered six minutes later with a goal on the powerplay.

Brock MacDonald got the Blizzard back in front late in the second off a powerplay goal.

The Wolverines answered when another defencemen, Owen Wheatley, got one past Bacovsky.

The game had no more goals the rest of the way, as it went to OT as well, but no answer on either side.

In the shootout, Bird scored on the Wolverines second shot, and Tereposky was able to stop all three shooters including a great save on Brock MacDonald for the Blizzard’s first shot.

The Wolverines now move one point back of the Dauphin Kings for first in the West Division, and two points back of first place in the MJHL.

The next game for the two teams is on Friday at the Waywayseecappo Arena at 7:30pm.
