Isaac LaBelle stopped 34 of 36 shots to lead the Waywayseecappo Wolverines to a 3-2 win over the Dauphin Kings on Friday night, ending the clubs 2018 schedule in the win column.
It was the Dauphin Kings who got off to a quick start when Brendan Arnold beat Isaac LaBelle 3:56 in on a funny bounce that got behind the Wolverines netminder and trickled in.
The Wolverines would have their chances to even the game up with three powerplay opportunities in the first, which would include a 5 on 3 for over one minute. Missing on a few key shots, the Wolverines would head into the first break down 1-0.
In what was a penalty-filled second period, the Wolverines would end up capitalizing on a late powerplay when Morgan Poirier scored his 11th of the season to knot the game at 1-1 just before the second intermission.
After a heated second period, both the Wolverines and Kings would mix it up once again.
Carter Sawchuk’s 10th of the season on the powerplay would give the Kings a 2-1 lead less than three minutes into the third period before the Wolverines would get a spark from Conrad Phillips first MJHL fight.
Just over one minute after Phillips squared off with Heeney, Brandon Lawson scored his 8th of the season to tie the game up at 2-2 with over 12 minutes to play in the third.
With less than ten minutes to play, Greg Lee scored an unassisted marker on Landsberger to give the Wolverines their first lead of the game at 3-2.
Dauphin would get one last chance on the powerplay in the final five minutes, but Isaac LaBelle would shut the door and help lead the Wolverines to a 3-2 win over the Kings. Ending off 2018 with a victory, the Wolverines now sit at 15-17-2-2 heading into the Christmas break.
The Wolverines return to the regular season schedule on January 3rd when they take on the Oil Capitals in Virden at 7:30.
