Wolverines Fall 8-2 To Blizzard In Uncharacteristic Loss

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines fell flat on Thursday night, falling 8-2 to the OCN Blizzard.

From the start of the first period, things just weren’t going the way of the Wolverines.

After Sam Willits opened the scoring for OCN to give the Blizzard a 1-0 lead, OCN would score three goals in the final nine minutes of the frame to grab a 4-0 lead.

The Wolverines would get a late powerplay where Reagan Rabbit’s point blast would find the back of the net with Matt Swanson and Tyler Leibl notching the helpers.

Leading into the second period down 4-1, OCN would jump on the Wolverines early. Wes Dobbin and James Maxwell would score two goals in 21 seconds to give the Blizzard a 6-1 lead.

Darren Gisti would add one more for the Blizzard before the end of the second and OCN would take a 7-1 lead into the third period.

At the midway mark of the third, Matt Swanson would score for the Wolverines to cut their deficit to five.

OCN would add a late goal to take a commanding 8-2 lead and that would be all for the scoring on Thursday night as the Wolverines would drop an 8-2 contest to the Blizzard.

With the loss, the Wolverines fall to 10-5-2-1 on the year and will have four days off between games before they return to action against the Dauphin Kings on November 5.
