Wolverines fall late in Dauphin

The Dauphin Kings were able to steal a full two points from the Waywayseecappo Wolverines with a 3-2 win at the Credit Union Place.

Luke Morris scored with 26 seconds left on the clock to get past the Wolverines comeback and get a win in regulation.

In the early parts of the first period, the Dauphin kings got off to a very quick start. It started with a goal seven seconds into it when Kaden Bryant was able to get a breakaway and deke around Brett Mirwald to make it 1-0.

Thirty-five seconds later, Nick Braun added to the lead with a five-hole goal to make it 2-0.

The game calmed down a bit after that, with both teams taking penalties but killing each one of them off.

The second period was played to a slower pace, with both teams failing to score.

But in the third, the Wolverines found some life with two goals in less than a minute.

First it was Carson Baptiste who was able to beat Carson Cherepak in front. Then 50 seconds later, Boston Bird on the breakaway put it over the pads of Cherepak to tie it up at two.

With plenty of intensity, the game went to the wire, but a scramble in front was able to go to Morris for the winner.

The Wolverines were able to get a powerplay for the remainder of the game after a Logan Calder unsportsmanlike penalty, but nothing came close to the net.

The Wolverines outshot the Kings 30-21, with Cherepak making 28 saves, and Brett Mirwald for the Wolverines making 18 saves.

For the Wolverines, they will be heading up north to take the OCN Blizzard on Tuesday.
