Wolverines finally get one against Virden

It was almost a full year in the making, but the Wolverines have beat the Virden Oil Capitals.

And it wasn’t a one-goal game this time either.

The Wolverines won 4-1 over Virden, snapping a nine game losing streak to the team, in which every game was a one goal game.

In the first period, there was no scoring between the two teams. The shots were completely even at ten a piece.

In the second period, the goal finally started coming, but it didn’t until seven minutes left in the period. It was when Nolan Grier came off the left side and wired it past Owen LaRocque to make it 1-0.

Just two and a half minutes later, it was Boone Mathison who tipped it off a Leyton Smith shot to make it 2-0.

But the Oil Capitals responded after a missed interference call, and capitalized when Nolan Chastko put it in a wide open net when the puck came out to the slot.

In the third period, the Wolverines got a powerplay goal by Leyton Smith when he fired it in from the point to put the game away.

Ben Roulette really put it away with an empty net goal moments later to make it the final, 4-1.

After a tight first two period, it was all Wolverines in the third with a 18-6 shot differential.

Tresor Wotton stopped 28 shots in the win.

The Wolverines will next take on the Steinbach Pistons on Thursday night on home ice before going on a three game road trip to the opposite sides of the province.
