Through the first ten games of the new season for the Waywayseecappo Wolverines, trailing at any point in a hockey game meant it was a loss. But on Friday night in Winnipeg, that changed.
The Wolverines came back from two two goal deficits to win 5-3 over the Winnipeg Blues.
The Wolverines used a four goal third period to get the much needed win in Winnipeg to get their first win over an East Division opponent this season.
Winnipeg got out to a 2-0 lead after the first period when Carter Demelo and Tyson Vouriot scored the goals on Jase Wareham.
The Wolverines got within one goal early in the second period, when Brendan Quinn-Lagria scored on a two-on-one with Ryan Jossy, to get his first MJHL goal of his career.
After a full period of control for the Wolverines, they weren’t able to beat River Leslie-Toogood for the remainder of the second frame, and near the end of the period, the Blues regained a two goal lead when Dawson Zeller scored five-hole with 21 seconds left.
But coming back in the third period, the Wolverines got two quick goals from Neo Kiemeney and Jesiah Bennett within 20 seconds of each other to tie the game.
At 9:27 into the period, Ben Roulette was able to sneak the puck five-hole through Leslie-Toogood to give the Wolverines thier first lead of the game.
Aiden Moser provided insurance for the Wolverines with 5:14 left in the game on the powerplay.
Jase Wareham got his first MJHL victory with a 24 save performance.
The game also had very little penalties, with the Wolverines getting three powerplay chances, but never going on the penalty kill in the game.
With the win, the Wolverines move to 6-5 on the season.
They next play on Saturday at home to the Dauphin Kings at 7:30pm.
