Wolverines get first OT Win of Year

Waywayseecappo survived a scare against a team with only two wins all year, by beating the Freeze 5-4 in overtime.

Waywayseecappo was up 3-1 in the third, but let the lead get away from them, but was able to put that behind them for a Carson Baptiste goal at 3:18 in OT.

The Wolverines started the scoring with a powerplay goal, when Andrew Boucher got the rebound in front and was able to shovel it into an empty net.

The Freeze tied it by the end of the period, with a goal 17 seconds left in the first, when Tristen Bear got the last touch on a 3-on-1 with Nathan Lenoski and Elliot Perrault, and put it past Lochlan Gordon.

In the second period, the only goal was scored by Leyton Smith who was able to slap in a long rebound to make it 2-1. The goal was created off a chance by Cole Carlson who brought in tight to the Freeze netminder.

In the third period, it went all crazy.

Nolan Grier scored five minutes into the period to put the Wolverines up 3-1.

But in a span of 40 seconds, the Freeze scored two. the First was scored by Nathan Lenoski, and the second was Aiden Dufault who scored on the powerplay.

The game looked destined for overtime, but the Wolverines scored what they thought would be the game winner when KurtĀ  Rookes got one past the netminder.

But with 46 seconds left, Aiden Dufault scored from the point to make it 4-4.

In overtime, the Wolverines got a man advantage after Brayden Stevenson got called for hooking. On the powerplay, Carson Baptiste put a deke on Michael O’Sullivan to send the Wolverines home happy.

The Wolverines outshot the Freeze 43-31 in the game, and were 2/6 on the powerplay. Winnipeg was 1/4 with the man advantage.

The Wolverines next game will be against Portage on home ice on Tuesday at 7:30pm.
