Wolverines hold on for win against Titans

Jase Wareham had a boring start to the game on Saturday night, only seeing 12 shots come his way through the first two periods, but he had to stop almost all of the 19 he faced in the third period.

Wareham stopped 29 shots to help the Wolverines hold on to a 4-2 win over the Neepawa Titans.

The Wolverines got out to a 4-0 lead through much of the first two periods, but ran out of gas for the last 23 minutes of the game and was in survival mode.

The scoring started much later than it did back on Friday night in Dauphin, as Jack Clarke scored on the powerplay from a nice pass across by Garett Zasitko.

A couple minutes later, it was Thomas Kaufield with a nice goal by slipping by a Neepawa defender to make it 2-0.

In the second period, Zasitko scored a goal from the point on the powerplay.

Then later on it was Neo Kiemeney getting his 8th goal of the season on another powerplay goal, making it three powerplay goals for the Wolverines in the contest.

Before the end of the period though, the Titans got on the board, with Kyle Weisgarber scoring to make it 4-1.

In the third period, Mason Hartley scored his seventh goal of the year on the powerplay to make it 4-2.

The Titans pushed the rest of the game, putting up 19 shots over the third period, but wasn’t able to get another past the Wolverines defence and Wareham.

In total, the Wolverines outshot the Titans 44-31.

The Wolverines next game will be on Tuesday when they head to Winnipeg and take on the Freeze.
