Just 24 hours after the Steelers shutout the Wolverines 3-0, the two teams will battle once again on Friday night during the rematch at the Waywayseecappo Arena Complex.
For three straight periods, there wasn’t too much flow to the game as Selkirk did a great job of keeping the Wolverines out of dangerous scoring areas.
Selkirk managed to add single goals in all three periods and never waivered from their game plan.
Some bad blood boiled over midway through the third period when a scuffle in front of the Steelers net took place.
Down 2-0 in the third, Kris Bladen hit the post and came close to bringing the Wolverines within one. Instead, the Steelers scored on the empty net after Ahern was pulled for the extra attacker.
After a chippy finish to Thursdays’ contest, there’s no doubt it should be an even more intense game when these two clubs meet once again on Friday night.
News and Notes
Despite Thursday nights’ loss to the Steelers, the Wolverines managed to hold their fifth-place position in the standings with a one-point lead on Virden.
