Wolverines Look To Wrap Up Home-and-Home Series Against Natives

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines will travel to Neepawa on Saturday night, looking for a sweep of their home and home series against the Natives.

On Friday night in Waywayseecappo, the Wolverines led the Natives 3-1 in the second period before Neepawa would score twice in the last nine minutes of the period to send the game into the third period all tied at 3-3.

After some back and forth action in the third period solved nothing, the two clubs would need overtime.

2:29 into the extra frame, Jack Kennedy hit Rayman Bassi with a breakout pass. Bassi skated down the right-wing and held onto the puck before snapping it over the shoulder of Michael Davis to lift the Wolverines to a 4-3 win over the Natives.
