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

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.
