Wolverines lose hard fought battle in Niverville

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines lost their first game at the Niverville Recreation Centre by a score of 3-2.

The two teams exchanged goals throughout the night, but the Nighthawks came out on top.

In the first period, there was no scoring, but the Wolverines thought they had one early on. The goal was disallowed though after the referee said the net was off its moorings.

In the second period, it went off with both teams scoring two goals.

It started with Brendan Bottem scoring his 13th of the year on a breakaway to get the icebreaker.

The Wolverines tied it up later in the period though when Carson Baptiste walked in and went bar down to tie it all up at 1.

Niverville got the lead back less than a minute later when Josh Paulhus walked in and got a powerplay goal by putting it over the glove of Tresor Wotton.

But the Wolverines tied it up once again just over a minute and a hlaf later when Andrew Boucher knocked in a rebound on the powerplay to tie it up heading into the second intermission.

The Nighthawks got the final lead of the night when Braden Panzer was able to get out in front of Wotton and slide a powerplay goal to make it 3-2.

All the Wolverines final efforts couldn’t come to fruition and Niverville got a full two points.

The Nighthawks were able to get two powerplay goals on the night, while the Wolverines scored on one of their attempts.

The two teams will play again on Saturday night in Waywayseecappo at 7:30pm at the Waywayseecappo Arena.
