Wolverines lose on last minute goal

The best game by the Wolverines in a couple week didn’t get the team any points, as the Steinbach Pistons scored a last minute 3-2 win.

Ty Paisley scored with 54.6 seconds left on the clock, on a powerplay goal, to give the Pistons the go-ahead goal and the full two points.

After a first period of no scoring, the Wolverines got on the board in the second period when it was Leyton Smith scoring at 13:07 on the powerplay, from Carson Baptiste and Boone Mathison.

The Pistons outshot the Wolverines 16-6 in the second period.

The Pistons got on the board quickly in the third period though, when Parker Jasper fired a shot from the point to tie the game just 3:25 into the period.

Not much time afterwards, Leo Chambers batted the puck out of mid air to give the Pistons a powerplay goal and give Steinbach their first lead of the hockey game.

The Wolverines tied it up later in the powerplay when Cody Blight received a feed from Carson Baptiste to tie the game up with 8:26 left to go in regulation.

But after killingĀ  a penalty a few minutes before, the Wolverines couldn’t do it again when Paisley scored the game winner.

Marek Andres stopped 36 shots in the loss, while Dominik Wasik stopped 25 in the win.

The Wolverines will next play on Tuesday when they host the Dauphin Kings in a big West Division showdown at 7:30pm, with plenty of playoff implications.
