Just a few minutes later, Brody Moffatt took a pass in the slot and ripped it over the shoulder of Steelers Goaltender, Levi Mitchell to give the Wolverines a 2-0 lead 7:29 into the first.

With the Wolverines on a powerplay, Brayden Clark would capitalize and get a short-handed marker past Thomson Phinney to cut the Wolverines lead in half at 2-1.

While there was no scoring in the second period, it was a parade to the penalty box with seven minor penalties between the two clubs.

In the third, the Wolverines would find their groove. Kris Bladen would score his second goal in as many games for the Wolverines to give the Wolverines their two-goal lead back at 3-1. Alex Lucken and Rayman Bassi would pick up the helpers on the scoring play.

Four minutes after the Wolverines scored, Riley Portner would tip one past Phinney to bring the Steelers back within one.

Just after the third-period media timeout, Kris Bladen would take a beautiful feed from Conrad Phillips to score his second of the night which gave the Wolverines a 4-2 lead. Rayman Bassi would pick up his fourth point of the night with the secondary assist.

Selkirk would pull Mitchell to get out the extra attacker and Anthony Bilka would pot an empty netter to give the Wolverines a 5-2 lead and close the game with a victory.

Now 10-4-2-1 on the season, Waywayseecappo sits first place in the MJHL. Next up for the Wolverines is a date with the OCN Blizzard on Thursday night at 7:30.
