The Waywayseecappo Wolverines definitely did not forget how to score goals.
The team bounced back from an embarrassing 9-0 loss in Winkler, to beat the Swan Valley Stampeders 7-5 in an afternoon game as hundreds of school kids from around the Parkwest area came to the game.
Thomas Kaufield led the way for the Wolverines with his first two goals of the season. There were six different goal scorers for Waywayseecappo in the game.
The Stampeders nearly came back a couple times, getting within one goal in the second period, but it was as close as they could get, losing their second game to the Wolverines this season.
The scoring started early when Owen Pringle scored just 1:04 into the contest. It was his first goal of the season.
But remarkably, that was the only goal of the first, with the Wolverines leading the shots 12-8.
But the second is where it went nuts, with both teams scoring a combined seven goals.
Lucas Perry scored his first goal of his junior career just two minutes into the period.
Then Garett Zasitko scored a poweprlay goal, getting his first goal as a Wolverine.
The Stampeders answered back when Josh Danis scored just a minute after Zasitko’s goal.
The Wolverines regained a three goal lead when Thomas Kaufield received a pass from Jesiah Bennett from behind the net, to beat Liam Vanderkooi.
The Stampeders then got a burst of offence as Alex Walicki and Landen Gulutzen scoring within 13 seconds of each other, making it a one goal game.
They didn’t have much time to savour the one-goal deficit though, as Sean Williams scored for the Wolverines with just 31 seconds left to go in the second.
In the third, Thomas Kaufield scored his second of the game at 6:52 of the period, with a nice move around the Stamps defence and goaltender.
Swan got within two again when Ashton Fishley was able to pick a corner on Marek Andres.
The Stampeders nearly got within one goal again, but a goal that would’ve been scored by Jakob Jones was waived off because of an interference call that was called because he slashed the stick out from a Wolverines defender.
On the ensuing powerplay, Owen Wheatley skated from end to end to get his first of the season.
The Stampders got another from Trey Sauder, but that’s where the comeback ended.
The Wolverines were 2/6 on the powerplay in the game, and Marek Andres stopped 24 of 29 shots in the game for the win.
The Wolverines next game will be on Friday when they head to Winnipeg for a game against the Winnipeg Blues.
