In the second, there was no scoring, but the Wolverines killed off two penalties.

In the third, it was tight with both teams getting chances, but it was the Wolverines that got the go ahead goal by Caleb Petrie at 5:00 minutes left.

It wasn’t too long after, when the Wolverines got the insurance marker by Spencer Paplawski to ice the game at 3-1.

Liam Tereposky stopped 20 of 21 shots in the win, the puts the Wolverines one point back of Dauphin for first place in the West Division.
