Wolverines take down top team in MJHL

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines got a big victory against the top team in the MJHL with a 4-1 win.

Carson Baptiste scored two goals and Tresor Wotton stopped 29 shots for the win.

The win moves the Wolverines to second place in the West Division, and is six points back of the first place OCN Blizzard.

In the first period, there was no scoring and the OCN Blizzard outshot Wayway by just one, 11-10. It was back and forth with both teams getting some Grade A chances.

The first goal scored in the game was by Caden Carlson shorthanded after a pass off the wall by Cole Carlson.

It took halfway through the third period for the next goal when Carson Baptiste picked up a rebound from a Boone Mathison shot. It was the first regular goal for Baptiste since his injury that took him out of a handful of games.

But OCN got one back off a bad angle shot from John Kremer that squeaked by Tresor Wotton.

But just over a minute later Kurt Rookes was able to put home a bouncing puck that made it 3-1 for the Wolverines.

Carson Baptiste later got an empty netter to make it 4-1 and seal it for Waywayseecappo.

Chase Hamm stopped 32 shots in the loss.

No one was able to convert on the powerplay, with both teams going 0/4. The Wolverines were able to get the shorthanded marker though.

The Wolverines won’t play again until next Friday when they take on the Winkler Flyers at 7:30pm on November 18th.
