Wolverines Win a Wild One

An up and down game in Waywayseecappo Sunday afternoon, with the Wolverines ending up with a 7-6 (SO) win over the visiting Selkirk Steelers.

Selkirk led 2-0 early in the first, but the Wolverines led 3-2 at the first intermission. Selkirk went back ahead 4-3, but again, Wayway came back, this time to tie it up, before the period was out (with 1 second left). They then pulled ahead 6-4 in the third, only to watch Selkirk score twice in the game's final 1:13 to force overtime.

Defenseman Zach Sweet scored the only goal of the shootout, while Brett Gagnon stopped all three Steelers he faced.

Some big days offensively for the Wolverines. Shane Goodrunning scored three times (9 on the season) and added one assist. Rookie Brett Pinkerton had 1g-3a, Ashley Howie had 1g-1a, Dave Williams set up a pair, while Jordan Hirano added his first as a Wolverine. Stephane Robidoux also picked up an assist, as the 19 year old defenseman made his way back to the Wolverines from the Portland Winterhawks in time for their two home games this weekend.

Shots on goal were 42-32 for Selkirk.

Wayway's now 5-1-1 in their last 7, and are off until Saturday when they host Neepawa. The Wolves and Natives are now tied for 5th in the Sherwood with 13 points each. Wayway's record is now 5-6-3.
