Wolves move to 4-0 with huge win over Saugeen Shores

Posted: October 21, 2012 in News and notes

It may just be the biggest regular season win in the 10 years since the Ripley Wolves returned to the WOAA Sr. A league.

The Wolves downed the two-time defending champion Saugeen Shores Winterhawks by a 4-2 score on Saturday night at the Ripley arena, moving the Wolves to a 4-0 record and first place in the North Division. The Winterhawks lost for the second time this weekend, after losing only once all of last season and sweeping through the playoffs on their way to the championship.

Kurt Edwards was stellar in the Wolves net, facing 45 shots on his way to his third win of the season. Combined with Senior A rookie Tom Church, the Wolves appear to be as strong as they’ve been between the pipes in years.

Wolves goals were scored by Ryan Armstrong, Brian Stanley on the powerplay, Travis VanGaver and Nick Locking into the empty net to seal the victory. Assists went to Derek Regier, Paul Stewart, Curt Robinson and Locking.

The Wolves also welcomed former Walkerton Hawks captain Andy Cline, a Teeswater native, to their roster on the weekend, which adds another offensive weapon to an already formidable front end.

The Wolves now have a week off to enjoy this victory and will look to build off it when they travel to Shelburne on Nov. 2, in a rematch of last year’s wildly entertaining six-game playoff series, which Shelburne won. The Wolves return home on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m., against Elora for Minor Hockey Night, where young fans get in free if they wear their team’s jersey.

The game will be sponsored by the Ripley Legion.
