Wolves miss out on two big points in loss to lowly Lucknow

Posted: January 14, 2013 in News and notes

The Ripley Wolves’ time in second place lasted less than 24 hours.

After catching the Shelburne Muskies in the standings after Friday night’s win, the Wolves needed to beat last place Lucknow to keep pace for second overall in the WOAA Sr. A North Division after the Muskies beat Durham in overtime Saturday night. With 24 points separating Ripley and their cross-township rivals, this shouldn’t have been a problem.

But Lucknow gets full credit for playing the spoiler in a 5-4 win on their home ice. The game was tight throughout, entering the third period tied 4-4.

Goal scorers for Ripley were Devin Kemp, Alex MacLeod, Ryan Armstrong and Darrin MacDonald. Assists went to Blair Pollock, Tyler deVos, Chad Colling, Kenny Stanley, Mark Stanley, Armstrong and MacDonald.

Tom Church took the loss in the Wolves net.

The Wolves will continue to battle for playoff positioning this weekend, when they travel to Durham, which currently sits in fifth place, five points back of the Wolves (and four back of Saugeen Shores for fourth).
