Wolves off to rough start after dropping two more on weekend

Posted: October 27, 2014 in News and notes

It wasn’t the start the revamped Ripley Wolves were looking for to start the season.

The Wolves dropped another two games this weekend – 7-5 in Shelburne and 7-2 to Mapleton-Minto – to enter November with a disappointing 1-4 start.

Scoring for Ripley in Shelburne was Travis VanGaver, Nick Locking, Jeremy McQuillin, Corey McCrae and Drew Davidson. Assists went to Josh MacDonald, Cody Britton (2), McQuillin, Davidson, Paul Stewart (2) and VanGaver (2).

Kurt Edwards gave up three in the first period and was replaced by Jamie Bailey in the second. Bailey stopped 19 of the 23 shots he faced.

On Sunday, the Wolves hosted the defending champs from Mapleton-Minto and were roughed up 7-2.
Wolves scorers were Jarred Colling and Britton, with goalie Edwards getting an assist, as did Brett Catto and Brian Stanley.

The Wolves travel to Lucknow on Saturday, Nov. 1, for an 8 p.m. start. The first game between these rivals was a tough, back-and-forth affair, so it will be worth the trip to the south side of the township.

Don’t forget about Friday night’s Halloween Dance, featuring The Mudmen. Tickets are $20 and there will be prizes for best costume! Tickets can be purchased in advance at Ripley Variety or at the door
