Wolves fall to Mapleton-Minto in overtime

Posted: January 4, 2015 in News and notes

The Ripley Wolves nearly upset the defending champions from Mapleton-Minto on Saturday night, settling for a point in an overtime loss.

The Wolves were tied 2-2 after the second on goals from Cody Britton and Drew Davidson, but the 81s took the lead in the third. Brett Catto tied it with just over three minutes left in the third to send the game to overtime.

Though Ripley’s goalie Jason Reid, who has resumed his Wolves career a few years after first retiring, played a great game and stopped 36 shots, the 81s scored early in the extra frame to secure the bonus point.

Assists went Catto, Davidson, Tyler McCarthy and Jeremy McQuillin.

The Wolves travel to Elora next Friday for an 8:30 p.m. start. They return home for two games on Jan. 16 and 17.
