Wolves play two at home this weekend

Posted: January 14, 2015 in News and notes

After being snowed out last weekend, the Ripley Wolves will have two home games this weekend, as it looks to climb into top spot in the WOAA Senior ‘A’ Division.

The team, which will be seeded in the bottom half of the North Division and play for the ‘A’ Division title (as opposed to ‘AA’), are just two points back of Shallow Lake for the top seed in the just-announced, six-team round-robin playoff format, which will bring two teams from the WOAA’s South Division into the fold. Each team will play five games and the Top 4 teams will advance to a seven-game semi-final series, with the winners playing for the Senior ‘A’ title in April.

If the Wolves can catch Shallow Lake, they’ll have home ice advantage through the Senior A playoffs. They start on that quest this weekend when they host Shelburne at 8:30 p.m., and Saturday, Jan. 17, when Saugeen Shores comes to town for a 7:30 p.m. start. Sponsors are Parrish & Heimbecker on Friday and Pollock Electric and Royal Bank Ripley on Saturday night.

Saturday is also Tyke Night so come on out and watch the stars of tomorrow between periods!

The Wolves will hold their final home game on Saturday, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m. vs Shallow Lake. This is Wall of Fame Night, as well as Sponsor Appreciation Night. Stay tuned for more details on this year’s inductees. The make-up game in Elora will be held the Jan. 30 weekend, with the playoff round-robin starting the first weekend in February.
