Posted: October 26, 2015 in News and notes

The Ripley Wolves improved to 3-1-0 with a 5-3 win in Saugeen Shores on Friday night.

Mitch Campbell got the start in the Wolves net and was stellar, stopping 38 shots for his third win in his rookie season.

The Wolves jumped out to a 3-0 over the first 1 1/2 periods, with goals coming from Tyson Soers, Cody Britton and Jarred Colling (shorthanded). Assists went to Colling, Drew Davidson and Tyler de Vos.

Saugeen Shores closed to gap to 3-1 late in the second, but the Wolves’ Davidson responded quickly, from David Jones and Brett Catto, to give them a 4-1 edge heading into the third. Saugeen Shores tried to make it close in the third, closing the gap to 4-2 with 13 minutes remaining in the game, but Catto scored on the powerplay from Jeremy McQuillin to put the game out of reach.

The Winterhawks scored one more with seven minutes to go, but the Wolves defence shut them down from there en route to the 5-3 win.

The Wolves travel to Drayton to face Mapleton-Minto on Friday night. Game time is 8:30 p.m. They return home after nearly a month on the road next weekend, with a Friday night game against Durham at 8:30 p.m., and a Saturday, Nov. 7, tilt with Shallow Lake at 7:30 p.m.
