Britton hat-trick leads Wolves to 5-4 win

Posted: December 20, 2015 in News and notes

The Ripley Wolves finished off a big weekend, coming back to beat the Saugeen Shores Winterhawks 5-4 on the road on Saturday night.

The two-win weekend leap-frogged the Wolves over Saugeen Shores and Shallow Lake and into third place in the North Division with 17 points. Facing a difficult January schedule, these were two huge wins for the locals.

Cody Britton led the way with a hat-trick in the win between the teams battling for fourth in the North Division standings. The Wolves scored three in the third – the winner by Brett Catto with less than two minutes left – after Ryan Armstrong tied it with five minutes remaining.

Assists went to Catto (3), Paul Stewart, Drew Davidson (2), Tyler McCarthy, Tyler deVos, Jeremy McQuillin and Britton.

Kurt Edwards faced 43 shots in the win. The remainder of the scoring details are unavailable at this time.

The Wolves are now off until 2016, when they travel to Lucknow on Saturday, Jan. 2, for a 7:30 p.m. start, followed by a rare Sunday afternoon home game vs Mapleton-Minto 81s. That game will feature the Ripley Tykes between periods, so don’t miss it!
