Wolves win and lose; now 2-2 on season

Posted: October 18, 2016 in News and notes

The Ripley Wolves again split last weekend’s games, coming back to beat Shelburne 6-4 before losing in Seaforth to Huron East 5-1 on Saturday.

Kurt Edwards got the win in Ripley’s net on Friday night and was outstanding, stopping 45 shots for the win.

The Wolves did all their damage on the powerplay, notching five goals with the extra man before Tyson Soers added an empty-netter to complete his hat-trick.

After falling behind 2-0 in the first, Brett Catto and Tyler Soehner scored on the powerplay at the beginning and the end of the second period respectively, leaving the Wolves down by one entering the third.

After Soehner, the Wolves newest defenceman, scored his second of the game early in the third, Soers took over, notching two powerplay goals just 17 seconds apart to give the Wolves a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

Assists went to Cody Britton (2), Soehner, Drew Davidson, Catto, Paul Stewart (2), Patrick Weijak (2), and Dylan Sayle.

Saturday night, the Wolves took a shorthanded squad to Seaforth and lost 5-1. The scoring line from that game is unavailable.

The Wolves travel to Durham on Friday for an 8:30 tilt, and trek down to Petrolia on Oct. 28 for an 8:30 start. They return home on Nov. 5 vs Clinton at 7:30 p.m. It’s Meet the Wolves Night, so bring the kids!
