Posted: January 24, 2017 in News and notes

The Ripley Wolves will play in the AA playoffs against the other top teams in the WOAA Senior A League.

Where they’ll finish will be decided after their make-up game on Saturday, Jan. 28, in Clinton, at 8:30 p.m.

The Wolves fell 6-2 to first place Saugeen Shores Winterhawks on Friday night but had a huge win against Shallow Lake at home on Saturday, 9-2.

Scorers in Port Elgin were Devin Kemp, from Shawn Stewart, and Drew Davidson, from Brett Catto and Blair Pollock.

Kurt Edwards made 30 saves in the loss.

Eight different Wolves dented the twine against Shallow Lake, with Tyler Soehner, Dan Nicoloff, Jarred Colling (2), Catto, Kemp, Tyson Soers, Cody Britton and Jordan Turcotte scoring. Assists went to Catto (3), Patrick Weijak, Colling, Tyler de Vos (2), Turcotte (2), Davidson, Soehner, Ryan Armstrong (2), Stewart, Britton, Ryan Dudgeon, Soers and Hayden Allen.

Mitch Campbell stopped 28 shots for the win.

The Wolves are tied for fifth with Durham with 23 points, but are only one point up on seventh and eighth place Tillsonburg and Clinton. They could finish anywhere from fourth to eighth, depending on how the games play out this weekend.
