Late goal sinks Wolves in Game 3

Posted: March 10, 2019 in News and notes

The Ripley Wolves couldn’t hold a two-goal lead and lost Game 3 in Durham by a 3-2 score on Saturday night.

The Wolves jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first on goals from Brett Catto and Tyson Soers. Assists went to Cody Britton, Gerrit Satosek and Dylan Sayle.

That was it for offence for the visitors though, as Durham chipped away with a goal in the second and one midway through the third on Wolves netminder Ryan MacDonald. Then, with just 1:47 left on the clock, Durham took their first lead of the game, which they would not relinquish.

Durham now leads the series 2-1, with Game 4 being held today, Sunday, March 10, at 6:30 p.m. in Ripley. It’s part of a huge day of hockey at the Ripley Arena, with the Atom Rep OMHA semi-final at 2:30 p.m. (lead series five points to three in a race to six), Novice Rep WOAA playoffs at 3:30 p.m., and a Bantam Rep WOAA game at 4:30 p.m., followed by the Wolves.

Today’s game is sponsored by the Nuclear Waste Management Organization.
