Wolves sweep Shelburne
The Ripley Wolves have advanced to the second round of the Senior AA playoffs after a 9-2 win in Game 4 of their opening series against Shelburne.
Brett Catto celebrated the Tuesday birth of his new daughter with a four-goal outburst on Friday night – including a natural hat-trick in the second period – as the Wolves' constant pressure wore down the short bench of the Muskies before the floodgates opened for the home side.
Other goal scorers were Tyson Soers, Alex Kuntz, Jarrett Kuntz, Keaton Willis and Dan Nicoloff. Assists went to Derek Skinner (5), Cody Britton (4), Nick Seiler (2), Robert White, Logan Swanton, Willis and Nicoloff.
Jason Hamilton got the win in the Wolves' net.
The Wolves will start Round 2 at home on Sunday, Feb. 27, at 5:30 p.m. vs either Tavistock or Clinton. Clinton is down 3-2 in their first round series vs Mapleton-Minto, while Tavistock dispatched Saugeen Shores in six.
