The Ripley Wolves put up a good fight, but the Clinton Radars are now four-time defending champions.

The Radars clinched the WOAA Senior AA championship with a 4-0 win in Clinton on Friday night, taking the series in five games. The Wolves fell behind early and battled hard, but Clinton was too strong on this night.

Though there’s no scoring to report, it must be said that Jason Hamilton had a huge night in net for the Wolves, stopping over 30 shots. As part of the trio that led the league in goals against average – sharing the honour with Kurt Edwards and Ryan MacDonald – Hamilton and his cohorts stood tall all season for the Wolves.

The Ripley Wolves executive thanks the coaches, trainers, fans, and sponsors for their support during this exciting season. We could not do it without your continued support.

And a huge thank you to the players for their commitment to the team and to putting their bodies on the line every weekend for our team. It has been an exciting season and we look forward to seeing you in 2019/20!

Wolves down 3-1 in final

Posted: March 31, 2019 in News and notes

The Ripley Wolves have a big hill to climb after a 5-2 loss on Sunday afternoon in front of another capacity home crowd.

They now trail the Clinton Radars 3-1 in the WOAA Senior AA final.

After an hour’s delay due to a regional power outage, Clinton scored two in each of the first two periods of this hard-hitting affair. Ripley made some adjustments that paid off quickly in the third, scoring just 14 seconds in, and adding another a couple of minutes later to give the home crowd life. But, a breakaway goal put Clinton up by three with 13 left in the third, and that’s how it finished.

Ripley’s goals were scored by Dan Nicoloff, from Ben Hughes, and Patrick Looby, shorthanded and unassisted.

Ryan MacDonald played the first 40 minutes in RIpley’s net and was excellent, but, in an attempt to spark the team entering the third, Jason Hamilton came into the net and was strong as well.

Ripley will look to stave off elimination on Friday night at 8:30 p.m. in Clinton. Game 6, if necessary, will be Saturday at 3 p.m. in Ripley, while Game 7 will be Sunday, in Clinton, at 4 p.m.
