There has been no word yet on when the make-up game in Durham will be played, due to Friday night’s ice malfunction.

The Ripley Wolves were down after one period in Durham last night and the Hockey Gods must not have been happy about it, because an ice malfunction soon caused the cancellation of the game.

The game will be re-played in its entirety at a later date, and all scores and stats are thrown out.

Tonight, the Wolves host Elora at 7 p.m. It’s Tyke Night, so the future Wolves will be playing a game between periods. There is also a special giveaway for the kids at tonight’s game, so don’t miss this one!

Wolves beat Winterhawks 4-2

Posted: December 23, 2018 in News and notes

The Ripley Wolves withstood a barrage of hits and chippy play on their way to a 4-2 win over the Saugeen Shores Winterhawks on Saturday night, in Kincardine.

The Wolves got goals from Nick Seiler and Garrett Meurs (2), as well as an empty netter from Nick Locking, while Jason Hamilton was stellar in net as Ripley took two points in what can only be described as a throw-back game. The Winterhawks clearly had a game plan to hit anything that moved, and took all the rope the refs provided them, during the highly entertaining game.

Assists went to Tyson Soers (2), Mike Osadca, Jeff Alcombrack and Locking.

The Wolves head to Durham on Jan. 4, for an 8:30 p.m. start, and then host Elora on Saturday, Jan. 5, at 7 p.m. It’s Tyke Night, and sponsored by the Best Western Governor’s Inn and Presto Crest.
