Wolverines' snap 6 game slide with 3-2 SO win over Swan Valley

The Wayway Wolverines were able to get their 4th win of the season and snap their 6 game losing streak in the process as they slipped by the Swan Valley Stampeders 3-2 in the shootout on Wednesday night. 

After getting off to a very slow start to their first period last night the Stamps would start off this game with a bang as just 1:14 into it Michael Fortin would bang home his 2nd of the season to give Swan an early 1-0 lead. But just 3:04 later, Wolverine captain Alex Keena's side angle shot would slip through Stamps' goalie Zach Degraves for his team leading 7th to tie things up at 1-1 after 40 minutes. Shots on goals 12-9 SV.

In the 2nd period, just a short time in Josh Tripp would get his 5th of the season for the Stamps to give the home team a 2-1 lead. But just 58 seconds later, the Wolverines would tie it up as Rivers product Brock Paddock would slap home his 2nd of the young MJHL season to even things up again at 2-2.

After a scoreless 3rd period and overtime the game would head to a shootout.
