The Waywayseecappo Wolverines' moved into 5th place in the MJHL standings on Wednesday night after a 4-2 victory over the Swan Valley Stampeders' who dropped their 2nd straight.
After a scoreless first period, Gerrik Ripley got the Wolverines on the board just 98 seconds into the 2nd as Jack Kennedy's long point shot hit Ripley in front and would go over top of Stamps' G Parker Rey for his 10th of the season to make it 1-0.
Conrad Phillips added to their lead later in the period as he snapped it by Rey for his 24th of the season to make it a two goal game.
Leyson Coleman would bring his team within one late in the middle frame as he re-directed in his 11th of the year to make it a 2-1 Swan Valley deficit after 40 minutes.
The Wolverines' though would respond with a couple quick goals early in the 3rd from Brody Moffatt and Jacob Charko to put the Wolverines ahead by three.
Nathan Carl brought the Stamps' within two with 5:55 to go, but that's as close as they would get as they fell on the road.
Colin Ahern, in his 14th straight start made 36 saves on 38 shots to earn his 7th victory of the season while Stamps' Parker Rey made 22 saves in the loss.
The Stampeders' will return to action on Saturday night against the visiting the Steinbach Pistons while the Wolverines' return to action on Friday in Winkler against the Flyers.
