The hockey spirit is alive & well for the Peewee Rep Wolves in Shelburne!
In the C Pool
round robin series the Shelburne Wolves tied the Oro Thunders with a final record of
4-1-1 leaving both teams with 9 points a piece and a spot in the final series to claim
the 1st place banner!
First game of the series saw the Wolves travel to Oro. It started with a quick goal by Oro, followed by 3 more unanswered goals. The score was looking glum, until forward Cam Green scored 2 goals close together in the 2nd period. The Wolves felt the intensity and pressed Oro by scoring 2 more from our blue liners Tyler O'Neil and Griffin St. Pierre, but that wasn't enough to win as Oro also netted another 2 leaving them the victors with a final score of 6-4.
The Wolves were back in Oro and both teams came out strong leaving the 1st period scoreless. Going into the 2nd period, the Wolves were caught off-guard again with the 1st goal scored by the Thunders. The team knew it would be tough, but victory was in sight when Griffin St.Pierre scored our 1st goal to tie the game. Tensions ran high in the 3rd period with both teams vying for the coveted winning goal. This nail bitter went into overtime and had both sides fighting for the puck! With minutes to go and a scrum in front of the Thunders net, the Wolves pocketed the winning goal, scored by Cam Green assisted by Griffin Ladner. This win was a total team effort from start to finish with C W Coop leading the pack in net and Coach Tom guiding the Wolf pack from the bench.

"Victory isn't defined by wins or losses,
It is defined by effort - if you can truthfully say
"I did the best I could, I gave everything I had"
Than you're a winner!"
