The Sudbury Wolves ended a busy weekend in Guelph on Sunday afternoon as they took on the Storm. The Storm proved to be more than the Wolves could handle, as the Wolves fell in a 5-1 final with shots on goal 34-31 in favour of Guelph.
It was a solid first period for the Wolves as they kept the Storm off the scoresheet in a scoreless opening period. Marshall Frappier got the start for the Wolves in net, making 11 saves total through the period.
An onslaught of goals came from the Storm in the second period as they scored five times to take a 5-1 lead heading into the second intermission. The Guelph goal scorers included Isaac Ratcliffe, Cam Hillis (2), Liam Hawel, and Nate Schnarr. The Wolves netted a power play goal six minutes into the period when Macauley Carson scored his first of the season in his third game back after returning from a broken wrist. Carson’s goal was assisted by Troy Lajeunesse and Dmitry Sokolov.
The Wolves made a goaltender change to start the third period as Jake McGrath took to the net. It was a battle in the third period, as the Wolves had four power play opportunities but could not find any answers in solving Anthony Popovich. The Wolves out-shot the Storm 12-5 in the period but fell by a 5-1 final.
