Despite a lopsided loss to the Barrie Colts the day after the trade deadline last week, the Wolves have bounced back well, playing the Mississauga Steelheads hard on Friday night losing a close contest before ultimately holding the Owen Sound Attack off for a 2-1 win Sunday. The win was a rewarding one for players, coaches and fans because it demonstrated that the new look Wolves have the discipline and dedication to close out a tough game at the end of the weekend.
