The OCN Blizzard suffered back to back losses again this weekend as the Waywayseecappo wolverines swept the series.
Friday’s game in Waywayseecappo started off better than the previous weekend, with no goals from either team during the 1st period.
The OCN Blizzard opened up the 2nd period with the first goal of the night, scored a minute and 48 seconds into the period by Brett Tataryn, assisted by Riley Zimmerman and Michael Hlady. This was short lived however as the period wrapped up with a final score of 2-1 for the Wolverines.
Into the third period the Blizzard came back with a vengeance, tying the game with a goal scored by Dain Sardelli, assisted by Drayden Kurbatoff a minute and 18 seconds into the period. The tie game was short lived as the Wolverines Boston Bird would score 3 minutes and 18 seconds into the period, setting the momentum for the eventual 7-2 win over the OCN Blizzard.
Sunday’s game on home Ice had a much different tone for the Blizzard. Starting with another early goal scored by Dain Sardelli, his second of the weekend.
Into the second period the Blizzard briefly pulled ahead from the Wolverines with a pair of goals scored by Riley Zimmerman and Hunter Rambow. After a pair of penalties the Wolverines took advantage of a 3 on 5, tying the game and later pulling ahead during another 3 on 5 in the final minutes of the period.
The 3rd period nearly gave the Blizzard an opportunity to go into overtime after William Irvine, a name new to fans but not new to the OCN Blizzard scored his first goal of the season assisted by Drayden Kurbatoff. Irvine has been off the ice since the beginning of the season due to a broken arm suffered during hockey camp. The goal would result in the pulling of OCN goalie Nik Jerris in an attempt to tie the game at 5 all heading into the final minutes of the 3rd period. Unfortunately the only goal scored as a result would be against the OCN Blizzards now empty net resulting in a final score of 4-6 for the Waywayseecappo Wolverines.
Final score of the series 4-0 for the Waywayseecappo Wolverines.
