The Injured Returning and a Debut Appearance Help Result in a Win for the OCN Blizzard

The OCN Blizzard ended a 7 game loosing streak when they hosted the Neepawa Titans on Friday.


With the return of players like Aaron Lorenz and Amraj Gil who had spent time recovering from injuries the OCN Blizzard emergred victorious with a final score of 6-3 against the titans.


The Blizzard set the pace late into the first period when Hunter Rambow scored the first goals of the night and only goal of the first period 13:27 in, assisted by Isiah Kinnvanthong and Ryland Kuczek.


Brock MacDonald scored two goals nearly a minute appart in the second half of the second period. Ashton Paul came in with the assist for the first goal followed by Aaron Lorenz for the second.


After a nasty hit left the Blizzard without star forward Riley Zimmerman, the OCN Blizzard came at the Titans with a vengance. With multiple close shots on Titans goalie Gavin Renwick even as Zimmermans penalty was still being served. Unfortunately for the Blizzard none of these shots resulted in a goal.


Cameron Trimble scored the first goal of the night for the titans during a power play late into the period. With both teams winding down and ready for intermission Drew Peters came in with an unassisted goal during the final 39 seconds of the 2nd period with a final score of 4-1 for the Blizzard.


Rylan Gudnason and Cameron Trimble with his second goal began the third period for the Titans nearly tying the game durring the first 3 minutes of play into the third perod leaving the score at 4-3 for the Blizzard. However the near tie was short lived thanks to a goal scored by Aaron Lorenz and assisted by Amraj Gil. Guerin Apperley's first goal of the season wrapped up the night for the team, assisted by Brock MacDonald and Aaron Lorenz.


Of course, the game could have looked much different for the Blizzard had it not been for a fantastic debut appearance by former Melford Mustangs goalie Steven Bacovsky. With all eyes on him Steven stopped a whopping 45 of 48 shots on net compared to the Blizzards 38 shots against Neepawa.

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.
