Jr. B hockey Wolves gear up for showdown with Cats

Westshore carries five-game win streak into Wednesday game in Colwood

With a couple of big weekend wins under their belt and a five-game winning streak intact, the Westshore Wolves host the front-running Victoria Cougars on Wednesday (Oct. 7), starting at 7 p.m. at The Q Centre.

The Wolves (5-4-0-0), who dropped a 10-1 decision to the Cougars (6-1-1-0) in Esquimalt back on Sept. 17, are coming off a 6-2 win Saturday in Mill Bay over the Kerry Park Islanders.

Cory Hatcher paced the visitors with a three-goal performance in that game.

Also scoring in the win were Jesse Nixon, Marshall Brown and Kayden Peck, who also had an assist. Tomba Huddlestan and Branden Tangney had two assists each for the Wolves, who led 3-2 after two periods.

Chris Smith made 22 stops for the win in goal.

Westshore also won on the road last Friday in Saanich, where Leighton Williams kicked out all 27 shots he faced in a 3-0 Wolves victory. Tangney led the attack with a goal and two helpers, while Jacob Malloch and Peck also scored.

The Wolves began their game week last Wednesday with a 4-2 home win over Peninsula. Hatcher, Huddlestan, Cameron Kinsman and Tyson Malloch scored in the win.
