Nick Guiney of the Westshore Wolves fires a shot on Peninsula goalie Jacob Krupp

Wolves hold down first after two more wins

Rematch against Oceanside Generals goes tonight at The Q Centre

The only blemish on the Westshore Wolves’ 2014-15 Vancouver Island Hockey League record will no doubt come up in conversation tonight (Sept. 24) at The Q Centre.

The junior B Wolves (6-1-0) host the Oceanside Generals, the lone team to beat the South Division leaders this season, starting at 7 p.m.

That was back on Sept. 13. The game saw Westshore erase a 4-1 Oceanside lead in the third period, but fall short in a 4-3 loss.

Since then, the Wolves have recorded two more wins, 4-3 in overtime against the Kerry Park Islanders in Mill Bay on Saturday, and 6-2 over the Peninsula Panthers last week on home ice.

The OT victory saw Wolves scoring leader Kyle Richter steal the puck just over a minute into the extra frame and beat Islander goalie Leighton Williams for the winner.

It was the visitors’ third straight goal and capped a comeback from a 3-1 deficit Kerry Park built after two periods.

Tyler Smith scored twice for the Wolves, who trailed 2-1 after the first period. Connor Krupa started the comeback with a goal 2:45 into the third.

Against the Panthers, Richter led the way with a pair of goals, while Drayson Pears had a goal and an assist. Other goal scorers included Cory Hatcher, Tomba Huddlestan and Jacob Malloch.

The Wolves held period leads of 2-0 and 5-0 before the Panthers got on the board with goals from Cole Glover and Grayden Hohl.
