Wolves’ offence explodes vs. Panthers

Westshore squad first in early season Junior B hockey standings

Kyle Richter scored twice and Duncan Cochrane had a goal and two assists to lead the Westshore Wolves to an 8-2 rout of the Peninsula Panthers in a penalty filled Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League game Friday in North Saanich.

The win improved the South Division-leading Wolves’ record to 2-0, following a 5-2 win over Kerry Park last Wednesday.

Westshore goalie Riley Welyk stopped 24 of 26 shots for the victory. Other Wolves  goals came from Tyler Smith, Nicholas Polomark, Chase O’Keefe, Cory Hatcher and Brett Carpendale.

Westshore went four-for-12 on the power play while the Panthers scored just twice – both goals came from Rylan Ball – in 17 power play opportunities.

The Wolves take on the Saanich Braves on Wednesday (Sept. 10) at The Q Centre. Game time is 7 p.m.
