Wolves strike quickly and hold on for a big win
Submitted By Steve Loffree on Wed 02 27, 13
Our crosstown rivals from Kitchener paid a visit to Albert McCormick, with the Wolves looking to extend a new winning streak...

On Sunday Februay 17th the Wolves had the home ice advantage against the Kitchener Jr Rangers. Chris takes the start in net, and after a confusing, random buzzer just after the first puck drop, the game is underway. The Wolves win the draw and immediately go deep in the Kitchener zone. Xavier gets control of it, doesn't have an opening, passes up to Josh who rips one at the net, and CLANG! Off the post it goes and into the net! This has long become a Waterloo classic move - score the first goal within the first minute, and force the opposing team to spend the rest of the game catching up.

The play resumes, and just a couple of minutes later defenceman Ian finds himself behind the Kitchener goalie. He takes a look, then a shot, and IN IT GOES!  A nice little goal off the back of the goalie, making this a 2-0 game for Waterloo at the end of the first period.

In the second, Kitchener goes on a dangerous-looking odd-man rush into the Waterloo end. They're looking for an opportunity, and they throw a high lofter of a shot over Chris' shoulder and in, making this a 2-1 game. Later in the period, the Waterloo forwards put together a nice looking play. Braden sends the puck up to Tristan, Tristan goes long, then a drop pass to Xavier, but can't get the shot.

In the third, we see mayhem in front of Emmett. A save, another save, a Kitchener player goes down, he looks hurt, but where's the whistle? The play continues, and the Kitchener man limps off to the bench. Late in the period, Kitchener comes at Waterloo hard. They pull their goalie with 42 seconds left, but to no avail. Waterloo wins a nail-biter 2 to 1.
