Wolves Attack Early….And Often!
Submitted By Mike Radatus on Tue 11 29, 22
The first period was not even half over before the London Jr Knights White took a timeout to try and cool off the Waterloo Wolves. The Wolves jumped to an early 3-0 lead. By the time the period was over Jacob Reid-Brant had already worked in his new pair of skates and recorded a hattrick.

The Wolves continued to attack all night and forced run time in the third period and earned a 7 to 3 win in London.

Reid-Brants first goal was on the penalty kill and unassisted. Caleb Cummings had assists on Reid-Brants other two goals and Tyler O’Hearn had an assist on second goal. Cole Hunsberger wasn’t going to be outdone and also recorded the hattrick. Unlike Reid-Brant, Hunsberger decided to spread his goals out with one in each period. His first goal was from Matthew Ball and Matthew Anderson, his second from Connor Palmer and Ball and his third from Ball. Cullen Derry added a goal from Hunsberger and Anderson.

Mitch Simmons played back-to-back games and saw some good action helping the Wolves kill off 15 minutes in penalties and an odd finish were the Knights pulled their goalie on the powerplay despite being down five goals.

There was some much-improved play in the defensive zone led by Yianni Peppas, Carson Bernhardt and Tate Merritt. This improvement was also possible because forwards like Griffin Beddis, Cole Ledgister and Ryan Beckner made sure to support the defenders and make it a priority the zone was looked after before anything on offense was considered.

The Wolves now have a week off from games due to the unfortunate cancellation of a tournament. With the break the team will address some issues in their play in practice and hope to resume games with a full roster for the first time this season. Declan Uniac, Jackson McNichol, Ben Pendleton and Jake Patterson should all be ready to return and give the Wolves the depth they planned to have at the start of the season.

Go Wolves!
