Wolves Midget Rep end season in Port Dover




The Shelburne Wolves Midget rep team ended their season on a high note - with a trip to the OMHA finals.
They ended the series with a 5–1 loss to Port Dover on Sunday (Mar. 22) that ended the best of five championship final series.
The Wolves had a terrific playoff run sweeping their opening round over Mariposa in three games then going on to the quarter-final and again were undefeated against Norwood.
Moving into the semi-final round the Wolves advanced to the final after winning in four games over South Bruce.
That set up the championship series with the Port Dover Pirates.
The championship round got underway on March 13, with the Pirates squeezing out the Wolves 5–4 in game one at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex.
Game two tied the series when the Wolves went to Port Dover on March 15, and left with a 3–1 win to make it even.
The series returned to Shelburne on Friday (Mar. 20) night for game three.
This game was an epic battle when the Pirates tied the game with 4:45 remaining then got the go-ahead goal with 2:32 left on the clock.
The first Wolves goal came from Jake Currie.
Showing their tenacity as a team, the Wolves battled back from a three goal deficit with Port Dover leading 4-1 in the second frame.
Nate Newmaster took the feed across the net in the second period to score Shelburne's second goal.
A scramble in front of the net ended with Jake Currie popping in the Wolves' third goal and his second of the game.
Shelburne forward Nate Newmaster tied the game at four with a beautiful shot to the top corner of the Port Dover net.
The final period was a battle to score and beat the clock.
Shelburne's Brandon Richardson got goal number five and with less than five minutes on the clock
It was again a tie game when the Pirates responded and scored to make it a 5–5 game.
The game ended with a Pirates goal with 2:32 left on the clock and the series returned to Port Dover for game four of the series.
The final game was a do-or-die for the Wolves who battled hard.
The final game loss gave the series and the championship to Port Dover.
