A completely different version of the N C Wolves on day two
by Randy Pascal
In the span of just 24 hours, the Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves managed to travel from one end of the team performance spectrum to the other
extreme. A 7-1 opening game loss to the Windsor Jr Spitfires Monday evening would stand in stark contrast to an impressive 6-0 whitewash of the Cornwall Colts
The local midgets wasted little time turning things around on the second day of the OHF Central Region Midget "AAA" Championships, receiving first
period goals from Joel Mongeon and Glenn Therrien and never looking back.
Both players would add their second tallies of the game on power plays later in the contest, joined on the scoresheet by Alex Rodrigue and
Brandon Atkins, while netminder Alex Vendette turned aside all 23 shots that he faced in recording the shutout.
The win leaves the Nickel Capital Wolves sitting in a tie for third place with the North Bay Trappers, chasing down the unbeaten Windsor Jr
Spitfires (2-0) and Mississauga Rebels (1-0-1).
The Oakville Rangers (0-1-1) find themselves one point back of the GNML (Great North Midget League) duo, while Cornwall (0-2) remains
search of their first win of the tournament.
Following is a recap of the games not involving the Sudbury squad that have been played to date:
North Bay Trappers 3 - Jake Gravelle, Ian Denomme, Ryan Mills
