The Blues topped the No. 1 Waywayseecappo Wolverines 2-1 after a spectacular third period and a solid performance from netminder Jack Branby.
After going scoreless through two periods, Kelton Sutherland found the back of the net halfway through the third. Two Wolverines were in the penalty box, and the Blues took advantage of the opportunity. Sutherland’s goal was assisted by Ty Naaykens and Braeden Binda.
Szun followed up Sutherland’s goal with a beauty of a shot straight past Wayway’s netminder, putting the Blues up by two. Szun was helped out by newly-signed Nathan Adrian and Thomas Hansell.
Branby, making his second start of the season between the pipes, had a stellar performance, making multiple impressive saves.
It was a slow start tonight with just seven shots on either side after the first and just 15 shots each after the second.
The Wolverine’s Preston Seymour blocked a shot halfway through the second period. Seymour was slow to get up and was helped to the dressing room by a pair of teammates.
The Wolverines’ Drew Anderson narrowed the score with time winding down in the third. Riley Vautour and Mike Heitkamp each had an assist on the goal.
Blues play again on Thursday, Oct. 18 at home vs. the Virden Oil Capitals, while the Wolverines head to Neepawa to play on Wednesday, Oct. 17.
