Wolves boys hockey team hangs on to beat Riverside

The Wolves hung on for a 3-2 win at the Libro Centre

It was a lot closer than what they wanted, but the North Star Wolves boys hockey team held on to beat Riverside Monday afternoon.


The Wolves hung on for a 3-2 win at the Libro Centre to improve to 3-3-1 on the season. Tiago Goncalves and Kyle Jones scored first period goals while Sawyer Krokos added another in the second to give North Star a 3-0 lead after two period but Carter Maxey and Nathaniel Miron made it a close game with two third period goals for the Stingers.


“It was a good two periods,” said North Star head coach Glen Holden. “Our guys didn't play well in the third and they took it to us. They made it a little closer than coaches like.”


Holden pointed out two of the Wolves' goals came while shorthanded and that aided in the victory.


“That definitely helped our poor discipline situation,” said Holden.


North Star now has won three consecutive games and Holden believes they are starting to believe they are a better team than what the start of the regular season indicated.


Defenseman Ryken Atherton explained they were getting fatigued in the third period.


“We just got a little tired and gave them two,” he said.


Overall, Atherton thought they played “a pretty good game” and pulled out the win. He said they will be looking to play a full three periods against Cardinal Carter, which is the Wolves' regular season finale. That game is today (Wednesday) in Leamington against the Cardinal Carter Cougars starting at 3 p.m.
