The OCN Blizzard picked up four crucial points over the weekend by taking down the Waywayseecappo Wolverines in back-to-back games.

 

The Wolverines, who sit dead last in the MJHL, were hoping to play spoiler as they made the trip north to play the Blizzard during the Northern Manitoba Trappers’ Festival.

 

Friday night saw a close game, with OCN coming out on top 3-2. The Blizzard started the game playing catch-up, with Jesse Korytko potting his 10th of the season only 42 seconds in to give the Wolverines a 1-0 lead. Riley Bruce would tie things up for the Blizzard with 3:30 to go in the opening frame. The powerplay goal was set up by two former Norman Northstars, Anthony Keeper and Tony Apetagon.

 

The second period saw more penalties than scoring, as Mark Liwiski had the only goal as OCN took a 2-1 lead into the third.

 

Wayway would tie up the game early in the third thanks to Peyton Malcolm, before former Vancouver Giant and Edmonton Oil King Jesse Roach scored his 10th of the season to push OCN over the top. Former Drummondville Voltigeurs goalie Emilien Boily picked up the win for the Blizzard, his 21st of the season. He sits among the league leaders with a 2.79 GAA and 0.923 sv%.

 

Saturday saw another close game between the two clubs, once again with OCN coming out on top.

 

Brayden Dale opened up the scoring early in the first with his 11th of the season. The goal, which came at the 2:02 mark from Wyatt Riendeau and Liwiski, would be the only marker of the period.

 

Korytko would tie things up midway through the second period for the Wolverines, before Brady Valiquette scored early in the third to give the Blizzard their second win in 24 hours.

 

With the pair of victories, the Blizzard sit in fourth place in the MJHL, three points up on fifth place Winkler.

 

OCN has five games left of the season, starting Wednesday against the third place Terriers in Portage.

 

The end of the season gets easier after Wednesday with game against the last place Wolverines, followed by a pair against Neepawa and one against Swan Valley. The Stampeders currently sit in the final playoff spot, five points ahead of the ninth place Neepawa Natives. Swan Valley has two games in hand.
