WOLVES COME BACK TO DOWN ACADIA 4-3

CIS
Friday, March 24, 2006

The Lakehead Thunderwolves won their first game at the CIS Telus University Cup Men’s National Hockey Championships with a thrilling come-from-behind 4-3 win over the No. 2 Acadia Axemen on Friday afternoon in Edmonton.  Lakehead scored three goals in the third and were led by Jeff Richards who scored the game winner and added an assist while Lakehead’s other goals came from Joel Scherban, Tobias Whelan, and Jason Lange.  Acadia’s goals came from Kevin Baker, Blair Jarrett, and Kevin Korol.  Acadia outshot Lakehad 37-32 in the game and Lakehead netminder Chris Whitley was stellar in the win.

Lakehead Head Coach Pete Belliveau said his team did not give up.  “Again we stayed the course and the guys followed the game plan very well.  We played a very good team but our guys didn’t panic, kept working, executed well, and came back for the win.”

Richards was named Lakehead’s Player of the Game while Kevin Baker was Acadia’s. 

The win sets the stage for a Saturday afternoon semi-final showdown with the No. 5 Saskatchewan Huskies with a berth in Sunday’s national championship game at stake.  Saturday’s game will be videowebcast live pay-per-view with ordering info available at http://events.news-cast.com/.  The game will also be carried live on 580 CKPR AM in Thunder Bay with Bryan Wyatt calling all the action.
