Wolves to play Saturday night in benefit game

LACONIA — The Wolves EHL team, less than 24 hours after losing to the same opponent 14-2, responded last Sunday with a dramatic 3-2 win on home ice vs the Boston JR Rangers.

"Unbelievable resiliency and team grit," said GM/ Head Coach Andrew Trimble.

Rochester native Zander Allen scored first for the Wolves on a beautiful shorthanded tally in period 1. Adam Barnes scored in the second to give the Wolves the lead once again after the Rangers tied it, but the lead didn't last long. "I think our response to adversity was the best it has been all season." said Trimble.

Brendan Boncore was outstanding in nets, in his return from injury. In OT, Captain Blake Harlow ripped the winner from the high slot on assists from DJ Schwenke and Declan House for a 3-2 final.

The Wolves EHLP also had a good week, winning 5-2 over the Vermont Lumberjacks in Laconia. Hunter Koch was solid in nets. The Wolves program finished 2-1 for the week.

The Wolves returns to action in the coming week with three games, including the Maria Mayne benefit game in Laconia on Saturday, Feb. 17, at 6:30 p.m.
