“The guys worked hard all weekend and played two complete games.” said Wenatchee Wolves Head Coach Ryan McKelvie. “I think we are a good possession team that moves the puck well, so we are really focusing on penetrating the mid-ice and making more plays at the net front. We still have some work to do in that department, but I thought we took a good step forward this weekend.
The Wolves are now 16-0-0 in NPHL play, 6 points ahead of second-place Bellingham. Wenatchee plays at Bellingham this Friday, November 27th, then hosts Eugene on Saturday and Sunday, November 28th and 29th, 2:35pm both days.
