Four games in 24 hours, injuries and inconsistent play made it a long weekend for the Williams Lake Midget Timberwolves as they finished with a 1-2-1 record after league home games against Quesnel and Prince George.

In their first game Saturday morning versus Quesnel the Wolves came out strong and played sound defensive hockey limiting Quesnel to just a handful of scoring chances through the game. The final score ended up 5-0 for the Wolves with Hayden Lyons picking up the shutout in net.  The Wolves were led by William Paynton with three points (2G, 1A), Corey Loring with two (1G, 1A), and Brett Hare with two (2A). Jimmy Belleau and Cody Swan also scored for WL.

In their second game of the day against Quesnel WL came out flat and stayed that way for almost the entire game.  Quesnel ended up winning by a score of 6-2 against an uninspired T-Wolves team that made numerous defensive miscues that led to goals. Dylan Derose was in net for the loss for the Wolves.  Cody Swan and William Paynton scored for the Wolves with Loring and Neufeld picking up an assist each.

On Sunday WL matched up against a tough Prince George team and despite a decent effort by the team, and a great effort in net by Hayden Lyons, ending up falling by a score of 4-2. WL look like a tired team at points throughout the game and could not put the puck in the net on several glorious chances.  PG put the game away late in the third on a powerplay. Cody Swan and Dayton Long scored for the Wolves with Jared Yuill, William Paynton and Brett Hare picking up assists.

In their final game of the weekend WL gutted out a 4-4 tie with PG despite several players playing hurt and being behind the entire game.  WL scored the equalizer with just 30 seconds left and their net empty, on a tipped in shot by Owen Powers, and almost won the game on an in close opportunity with just seconds remaining in the game.

Dylan Derose was in net for the tie for the Wolves. Nick Berkalaar, Spencer Neufeld, William Paynton and Owen Powers scored for WL with Swan, Neufeld, Long and Labossierre picking up helpers.

The Wolves are off to Prince George this weekend for an eight-team tournament starting Friday.
