Lansing Wolves vs Toledo Cherokee Game Recap


Here is the recap for Sundays game-

Wolves keep on rolling forward-

After having taken off some well-earned family time during the Christmas and New Year’s break, the Lansing Wolves came out a little slowly yesterday during the contest with division rivals the Toledo Cherokee. The Wolves played to a first period stalemate in a 1-1 tie after the first stanza. The goal scorer was Big Rapid’s native Garrett Daum with an incredible assist from one of the young guns that being Paw Paw’s Carter Stenslund aiding on the goal was assistant captain Marshall’s Jake Redman. The 2nd period was another tight checking affair until Clio’s Brendan Smith woke up the crowd with a goal ably assisted by linemates South Lyon’s Garrett Weyh and Clio’s Michael Forman. The onslaught continued with a scramble play in the Cherokee zone ending up with Clarkston’s Mac Diver directing the puck to the waiting stick of Smith for his 2nd of the contest assisting on the play with a great effort was that man Daum in giving the Wolves a then 3-1 lead. The 3rd was more of the same as the only goal came off the stick of Macomb’s Jake Deratany with assist from the ever improving Diver and the veteran Forman that wrapped up the scoring. The Wolves Byron Center’s Will Ignatovich played very steady in a 28 save effort in the 4-1 victory. The unsung player of the game sometimes comes in strange ways as the veteran Chris Seelye from Swartz Creek made a statement with a clearly one sided tilt along with steady defensive play.

The Wolves get right back at it on Friday night against the same Toledo Cherokee puckdrop is at 7:00 PM at the Toledo Sports Arena in Ohio. Then the Wolves commute to the Pennsylvania City of Harmorville against the division leading Pittsburgh Vengeance puckdrop at 6:45 PM on Saturday then get right back at it with a matinee tilt @ 12:30 PM on Sunday. The Wolves are then back to the friendly confines of the Summit the following Friday against the always tough Metro Jets, More good stuff to come and as always GO WOLVES!
