The Central Ontario Wolves Midget team continued its hot start to the 2016-17 over the weekend with a strong performance at the Toronto Titans tournament. Sporting an unbeaten record three games into the ETA season prior to the tournament, the Wolves dominated the preliminary portion of the action. Central Ontario posted an undefeated record during pool play and advanced to the quarterfinals before bowing out.




The Wolves began the tournament on Thursday, Sept. 22 with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Windsor. Trailing 2-0 heading into the third period, Josh Traynor started the comeback with a goal less than a minute into the action and Troy Bowditch tied the game with just over five minutes remaining. With just 17 seconds left in regulation, James White netted the winning goal for the Wolves, with Creed Jones picking up the win in goal.The Wolves carried over the positive momentum from that come-from-behind victory the following afternoon, posting a 4-1 win over the Mississauga Reps. A pair of goals by Max MacNaull paced the Wolves’ offence, with singles from Owen Smith and Justin Yakimishyn. Ty Masternak was the winner in net for Central Ontario.Wrapping up a busy Friday slate, the Wolves contributed a gritty effort in a hard-fought 1-0 shutout win over Guelph. Trainer’s first period goal proved to be the winner, with Jones posting the clean sheet for the Wolves.Pool play wrapped up for Central Ontario with a 1-1 tie against the Mississauga Senators. Trailing late in the third period, Smith converted a great feed from White to knot the game, with Masternak making several sensational saves down the stretch to preserve the draw, and clinch the Wolves’ spot in the tournament’s Sweet 16 knockout round.Matched up against the Toronto Red Wings in their Saturday evening match-up, the Wolves submitted a complete effort skating to a 6-2 victory and a berth in the quarter finals.White and Yakimishyn paced Central Ontario to a 2-1 lead through the first period. The lead swelled to 4-1 through two periods on the strength of goals by Smith and Yakimishyn.
