MOOSE LAKE – It was close but no cigar for the Timberwolves hockey team last Friday as they lost 5-3 to Moose Lake in their penultimate regular season match-up here. Ely was 3-14 on the season headed into the last regular season game on Thursday, Feb. 12 at Mora.
The Timberwolves outshot the Mustangs with 40 shots on goal to 27. Both teams were one for seven on power plays.
Moose Lake scored in the first minute of the game, and added two more goals early to take a 3-0 lead.
The Mustangs scored the only goal in the second period to take a 4-0 lead before Ely rallied.
The Timberwolves got on the scoreboard at 5:30 in the third period. Jimmy Zupancich hit an even strength goal with an assist by Olson to cut the score to 4-1. Moose Lake answered with another goal at 7:17 to go up 5-1.
Olson scored on a power play for the Wolves at 13:23, with assists by Dalton Schreffler and Jimmy Zupancich. Kole Macho score at 16:28, with assists by Zupancich and Olson, to cut the lead to 5-3.
