Special to The Standard
Central Ontario Wolves ‘AAA’ Midget hockey will bring an international flair to Scugog Arena, in Port Perry this February, as the Wolves host a team from Germany, as part of a special exhibition series.
Proudly, part of the 2018 RBC Canada Germany Showcase, the Wolves will be in action against Under-18 Jungadler Mannheim, at Scugog Arena on Thursday, Feb. 1st, with the action getting underway at 7 p.m.
The Mannheim team is travelling to Canada to take part in an Under-18 tournament, at prestigious St. Andrew’s College in Aurora, as well as taking on one of the top ‘AAA’ Midget teams in the province including the Central Ontario Wolves.
This season, the Wolves have roared out of the gates, with an undefeated mark in their opening 20 games (18-0-2), including a championship at the highly-competitive Toronto Titans International Prospect Tournament in September. Currently, the Wolves are the top-ranked team in the OMHAs rankings, as well as a top-10 ranked team nationally.
The Wolves routinely draw hundreds of fans to their regular Tuesday night match-ups at Scugog Arena, and the international exhibition game in February promises to be one of the highlight sporting events of 2018 in North Durham.
This past weekend, the much-anticipated match-up, on Sunday evening in Ajax, between the Wolves and the Ajax-Pickering Raiders, lived up to its advance billing. Both teams sit high in a number of polls, and traded sensational scoring chances and exceptional defensive efforts throughout. Ultimately, the Wolves were able to extend their season-opening undefeated streak to 21 games, with a victory.
Justin Jacobs scored a hat trick, while Odin McGee picked up the win in net for the Wolves.
The Wolves return to home ice, at Scugog Arena in Port Perry, on Saturday, Nov. 4th, to tangle with the Barrie Junior Colts, at 5:15 p.m. On Tuesday, Nov. 7th, Central Ontario returns to its usual timeslot, with the Clarington Toros visiting Scugog Arena, and the action getting underway at 7 p.m.
