The Winkler Flyers gave up three goals in a span 98 seconds in the third period in a 4-1 loss to the visiting Waywayseecappo Wolverines on Friday night. Playing each other for the third time in two weeks, the Flyers and Wolverines had a spirited contest in Morden with 164 penalty minutes handed out between the two clubs.

Playing their first home game at the Access Event Centre in Morden, the Flyers entered play on Friday having lost just one game in regulation since the 12th of October. After a scoreless first period, where the Flyers outshot the Wolverines 13-9, the game moved into the middle frame where the emotions started to pick up.

The Wolverines took the lead with 2:38 left in the second period on a goal by Preston Seymour. The Flyers tied it up early in the third period when Jesse Korytko found the back of the net for the seventh time this season and third time in his last five games.

Unfortunately for Winkler, the Wolverines moved back in front just over three minutes later and would score twice more before the nine minute mark of the third to take a 4-1 lead. The Flyers were let down by their power-play as they failed to capitalize on the nine power-play chances that were awarded to them in the game.

Riley Morgan took the loss, seeing his personal four game winning streak snapped making 28 saves on 32 shots. The Wolverines out shot the Flyers 32-26 overall. Winkler was 0-for-9 on the power-play and 4-for-4 on the penalty-kill.

The Flyers (11-7-2) will hit the road on Tuesday night for their third game of the season against the Steinbach Pistons. Puck drop at the TG Smith Centre in Steinbach is 7:30pm with Matt Friesen’s pregame show getting underway on Country 88 and online at www.pembinavalleyonline.com at 7:25pm. You can also catch the game live on www.hockeytv.com.
