Wolves open season Friday night

Host Nottawasaga in home opener

The Ripley Wolves will open the 2008-09 WOAA Senior A hockey season Friday night at home.

The Wolves will play host to the Nottawasaga RiverRats at the Ripley-Huron Community Centre for an 8 p.m. start.

During the off-season, the RiverRats relocated to Borden. The team had been playing out of Thonrbury and were known as the Georgian Bay RiverRats.

After a strong regular season last year, the Wolves were swept by the Clinton Radars in the oepning round of the WOAA "AA" playoffs.

Most of last year's team is returning, including the league's leading scorer Travis VanGaver.
