Mayor suits up for Wolves

Shorthanded Ripley team wins two

The Ripley Wolves got a little help from council on the weekend.

 

Huron-Kinloss mayor Mitch Twolan suited up for the shorthanded Wolves in a pair of weekend wins. Ripley beat Drayton 12-6 Friday night at home and Nottawasaga 8-4 Saturday on the road.

 

“It was fun,” said Twolan Monday morning. “They said they were short (players) and they were looking for some help. I had a good time.”

 

Twolan had one assist in Friday night’s win over the visiting Icemen.
