The Devils were at home last night after a busy couple of weeks and hosted the fresh Sudbury Lady Wolves, and were mauled by the Wolves 5-0. The Devils schedule caught up to them and the Lady Wolves made them pay for every mistake they made as they outshot the Devils in every period and scored in every period on their way to the well-played win against the Devils. The boys just couldn't seem to get anything going as they only managed 12 shots on net and failed to score on any of them. Hats off to the Wolves, who played a hard game and a deserved win.
Think Comittment and Sacrifice Boys!!
