WOLVES RETURN WITH PASSION TO HONOUR HANNIMAN AND PAQUETTE 11/13/2017 7:31:23 AM
The Renfrew Junior Timberwolves were not to be denied in efforts to make their statement in of honour fallen teammantes Brandon Hanniman and Alex Paquette. A packed house at the Ma-te-way Activity Centre cheered the club on Friday (November 10th) as, despite the heavy hearts, the team found its skating legs and came away with a 5-2 victory over the visiting Alexandia Glens. My Broadcasting Corporation President Jon Pole was host for a moving pre-game tribute marking the 'Wolves return to the ice after two weeks off to get their bearings, following the deaths of numbers 65 and 88 in a car accident. The jerseys of the two were retired, and hang from the rafters above their numbers and initials now painted in the Ma-te-Way ice. Coach Corey Foster says he told team members to pace themselves because they were bound to be pumped to return to play.
The proceeds from Friday night were being donated to the Scheuneman family, as Ben is still recovering in hospital. Over $10 000 was raised and the family is going to send a portion the Hanniman and Paquette families.
