Wolfpack devours Winter Games gold

Adult hockey tourney

Winning five games by a 20-3 margin, the Wood River Valley-based Wolfpack men's hockey team won the Intermediate C gold medal at last weekend's Winter Games of Idaho Adult hockey tournament in Boise.

The Wolfpack, 14 players ranging in age from 31 to 61, recorded two shutouts and out-shot opponents 133-66 over three days of games at Ice World. Jim Slanetz, 40, ended up as the leading 'Pack scorer.

Slanetz (8 goals, 2 assists) was on fire in the first two games. He scored the first four goals in Wolfpack's 5-1 victory over Ronin Friday, then added three goals in the 5-0 whitewash of the Phillies Saturday.

'Pack goalie David Daluiso posted the shutout, making 25 saves against the Phillies.

Wolfpack made it three in a row later Saturday—Jay Hedrick, Peter Ahrens, Bubba Street and Willy Cook scoring goals in a 4-1 screamer over Howling. Then, Dan Gralenski scored twice and Bill Brassil once in a 3-0 semi-final shutout of the Kodiaks.

Later Sunday in the championship game against Off Constantly, Brassil's first-period goal made it 1-1, then Slanetz scored the eventual winner in the second period and Ahrens added insurance as Wolfpack shaded Off Constantly 3-1 for the championship.

Here are the Wolfpack scoring stats: Jim Slanetz 8/2; Terry Crawford 1/5; Peter Ahrens 4/1; Dan Gralenski 2/2; Willy Cook 1/2; Bryan Furlong 0/3; Matt Bauer 0/3; Bill Brassil 2/0; Bubba Street 1/1; Jay Hedrick 1/1; Gavin McNeil 0/2; John Barsch 0/2; and Bob Gordon 0/1. Bill Josey also was on the roster for the champs.
