Wenatchee, WA. – Newcomer Jakob Ahlgren scored a pair of second period goals to power the Wenatchee Wild to a 2-1 win over the Johnstown Tomahawks Friday night, before 2,815 fans at the Town Toyota Center. Johnstown scored the first goal of the game for the third straight game in the team’s four-game set late in the first period. Ahlgren tied the game for the Wild 22 seconds into the second period with a blazing wrister from the left circle, the unassisted goal making it a 1-1 game. Ahlgren scored his second of the game, tapping home a crossing pass at the left post. The third period featured plenty of up and down action and hard hitting but no goals, as the Wild hung on for the 2-1 win. “Other than the stick penalties we took, I was pretty happy with our effort all night” said Wenatchee Wild Head Coach Bliss Littler. “They’re (Johnstown) a pretty hard team to play against. They’re well coached. Overall I thought the effort was good and we created chances. You have to create chances against this team; they don’t give up much as far as outnumbered rushes. Your offense has to come from face offs and power plays.” Wenatchee is now 13-11-2, Johnstown is 15-10-2. The Wild remains home for 1 more game with Johnstown tonight at 7-05. Pre-game on KPQ at about 6-45.
The bitter cold weather forecast for the next few days is particularly hard on animals. Jody White with the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society says if you can't bring your pets inside, make sure they have somewhere warm to go.
She says it's also important that you supply your animals with fresh water. There are self-warming water bowls available at area pet stores, if not replenish that water supply often.
