=== NOVEMBER PLAYERS OF THE MONTH ===

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE MONTH: SEALS #90 - KENNY HARAN

While he only played one game, Haran impressed with some timely blocking and his usual strong defense. Not only that, but the long time veteran netted an assist. Not known for his offense, the extra point was nice to see. Haran will look to continue the same rock steady defense the rest of the season. 

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE MONTH: WOLF PACK #40 - TRISTAN PARENT

After a tough first game in October, Parent dominated the month of November. Parent was able to aid his team in earning first victory and a tie against the undefeated Seals. Now tied for the league lead in points, Parent will hope for a strong December to finish out the year.

The Wolf Pack and the Seals faced each other for the 2nd time this season in what was a very different bout compared to the first time they met on the field. The Wolf Pack controlled much of the action throughout the beginning two periods, never allowing the Seals to control the pace and constantly peppering Seals goal tender Dean Olivas with an abundance of shots on net. Despite the heavy pressure and pace of the Wolf Pack, the Seals managed to keep fighting and never gave up. Every time it seemed the Wolf Pack would gain absolute control of the game, Anthony Theuer of the Seals kept his team within reach tying the game up several times with the final score being 7 - 7. 


Watch the recap here.


The aftermath of this game brings the Wolf Pack's record to 1-1-1 and the Seals record to 2-0-1

The WCHL had it's 3rd game of the season take place last night between the Hornets and the Wolf Pack. It was a back and forth high scoring shoot out type of game with each team taking brief leads over the other. Despite the amazing effort from assistant captain Kevin Konfara who scored 12 goals, his team took two untimely penalties that the Wolf Pack took advantage of. Tristan Parent of the Wolf Pack scored the last and final goal taking the lead with less than one minute to go getting his team their first W of the season.

The Wolf Pack look to avenge themselves against the Seals who are undefeated. The two teams face off once again in two weeks on November 20th!

=== OCTOBER PLAYERS OF THE MONTH ===

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE MONTH: HORNETS #55 - JEFF FLESHNER

Substation stats do not count towards career stats, but Fleshner's first chance in net could not be ignored. Filling in for the Wolf Pack, Fleshner posted a great game in the return to this season. His performance was so strong that his true team, the Hornets, utilized him in their first game of the season too. Expected to be a forward, this new goaltender could be one to keep an eye on.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE MONTH: SEALS #39 - ANTHONY THEUER

The Seals were the first team to get two games in this season and Theuer made sure it mattered. After a dominant game two performance, Theuer now has 10 goals and 2 assists on the season. This superstar could be poised for a massive breakout year.

The WCHL had it's second game of the season take place welcoming back the Hornets for their first game taking on the Seals.

It was an intense physical game with the Seals controlling much of the action for the first two periods despite everything the Hornets were throwing at them. The tide began to shift in favor of the Hornets with assistant captain Kevin Konfara scoring 30 seconds into the 3rd period. The Hornets even took a brief 6-5 lead in the 3rd. However, the Seals remained calm and composed with forward Anthony Theuer firing back scoring three more goals with the final scoring being 8-7 making the Seals 2-0 to start the regular season.

The WCHL returns on November 6th with the Hornets facing off against the Wolf Pack. Both teams will be eager to earn their first win of the season in what will surely be a fantastic game.

After 580 days the WCHL returned yesterday with an awesome kickoff game between the Seals and the Wolf Pack.

The 1st period saw a stalemate keeping things even with both teams trying to figure the other out. The 2nd period and 3rd period told a different story however as the Seals managed to control the pace with Jordan Zmich scoring two goals and then Anthony Theuer scoring another two goals. The Wolf Pack attempted to rally with two goals late but ultimately came up short with the final score being 4-2. Re-watch the action here.
 
We roll on forward looking toward Week 2 with the Seals taking to the field again against the Hornets in two weeks on 10/23! We hope to see everyone there!
