Oil Caps fall 5-2 to Blizzard in second game of back-to-back

The Virden Oil Capitals ended up dropping a 5-2 decision to the Blizzard in OCN on Wednesday night.

The third saw Hunter Cloutier pick up his fifth goal of the season at the 2:05 mark to tie the contest 2-2 before OCN responded with three unanswered as Brady Valiquette, Anthony Keeper and Apetagon’s second of the night sealed the game for the Blizzard.

Emilien Boily picked up the win in net for OCN, while Riley McVeigh took the loss between the pipes for Virden.
