WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - The Watertown Wolves looked to advance to the Federal Prospects Hockey League championship game Sunday night at the Fairgrounds Ice Arena, as they hosted Carolina in game two of a best of three semifinal series.

The Wolves took game one on Friday night in Carolina 4-1.

The Wolves struck first in the second period, when Michael Mercurio scores on the doorstep. That put Watertown in front 1-0.

The Thunderbirds knotted the score late in the second period when Gus Ford sticks home the loose puck, 1-1 after two periods.

Ahmed Mahfouz and Justin MacDonald would score in the third period, giving the Wolves a 3-1 win and punching their ticket to the FPHL championship against Columbus.
