Sea Wolves Fans Rock The Coliseum - WLOX.com - The News for South Mississippi

Sea Wolves Fans Rock The Coliseum

The mascot lit a ring of fire around the Sea Wolves players as the game began, but the ice wasn't all that was on fire.  After a two year hiatus, fans echoed the Sea Wolves chant throughout the Coliseum.

They scored just three minutes into the game, but win or lose, the Sea Wolves have a strong fan base here in south Mississippi. Tracy Hurt is one of them. She sat in section 1, row 5, seat 13 since their first game in 1996.

"I was so excited. It was like I was going to explode. It's been a long time going. It's a great feeling to have them back on the ice," Hurt said.

It was Matthew Northrop's first trip to a hockey game. He and his parents drove 300 miles to see the Sea Wolves play.

"We wouldn't miss this for the world, especially after being here on the coast for about ten years. I went to Iraq when Katrina hit, came back home from Iraq, got orders, so we moved to Fort Benning, been away for about two years," said Matthew's dad, Steven. "This is our favorite team. She's been a season ticket holder for about five years, so of course, we wouldn't miss this for the world."

The Sea Wolves lost 5-2 Saturday night.  Sunday evening, the Sea Wolves took on the Pensacola Ice Pilots, and they won in a shoot out.
