PAULL FUNERAL HOME 3 STARS OF THE WEEK!!
The Swan Valley Stampeders had an outstanding week, collecting 7 of 8 points against four different clubs last week.
The team was looking to rebound after an off week, only winning one game in five contests. Many struggles were apparent during that week but Head Coach and General Manager Geoff Grimwood, Associate Coach Suneil Karod, and the team worked through the mistakes, and did they ever correct them, playing a very structured game over their last four outings. The Stamps` went 3-0-1 last week, climbing their way back to third overall in the MJHL standings. As a result, making this another hard pick for three stars of the week.
