Paull Funeral Home & Crematorium Three Stars of the Week (Feb. 25 – Mar. 3)

Every Monday we will be awarding three players who had a big week and giving them stars. We will be doing this week-to-week with points being collected throughout the season. The top three players will be recognized and presented an award during our final home game of the season.

The Swan Valley Stampeders finally found a way to gain a point but, unfortunately their losing streak has now hit 14 straight games after three loses last week.

The Stampeders fell 4-1 to the Dauphin Kings during the student game Wednesday, Feb. 28, they followed that up with a 4-1 loss to the Neepawa Titans Friday, Mar. 1 and completed the busy week with a 6-5 overtime loss to the Portage Terriers Saturday night at the Centennial Arena.

A tough year is nearing completion as the Stampeders only have three games left in their 25th season in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

This upcoming week, the Stampeders will host the Winnipeg Blues Saturday, Mar. 9 at the Centennial Arena.

Three star point system is as follows:

1st Star = 3 points

2nd Star = 2 points

3rd Star = 1 point
