It’s time for another Three Stars of the Week, which is brought to you by Paull Funeral Home and Crematorium. 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 will players will be recognized and presented an award during our final home game of the regular season.
First off, the three stars of the week will close down in one week in order to hand out the top three awards on March 17. Secondly, we are it to the double points portion of the season.
The Swan Valley Stampeders went 3/3 last week, outscoring their opponents 16-4 during those three games.
The Stampeders started the week off right, defeating the Dauphin Kings in their first-ever Student Game at the Centennial Arena. Noah Wilson, Collin Jennings, Jakob Jones and Darius Makse scored to help the Stampeders inch closer to first place in the MGEU West Division Wednesday afternoon.
The Stampeders followed that up by scoring eight straight goals against the Winnipeg Freeze Friday night on the road. Adam Rajsigl, Trey Sauder, Warren Marcotte, Josh Danis, Myles Mason, Justin Keck, Jakob Jones and Griffin Ayotte all scored, while Kobe Grant picked up his 22nd win of the season stopping 32/33 shots he faced to help his team gain first overall in the West.
Swan followed that up with an unreal performance against the Selkirk Steelers Saturday night. Trey Sauder, Alex Walicki, Noah Wilson and Landen Gulutzan all picked up a goal while Grant stood on his head, collecting his third shutout of the season and 23rd win of the year.
