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.
The Swan Valley Stampeders temperature cooled a bit this past weekend. The Stamps’ went 1-1 in two games at the Centennial Arena against the Steinbach Pistons and the Winnipeg Blues.
Swan Valley had a strong outing Friday night, but a bad third period resulted in a 5-2 loss to the Pistons. The Stampeders didn’t back down, in fact they pushed the play for a good portion of the game but couldn’t solve the Pistons netminder. Steinbach scored four goals and an empty netter in the third period to steal two points from the Stampeders.
The Stampeders rebounded with a 4-3 win against the Winnipeg Blues Saturday night, finding a way to get two points and get back into the win column.
A first happened last week as well. Alex Walicki was able to score his first ever MJHL goal. That marker came against the Steinbach Pistons Friday night.
The “Three Stars of the Week” is brought to you by Paull Funeral Home & Crematorium, and will be awarded week-to-week with points being collected throughout the season. The top three will players will be recognized at the end of the season.
Three stars point system is as follows:
1st Star = 3 points
2nd Star = 2 points
3rd Star = 1 point
Check back every Monday for the Paull Funeral Home & Crematorium Three Stars of the week.
