Stampeder Push Win Streak to Three Games, Defeat Niverville Friday Night

The Swan Valley Stampeders pushed their win streak to three games, defeating the Niverville Nighthawks –3 in a shootout Friday night at the Centennial Arena.

The Stampeders offence was led by Josh Danis (1G, 1A), Trey Sauder (1G) and Myles Mason (1G), while Loic Mainguy- Crepault stopped 30/33 shots he faced in a 4-3 shootout win over Niverville.

Brendan Bottem opened the scoring Friday night at the Centennial Arena, collecting his seventh of the year 6:19 into the opening frame. Sauder was able to answer back for the Stampeders, driving the net and the puck going off his body and in just over seven minutes later, collecting his fifth of the year on the power play. Niverville answered back late in the period, sending the Stampeders to the dressing room down 2-1.

Josh Paulhus added his ninth of the season, scoring in tight on the power play 7:31 into the second period. Mason returned fire for the Stampeders, collecting his fifth of the year less than five minutes later.

Danis was able to force overtime, scoring his first of the season at 14:56 of the third period.

Overtime solved nothing and these two evenly-matched teams needed three shooters to solve this one.
