The Swan Valley Stampeders come away with a road win against OCN.

The stamps continued to press and Matt Osadick picked up his 5th of the year with assists going to Connor Navrot and Shane Roulette. Brett Evans continued his strong play in net keeping the Blizzard off the score sheet in the first.

The Stampeders came out flat in the 2nd and OCNs Apetagon potted his 6th of the season at 1:50 cutting the lead to just 1. Trevor Mann answered back at 4:58 of the 2nd to regain the 2 goal lead Daylin Smallchild and Keaton Jameson picked up assists on the play. Brody Dale of OCN scored at 13:14 and Eamonn Miller scored again at the 15:54 mark sending it to the 2nd intermission tied at 3.

The Stampeders came out flying in the 3rd. Noah Basarab scored at 1:23 assisted by Matt Osadick and Quintin Sudom and just 22 seconds later Dawson Waddell scored, assisted by Jaden Townsend to make it 5-3. The Blizzard added one by Daniel Chartrand with 16 seconds left but it wasn’t enough as the Stampeders hung on for a 5-4 victory over the OCN Blizzard. Brett Evans stopped 24 of 27 shots for the win in net. Final shots were 33-27 for Swan.
