Dauphin, MB. – The Swan Valley Stampeders win streak was snapped at six games Sunday afternoon, losing 5-4 in overtime to the Dauphin Kings. The Stampeders point streak has now reached seven straight games, and that point keeps them in first place in the MGEU West Division.
Swan Valley’s offence was led by Justin Keck (1G), Darius Makse (1G), Trey Sauder (1G), and Steven Arp (1G), while Loic Mainguy-Crepault stopped 30/35 shots he faced in the loss.
The Stampeders found themselves trailing very early in this afternoon’s game. A blunder behind the net caused a turn-over and Jakob Brook tapped home his first of the season, 1:06 into the game. The Stampeders responded with two goals of their own. Justin Keck scored his 14th of the year at 6:14, sending a cheeky flick shot in tight to tie the game 1-1. Darius Makse used the full force of his body to move the puck through two players and the goalie 14 seconds later, giving his team their first lead of the game.
Aidan Brook snuck one past Mainguy-Crepault 2:37 into the second period, in what seemed to be from an impossible angle. Steven Arp gave the Stampeders a 4-2 lead with two minutes remaining in the second period, scoring his sixth of the year on the power play.
It was all Dauphin in the third period. Former Stampeder Jamie Valentino wired home his sixth of the year on the power play at 5:09. Carter Zalischuk was left un-checked at the side of the net and swatted home his third of the year, tying the game at the 9:47 mark of the third period. Prior to overtime, the Stampeders took a penalty with 45 seconds left in the period, setting up the nail in the coffin for the Kings.
Dauphin completed the come-back, scoring on the power play just 47 seconding into the extra frame, snapping the Stampeders win streak at six games.
