Stampeders Defeat The Wolverines 4-2 Saturday Night At The Centennial Arena

The Swan Valley Stampeders rebounded Saturday night, defeating the Waywayseecappo Wolverines 4-2 at the Centennial Arena.

The Stampeders shook off last night’s 7-1 loss with a huge win Saturday night on home ice. Matchim kick started Swan Valley’s offence, scoring his second of the year on an odd man rush 11:40 into the game. Kotlton Shindle added his 11th of the season, scoring short side on Black just under eight minutes later sending both teams to the dressing room tied 1-1.

Barnes gave the Stampeders the lead back, scoring his 16th of the year 6:01 into the middle frame. Paler-Chow jumped onto the score sheet just over three minutes later, scoring right off an offence zone face-off. Fortin gave the Stampeders their insurance goal, tipping a shot from the point by Matchim for his 12th of the year. Leyton Smith cut into the Stamps’ lead at 17:23 of the second period, collecting his fifth of the year.

Swan Valley completely shut down and offence the Wolverines mustard in the third period and the Stampeders skated to a 4-2 win on home ice.
