Stampeders Defeat Wayway 3-2 In OT Thriller

The Swan Valley Stampeders would need overtime to defeat the Waywayseecappo Wolverines 3-2 Saturday night at the Centennial Arena.

Frazer Dodd lead the way for the Stampeders Saturday, picking up two goals, Josh Maucieri picked up a goal and an assist, while Mikael Foucher stopped 37/39 shots for his 22nd win of the year.

After a scoreless first period, the Waywayseecappo Wolverines would strike first Saturday night. Nick Doyle sent a seeing eye shot on goal that fooled everyone at 4:08 of the middle frame. Brody Moffatt would collect his 11th of the year just over six minutes later, toe dragging the defenceman, and snapping one past Foucher.

20-year-old Frazer Dodd kick started the Stampeders offence after they were shutout for just over 112 minutes in their previous game and a half. Jackson Betcher and Josh Maucieri would find a streaking Frazer Dodd who deflected home his 16th of the year just past the midway mark of the third period. Josh Maucieri, who was back on defence tonight, let a wrist shot go that beat Colin Ahern over the glove at 17:16, forcing overtime.

It didn’t take very long for a hero to emerge tonight, as Frazer Dodd grabbed a loose puck off the opening face-off, beat his defender wide and tucked home the game winner just eight seconds into the extra frame.
