The Stampeders were looking for redemption Sunday night as they faced the Portage Terriers at Stride place to close out their three game road trip. The last time the two teams met, it was the Terriers who skated away with a 6-5 overtime win.
A full team effort and some amazing goaltending allowed Swan Valley to take a huge 2 points Sunday November 17th in Portage.
A crazy first period saw the Stampeders score four goals by four different players. Frazer Dodd would beat Nathan Moore in tight to open the scoring 1:05 into the game. Tommy Cardinal snapped home his 7th of the year just over nine minutes later. After a huge penalty kill, Luke Beerman blocked a shot and lead a 2-on-1 up ice dishing off to Callum Fortin who tapped home his fifth of the year at 14:09. Sam Houston would break Mikael Foucher’s shutout, walking across the blue line and firing home his 4th of the year at 17:40. Nathan Carl would snipe his 10th of the year on the power play with 12 seconds left in the opening frame.
Josh Beauchemin would pick up a loose puck off a Tommy Cardinal shot, would toe drag Cole Johnston and score his 4th of the year 6:29 into the middle frame. Riley Bruce would score his 13th of the year just over 8 minutes later. After 40 minutes of play the Stamps’ lead 5-1, but trailed heavily in the shot department 27-17.
Trevor Schroder would bury his own rebound at 7:03 of the third period, Mikael Foucher stopped all 15 shots he faced through out the period and the Stampeders skated to a dominating 6-2 win over the Terriers.
Swan – 22
