Coming off of two straight losses, the Swan Valley Stampeders were looking to close out their road trip with a win Sunday February 24th.
The two teams finished off their game this afternoon, that was postponed back in October due to bad ice conditions at the Selkirk Recreational Complex.

When action resumed Sunday afternoon, the score was tied 3-3 with 9:27 remaining in the second period.

Former Stampeder Noah Basarab increased the Steelers lead to 5-3 at 14:07.
Alex Uryga finally solved Zachary Bennett at 19:25 of the third period but it wasn’t enough as the Selkirk Steelers held on to win 5-4.
