Stampeders Drop A 6-4 Decision To The Dauphin Kings

The Stampeders drop a 6-4  decision on the road in Dauphin Saturday night. 

For the second time in as many nights, the Stampeders and the Kings did battle in MJHL regular season action.

Nathan Carl, who scored the Stampeders first goal of the year last night in Swan River, would open the scoring again tonight at the 11:50 mark of the first. Josh maucieri would pick up his fourth assist of the season on the play. Baron Thompson would answer back six minutes later for the Kings and the two teams would head to the dressing room tied at one. Swan Valley favoured in the shot department, leading 16-10 after twenty minutes of play.

The intensity picked up in the middle frame leading to the Dauphin Kings gaining four straight power plays, capitalizing on two of them. Carter Sawchuk sent a shot on net that handcuffed Michael Davis at 13:51 of the second. Just over six minutes later, Baron Thompson would score his second of the game and the Kings held a 3-1 lead after forty minutes of play.

The flood gates opened in the third period as both teams would score three times. Nakodan Greyeyes picked up his third of the year at 7:16, Brendan Arnold would bang home a puck that squirted out from behind the net at 10:18. Tommy Cardinal (Trevor Schroder, Mattias Dal Monte) would score on the power play at 13:40, grabbing his third of the year. Nathan Carl (Trevor Schroder) would let a wrist shot go that found it’s way under Bryan Landsberger at 17:48, pulling the Stamps within two. Brendan Arnold capitalized for the Kings on a turnover in the neutral zone and scored into an empty net at 18:52. Luke Beerman would snap home his first of the year at 19:45, but it wasn’t enough and the Kings held on for a 6-4 win Saturday night.
