Stampeders Offence Dries Up, Lost 3-1 To Winkler Saturday Night

The Swan Valley Stampeder drop their second in a row Saturday night, losing 3-1 to the Winkler Flyers.

The Stampeders parade to the penalty box just over the midway point of the opening frame gave the Winkler Flyers a 5-on-3 and they went to work. Trent Sambrook opened the scoring at 13:43 of the first period, scoring a power play marker to give the home team a 1-0 lead.

Mike Svenson scored the team’s second power play goal of the game, skating wide and sent a shot on goal that somehow found its way through Kobe Grant at 3:54 of the third period. Justin Keck pulled the Stampeders to within one at 16:30, deflecting a Warren Marcotte point shot past rookie goaltender Aiden Comeau. Mike Svenson added an empty net goal late in the period and the Winkler Flyers went on to win 3-1.
