The Swan Valley Stampeders return to action tonight with a road trip to Waywayseecappo. Both teams are likely excited to venture out and find a different opponent to play following their four game last mini-series’ against the OCN Blizzard and the Dauphin Kings respectively.
The Stampeders kicked off their 2020-21 season going 4-0 against their northern rivals, out-scoring their opponent 22-13, and look to continue their winning ways against a familiar foe in the Wolverines.
The Wolverines, on the other hand, split their games with the Kings and sit with a record of 2-2, good for seventh place in league standings. Over the course of four games against one another, the Wolverines were out-scored 13-11 by the Kings.
The two teams will do battle for the first time this season and, with the amount of offence both teams poses, it is sure to be a great matchup. This also marks the first time Swan and Wayway have seen each other since last year’s first round playoff matchup.
