The Swan Valley Stampeders skated to a 2-0 win over the Neepawa Natives on home ice Saturday January 11.
Josh Maucieri and Ryley Lanthier lead the way with a goal each, while newcomer Parker Rey stopped all 27 shots he faced, backstopping his team to their 25th win of the year.
Penalty trouble was once again front and centre tonight for the Stampeders, as they were penalized on eight separate occasions. The Stamps’ penalty killers, and Parker Rey would shut down the power play of the Neepawa Natives.
Josh Maucieri has been on fire as of late, picking up a loose puck and tucking home his seventh of the year at 16:38 of the first period.
The Stampeders found themselves in penalty trouble for most of the second period, but defended well against the Natives power play.
Ryley Lanthier would seal the deal at the 5:52 mark of the third period, wiring home his fifth of the year. Newly acquired goaltender Parker Rey stopped all 27 shots he faced, picking up his first win as a Stampeder, and first shutout in the MJHL.

Neepawa – 27

With tonight’s win on home ice, Swan improves theirs record to 25-13-4.
