Stampeders Win Streak Extended To 9 Games

The Swan Valley Stampeders travelled south on February 18 to wrap up a home and home with the Waywayseecappo Wolverines.

After scoring six goals two nights prior, the Stamps’ knew Wayway would come out hard on home ice.

The Wolverines’ got an early power play but Merek Pipes was solid in net which gave the Stamps’ an opportunity to get things going offensively and that’s what they did.

Brian Harris banged home a rebound 16:11 into the first frame and Swan Valley led 14-4 on the shot clock after 20.

Hometown native, Carter Cockburn made it 2-0 for the Stamps’ at the 15:06 mark of the second period. Bryce Krauter responded for Wayway just over three minutes later as Swan Valley led 2-1 after 40.

Jake Bestul tied up the contest early in the third and both Pipes and Isaac Labelle shut the door the rest of the way to send this game into overtime.

Overtime solved nothing so it was off to a shootout.

Trent Halfdanson opened the scoring for the Wolverines’ but Alex Uryga tied it up two shooters later.

Waywayseecappo had three chances to take a lead but they couldn’t beat Pipes which set things up for Brian Harris.

Already scoring in the game, he notched the shootout winner for the Stamps’.

Swan Valley has now won nine straight games and are 38-10-3-2 on the season.

The Stampeders’ will next hit the ice on Wednesday, February 20 as they welcome the OCN Blizzard to town for Minor Hockey Night.

$2 admission for any minor hockey player wearing their jersey. There will be giveaways and you can get autographs from your favourite Stamps’ after the game. Game time is set for 7:30pm.
