The Swan Valley Stampeders held their preseason home opener tonight as they hosted the Dauphin Kings.
Both clubs dressed a little older group this evening as they are looking to finalize their rosters.
The Stampeders found the back of the net three times in the first period. Swan River’s Carter Cockburn opened the scoring at 9:57. Cory King and Rylan Gudnason added one each and the first period closed out with the Stampeders leading 3-0.
The Stampeders added two more goals in the second period. Carter Cockburn added his second of the game at 15:22. Joel Delorme scored his second of the preseason at 17:49 with assists going to Swan River Products Trey Sauder and Jordan Gray. After forty minutes of play the Stampeders lead 5-0.
Alex Catani, Leeam Tivers (2) and Taron Topham all scored for Dauphin in the third but it wasn’t enough as the Stampeders held on to win 5-4.
Next action for the Stamps will be Thursday September 6th when they travel to Flin Flon to take on the bombers. The Stampeders next preseason home game will be Saturday September 8th when they host the Yorkton Terriers. Puck drop goes at 7:30pm.
