The Stampeders drop a low scoring contest Wednesday night, losing 2-1 to the OCN Blizzard.
After a 5-2 loss in OCN two weeks ago, the Stampeders were looking to return the favour Wednesday November 6 on home ice.
The Stampeders opened up tonight’s contest, pushing the play and taking it to the Blizzard. OCN would weather the storm early on and would push back leading to the opening goal. Jaden Pashe scored his fourth of the year, beating Michael Davis with a minute and a half left in the opening frame.
John Jebamani would score his first of the year 3:05 into the middle frame that tied the game at one.
A late call against the Stamps’ in the third period for too many men on the ice would prove to be crucial. Leeam Tivers capitalizes on the power play with 58.6 seconds left in the game, leading the Blizzard to a 2-1 win over the Stampeders.
Final shots on goal
OCN – 30

With tonight’s loss the Stampeders record now sits at 11-5-2, good for fourth place overall in the MJHL.
Next action for Swan will be at home Saturday and Sunday against the Selkirk Steelers. Saturday’s game is a presentation of Star & Times. Puck drop is 7:30pm.
