Josh Tripp, who continues to lead the MJHL in points, added to his total tonight scoring his 36th of the year at 12:06 of the second period. 

Nathan Driver was able to solve Michael Davis 1:46 into the third period. Eil Lieffers scored just over 30 seconds later, but it wasn’t enough as the Swan Valley Stampeders went on to beat the Neepawa Natives 4-2. Final shots on goal 39-26 for Swan.
