The Swan Valley Stampeders were back in action Tuesday November 20th as they travelled to Waywayseecappo to take on the Wolverines for the first time this season.
Taking 3 of 4 points from the defending MJHL Champions this past weekend the Stampeders were looking to continue their success against a team they haven’t met this year.
The Wolverines jumped out to an early lead as Caleb Paisley was sent in all alone and beat Merek Pipes at 3:49 of the opening frame. Stampeders were all over the Wolverines the rest of the period scoring three times. Matt Osadick continues to dominate the league and picked up his 14th goal of the year on the power play at 5:11 finishing off a tic-tac-toe play from Campbell Balk and Bradley Goethals. Brian Harris picked up a loose puck, toe dragged a sprawled out defender and went back hand shelf beating Isaac Labelle at 16:11. Bradly Goethals found the back of the net late in the first period and the Stamps led 3-1 after twenty minutes of play.
Waywayseecappo cut into the Stamps lead as Gerrick Ripley put home his first of the year beating Pipes on a rebound at 6:17 of the middle frame. The Stampeders sent 16 shots on goal in the second period but could not solve Labelle as he shut the door.
The third period was all Swan Valley as Josh Tripp tucked in his 13th of the year 3:16 into the period. Bradly Goethals grabbed his second of the game snapping one past Isaac Labelle blocker side on the power play at 5:03. Alex Uryga scored his 3rd of the year at 18:56 and the Stampeders skated to a 6-2 victory over the Wolverines Tuesday night. Merek Pipes had himself another stellar performance in net turning aside 24/26 shots.
