Star and Times Game Day Report

The Swan Valley Stampeders and the Waywayseecappo Wolverines are set to meet again tonight, this time at the Centennial Arena. The Corral has been good to the Stamps’ so far this year posting a 2-0 record, 3-0 including preseason. 

The Stampeders looked a little too comfortable last night in Waywayseecappo which resulted in their first loss of the 2020-21 season. Well, that and the parade to the penalty box. So far this season the Stampeders have sat in the box 123 minutes in just five games. That averages out to be 24.6 minutes per game, something that needs to be corrected against another highly skilled team like the Wolverines.

The two teams played their first of eight meetings last night and it was a spirited affair to say the least. The Stampeders will have to be ready for a team who doesn’t give up and plays the full 60 minutes. What we can expect to see tonight is the same intensity and according to the score sheets, lots of goals.
