Swan Valley Star and Times Game Day Report

The Swan Valley Stampeders head north up Highway 10 to take on the OCN Blizzard tonight at the Gordon Lathlin Memorial Centre. This is the second last meeting between these two clubs with the final matchup going Saturday, March 5 at the Centennial Arena. More on Saturday’s events after the game.

The Stampeders conceded six goals Wednesday night at the Centennial Arena, a game in which they battled hard but didn’t get the result they needed. Both teams have won three games so far in their eight-game season series and they both have given up 17 goals against. The Stampeders need a rebound game to help their cause and push for that final playoff spot in the west.

Head Coach and General Manager Barry Wolff put his lineup in a blender again and will hopefully see a different result come the final buzzer in OCN. Not dressing tonight are Cole Chauvette, Quinn Mulder and Ethan Matchim. Kobe Grant is expected to get his second straight start.

Players to watch

SVS – (Carter Cockburn (20G, 26A), Quinn Mulder (12G, 27A), Adam Rajsigl (9G, 27A) and Brad Fortin (13G, 21A).

OCN – Dain Sardelli (29G, 23A), Riley Zimmerman (17G, 17A), Brock McDonald (11G, 23A) and Bryden Sinclair (4G, 18A).
