The Swan Valley Stampeders snapped a 4 game losing streak in a big way last night (Tues) hammering the Dauphin Kings 6-2 at Credit Union Place.
The Stamps would get off to a quick start as just 25 seconds in, Trevar Mann would be left alone in front and jam home his 9th of the season to make it 1-0 Swan. They would add to their lead just 2:16 later on the power play, as from below the line, Connor Navrot would bank one in off a Kings defenceman in front for his 4th to make it an early 2-0 lead. The Kings would be able to cut their deficit in half as Thomas Hansell received a nice pass from Mason Fischer and bury his 9th of the year to make it 2-1. But with 5:33 to go in the 1st period, the Stampeders would regain their 2 goal lead as Daylin Smallchild would walk in from the right point and let out a hard slap-shot that would beat Justin Anderson over the right pad for his 2nd to give his team a 3-1 advantage after 1 period. Shots 13-12 Dauphin after 20 minutes.
The visitors would add to their lead 4:47 into the middle frame as Connor Navrot (pictured above) would rip home his 2nd of the night past Anderson to make it a 4-1 Stamps lead. Riley Shamray would bring the Kings to once again within 2 with his 7th making it 4-2. Swan Valley would add 2 more late goals, 1:51 apart late in the 2nd off the sticks of Trevar Mann and Shane Roulette to give the road team a 6-2 lead after 40 minutes and that’s where it would end off after a scoreless 3rd period.
Ethan Peterson earned his 2nd win of the season making 33 saves in the Stamps’ net while Justin Anderson turned aside 43 shots in the losing cause.
