STAMPEDERS 5, TITANS 4 (SO)
The Swan Valley Stampeders got a little revenge on Sunday after beating the Neepawa Titans 5-4 on Sunday night, which was two nights since the Titans won in SO back on Friday.
The Titans got off to a quick start in the first period as they would notch a couple off the sticks of Mitch Thiessen and Jaeger LaPointe to give them a 2-0 lead after the first.
Swan Valley though came out quick in the 2nd and they were rewarded for their efforts as team leading scorer Jamie Valentino (pictured above) cut into their deficit just 2:07 in with 5th of the season before Quinn Mulder added his 1st on the powerplay to pull Swan event at 2-2.
But the Titans, on a power play of their own, regained the lead as Thiessen added his 2nd of the night to give the home-team a lead after 40 minutes.
In the 3rd, just over 5 minutes in the red-hot Cody Barnes would be Johnny-On-The-Spot again banging over a rebound for his 6th of the season to tie the game.
Then while on their 5th power play of the night, the Titans would turn it over in their own zone and Jamie Valentino made no mistake going five-hole for his 2nd of the even to put the Stampeders' ahead for the first time.
Connor Brust denied Swan Valley from winning in regulation time as his wrist-shot beat Kobe Grant top-shelf with 4:58 left in the regulation time to force extra time.
After overtime solved nothing, the Stampeders got shootout goals from Valentino and Brad Fortin, while Rylan Gudnason netted the only goal in three opportunities for Neepawa.
Stamps' G Kobe Grant turned aside 22 shots to earn his 1st MJHL win, while Emerik Demers in the Titans' net made 21 saves.
The two teams will meet in the 3rd of their 4 game mini-series on Friday night once again at the Yellowhead Center in Neepawa starting at 7:30PM MB time.
