Max Provencher and Mitch a Deacon got the scoring affair going early in the 1st to give the Stamps an early 2-0 lead. But a short time later Jesse Bernard would get the Kings on the board to make it 2-1 SV. Just 32 seconds later though Max Flanagan would get his 15th goal of the season to regain the Stamps two goal lead before Carter Johnson made it 4-1 Stamps with his 8th of the season. Once again though Dauphin would come back and cut the Stamps lead in half with Tanner Lomsnes getting his 1st of 3 on the night to make it 4-2. But the Stamps would come again and this time it was Nic Erb getting his 10th of the season. Finally With just over a second remaining in the 1st, Francis Alarie would cut the Stamps lead to 2 goals once again to make it a 5-3 Swan lead after 1 period.
In the 2nd it would start like the 1st with the Stamps getting on the board this time it would be Daylan Creasy finishing off a nice passing play from Justin Valentino to give them a 3 goal 6-3 lead. But the Kings would not go down without a fight as they would storm back 3 goals late in the 2nd, 2 by Lomsnes to complete the hat trick, while a Dalton Siwak got the other. Justin Valentino though would get Swan the lead once again as he would put home his 3rd of the season to make 7-6 Swan after 40 minutes of play.
In the 3rd, it would be a period controlled by the Kings as they would out shoot the Stamps 16-3, but both teams would come away with a goal, as Max Flanagan would get his 2nd of the night and 16th of the season to make it 8-6, in the final minute Mitch Van Teeling would would get one more back for the Kings but that's as close as they would as it was a 8-7 Swan Valley final.
Nathan Armstrong got the start and stopped 33 shots for the victory while both goalies saw time for the Kings, Brian Archibald got the start and stopped 10 of 15 shots and only lasted one period. Jeremy Pominville only let in 3 goals on 11 shots the rest of the way.
The Stamps now 2 points ahead of Dauphin for 2nd in the Sherwood, but sit 7 points back of Virden for top spot.
Swan Valley will go right back at it on Wednesday when they welcome back former coach Dwayne Kirkup and the Neepawa Natives to the Centennial Arena for a 7:30 puck drop.
