Stamps drop 8th straight, 6-3 to Portage

The Swan Valley Stampeders (2-7-1) dropped their 8th straight decision as they lost to the MJHL leading Portage Terriers (9-1-0) 6-3 on Friday night

The defending National Champion Terrier got off to an good early start on the road as Brock Weston would take a nice feed across from Brad Bowles for his 2nd of the year to make it an early 1-0 lead. The Stamps would be able to add an equalizer with just 1:25 to go in the first frame Colton Brausen would bank home his 1st of the season to tie things up at 1-1 after 20 minutes. Shots 12-10 Portage.

After a back and forth first half of the 2nd period, the Terriers would take control of the back half of the middle frame as they would score 4 goals in the last 8:52 of the 2nd off the sticks of Brett Orr, Brad Bowles, Turner Santin & Ryan Hendrix to give the visitors a 5-1 lead after 2 periods.

The Terriers would add to their lead early in 3rd as 17 year old Dean Stewart would notch home his 1st of the season to make it 6-1. Jordie Valentino would make things interesting as he would get a power play goal for the Stamps, his 4th of the young campaign to cut the home team to within 4 at 6-2.  The Stampeders would add another one late as Evan Last would get his 1st as Swan Valley Stampeder but thetas as close as they would get as the Terriers got their league leading 9th win of the season, 6-3 over Swan Valley.
