Slipp's 26 save shutout leads Swan Valley to 4-0 blanking in Virden on Tuesday night

The Swan Valley Stampeders used a strong effort on the road as they won their 2nd straight, 4-0 over the Virden Oil Capitals on Tuesday night at Tundra Oil & Gas Place.

After a scoreless 1st period, the Stampeders would get one in the middle frame as Connor Navrot would get his 8th of the season with 5:50 to go in the 2nd period to give Swan a 1-0 lead after 40 minutes.

The Stamps would get a couple more goals 3:23 into the 3rd period as Connor Navrot would bank home his 2nd of the night (9th of the year) and Tanner Koroscil (7th) to give the visitors a 3-0 lead. Elkhorn product Josh Martin would get one late for good measure top shelf on Riley McVeigh to give the Stamps their 9th victory of the season and a 4 goal victory.

20 year old Connor Slipp (pictured above) was once again impressive for the Stamps making 26 saves for the his 1st shutout of the season while 18 year old Riley McVeigh turned aside 36 shots in the loss.

The Stamps finish off their 7 game stretch away from the Centennial Arena this weekend with a couple of games. Swan will be in Steinbach on Friday and they visit the Selkirk Steelers on Saturday night.
