Davis stands tall as Swan Valley wraps up regular season with victory over Winnipeg

In the 2nd, Winnipeg would even things up as Ty Naaykens would defect home his 15th of the season just 39 seconds into the middle frame to make it a 2-2 game and thats where would sit after 2 periods of play.

The Stamps would get the eventual game winner just 36 seconds into the 3rd period as Lane Kirk's point shot would sneak by Jeremy Link and then Swan River's Carter Cockburn would tap it home for his 6th of the season to give his team the two points.
