The Waywayseecappo Wolverines improved their record to 4-3-0 on the season on Friday after a 5-2 victory over the Swan Valley Stampeders at the Centennial Arena in Swan River.

In the 2nd, Wayway would add to their lead as Mack Belinski worked his way into the Stamps' zone and then hit the trailer which was Chad Nychuk, who was playing in his 1st game with the Wolverines this season after being loaned back from the WHL's Brandon Wheat Kings, sniped it home to make it 2-0 just 6:49 into the middle frame.

The Stamps' drew even just over 8 minutes later when newcomer Brad Fortin finished off a nifty feed from Cody Barnes for his 1st as a Stampeder to make it 2-1.

But the Wolverines regained their two goal lead on a short-handed goal by Mack Belinski, his 4th of the season to give the road squad a 3-1 advantage through 40 minutes. 

Swan Valley cut their deficit within one once again early in the 3rd period when Brad Fortin added his 2nd of the night making it 3-2 but just over a minute later Mack Belinski added his 2nd of the night to regain the Wolverines' their two goal lead.

The Swan Valley Stampeders' record dropped to 4-1 on the young MJHL regular season on Friday night after a 6-4 loss on the road against the Waywayseecappo Wolverines on Friday.

In the 2nd, the home-side strike first early as Conrad Phillips took advantage after a Stamps' defenceman fumbled it at the attacking blue-line and went in alone and beat Foucher over the right pad to give Wayway their first lead at 2-1.

The Stamps' though would quickly respond back as Noah Fladager was left alone in the slot and slip it home five-hole of Tereposky to even it back up. Then just under 3 minutes later, it would be the MJHL's top scorer Haydn Delorme jamming one in to pull the Stampeders' back in front by a goal. 

But once again just over a minute later, the Wolverines responded as Mack Belinski's powerplay snipe on Mikael Foucher made it a 3-3 game through 40 minutes.

Mack Belinski added his 2nd of the night, 2:01 into the final frame as he went short side shelf making it 4-3 Wayway.  The Stamps's got the equalizer from Alex Danis, his league leading 6th of the season but once again moments later Logan Wotton on a unbelievable back-pass from Rayman Bassi for his 1st of the season that stood up to be the game winner.
