The Swan Valley Stampeders’ point streak came to an end at 4 games after a 5-1 loss on the road to the OCN Blizzard.
The Blizzard struck first in the opening frame as Keenan McNeil caused a Stampeders defender to turn it over at their own blue-line and then slid it over to Alex Bernauer, and he hammered it by Kobe Grant for his 2nd of the season to make it 1-0 over Swan Valley after 1 period.
OCN came out early in the 2nd period and added to their lead as Keenan McNeil capitalized on a rebound in front for his 2nd of the year to make it 2-0, then just 46 seconds later, Riley Zimmeran made it a three goal game with his league-leading 10th.
But the Stamps' responded just over 2 minutes later in the 2nd as Myles Mason finished off a nice rush and back-hand home his 3rd over the left-shoulder of Blizzard goaltender Chase Hamm to make it a 2 goal game through 40 minutes.
In the 3rd, the Blizzard added two more with a short-handed goal from Miguel Bouvier and an empty netter from Drew Peters to wrap up the scoring.
Chase Hamm made 35 stops to earn his 6th win of the season, while Kobe Grant stop 42 shots in the loss.
The Stampeders’ return to action on Friday night hosting the Portage Terriers at the Centennial Arena.
