Special Teams The Difference In 4-1 Loss To Stamps’

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines gave up four goals on special teams to the Swan Valley Stampeders and couldn’t recover as the Stamps’ would pick up a 4-1 win over the Wolverines on Thursday night.

Swan Valley’s second-ranked powerplay certainly put on a show in the first period.

After Luke Beerman sniped one over the shoulder of Thomson Phinney in the first 1:37, Trevor Schroder poked home the rebound on another powerplay to give the Stamps’ a 2-0 lead with nine seconds left in the first.

The Wolverines would make a change in net to start the second period, putting Liam Tereposky in the crease.

It wasn’t until late in the frame that the 2-0 score would change. Tommy Cardinal would score an unassisted short-handed marker to give the Stampeders a 3-0 lead.

With 1:06 left in the period, Josh Beauchemin would beat Liam Tereposky on a penalty shot that would give Swan Valley a 4-0 lead heading into the third period.

In the third period, Anthony Bilka would break the goose egg for the Wolverines with his powerplay marker. Alex Lucken would pick up the assist on the 4-1 goal.

The Wolverines would push and push but were unable to mount any sort of a comeback as they would fall 4-1 to the Stampeders.

Now 14-9-2-1 on the year, the Wolverines will have no time to rest as they will take on the Virden Oil Capitals on the road Friday night.
