Wolverines fall to Stampeders

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines powerplay went quiet as the Swan Valley Stampeders won 4-1 in exhibition action on Friday night.

The Wolverines went 0/8 on the power play over the course of the game, giving up a shorthanded goal as well.

Waywayseecappo was perfect shorthanded though, killing off Swan Valley’s only powerplay chance in the game.

The Stampeders started off the scoring early on in the first period when Quinn Mulder squeaked it past Wolverines goalie Liam Tereposky.

Swan Valley got another before the end of the period after a goal by Adam Rajsigl.

After a mostly quiet second period, Swan Valley added another goal after Jamie Valentino beat Tereposky shorthanded with only 36 seconds to go in the middle frame.

In the third, after a Wolverines two man advantage, Cody Barnes scored for the Stampeders on a breakaway.

The Wolverines broke the shutout not far after when Adam Paplawski put it in the back of the net after a fortunes bounce. That’s as close as they would get though.

The Stampeders goaltender Dylan Black stopped 30 of 31 shots that came his way for the win. Tereposky stopped 16 shots in defeat.

The Wolverines will finish off their pre-season schedule with a home game versus the Dauphin Kings at 6:00pm on Saturday.
