Wolverines streak snapped with loss against Stampeders

Dylan Black stopped 37 shots as the Swan Valley Stampeders ended the Waywayseecappo Wolverines win streak with a 4-2 win in Swan River.

Jacob Paler-Chow put Swan Valley up by two just over three minutes later.

And then Brad Fortin extended the Stampeders lead to 4-1 at 15:11.

The Wolverines got a bit of life though at the end of the period as Leyton Smith was able to bang in a rebound to make it 4-2 going into the final frame.

The third period provided no scoring on either side, and the Wolverines ended up throwing 10 shots on net, but couldn’t get another on the board.

Brett Mirwald stopped 17 shots in the loss.

Next game for the Wolverines will be on Monday when they take on the league-leading Steinbach Pistons, before taking on the Swan Valley Stampeders for two more games next week.
