In the win, the Dogs got contributions from eight different sources with Stan Yanchishyn, Dan Campbell, Chris Reykdal, Eric Delong, Dan Leslie, Kevin Falloon, Carson Rowat and James Cain.
Reykdal says that although Swan Valley is one of the lower ranked teams in the Sher-Wood Division, heading into the game the Dogs knew the Stamps are a hard working team and so it was a must they work hard right from the opening face off. He adds every Terrier member showed up ready to compete and they came out with the win. In other action last night Dauphin defeated Waywayseecappo 6-4 and Winkler clipped the Blues 3-2.
Portage is back at it tonight when they head to Waywayseecappo and Southeast visits the Saints.
This evening in the Zone 4 High School Hockey, PCI will be trying to extend their league success when they entertain Garden Valley Collegiate.
The Trojans scored their first win of the season last week in a 2-1 final over Pembina, but tonight their competition comes in the form of one of the league's top clubs in Zodiacs. Garden Valley is boasting a 12-3 record in a deadlock for first place with Mountain each with 24 points.
Although Trojans head coach, Blaine Boyle, is quite pleased with their win as it gave his troops some confidence but he knows they have it in tough this evening. He admits Winkler is the most talented team in the league and the strategy tonight is simple; find ways to score while effectively nullifying the efforts of the Zodiacs top lines. Boyle adds that PCI hasn't been able to deliver are those agendas yet this year and history supports that as the Zodiacs are 2-0 versus the Trojans.
In the other two games this evening, Morden takes on Mountain in Notre Dame and Carman hosts Pembina. The Cougars are currently in a slump, having dropped their last five games, and to break that trend head coach, Jack Phillips, says Carman needs to be bring forth a concentrated effort for an entire game. He points out that's been the Cougars downfall in recent contests, their failure to execute for 60 minutes. He says Carman will work hard for 50 minutes but there's always those 10 minutes they lay back and it ultimately costs the team a "W".
All three games get underway at 8:00 o'clock.
