With the start of the new school year comes the beginning of the season for many sports. The Ponoka Stampeders Junior B team is preparing for its season and has already kicked off with their first preseason game against the Rimbey Rock on Sept. 21.

Rimbey won the game 2-1 with Chad Bourassa scoring the Stampeders’ lone goal. Bourassa put the puck in 11:26 in the third period with assist from Jesse Hellyer and Kyle Kinley.

The Stampeders have experienced some changes since last season including a new head coach. Scott Page will be leading the team through their practices and games this year.

The Stampeders’ roster has many players coming from Ponoka including Justin Rausch, Steven Schwab, Corbin McDougall, Rodney Raugust, Jesse Hellyer, Chad Johnson, Cory Pritchard, Travis Kirchner, Dylan Buffalo, Kyle Kinley, Curtis Pugh and Kyle White.

The team has two home preseason games. Their next game is on Sept. 24 where they will face off against the Blackfalds Wranglers at 7:45 p.m. at the Ponoka Culture and Recreation Complex.

They also will be playing a yet to be determined team at the Ponoka arena on Sept. 27 at 8 p.m.
