The Ponoka Stampeders broke through with success on the first of nine games away from home Oct. 17.

The junior B team played their first away game against Strathmore and won 7-5.

However, after that highlight the Stampeders hit a downhill streak partly due to illness and injured players. On Oct. 23 the Stampeders lost 9-2 to the Airdrie Thunder and on Oct. 25 the team lost 12-2 against the Three Hills Thrashers.

As of Oct. 26 team standings for the North Division Junior B teams are: Red Deer Vipers, in first; Blackfalds Ford Wranglers, second; Rimbey Rock, third; Stettler Lightning, fourth; and Ponoka Stampeders, fifth.

The Stampeders’ next game is Oct. 30 in Cochrane.
