First up was at home Nov. 23 where the Stamps lost 7-2 despite holding on in the first. At the end of the first period theStamps were down 2-0, but players worked all sides of the rink to keep the points low. It was in the second period, however,that’s when the Colts’ strong offense started to wear down Ponoka.

By the end of the second, Ponoka was down 5-2. Stamps’ goals came from Toran Corbier, with an assist from Nate Higgins,who scored his own getting assists from Roenick Minde and Corbier.
