Ponoka Stampeders take it on the chin in a home and home set with Mountainview last week

Two games and two losses to the Mountainview Colts didn’t help the Ponoka Stampeders overall standings in the HeritageJunior league.

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.

Those were the only two goals of the game for Ponoka. The team ended up with 14 penalty minutes.

Their second game in Didsbury Nov. 25 proved a tougher challenge with the Colts winning 9-2. Higgins continued his points climb by scoring both of the team’s goals. Brayden Wells and Minde tagged an assist on one with Corbier and Minde on the other. The Stamps took in 22 penalty minutes with one game misconduct included.
