Stampede Witness Big Win Before Showcase

By: Sophia Etier, Stampede Sports
In the weekend before the WSHL's Showcase, the Colorado Evolution traveled to Cheyenne to take on the Stampede in a one-game series. As each Stampede skater walked out of the rink after the last home game of 2014, they could successfully pat themselves on the back after a night of hard work that led them to a 7-3 victory over the Evolution. Looking at the WSHL's Special Teams, the Stampede are ranked 6th overall for power play percentage (23.21%), 15th overall for the penalty kill (80.39%), and 6th overall for average attendance at 499. 

During Saturday's game, the Stampede saw goals from Nolan Kinney (2), Jeremy Szczurek, Heath Lantz, Craig Thurston (2), and Michael Ballard. Assists came from Cody Key (4), Michael Ballard (2), Sebastian Crystal, Nolan Kinney (2), Markus Bergsten, Heath Lantz, and Jeremy Szczurek. Nolan Kinney was the weekend's Penalty Minute Leader as he racked up 6 penalty minutes on 3 infractions against Colorado. Both of Cheyenne's goaltenders, Donovan Roy and Egor Riabchikov, guarded the cage against the Evolution's skaters and prevented 29 shots on goal out of 32. Roy saw 36:31 minutes of ice time whereas Riabchikov saw the remaining 23:29. 

Now, the Stampede will head into 2015 on a regular season win streak but they are still not over with what 2014 has in store for them. As I stated above, the Stampede will be participating in the WSHL's annual Showcase where all 28 of the league's teams are to travel to Las Vegas for the annual four day showcase where teams battle out-of-division organizations in match ups that will test talent as well as the ability to adapt and change in order to equally match multiple opponents. They will be taking on two California teams (the San Diego Gulls and Ontario Avalanche) as well as two teams from the Northwest Division (Seattle Totems and Whitefish Wolverines). I have recently posted the Stampede's schedule for the weekend but I will rewrite it as a helpful reminder:

December 17th, 2014: At San Diego; 8:00 AM start time (Las Vegas Ice Center North) 
December 18th, 2014: Vs. Ontario; 10:00 AM start time (Las Vegas Ice Center South)
December 19th, 2014: At Seattle; 7:45 AM start time (Las Vegas Ice Center North)
 
December 20th, 2014: Vs. Whitefish; 8:30 AM start time (SoBe Ice Arena at Rancho Fiesta)

Best of luck Cheyenne!

Stampede Showed Great Advancement in Weekend Versus RoughRiders

By: Sophia Etier, Stampede Sports

Game day weekend rolled around and along with it came the Colorado RoughRiders. Going into these games it was predicted that it would be quite the show down and indeed it was. On Friday night, the Stampede shook Colorado's bearings and rocketed all the way to an outstanding (and well earned) 8-5 win.Saturday night told a different tale however and the Boulder Valley Rink saw a neck to neck double overtime game before Colorado took the match with a 2-1 win. Solely by scores and statistics alone, anyone can see that the team has grown stronger, more aggressive in both their physical game and in front of the net, and they are going into games with more of a ferocious manner. To conclude the weekend, the Stampede went 2 for 7 on the power play and had 58 total shots on goal. Cheyenne is currently ranked 6th overall in the WSHL on the power play at 23.81% and they are 15th overall for the penalty kill at 80.41%. The team currently has the 6th best total attendance at 5,056 for the season so far and they are also 6th overall for average attendance at 505. 

In the first game, points were produced by Heath Lantz (3), Michael Ballard, Branko Oktavec, Jack Speer, Alex Groner, and Craig Thurston. In Saturday's match up, Drake DeBerry was the only Stampede skater to score on the RoughRiders goaltender Josh Aycock. Markus Bergsten, Thurston, Oktavec, Cody Key, Scott Taylor, Alec Sara, Garrett Pitter, Nolan Kinney, Robert Crawford, and Jeremy Szczurek all assisted on Cheyenne's collective nine goals. Both Corey Foster and Egor Riabchikov protected the Stampede cage, and together, stopped 52 total shots on goal out of 59. Cody Key, Jack Speer, and Nolan Kinney are this weekend's Penalty Minute Leaders with 4 total penalty minutes each. 

Looking at the games scheduled before the end of the year, the Stampede will play one game before going to the WSHL Showcase in Las Vegas. On Saturday, December 13th, Cheyenne will host the Colorado Evolution for one night. This match has a 7:35 PM puck drop. As for the WSHL Showcase, here are the teams and dates the Stampede will face while in Vegas December 17th-20th (All Times Local):

December 17th, 2014: At San Diego; 8:00 AM start time (Las Vegas Ice Center North)
December 18th, 2014: Vs. Ontario; 10:00 AM start time (Las Vegas Ice Center South)
December 19th, 2014: At Seattle; 7:45 AM start time (Las Vegas Ice Center North)

December 20th, 2014: Vs. Whitefish; 8:30 AM start time (SoBe Ice Arena at Rancho Fiesta)

These are the final games of 2014 so make sure you don't miss out on any Stampede action!
