Stampede roll past Storm 6-2

Bookmark and Share

A night after an amazing come-from-behind victory in Sioux City, the Stampede carried the momentum over to the Sioux Falls Arena and blasted the Tri-City Storm 6-2 Sunday night. It was the Herd’s fifth straight home win. Tom O’Regan led the way with two goals while Austyn Young added a goal and an assist of his own for the Herd who scored four times in the second period en route to the victory. Stephon Williams stopped 17 shots in goal for Sioux Falls who outshot Tri-City 41-19 on the night. The win improved the Stampede’s record to 21-14-5 on the season and moved them three points ahead of Des Moines for fourth place in the Western Conference.


The Stampede showed no signs of fatigue of playing three games in three days early on. The Herd controlled much of the first period, but it was Tri-City grabbing the game’s first goal when Alex Carpenter wristed a shot over the right shoulder of Stephon Williams at 17:43. Sioux Falls responded just 25 seconds later though when Austyn Young picked up a loose puck in the creased and put it past Tri-City netminder Scott Diebold to tie the game at one. Bryan Moore and Daniel Doremus earned assists on the goal.  Sioux Falls outshot Tri-City 15 to 3 in the period.


The Stampede really got things rolling in the second period, rattling off four goals. Tom O’Regan got things just 2:05 into the period when he picked up a rebound in front of the net and batted the puck in as he fell flat on his back. Just over seven minutes later he was back at it again, this time intercepting a puck at center ice and scoring on a breakaway when he beat Diebold on a backhand shot to make it 3-1. The goals were the 7th and 8th of the season for O’Regan.


Bryan Moore stretched the lead to three goals at 15:31 when he knocked a puck loose out of the Stampede zone, raced down the left wing boards and beat Diebold with a wrist shot from just inside the left circle for his 8th of the season. The Stampede completed the scoring at 17:43 of the period when Zack Kamrass tallied his second of the season on the powerplay. Kamrass took a puck that was deflected from Andrew Prochno and blasted a shot from the left point into the upper right hand corner of the net to give Sioux Falls a commanding 5-1 lead.


Chris Holden replaced O’Regan to start the third and Tri-City made things a little interesting at 3:37 of the third period, cutting the lead to 5-2 when Cody Murphy scored on the powerplay. With the Herd threatening to score shorthanded, Jason Binkley intercepted a pass in the slot and quickly fed Murphy who raced down the right wing boards and fired a shot past Williams from just outside the right circle. The Stampede withstood a rally from the Storm however and put things away for good with a Marcus Perrier powerplay goal at 8:58 of the period. Storm netminder Chris Holden tried to play the puck out of the zone but the puck bounced to the left point where Perrier blasted a shot under the crossbar to give Sioux Falls a 6-2 lead.


The Herd finished the night 2 for 9 on the powerplay while Tri-City was 1 for 3. The Herd return to action this Friday when they host the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders at 7:05 PM. It is Globe University night with the Stampede as Globe will have information on how you can register for classes that work around your schedule.
