Steven Kozikoski came up big, stopping 49 of 50 shots throughout the game. The Oswego Stampede took the lead before the halfway point in the third on a goal from Ryan Gunther.
In the second, Gulick opened the scoring for Oswego with a goal at 4:46 with assists from teammates Hart and Moukoulis.
In the third, Gunther put in what turned out to be the game winning goal at 5:30 with helpers from Forsythe and Kilway. Watterson deposited a goal at 11:21 with assists from his linemates, Walker and Simmonds. Lovejoy finally put the Stars on the board with a goal at 17:29 with a helper from Archambeault.
The Stampede’s victory was in no doubt helped out by Kozikoski’s big night as he stopped 49 of the 50 shots he faced. Kozikoski’s counterpart, Broda, also had a big night, managing to stop 25 of 28, but ultimately fell short.
This win brings the Oswego Stampede’s record to (9-8-3-0).
