The Cheyenne Stampede started off the exhibition season with
a 0-1-1 record as they fell to the Colorado State Buffaloes, but they didn't go
down without a fight. They continue to make their statement this weekend as they play another two-game series against another collegiate team.
Last Friday at the Cheyenne Ice and Events Center, they lost
a 3-2 decision that ended in a seven-round shootout that had the fans on the
edge of their seats. The next night in Windsor, Colorado, the Stampede fell to
the same team by the score of 3-1.
Despite being swept by a Division I Collegiate club, the Stampede is
making a statement that they won't back down from anybody.
Coach Marty Quarters appeared on the Cheyenne Stampede
Coaches Show on 1480 AM Wednesday morning and mentioned that the exhibition
season is to "get our personnel in order and fill some roles and be ready
for the regular season, so it's a little more important that wins and losses
this weekend." He also want his team to be comfortable, but not too
comfortable to the point in where they stop developing as players.
The weekend in which Coach Quarters was talking about is
tonight and tomorrow night as the Stampede continue preparing for the upcoming
season as they host a two-game series against the Weber State Wildcats at the
Cheyenne Ice and Events Center. Both games have a 7:35pm faceoff. Please note
that the pre-game warm ups are 30 minutes prior to the opening faceoff.
