Justin Dalebozik’s been a driving force behind the Natives offense as of late. Neepawa’s veteran forward has gathered five points over the past three games, including a two-goal performance Sunday night to lead the Natives over Waywayseecappo for their first win in three games. Meanwhile, rookie goaltender Jeff Stallard stopped all 65 shots faced in his first two appearances this season for Neepawa. A week earlier, the Natives won one of two games at the MJHL’s annual showcase weekend in Winnipeg. Wayway 0 - Neepawa 3 On Sunday night the Natives rebounded from two losses earlier in the week to top the Waywayseecappo Wolverines at the Yellowhead Centre. After a scoreless opening period, the second frame saw Justin Dalebozik score twice and Clarke Rempel add another marker to clinch a 3-0 win over the Wolverines. Dalebozik’s first goal and Rempel’s marker were both scored on the powerplay as the Natives went 2-for-9 with the man advantage. Wayway’s powerplay went 0-for-6. Brayden Cuthbert had two assists while Clayton Heinrichs, Landon Thompson, Derrick Brooks and Drake Lindsay each had one assist. Neepawa once again had great goaltending, but this time from rookie Jeff Stallard who earned a shutout in his first start this season. The Natives were outshot 36-24. Dauphin 5 - Neepawa 3 The Natives and Kings gave a spirited effort in front of 648 fans at the Yellowhead Centre Friday night. The two teams literally battled it out in a game where Dauphin and Neepawa combined for 128 penalty minutes including two fights, eight misconducts and a combined 15 powerplay opportunities. Unfortunately for the Natives, 84 of those penalty minutes were charged against them. The Dauphin Kings scored five times in the first 23 minutes of the game to chase Natives keeper Corey Koop from the net after he faced 20 shots. Jeff Stallard finished out the final 37 minutes between the pipes and saved all 29 shots faced. The switch also helped the offense, as the No-Quit Natives attempted a comeback after Tyler Durdle scored late in the second period, Robbie Moar scored midway through the third frame and Clarke Rempel found the net on the powerplay with 11 seconds left in the game, but it wasn’t enough and the Kings hung on for the 5-3 win. Neepawa was outshot 49-28 in the game. Neepawa 3 - Virden 5 The Natives travelled to Virden Thursday night for their inaugural game against the Virden Oil Capitals but, pushed on by a boistrous crowd of 1,145 people, the Oil Caps came away the victors. The teams exchanged goals in each of the first two periods before Rhett Law scored nine minutes into the third period to give Neepawa a 3-2 lead. Drake Lindsay scored Neepawa’s first goal while Justin Dalebozik scored the second. Virden found its stride to finish out the game though by scoring twice and adding an empty net goal to win 5-3. Corey Koop saved 36 of 40 shots faced while the Natives totaled 31 shots on goal. Only three penalties were called on the night. Dalebozik - who had a two point game - Landon Thompson and Brayden Cuthbert each had an assist.
