Kaiser’s First in the MJHL Propels Pistons to 3-0 Win Over Steelers

The Steinbach Pistons beat the Selkirk Steelers by a score of 3-0 Sunday afternoon at the TG Smith Centre.

Steinbach went to the penalty kill twice before the midway point of the first period but was able to shut down and not let the Steelers set up in the offensive zone.

The Pistons got their first man advantage with 3-minutes remaining in the period and capitalized on the opportunity. Travis Hensrud cycled the puck to Davis Fry who then got it to Warren Clark at the point who put it on net and got it past screened Steelers goaltender Joshua Kirton.

Steinbach went into the first intermission up 1-0, while outshooting the Steelers 19-3.

The second period saw each team go to the powerplay a handful of times but neither team was able to find the back of the net as both goalies were playing great, especially Kirton, who was turning away shot after shot that came his direction.

Just under 3-minutes into the third period the Pistons extended their lead to 2-0 with Brett Kaiser scoring his first goal in the MJHL. Noah Szabo found Brett Kaiser entering the zone who then placed his shot perfectly over the shoulder of Kirton making it 2-0.

Travis Hensrud sealed the deal, scoring the empty netter with just over a minute left in the game and making it 3-0.

The goalies for both teams were brick walls as Domenik Wasik secured his second shutout of the season and Joshua Kirton turned away 36/38.
