Oil Capitals Win Two Games Back-to-Back Over Pistons

The Steinbach Pistons fell to the Virden Oil Capitals last night in Virden by a score of 3-2 for the second game in a row.

The Virden Oil Capitals opened the scoring at the 6:18 mark of the period. Davis Chorney dumped the puck into the Pistons end with the puck taking a weird bounce off the boards and going right to Brett Sabel out front who put it in the open net.

Virden would extend their lead to 2-0 with just under 2-minutes remaining in the first period. The Oil Capitals had a two on one with Layton Veitch almost scoring but Cole Plowman made a great save, but the rebound went to Andrew Blocker in the slot who put the puck in the back of the net.

Steinbach would bring it to within one with a powerplay goal early in the second period. Langley Kruggel got the puck to Landon Roberts at the left faceoff dot who then found Ian Amsbaugh on the backdoor and he put it past LaRocque to make it 2-1.

The Pistons would tie the game up midway through the third period with another powerplay goal. Warren Clark got the puck to Kirk Mullen at the left faceoff dot who made a nice spin move around the Virden defender and ripped it glove side and into the back of the net to make it 2-2.

Virden would regain the lead with just under 4-minutes remaining to make it 3-2. Ty Plaisier put a puck on net from the left point and Layton Veitch got a stick on it to get it past Cole Plowman.

The Oil Capitals locked it down and closed out the game, beating the Pistons by a score of 3-2, two games in a row.
