Will Hambley had another strong outing as he secured the 27 save shutout in a 3-0 win Saturday evening.
The first period got out to a bit of a slow start as there seemed to be whistle after whistle and not much momentum for either side.
The Penalties got poured on in the second half of the period as the Pistons had almost a full 5 on 3 powerplay that then went right into a Flyer 5 on 3 powerplay. Neither team was able to capitaliz
e on the powerplay and the shot total was 9-5 for the Pistons after the first period.
The Pistons opened the scoring in the second period as
Ethan Johnson scored his first MJHL goal off a nice, screened shot from the point. Both goaltenders made some highlight reel saves, turning away some great scoring chances and keeping the score low.
Steinbach added another goal late as Jack Rogers scored on the powerplay with 8 seconds left in the period. Pistons leading scorer Quinton Pepper got an assist alongside captain Zac Patrick. The Pistons went into the second intermission up 2-
0 with the shot totals 19-16 for the Pistons.
The Pistons put the nail in the coffin as Cooper Rice also got his first MJHL goal putting them up 3-0. Rice scored 2:35 into the third period off a sweet feed from Ty Paisley and the secondary assist going to Ethan Clements.
Both goalies played amazing but the Flyers could not solve Will Hambley as he secured his second shutout of the season.
The Pistons get back at it October 15 against the Portage Terriers in Steinbach with puck drop at 7:30pm.
