Pistons Cruise to 11th Straight Win With 4-1 Victory

The Steinbach Pistons beat the Selkirk Steelers 4-1 Saturday evening in what was their last game against the Steelers this season.

Jack Rogers got the night started for the Pistons as he grabbed his own rebound and put it past Steelers’ goaltender Hunter Tarves.

The Steelers tied up the game with just over a minute left in the first period as Quinton Hill capitalized on a defensive zone turnover by the Pistons and put it past Will Hambley.

The game was tied 1-1 after the first period with the shot totals 9-7 for the Pistons.

Nate Goodbrandson restored the Pistons one goal lead as Jack Rogers made a nice pass to Goodbrandson who backhanded it past Tarves in the slot. Jackson Betcher got the secondary assist on the goal.

The Pistons continued to play well the rest of the period and went into the second intermission up 2-1.

Selkirk took a high sticking penalty early in the third period sending the Pistons to the powerplay. Davis Fry made sure to take advantage of this putting a one timer from Jack Rogers past Tarves and putting the Pistons up 3-1.

The Pistons put the nail in the coffin and secured the 4-1 win as Quinton Pepper got the empty netter with just over a minute to go in the game.

Will Hambley yet again played great in net, which was fitting as earlier in the day Hambley was announced as one of the finalists for the MJHL goaltender of the year award. Hambley finished the game with 20/21 saves.
