Matt Radomsky and Matt Lenz combined to stop all 16 Selkirk shots faced as the Steinbach Pistons closed out the home portion of the preseason with a 3-0 win over the Steelers Friday night.
Zachary Bennett of the Steelers was under siege all night as the Pistons poured 51 shots on his goal. The first came 4:54 into the second period, as newcomer Andrew Warhoftig netted his first of the preseason from Brayden Clark and Troy Williams to give Steinbach a 1-0 lead.
The Pistons would expand it to two as Brendan Westbrook buried a loose puck in front of the net at the 8:35 mark. Williams would pick up his 2nd assist, and Boedey Vaeth added the secondary helper.
Tyson McConnell added a big insurance goal on the power play with 7:23 remaining from Curtis Ireland and Brady Tatro to make 3-0 the final score.
The Pistons went 1 for 6 with the man advantage, while Selkirk went 0 for 2.
