After having the Pistons number all season winning all 4 meetings thus far, it was all Steinbach at Stride Place last night as they beat the Terriers 8-2.
Steinbach was on the board early Heidemann beating Petersen with a wrist shot 1:32 in. James McIsaac tied the game at one on the powerplay just passed the halfway point of the first, but it would only last 12 seconds before Bennett found the back of the net to give the Pistons back the lead. Petersen’s night came to an end as Aiken took over from there.
After 20 minutes the Pistons lead 2-1 and were outshooting the Terriers 12-8.
Aiken had a stellar second period, making key saves and rounding up rebounds to keep the Terriers in it. At 15:34 Gaber gave the Pistons a 2 goal spread, but veteran defenceman Kain Stevenson buried a point shot 20 seconds later to keep it a one goal game.
After a close 40 minutes, Steinbach ran away with the 3rd. At 5:49 McConnell scored on the powerplay and then they went on a run to score 4 more for an 8-2 final – Bellerose, Worrad, McKitrick and McConnell all contributing.
Next up for the Terriers is the Steelers at home this Friday and then they head to Virden on Saturday to face the Oil Caps for the last time this season.
