PISTONS CLINCH FIRST PLACE WITH 7-2 WIN OVER WINNIPEG

The Steinbach Pistons clinched the top spot in the MJHL with a 7-2 win over the Winnipeg Blues.

Winnipegger Neo Kiemeney gave the Pistons an early 1-0 lead in an even first period.

In the second, Mathieu Moreira scored off a nice feed from Jack Kairser to even the score early, but Steinbach scored three unanswered goals to take a 4-1 lead into the final period.

In the third, a rough start saw Winnipeg fall behind by five goals.

Jake Dale would get the Blues one more goal, with Jayden Michaels getting an assist for his first point of the season on that mark.

However, the Pistons rolled over the Blues the rest of the way en route to a 7-2 win.

Winnipeg next plays at the IcePlex against the Portage Terriers on Tuesday, March 15. Puck drop is at 7:00 p.m.
