The Wayway Wolverines started their home stand on the wrong foot as for the 2nd time this season they lost to the Steinbach Pistons 5-1.
The Pistons showed no signs of any bus legs early on as they would have a breakaway in the opening seconds by Luke Amsbaugh but he would not be able to convert. Amsbaugh though would get the opening goal just a matter of seconds later as he would deflect home a Eddie Eades' point shot for his 4th of the season to give his team an early 1-0 lead just 48 seconds in and thats what it would end up after 1 period.
Just 2:32 into the 2nd period, MacKenzie Graham would notch home his 5th goal of the season to give the visitors a 2-0 lead. But the Wolverines would get on the board just a short time later as their power play converted as Ty Enns would bang home his team tying 5th to cut the deficit to just 2-1. The Pistons would counter with 2 goals before the 2nd period would end as Tyler Penner and Bradley Schoonbaert would give Steinbach a 4-1 lead through 40 minutes.
The Wolverines would have a couple chances to get back into the game but they would not be able to break through as Quinton Lisoway would get his 2nd goal of the season to give the visitors their 8th win of the season, 5-1 over the Wayway Wolverines.
Brandon Holtby made 32 saves in a losing cause while Roman Bengert had a quiet night stopping only 15 shots.
The Wolverines will go right back at it on Saturday when they host the Winnipeg Blues at 7:30PM MB time.
