The first place Steinbach Pistons won again at home at last night with a 4-1 victory over the Swan Valley Stampeders.

Drew Anderson staked the Pistons to a 1-0 first period lead as as he nailed the top corner from the slot with just over a minute remaining in the opening frame.

But a feisty Stampeders squad tied it midway through the second period as Keaton Jameson beat Roman Bengert with a shorthanded effort.

But a short time later the Pistons wrestled control of this game as Jordan Bochinski and Danny Pion scored to give the Pistons a 3-1 lead at the break. Defenceman Mark Taraschuk made it 4-1 Steinbach in the third.

Steinbach outshot Swan Valley 47-24 as Roman Bengert picked up his league-leading 31st victory of the campaign.

The Pistons improve their Manitoba Junior Hockey League-leading record to 42-7-1, still eight points ahead of the second place Winkler Flyers and the Pistons also have three games in hand on the Flyers.

Two other games in the MJHL Sunday night saw the Selkirk Steelers blank the Dauphin KIngs 3-0 and the Neepawa Natives outscored the Winnipeg Blues 5-2.

The Pistons are back in action at home on Wednesday night as they host the Selkirk Steelers at 7:30 p.m. at the T.G. Smith Centre.
