The Steinbach Pistons could never recover from a 3-0 first period deficit as they went on to a 4-2 defeat at the hands of the Selkirk Steelers in MJHL action Tuesday night at Selkirk.

First period goals by Ryan Sokoloski, Noah Basarab and Connor Barley, with his league-leading 19th goal of the season, changed the complexion of the game for the Pistons as they were forced to play catch-up for the rest of the game.

The Pistons did just that in the second as powerplay goals by defenceman Declan Graham, with his first of the season and then Tyson McConnell, with his 13th, coming less then two minutes apart, as the Pistons narrowed the Selkirk lead to 3-2 after 40 minutes.

Carter Barley added an insurance marker for Selkirk midway through the third and the Steelers hung for the 4-2 victory.

Selkirk outshot Steinbach 40-34 as Matt Radomsky made 36 saves in a losing cause in net for the Pistons.

With the loss, the third-place Pistons fall to 16-9-1-0 in the MJHL standings, just two points ahead of the fourth place Steelers.

The Pistons host a pair of games in Steinbach this weekend with the Waywayseecappo Wolverines coming to town on Friday and the Neepawa Natives on Saturday. Both those games get underway at 7:30 p.m.
