The Steinbach Pistons continue to run up the scoreboard against their opposition and Wednesday night was no exception as the Pistons, on the road against the Swan Valley Stampeders, delivered a 7-3 win.

Stampeders fans had reason for hope as things got underway when Swan Valley's Keaton Jameson got his team off to an early 1-0 lead just seconds into the game.

The Pistons, refusing to be shaken by the quick marker, quickly found their legs. Less than four minutes later, on goals from Mackenzie Graham, Riley Bruce and Bradley Schoonbaert, the club moved into a 3-1 lead.

Jordan Bochinski and William Koop each added goals in the second to increase the spread to 5-1.

The Pistons' engine was cooled in the third with two more Swan Valley goals but, with a powerplay goal from defenceman Ryan Carlson and another tally from Bruce, the Pistons closed out another decisive win and improved their MJHL-leading record to 40-6-1.

The team will be back in action at home on Friday night starting at 7:30 p.m. when they take on the Portage Terriers at the T.G. Smith Centre.
