The Steinbach Pistons outscored the Virden Oil Capitals 17-3 in a dominant home-and-home weekend exhibition series for the Pistons.

Steinbach defeated the Caps 8-3 Saturday night in Virden, following on the heels of their 9-0 victory Friday at Steinbach.

Last night in Virden, the Pistons broke open a close game with three unanswered goals in the third.

Barclay James, Jack Johnson and Tyson McConnell netted two goals each for the Pistons in the contest while Vaughn Dupre and Danny Pion added singles. Will Koop drew three assists on the night.

In other exhibition play Saturday night, it was OCN over Swan Valley 5-1, Winnipeg edged Selkirk 4-3 and Neepawa outscored Waywayseecappo 7-6.

In Steinbach's 9-0 victory over Virden on Friday, Matt Radomsky picked up the shutout, stopping all 17 shots directed his way. He did not face a single shot in the third.

Leading the scoring for the Pistons in the 9-0 onslaught was Drew Worrad with two goals and three assists. Austin Heideman and Vaughn Dupre also had two each. Adding singles were Troy Beauchemin, Jack Johnson and Brad Schoonbaert.

The Pistons will continue their on-ice workouts through the week and then will play their final exhibition games next weekend against the Selkirk Steelers in another home-and-home affair as the Pistons travel to Selkirk on Friday and then will host the Steelers Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Steinbach.

That series is a precursor to the MJHL regular season opener on Friday, Sept. 22 as the Pistons will host the Selkirk Steelers at 7:30 p.m. at the T.G. Smith Centre.
