Count on an old foe to stop a streak.

The Steinbach Pistons, winners of their last seven games, met their match in a tight contest against the Portage Terriers on Friday night in front of a home crowd at the T.G. Smith Centre.

The Pistons, who remain at the top of the MJHL standings with a 40-7-1 record, didn't have enough in the tank on this night, falling 2-1 to the MJHL's defending champs.

In their previous seven games the Pistons had outscored their opponents 41-12. Though the Terriers are currently ranked fifth in the league, they are second only to the Pistons in goals scored this season. Fans were treated instead to a goaltender's duel as both clubs directed 33 shots at their opponent's net with Terriers tender Kurtis Chapman besting Pistons netminder Roman Bengert.

Tyler Anderson scored the Piston's lone goal midway through the second period after the Terriers had already taken a 2-0 lead starting on a goal from Ty Enns early in the first period and adding another about seven minutes into the second from league leading goal scorer Chase Brakel.

The Pistons now have a week off until they face the Winkler Flyers on Friday, Feb. 10 starting at 7:30 p.m. at the T.G. Smith Centre.
