Boedey Vaeth scored two goals to lead the Steinbach Pistons to a 3-0 victory over the Winkler Flyers in Manitoba Junior Hockey League action Tuesday night in Steinbach.

Vaeth, the Lorette product, now has 10 goals on the season playing on one of the highest scoring lines in the league along with linemates Brady Tatro and Brendan Martin.

Scoreless after the first, Vaeth scored both his goals in the second and team captain Curtis McConnell made it 3-0 Steinbach with his 11th of the season early in the third.

Matt Radomsky was tested only 18 times picking up his second shutout of the season for the Pistons, lowering his goals against average to 2.10, as the Pistons outshot the Flyers 25-18.

Brendan Martin assisted on both goals by Vaeth while Tatro picked up one assist. Tatro is second overall in the MJHL scoring race with 29 points, Martin is fith with 27, and Vaeth is 11th with 23.

It was an important win in the standings for the third place Pistons, who now have 29 points on a record of 14-6-1-0, and are now just one point back of second place Swan Valley and two behind the leading Portage Terriers.

The Pistons travel to Virden Thursday night for a clash with the Oil Capitals, then return home to host the Swan Valley Stampeders Saturday and Sunday nights at the T.G. Smith Centre.
