This was just what the Dr. ordered.
The Steelers came out onto the ice with nothing but a “Have too” mentality and did just that.
The Steelers were first on the board with a goal by Noah Basarab (ASST: Ryan Piwniuk) in the first 29 seconds of the game, but there was a 2nd unanswered goal by Nate Halvorsen (ASST: Colby Dudek and Ryan Sokoloski ).
Midway through the second period, Virden would get on the board with a goal by Hunter Cloutier (ASST: Jack Einarson and Josh Belcher), but the Steelers had a response for that one only 3 minutes later with a goal by Colby Dudek (ASST: Ryan Sokoloski and Ryan Piwniuk).
The third period started out much like the first period did, with a goal by Blake Burr (ASST: Colby Jaquet and Nate Halvorsen) in only 56 seconds. Virden would get one more on the board, that was questioned by all attendees, which was scored by Jesse Mistelbacher (ASST: Tanner McKechnie) with just 4 minutes left of regulation.
This contest would go to the Selkirk Steelers and a notch on the series win column, with a final score of 4 – 2.
Zach Bennett, who has been in goal for the Steelers for the duration of this playoff series, posted 24 saves of the 26 shots on net.
Next Game is March 14 in Virden, with a puck drop of 7:30pm
