The Grandview Steelers are looking to rebound after a devastating lost on the road against the Delta Ice Hawks. The Pilots are also coming off a tough loss themselves and should be ready to go. The Steelers will need to start stringing some wins together to separate themselves from the tight Tom Shaw conference.
The Steelers come out banging and crashing as they turned up the intensity. It subsided as the Pilots didn’t score on their powerplay but stole back some momentum. The Steelers hit the post a few times to come close to opening the scoring. The Steelers did get a late powerplay but weren’t able to break the tie.
It could have gone all wrong with the Steelers as they give up the opening goal with the man advantage early in the middle frame. Despite the Steelers getting riled up by the amount of snow around the Pilots net, the Steelers found their offense with an offensive turnover resulting in a goal from Aaron Mak. Late in the period, the Steelers find insurance with goals from the top line, Phillips and Loverock.
In the third, Mak adds his second goal of the game with a gritty individual effort while Timperio puts the final nail with a powerplay goal to defeat the Pilots.
The Steelers generated 42 shots while the Pilots manufactured 19 shots of their own.
