The Selkirk Steelers locked it down defensively on Friday night as they earned their biggest win of the season.
Hosting Dauphin in their final home game of 2021, they used a three-goal first period to pick up a 5-2 win.
It took Selkirk just 30 seconds to open the scoring before Jayden Jubenvill tied it up with a power play goal less than two minutes later. Selkirk would go on to score three straight goals to take a 4-1 lead.
Dauphin would cut the deficit in half with a Luke Morris goal; however, that was as close as it would get for Dauphin. An empty net goal would clinch the game for Selkirk as they picked up their 12th win of the season.
Dauphin dropped to 22-7 with the loss. The two teams will go back at it on Saturday night for Hockey Night in Treaty 2. The game will also be sponsored by Cary Fillion’s Twin Motors.
Despite the loss, Dauphin did go 2-for-4 on the man advantage; however, Selkirk went 3-for-4
Jubenvill’s goal was his third of the season while Ben Hackl earned his 15th assist
Selkirk now leads the season series, 1-0
