The Dauphin Kings fell behind early on Sunday afternoon and they couldn’t claw their way back against the Steinbach Pistons.
In the back end of a home-and-home between the two clubs, Nate Goodbrandson had the hot stick as he scored three times for the Pistons in an 8-1 win over the Kings to even the season series at one win apiece.
Hunter Degelman, Leo Chambers and Goodbrandson scored for the Pistons in the first as they were up 3-0 after 20. Goodbrandson would score two more in the second period and Ty Paisley scored his sixth of the season as the Pistons jumped out to a 6-0 lead. Paisley’s goal was on a penalty shot.
Alex Senf — who has been on fire as of late — would score Dauphin’s lone goal of the period and game, it was his fourth of the season with his new team.
The Pistons continued to push the issue in the third as Daniel O’Neill and Davis Fry found the back of the net and that was it, an 8-1 win for Steinbach.
Keaton Woolsey finished with 34 saves for Dauphin as they dropped to 4-5-1. They went 1-for-6 on the power play and 3-for-5 on the penalty kill.
Next up for Dauphin is a home-and-home with the Selkirk Steelers next weekend, first up on Friday in Selkirk.
