Bengert and Pistons Defeat First Place Terriers
It was only the fourth loss in 26 games for the defending Canadian champion Terriers, who are having their second straight banner season. The third place Pistons, for that matter, are no slouch either as they improve to 17-6-2 on the season and to within three points of the second place Winkler Flyers. Tyler Penner and his linemates took care of all the scoring last night for the Pistons as Dan Taillefer and Cole Smith each assisted on Penner's two goals and then Smith, with his 11th of the campaign, also added an empty netter for a three-point outing. Penner also drew an assist on the Smith goal for a three-point game as the line had eight points in total. The Pistons played with that 2-0 lead until the Terriers finally got on the board when Chase Brakel beat Roman Bengert with 5:35 left in the third. Bengert was again outstanding in net for the Pistons making 32 saves. Steinbach outshot Portage 36-33 in the contest. GDI Goaltender Roman Bengert again played outstanding as he made 32 saves on the night and Pistons Head Coach Paul Dyck knows Bengert is starting to fully hit his stride. "(He) managed the game very well today, I thought he ate pucks when he needed to and made some key saves. The save he made on (Brett) Orr was as good as it gets, if TSN was here, it might be on the highlight reel tonight. It's becoming the norm with Roman and in games like this you need your goalie to step up and he did." For more on this article Click Here. Bengert has been training with GDI during this season with GDI Director Dan Ferguson through team consulting with the Steinbach Pistons.
