STRONG SECOND PERIOD HELPS FLYERS TO THIRD PRESEASON WIN

The Flyers scored three second period goals in a span of eight minutes, enroute to a 3-1 over the Pistons in Steinbach. Adam Vander Linden made 37 saves on 38 shots to help the Flyers win their third preseason game in a row.

Just 24 hours after beating the Pistons 3-1 at home, the Orange and Black travelled to the TG Smith Centre in Steinbach looking for the same result. The Flyers dressed a large group of new faces with a few veterans sprinkled in.

After a scoreless first period, Morden native Michael Wirth gave the Flyers a 1-0, 7:46 into the second period. With just over six minutes left in the period, Braden Billaney scored his second goal in as many games on the power-play to push the Flyers in front by a score of 2-0. Winkler kept coming and increased their lead to 3-0 just a few minutes later thanks to forward Josh Brunton, who finished off a nice pass from Holland product Jeff Michiels. All three Flyer goals came in a span of eight minutes and seven seconds.

The Pistons finally got one past Vander Linden, midway through the third period on the power-play to cut Winkler’s lead to 3-1. Vander Linden and the Flyers would hold the Pistons off the scoresheet the rest of the way while improving their MJHL preseason record to 3-1.

Vander Linden made 37 saves on 38 shots as Steinbach outshot the Flyers 38-21.

The Flyers will hit the road on Sunday night for a date with the Selkirk Steelers (7:30pm @ Selkirk Recreation Complex), before hosting the Steelers in their next home game on Tuesday, September 9th.
