STEINBACK CLAIMS ANAVET CUP
Brady Tatro put the home team ahead just 2:52 into Game 6, but the Hawks pulled even in period two, when Wayde Johannesson struck with 5:50 remaining in the frame.
Bradley Schoonbaert's third goal of the Anavet put the Pistons ahead at 6:35 of the third, and that would stand as the winner.
Matthew Thiessen stopped 24/25 shots in the victory, going 4-2, 2.47, .904% in the series. Nipawin's Declan Hobbs made 31/33 saves in his final game of the season, finishing the Anavet Cup with a record of 2-4, to go with a 3.02 GAA and .902%.
Steinbach moves on to the RBC Cup in Chilliwack, B.C., starting this Saturday. Their first game is Sunday afternoon against the BCHL's Wenatchee Wild.
