STEINBACH, Man. — A natural hat trick from Matt Stefanishion led the Bentley Generals to an 8-2 victory over the Stoney Creek Generals in their opening game at the Allan Cup tournament.

Stefanishion’s three goals all came in the third period started at the 1 minute mark and finishing 11:30 into the frame.

Bentley jumped to an early 1-0 lead at 8:27 of the first period when Adam Huxley connected on a pass from Alex MacLeod. Once Bentley got the lead they never looked back. Carrying a 1-0 lead into the first intermission and a 4-2 lead into the second, a four goal explosion in the third period sealed the win.

Jesse Todd’s two goals book-ended a back and forth second period while Curtis Austring contributed with two assists and Kyle Bailey chipped in with a goal and an assist.

Goalie Thomas Heemskerk made 24 saves for the win.

For Stoney Creek, Matt Smith had two power play goals in the second period.

The win vaults Bentley into a tie in the second division with the Ile-des-Chenes North Stars. Bentley plays the North Stars on Wednesday in round robin play.
