The Terriers were at home this weekend hosting Neepawa and Selkirk.

Saturday night against Neepawa the Terriers were off to a slow start. Neepawa would be first on the board with Atkinson slipping one passed Klassen. The lead was short lived as Nick Henry would drive home his first of the night just 32 seconds later. Following that up with his 2nd of the night when Neepawa takes their own goalie out for the easy tap in. The Terriers led 2-1 after 20 minutes.

Brakel and Santin would add to the Terrier lead in the 2nd as the Terriers held the Natives to just 2 shots in the 2nd. Orr would add the last marker of the game with 2 minutes to go in the 3rd for a 5-1 Terriers final over Neepawa and 37-15 in shots.

Sunday the Terriers were back on the ice hosting the Selkirk Steelers for the 1st time this season.

The Terriers came out hot scoring 2 goals in their first 3 shifts. Brandon Stanley and Dean Stewart each getting their 2nd of the season. Selkirk’s Knaub would put the Steelers on the board at 3:36 of the 1st. Former Steeler Wowryk, Bowles and Knaub would all score in the period to give Portage a 4 goal lead at the end of 20 minutes.

The Steelers were able to fight their way back in the game in the 2nd with goals from Fisher and Starodub as the Terriers received 12 minutes in penalties this period to the Steelers none. Shots on goal after 40 minutes were 21-12 for Selkirk.

The Steelers come back was short lived as the Terriers Stewart and Stanley would each get their 2nd goal of the night in the 3rd and the Terriers would win 7-3.
