Flyers Steal Game from Terriers

Portage led 4-0 after 40 minutes, but their lead was erased as the Flyers clawed their way back with 4 goals in the third to force overtime.

It was a slow start for the Terriers who didn’t register their first shot until halfway through the first. Lasse Petersen was outstanding coming up with some huge saves. Duncan Pierce opened the scoring with a 5 hole marker on Aaron Brunn, the lone goal of the first.

It was a strong second period for the Dogs for the second straight night. Leipsic, Pierce and Williams all scoring, 2 on the powerplay.

With 20 minutes to play and a 4 goal lead, the Terriers were in position to pick up 2 points. Barker put the Flyers on the board 6:05 in the third beating Petersen to a loose puck. They were able to claw their way to a tie with a second from Barker and 2 goals from Blake.

Portage had the advantage in overtime as the Flyers picked up 2 penalties giving them a 5 on 3 for a minute and a half. The game was still undecided with the extra time and the game went to a shoot out.
