One Win Away

Leipsic slides the puck 5 hole on Bengert for the first goal of the game.

With last night’s 3-0 win over Steinbach, the Terriers are one win away from winning back to back MJHL Championships!

The first 20 minutes was uneventful as the Terriers outshot the Pistons 16-6 with no score. It wasn’t until Adam Wowryk sauced a beautiful pass to Jeremey Leipsic to beat Bengert 5 hole at the 6:46 point of the 2nd for a 1-0 lead going in to the intermission.

Goderis would draw the minor for high sticking early in the 3rd and Graham would get one for tripping just 20 seconds later putting the Terriers on a 5 on 3 powerplay. Leipsic would find the back of the net for his second of the night from Orr and Brad Bowles. The Pistons would find themselves killing another penalty as Bosc would get a minor for goalie interference. Brad Bowles would win the draw to the right of Bengert and Dean Stewart would bury from the blue line with his of the playoffs.

Nathan Park would be stellar in net once again for the dogs earning his 2nd shut out in as many games turning away all 23 shots including a penalty shot awarded to Petkau at 2:45 in to the 3rd. When asked about the shut out Park said, “A win is win, it’s about the team. “

The Terriers will face the Pistons in game 4 on Sunday in Steinbach, game time 7:30pm.
