Portage Downs Neepawa

Coming off a win last night the Terriers were looking to keep it rolling as they welcomed the Neepawa Natives to Stride Place.

Belinski opened the scoring in the first burying his own rebound on netminder Nathan Moore. Sheldin Howard answered on the powerplay and the frame ended notched at one.

Portage pulled away in the second, Reece Henry scoring his 7th of the season, just over a minute in. In his second game back with the Terriers, Sam Huston scored with a great shot from the ringette line. Jacob Brown made it a 4-1 batting in a loose puck in front.

Ty Barnstable added to Portage’s lead netting the perfect cross crease pass from Tyler Van Deynze early in the third.

Moments later an intercepted pass in Neepawa’s end, sent the Natives in on a 3 on 1, Gibbons getting one back for the visiting team.

Logan Calder tapped in the last goal of the game for a 6-2 Portage final. The Terriers outshot the the Natives 36-20 and went 2/5 on the powerplay,  Moore picking up his 11th win.

The Terriers play back to back home games this weekend, Wayway on Saturday and Swan Valley on Sunday.
