Portage Grounds Flyers in 6-3 Win

After a slow start in the first, Portage picked up their game and subsequently the win and a tie for first in a 6-3 final over the Winkler Flyers.

Brody Moffatt was first to strike tipping the puck 5 hole on Lasse Petersen 3:36 into the first for the early lead. Veteran defenceman Kain Stevenson answered with a goal for the dogs less than a minute later for a 1-1 tie. Parrish reestablished the Flyer lead redirecting a point shot past Petersen. The Terriers  drew even before the end of the frame with a goal from Jeremey Leipsic.

Stevenson picks up two goals in last night’s game.
