Portage Picks up the Win in Swan

Despite being outshot 15-9, the Terriers led 2-1 after the first.

Mcisaac opened the scoring 1:13 seconds in, followed up with a powerplay marker from Mackenzie Dwyer a short time later. Josh Tripp cut Portage’s lead in half at the 17:46 mark with the extra attacker.

Ty Enns regained the 2 goal spread continuing his 5 game scoring streak 2:02 in to the 2nd for the Terriers’ 2nd powerplay goal of the game. Jeremey Leipsic made it 4-1 before the second intermission.

Minutes in to the 3rd McIsaac scored a highlight reel goal as he danced the defenceman and undressed the goaltender for his 2nd of the night and 19th goal of the season. Quinton Sudom scored for Swan, but it was too little too late. Ty Barnstable scored one more for good measure for a 6-2 Portage final.

Brock Aiken picked up the win facing a total of 35 shots.

With the win the Terriers sit in 2nd place 1 point ahead of the Virden Oil Capitals who they face next this Thursday at Tundra Oil and Gas Place.
