Portage picks up the Win in Winnipeg

Martin scores two in his first game as a Terrier.

The Terriers picked up 2 points on the road in Winnipeg last night beating the Blues 6-3 despite being outshot 35-16.

Blues captain Keane scored the first of the game beating Chapman on a 3 on 2 halfway through the first. Martin in his first game as a Terrier tied things up banking the puck in off Desrochie’s skate and the period ended in a tie.

3:42 in to the 2nd Aidan Buhler gave the Terriers the lead with his first goal of the season. Former Terrier Kuczek tied things up just 45 seconds later on another odd man rush. Adam Wowryk gave the Blues back the lead a few minutes later.

At 16:42 Ryan Sokoloski was hauled down and awarded a penalty shot where he tied the game at 3. Moments later Cudmore was awarded a penalty shot for Winnipeg, but was stopped by Curtis Chapman.

The Terriers turned it on in the third scoring 2 powerplay markers, McIsaac and Martin picking up his 2nd of the night tipping home an Enns point shot. 5 goals on 15 shots saw a goalie change for the Blues. Sokoloski scored his 2nd of the night with the empty netter for a 6-3 final over Winnipeg.

Curtis Chapman got the win in net making 33 saves on the night.

Portage faces Dauphin at home this Sunday, game time 6:30pm.
