Portage Tames Wolverines

Portage was in Wayway tonight to face the 4th place Wolverines for the first time this season. Peterson gets the back to back start in net.

The Wolverines came out early and applied pressure to the Terriers. Brandt was the first to score with a wrist shot from the point. Portage Captain Ty Barnstable answered with his 9th of the season blocker side on Labelle.

Moffatt gives Portage the lead just passed the halfway point with the same combination of himself, Barnstable and Roy. Peterson comes up with a big save on the penalty kill to keep the Terriers lead.

Portage turns it up in the second and starts to pull away from the home town Wolverines.

Barnstable scores his 2nd of the game beating former Terrier Nick Doyle wide to put it passed Labelle at 4:07.

Barnstable completed the hat trick for his 11th of the season burying the rebound on the powerplay and a 3 goal spread on Wayway.

Portage controlled play in the third and never allowed the Wolverines back in the game.

Henry picked up his first MJHL goal of the season while Poirier did a spin move at the top of the circle and threw a shot on net that found it’s way through. Billaney topped off the Terriers scoring moments later for a 6-2 final.

Peterson gets back to back wins for the dogs with a confident game, stopping 25 shots.

Portage sits in first place one point ahead of Swan Valley with 2 games at hand. Next up for the Terriers is back to back home games November 2nd and 3rd against the Selkirk Steelers.
