It was a special night at the Dog Pound last night as Portage donned special jerseys to raise awareness for Fire Prevention Week and raise money for the Manitoba Burn Fund.
After having the week off and with a score to settle with the Kings, the Terriers came to play last night. That was evident when Jeremey Leipsic buried a Dwyer rebound just 34 seconds in to the game. Unable to keep up with Portage, Dauphin ran in to some penalty trouble picking up 4 minors in the opening 20 minutes. Ty Barnstable buried his second of the season going top corner from the top of the circle giving the Terriers a 2-0 lead going in to intermission.
Halfway through the second Riese Gaber scored the lone Kings goal, but assistant captain Mackenzie Dwyer was quick to restore the 2 goal lead just a few minutes later.
Tensions flared in the third when a line brawl broke out in front of the players benches and over 100 minutes of penalties were handed out. Rookie and hometown boy Joey Moffatt scored his 4th of the season on the powerplay finishing a pass from Mackenzie Dwyer for a 4-1 Terrier final.
The Terriers are back in action tonight facing the Swan valley Stampeders where they will be looking to build on last night’s win.
It is also 70’s night in the Dog Pound for the Terriers’ alumni.
