Terriers beat Natives 6-2

Henry finds himself with a wide open net and scores his second goal of the night.

The Terriers come up big in their 11th straight win beating Neepawa 6-2 at the PCU last night.

Nick Henry was back in the line-up after suffering an upper body injury that has side lined him since early January. Henry would pick up where he left off as he would set up line mate Brad Bowles for the 1st of the game. Leipsic would then be the playmaker on a beautiful goal by Brakel. Henry then beat Link near the end of the first and the Terriers would lead 3-0 after the first twenty minutes.

Things slowed down in the 2nd with Leipsic picking up the only goal of the period on the powerplay with just 58 seconds left in the frame.

Bowles and Henry would each add their second of the game in the 3rd. Neepawa would show a bit of life finding the back of the net twice with goals from Buchanan and Hills, but the Terriers would come out on top with a 6-2 win outshooting the Natives 49-20. Park picked up the win for the Terriers.

The line of Bowles, Henry and AP Wiltshire would combine for 12 points and earn all three of the Keystone Terriers 3 Stars for the game.

Portage remains at the top of the standings 11 points ahead of the second place Pistons with 2 games at hand. The Terriers hit the road next weekend visiting Dauphin on Friday and Neepawa on Saturday. You can listen to Friday’s game on CFRY.
