Terriers beat Steelers 5-3

Brakel scores the first of the game and earns 2 points on the night.

The Terriers were on the road to Selkirk last night to face the Steelers in their 6th meeting of the season.

The Dogs would strike first at the 13:16 point in the first when Shawn Bowles fed a nice pass to Chase Brakel who would find the back of the net. The Steelers Kraus would tie the game at one a few minutes later and the period would end in a one/one tie.

Wowryk would get one passed Friesen early in the second to give the Terriers the one goal lead. Shawn Bowles would follow that up with one of his own from B.Bowles and Henry. Selkirk fought back and Krause gets his 2nd of the night to keep the Steelers within reach.

Former Terrier Dexter Kuczek would give the Steelers cause to celebrate when he tied the game on a bardown shot on Park just 35 seconds in to the 3rd, but it was short lived. The Terriers would control most of the 3rd and at times spend minutes in the offensive zone. Macdonald would get the game winner as Haiskanen’s point shot would redirect off him in front of the net. Henry would then add the empty netter for insurance.

The Terriers now sit 12 points ahead of the second place Pistons with 3 games at hand. The Terriers play this weekend in a home and home stand with the Winnipeg Blues starting Friday in Winnipeg game time 7:00pm.
