Terriers best the Piston 5-4 at home

MacDonald rips one past Bengert


The Terriers were off to a good start with Brad Bowles scoring the 1st goal of the game at 5:44 of the first period on a pass from Braydon Macdonald. Defenceman Cody Haiskanen would add an unassisted goal, his 2nd of the season to give the Terriers a 2-0 lead. James Shearer would get one passed Park on the power play to put the Pistons on the board. The period ended with Portage out shooting Steinbach 18-5.

Braydon Macdonald would give the Terriers back their 2 goal cushion on the power play, his 1st as a Terriers at 4:03 of the 2nd with assists from Bowles and Weston. The Pistons would then score 3 in a row, with 2 of those coming on the power play to give them their first lead of the game. Schoonbaert, Bochinski and Smith all getting credit. With just 10 seconds left in the 2nd, Orr would score 5 hole from the point and tie the game at 4 going in to the 2nd intermission.

Nick Henry would score the eventual game winner in the 3rd on a rebound from Brakel. The Terriers were able to hang on for the win despite a Terrier penalty with 2:27 left to go in the 3rd and Steinbach’s goalie on the bench. The final shots on goal were 33 – 21 for Portage with 3 of the 4 Pistons goals and 2 of the 5 Terrier goals coming on the power play.

The Terriers are on the road this weekend playing in Swan Valley Friday night and Dauphin on Saturday. Don’t forget our next home game is October 23rd vs The Virden Oil Caps and it is our Pink in the Rink night!!!
