Portage was in Dauphin last night to wrap up a home and home with the Kings. After losing a close game on Friday the Terriers were looking for redemption in front of a crowd of 1800+ for Dauphin’s Ukrainian night.
Dauphin got the jump on Portage applying pressure off the start and igniting the crowd at DCUP scoring just 1:26 into the game. DeKoninck wiring the far corner on a Johnson drop pass.
The one nothing lead would stand until the 4:16 mark of the third when Portage opened things up. Moffatt picks the top corner from the hash marks to tie the game at one.
The Terriers went on a run from there. AP Reese Belton scored his first MJHL goal tipping in a pass from Funk for their first lead of the night and the eventual game winner.
Just passed the halfway point of the period Howard and Moffatt scored less than 25 seconds apart for a 4-1 Terrier final.
Ethan Peterson picked up the win with a solid night in net turning aside 32 shots. Portage improves their record to 36, 8, 2.
Next up the Terriers welcome the Natives to Stride Place this Wednesday. Game time 7:30pm.
