Terriers Clip Flyers on Home Ice

Despite Leonard scoring early in the first for Winkler and the Terriers unable to find the back of the net until late in the second, they came out on top 4-2 in their last meeting of the regular season.

Portage found themselves down just 2:24 in to the first. Winkler’s 1-0 lead held through the first frame despite the Terriers outshooting the Flyers 10-3.

Portage dominated the next 20 minutes playing most of the period in the offensive zone. Ty Barnstable evened things up at one with a wrist shot going 5 hole on Martyniuk from a couple feet inside the blueline.

Just over a minute later, Cole Oliver hit a breaking Sokoloski with a stretch pass that found the back of the net off a Winkler defenceman. Portage led 2-1 after 40 minutes.

Sokoloski and Leipsic celebrate!

Winkler’s Opperman tied the game at 2 beating Lasse Petersen 4:22 in to the third period, it wasn’t long before Portage regained the lead for good.

Joey Moffatt awarded a penalty shot in the 3rd, but was unsuccessful.

Duncan Pierce potted the eventual game winner on a scramble in front and McIsaac buried his 21st of the season for insurance.

Winkler called a timeout and pulled Martyniuk with over 2 to go in the third, but the Terriers were the better team tonight outshooting their opponent 33-15 in a 4-2 final.

Lasse Petersen picks up his 14th win in net for the Terriers with 13 saves. Terriers were 1/5 on the powerplay and 2/2 on the penalty kill.

Next up for the Terriers is a road game to Selkirk this Tuesday. Game time 7:30pm.
