Terriers close the Showcase with a win over Dauphin

McIsaac scores 2 on the night on his way to 4 points.

The Terriers played in the closing game of the 2016 MJHL Showcase last night at the MTS Ice Plex and had another strong showing beating the Dauphin Kings 6-3. The dogs recorded the opening win of the Showcase as well with a 7-2 final over Selkirk Monday night.

McIsaac opened the scoring early sliding home a pass from Sokoloski off the boards. Sokoloski added a marker of his own giving the Terriers a 2 goal lead after beating Holtby from the slot at 7:36 of the first. Ashton Clark scored on former teammate Brock Aiken on the powerplay halfway through the first putting Dauphin on the board and cutting the Terriers lead in half.

Leipsic and Stevenson would both pad the Terriers in the second as the Terriers outshot the Kings 10-4. Stevenson’s would be his first goal of the season.

Enns and McIsaac continued the offensive push in the 3rd each scoring and assisting each other’s goals. Dauphin not done for the night showed some life as they score twice on the powerplay, Chartrand and Greening.

Brock Aiken picked up another win in net for Portage turning away 19 shots. The line of Enns, McIsaac and Sokoloski combined for 11 points on the night.
