The Terriers pulled off another win with a strong second period scoring 4 goals on their way to a 6-2 final.
Cody Thompson opened the scoring for Portage with the lone goal of the first frame with a wrist shot from the point. The Terriers outshot the Wolverines 11-4.
Portage opened things up in the second with Joey Moffatt scoring goals just 6 seconds apart in the first 2 minutes. Drew Anderson cut the Terriers lead to 2, netting a rebound that put the Wolverines on the board.
The Terriers restored their 3 goal lead with a Braden Billaney marker at 7:32. Turner Ripplinger was able to clean up a puck in front to extend the dogs’ lead for his 9th of the season.
Portage started the third on the penalty kill, but that didn’t stop their offence. Ryan Sokoloski made the perfect pass to Chase Brakel on a shorthanded 2 on 1 and he easily beat Reece Jones with a wrist shot.
Wayway’s Seymour picked up one more for the Wolverines, but it was all Portage as they finished their last home game before the break 6-2.
Petersen earned the win with 28 saves.
The Terriers are back in action tonight in Winnipeg for their last game of 2017. Game time 7:00pm.
