Finding themselves down early the Terriers were unable to recover last night at Stride Place.
Dalke and Thiessen each found the back of the net early beating Lasse Petersen for a 2-0 lead 3:27 in to the game. Looking to change things up, Portage made a goaltending change.
Brakel fresh off a Canada West try out would score the lone Portage goal on the powerplay in the second with a 2 man advantage.
Although there were chances in the third to tie things up, the Oil Caps potted 2 empty net goals for a 4-1 final.
Benoit stopped all 15 shots faced, with Petersen recording the loss.
The Terriers will head to Winnipeg for their next 2 games as they take part in the MJHL Showcase next week.
