The Terriers continue their winning ways beating the Flyers 2-1 in Winkler.

The first period was back and forth with both teams playing a tight checking game. Park in net for the dogs and Warren in net for the Flyers. The period would end with no score, the officials disallowing a Brakel goal saying it was kicked in. The Terriers outshot the Flyers 16-7.

Portage would take the lead in the second on a big short-handed goal by Shawn Bowles at 7:23. Cam Whyte would score Winkler’s first at 18:28 sending the teams in to the 3rd tied at one.

The Terriers would head into the 3rd on the power play and end up with a 5 on 3 advantage that saw Brad Bowles bury the go ahead goal. The Terriers would then defend a 6 on 4 attack for the last minute of the game as Winkler was on the power play and would pull their goalie.

Gm and Coach Blake Spiller talked about Park’s play in net. “Park made the routine saves and made 3 or 4 big saves. We don’t get 2 points without his performance.”

The Terriers next game is this Friday in Neepawa. Game time 7:30pm.
