It was not a great night for the Terriers in Winkler last night.

The Terriers gave up 3 goals in the first period en route to a 6-1 loss and were outshot 44-33.

It was all Flyers with the lone Terrier goal coming from Turner Santin at the 2 minute mark in the 3rd.

The Flyers win was their 1st at home vs the Terriers this season and has them up 2-1 in our 3 meetings thus far.

Head Coach and GM Blake Spiller admits it was a tough night for his club. – “I thought they were good (Flyers). Our inexperience kind of showed a little bit at times here, and it just seemed to be tough on us here and full credit to their club they played really well. I look forward to playing them on the 31st in Portage.”

The Terriers are currently playing without 3 of their top Defenceman with Orr and Stewart playing in the Junior A. Challenge for Team Canada West and Brock Weston out with an injury. The Terriers have 2 more games before the break suiting up at home on Friday against OCN and then heading to Neepawa Saturday for their last game before Christmas.

Spiller looks at tonight’s loss as one night at the rink and says his club will be ready to go Friday.
