Terriers Lose Second Straight At Home

Despite outshooting the visiting Kings 45-14, Dauphin handed the Terriers their 2nd straight loss at home.

Portage was off to a great start controlling play and getting pucks to the net, but trailed 2-1 after 20 minutes.

Fobair scored his first of two on the night beating Moore over the left shoulder, Liwiski notching a powerplay marker.

Ty Barnstable back in the line up from injury, banged home a Huston point shot to get the Terriers back within one on the powerplay.

Portage owned the second period in terms of play. Unable to convert on the 5 on 3 early in the frame, Joey Moffatt wired a bullet passed Landsberger from the slot to tie the game at 2 with 6:48 on the clock.

It looked like Portage would start the third with their first lead of the game Barnstable picking up his 2nd poweplay goal with less than a minute to go, but Dauphin answered with Fobair’s 2nd of the night and a 3-3 tie.

The Terriers had their chances in the 3rd to put the game away, but it would be Dauphin’s Buller capitalizing on a pinching defenceman to notch the game winner on the 2 on 1.

Nathan Moore records the loss in net with 10 saves, the Terriers powerplay 2/6.

Portage is on the road to Dauphin tonight looking to redeem last night’s loss, puck drop 7:30pm.
