A strong appearance in net by Aiken gives the Terriers a chance to win.
The Terriers offence struggled as they pull out a 2-1 final over Neepawa for their 4th straight win.
Neepawa came out strong in the first, but only registered 6 shots in the period. Portage with just 8 of their own were able to find the back of the net with a powerplay goal from Ty Enns just as a 5 on 3 expired.
The Natives took it to Portage in the second outshooting the dogs 18-4. Bliid scored his 6th of the season at the 1:56 point, but the Natives McCammon answered on a two on one halfway through the frame. Brock Aiken made some key saves that kept the Terriers on top and they went in to the dressing room with a 2-1 lead.
The dogs were able to hang on in the third to pick up the win. Coach and GM Blake Spiller gives credit for the 2 points to a great outing by Aiken who made another 10 saves in the period.
The Terriers next game is on the road where they meet the Flyers on Wednesday November 9th, game time 7:30pm.
