Terriers punish the Blues in a home and home stand

Weston earns four assists in his first game back since early December and a lower body injury.

It was all Terriers in a home and home stand with the Blues this weekend.

Friday night the Terriers were on the road to the Iceplex to face the Winnipeg Blues for the 5th time this season. The Blues started off strong with a very physical game getting the early lead on a Browning goal from the point. Nault would then take a 5 minute hitting from behind penalty that would prove costly for Winnipeg as the Terriers would capitalize twice in that time. Brad Bowles would score both goals with Weston picking up two assists and Shawn Bowles picking up one.

The Terriers would go on to score 4 more unanswered goals, 2 on the power play (S.Bowles x 2, Orr and MacDonald ) for the 6-1 win over Winnipeg.

Weston in his first game back since a lower body injury in early December was noticeable on the ice earning 4 assists. “It felt amazing to be back. It was nice to get the points, but beating Winnipeg was better for the team…with 2 big wins for us on the weekend. We need to keep it rolling in to the upcoming week.”

The Blues would then try to shake things off as they headed to the PCU for a Saturday night game.

The Terriers would start right where they left off with Shawn Bowles scoring his first of the night at 1:02 in the first period. McIsaac would answer just a minute and a half later for the Blues in their only goal of the game. The Terriers would pot 3 more goals in the first (Stewart x 2 and Hendrix ) for  4-1a commanding first period lead. Gnidziejko would let in 4 goals on 10 shots and that would be the end of his night.

The final score was 8-1 with goals coming from S.Bowles, MacDonald and Wowryk with Dean Stewart completing his first MJHL hat trick. Park would pick up both wins for the Terriers.

Overall the Terriers outshot the Blues 68-40 on the weekend.

The Terriers remain in first 10 points up on the 2nd place Steinbach Pistons with 2 games at hand. The Terriers next game is Tuesday January 12th in Winkler.
