For the 4th time in 5 years, the Terriers are headed to the finals for the Turnbull Cup. After an unexpected early exit from the playoffs last season, Portage is looking to put it all together.
For the Swan Valley Stampeders, this will be their first trip to the final.
Portage and Swan finished 1st and 2nd respectively in the regular season, with Swan having the edge winning 4 of the 6 games against each other, Portage winning the last match up February 22nd.
‘They’re a good team, but I think we match up well with them. We’ll be looking to get a lot of pucks on net and get on the forecheck. We need to stay disciplined and apply enough pressure so they make mistakes.’ – Assistant Captain Sam Huston
pmth the teams so evenly matched, Portage will be looking to get off to a great start tomorrow in front of the home crowd before heading up to Swan Valley Sunday for Game 2.
Veteran forward and Assistant Captain Chase Brakel thinks the boys are ready. ‘We need to shut down their top line and stay out of the box. I think our experience having been here before will play to our advantage.’
Puck drops on Game One tomorrow at 7:30pm at Stride Place.
