In a Wednesday Friday home and home stand with the Kings, Dauphin and Portage traded wins.
Wednesday started in Portage where Ty Enns opened the scoring on a beautiful dish from Ryan Sokoloski in the first period and the Terriers outshot the Kings 15-4.
Former Terriers’ Leininger and Clark evened the score in the second beating Aiken with the backhand. Dauphin then took the lead on a goal from Hore at the 10:32 mark of the second. A little over a minute later Brakel would hit Enns for his second goal of the game with a beautiful cross ice pass. Clark scored shorthanded to give Dauphin the lead heading in to the dressing room at the end of the second.
Portage mounted just 4 shots in the 3rd and were unable to come back on the Kings. Hore scored his second of the game for insurance and a 4-2 final over the Terriers.
The Terriers were on the road Friday to Dauphin for a 7:30 pm start looking for payback.
Portage was on the board first with a goal from Chase Brakel assists coming from McIsaac and Leipsic. Piper would tie the game at one just a couple minutes later for Dauphin with his first of the year.
McIsaac got his second point of the game scoring at the 5:22 point of the second and once again Dauphin answered quickly to tie the game at 2 with a goal from Friesen. The tie would stand sending the Terriers in to overtime for just the second time this season.
Nick Doyle drove the puck down the left side and feathered a beautiful pass to McIsaac to beat Esposito for the win.
The Terriers next game is Sunday in Winnipeg for their first meeting of the regular season.
