Terriers Tame the Wolverines

The Terriers offence proved to be too much for the Wolverines tonight in their first meeting this season. Portage outshot Wayway 43-18 with an 8-1 final.

Rylee Zimmer opened the scoring tonight in his first of 3 on the night picking up the hat trick in just his second game as a dog.

Ty Barnstable scored the eventual game winner in the first for a 2-0 Terrier lead after 20 minutes.

Chase Brakel picked up the lone marker of the 2nd when Stewart misplayed a puck behind his own net putting it on the Terrier Captain’s stick on the wall.

Wayway showed some life early in the third with Vautour picking up a powerplay goal just :23 seconds in, but James McIsaac answered 30 seconds later.

Portage went on to score 4 more goals in the third, including a shorthanded goal. Taylor, Zimmer x 2 and Dwyer all contributing.

Brendan Benoit picked up his first win on the season making 17 saves on 18 shots.

Portage hosts the Neepawa Natives tomorrow night at Stride Place, game time 6:30pm.
