With nine players out due to injury and illness the Terriers still managed to pull off the win against Wayway at home last night.
Newly acquired McIsaac picked up the first goal of the game and his first as a Terrier at 11:09 of the first. Not done yet, McIsaac would strike again beating Lorenson as Cody Thompson’s point shot rebounded of the boards to him in front.
It was another night of firsts as Takato Cox also netted his first as a Terrier with an unassisted effort at the 5:30 mark of the second frame. Wayway looking to stay in it battled back with goals from Cochrane and Durdle to cut the Terriers lead to one heading in to third.
Ryan Hendrix picked up his fourth of the season to give the Terriers a little breathing room in the 3rd, but Wayway would score on the powerplay on a McIsaac minor with 1:21 to go in the game. In a last ditch effort, the Wolverines pulled their goalie to try and force the extra frame, but Leipsic slammed the door shut with the empty netter for a 5-3 Terrier final.
Chapman picked up his first win as a Terrier stopping 20 shots in the effort. The Terriers next game is at home on Wednesday evening where they play host to the Dauphin Kings. Game time 7:30pm.
