The Terriers fight back after Friday’s disappointing loss

Brad Bowles with 1 goal and 2 assists in the 7-2 win over Selkirk.

After a tough loss is Selkirk on Friday where the Terriers gave up 5 goals in the first to eventually lose to the Steelers 6-4, they came back on home ice with a quick start, Brad Bowles scoring just 1:02 in to the first period. Hendrix and Henry would quickly follow up with goals of their own and the Terriers were off to the races. Selkirk’s Starodub would find the back of the net at the end of the 1st on the power play cutting Portage’s lead to 2 heading in to the dressing room.

Brakel would put one passed Friesen with the help of line mate Sokoloski to regain the 3 goal lead for Portage 6:38 in to the 2nd, but the Steelers would answer with a goal of their own once again pulling within 2.  Cody Lightfoot would then score his first goal of the year on a beautiful point shot to beat Friesen high blocker.

The third period was all Portage as Lightfoot would follow up with his second goal of the game as well as Cody Haiskanen. The Terriers would pull off an impressive 7-2 win out shooting Selkirk by 20 shots.

The Terriers remain on top of the leader board with 57 points with Winkler and Steinbach tied for 2nd with 50 points each. Winkler with one game at hand on Steinbach and two on Portage.

The Terriers head to Winkler tomorrow night for their 3rd meeting with the Flyers this season, each team coming away with one win. Game time 7:30pm.
