Leipsic scores his 2nd of the game for a 3-1 Portage lead.
The Terriers closed out round one versus the Selkirk Steelers on Friday winning it in 4 straight games. The dogs will play host to either Virden or Winnipeg in the round 2 semi-final starting this Friday at the PCU game time 7:30pm. That series is currently tied at 3 games apiece with game 7 being played in Virden tomorrow night.
Portage was able to knock of Selkirk in game 4 with a decisive 9-3 win with all lines contributing. The Terriers found themselves down one less than two minutes in on a misplayed puck by Park. Selkirk did not hold the lead for long as Leipsic would open the scoring followed by Thiessen and then Leipsic’s second of the game.
Mackey would then feed Knaub a beautiful pass that he would finish to go up by 3. Wowryk would get cross checked by Westlund and the two would tousle getting them both tossed from the game. Shawn Bowles would add one more for the Terriers before heading to the locker room after 40 minutes.
7 goals would be scored in the final frame. Hendrix x2, Shawn Bowles for his second, and Sokoloski for Portage with Derlago and Dudar scoring for Selkirk. Park would pick up his 4th playoff win as a Terrier stopping 21 of 24 shots on the night.
