The action-packed MJHL/SJHL Showcase came to a close yesterday in Winnipeg after three high-scoring contests.
Terrier representatives Daniel Siso and Brandon McCartney fared quite well on day one but yesterday their team was on the wrong end of a 6-0 loss.
The second game of the day was a little more favourable for the Manitoban squad. MJHL 20U Red defeated SJHL 20U White 4-2, and Portage’s Hayden Lacquette was named one of the two stars of the game. The Terriers' leading-scorer picked up two points and scored the lone goal in the third period.

Parker Scherr, Jordan Murray, and Austin Peters had the opportunity to team up with two former teammates, Tyler Dodgson and Brandon Funk, in the final outing. Unfortunately for them, MJHL U18 White was defeated 8-2 by SJHL 18U Blue.
After this two-day hiatus, the Portage Terriers are now back to regularly scheduled programming and will play their next game tomorrow against the Winnipeg Freeze.
