The Portage Terriers lost their second in a row last night as they fell 4-1 to the Virden Oil Capitals.

Mack Hardy and Carter Cowlthorp got the scoring started for Virden in the second half of the first period. The Oil Capitals would have the most pressure early, outshooting Portage 10-6 in the first and 14-9 in the second.

Virden would open up a 3-goal lead halfway through the game when Mack Hardy scored his second of the night on the power play. Chase Brakel would get the Terriers on the board with his 12th of the season at the end of the second. 

Jeran Knorr scored on the power play late in the third period to put the game out of reach. The Terriers struggled on the power play going 0-7, while the Oil Capitals went 2-7. The Terriers were unfortunately missing defensemen Riley Theissen, Jordan Thomson, Nick Doyle, and Layne Toder due to injury. Terrier assistant coach Paul Harland says "We played pretty well despite our back end getting a bit tired with only 5 skaters. Both goaltenders played well."

It was the first game for Portage without captain Adam Wowryk and Ryan Mignault who were traded to Winnipeg and Waywayseecappo on Friday. Full details on the trades can be found here.

The three players the Terriers got in return (James McIsaac, Takato Cox, and Aiden Buhler) each recorded 2 penalty minutes in their first game with Portage, and McIsaac had an assist.

The Terriers are back in action Sunday night at 6:30pm at the PCU Centre.
