It was another perfect game for the Portage Terriers as they blanked the Waywayseecappo Wolverines last night 4-0 at the PCU Centre. Portage has now won 7 in a row and have started 2016 with a record of 8-0-1.
Newly acquired forward Jeremey Leipsic was an important player for Portage last night as he factored in all 4 goals. The first goal came halfway through the first period as the puck squirted out to the side of the net where he was waiting on the power play. Minor penalties slowed down the pace of play at times throughout the game, with 13 being called in total.
The Terrier power play would strike again when Leipsic received a perfect pass from Brett Orr to spring him on a 2-0 with Chase Brakel. Leipsic held the puck just long enough to draw the goaltender over, before he slid a pass across to Brakel who finished it off. Portage was outshooting the Wolverines 23-7 after two periods.
Waywayseecappo started to get things going in the third period despite Portage adding two goals from Chase Brakel and Riley Thiessen. Josh Bykowski had to make some key saves down the stretch in order to pick up the shutout. He stopped all 22 that he faced.
Chase Fincaryk was in the lineup for Portage; his first game due to injury since October 28th.
