Terriers Back In Series, Game 4 Tonight

By admin

The OCN Blizzard and Portage Terriers will meet again tonight in Game 4 of the MJHL Finals. The Terriers defeated the Blizzard last night 3-2 winning their first game of the Finals. OCN now leads the series 2-1. With the Portage win last night it guarantees this series will go at least 5 games and will be returning to the GLMC in OCN on Sunday night.  (Read more...)

But first, it’s Game 4 and it goes tonight. The Terriers have some life after picking up the win last night in Game 3.

They jumped out to an early lead, got some puck luck, and outlasted OCN for the victory.

Takato Cox would score first as he would cycle the OCN zone, get a good shot off and bury his own rebound.

In the second period, Portage would add to their lead as Josh Martin would score on a breakaway thanks to some puck luck off the glove of an OCN D-man at center ice. OCN would claw back quickly though as Lantz Hiebert would score on a tip off a Brady Keeper point shot cutting the lead in half. Before the end of the second period George King would tie things at two, as he would slide one along the ice past Kurtis Chapman.

The Terriers would go up for good in the third period as Takato Cox would score his second of the night on a great slap shot high over the glove of Brett Epp. 

On the night the OCN Penalty Kill was outstanding, the Power Play not so much. The Terriers scored their second goal of the game short-handed.
