Terriers Win 7th Straight

October 24

Story from www.portageonline.com

The Terriers were pretty in pink last night as they beat the Virden Oil Capitals 5-1 at the PCU Centre.

The “Pink in the Rink” didn’t seem to affect the Terriers early, as Adam Wowryk showed his slick hands at the side of the net tucking it past Patick Zubick within the first two minutes.

Minor penalties in the first period for both teams slowed down the rhythym of play. Virden would notch one before the end of the frame to tie it at one heading into the intermission.

The Terriers seemed to figure things out in the second, outshooting Virden 12-2 and picking up a pair of goals.

The first came from Nick Henry, who slid the puck into the empty net after a huge rebound was kicked out to the side. Brad Bowles got on the board 3 minutes later; he kept his stick on the ice and steered home a perfect pass from Henry who had drawn all the attention.

Pink power continued to propel the Terriers in the third period as Nick Henry one-timed a beautiful cross ice pass from Brock Weston to the back of the net on the power-play.

Wowryk would get his second of the night as he was falling to the ice late in the third. Despite not getting many shots in the game, Nathan Park made some outstanding saves, especially on a Nolan Ross breakaway in the final frame.

The Terriers have now won 7 games in a row, and look to make it 8 when they travel to Virden on Sunday for their “Pink in the Rink” game.
