The Portage Dogs Steal One Out In Virden
A solid goaltending performance and some sweet moves in the shootout boosted the Portage Terriers to their first victory since October 11th. Playing their first game inside Tundra Oil & Gas Place, the Terriers opened things quickly against the hometown Virden Oil Capitals. Just 35 seconds into the game, captain Kajon McKay buried his 6th of the season, giving Portage the early advantage. Adam Iwan put together one of his best performances of the year between the pipes, stopping 31 of 33 shots in the win. The 19-year-old veteran says he was feeling confident all night long and the late 5-on-3 penalty kill was a big boost of momentum. Next up for the Terriers is a meeting with the Dauphin Kings on Sunday night at the PCU Centre. The Dogs record now sits at 7-4-1, good for 15 points and second place in the Addison Division. Both GDI goaltenders put up top performances in the game. Iwan stopped 31 of 33 and Edmonds pushed out 44 of 46. For more on this game Click Here.
