The South Eastern Manitoba Hockey League needs a seventh game to decide its champion.
It took until triple overtime until a winner was decided.
The Portage Terriers dropped Game 1 of the MJHL semifinal 5-4 to the Steinbach Pistons on the road in Steinbach tonight.
It was too little, too late for the Portage Islanders.
As the old adage goes: you’re never in trouble until you lose a game at home.
It wouldn't be an MJHL playoff without the Terriers and Pistons squaring off.
The offence was scoring in bunches.
The Terriers can punch their ticket to the semifinals on home ice.
Nobody knows as well as the Islanders how quickly a 2-0 series lead can evaporate.
