DUKES BEAT TERRIERS FOR FIRST WIN, KEEP SEMIFINAL HOPES ALIVE

The win keeps Wellington’s semifinal hopes alive – a victory by Pembroke over Vernon in Thursday’s late game puts the Dukes into the final four, while a Vernon victory leaves three teams at 1-3 and means a tie-breaking formula would be required.

Zarbo and Evans scored twice and added an assist each, Darcy Murphy and Brian Bunnett had goals and Rudy finished with three assists to give Wellington (1-3) the win despite being outshot 40-25. Jordan Ruby had his best game in the Dukes’ goal, making 37 saves.

Tyler Moore, Cory More and Yvan Pattyn scored the goals for Portage (1-3), which lost its third in a row after opening the tournament with a win last Sunday. The goals from More and Pattyn in the final 15 minutes could be important for the Terriers if Vernon beats Pembroke and math comes into the equation.
