The preliminary round at the 2019 National Junior A Championship will end with a first-place showdown between unbeaten teams after the Prince George Spruce Kings shut down the Portage Terriers for their third win.

Dylan Anhorn, Chong Min Lee and Ben Brar scored in the first period, and the Spruce Kings held the Terriers to 10 shots on goal in a win Wednesday night. Lee finished with a goal and an assist, while Dustin Manz chipped in a pair of helpers for Prince George, which has allowed only 44 shots in three games.

“[The Terriers] were knocked out of the tournament, but today was still an important game – it was a tune-up game for us. We needed to clean things up and build going into tomorrow against Brooks. We need to have a good start; we’ve struggled with them throughout the tournament. We fixed it today, and tomorrow we need to try and get the crowd out of it early and just play our game.”
