Brandt's big night in Game 4 pushes the Terriers to within a win of SJHL Semi-Final round

The Yorkton Terriers have pushed the defending champion Nipawin Hawks to the brink of elimination after winning Game 4 on Wednesday night, 5-2 at the Farrell Agencies Arena.

The Terriers would get off to their best start of the series as just 4:35 in, Mason Mullaney would add his 4th goal in as many games on the PP to get out in front 1-0. Then two goals just 24 seconds just under 4 minutes later Chantz Petruic and Quin Hobbs would give the home-side a 3-0 lead and that would draw a goalie change from the Hawks as Declan Hobbs was pulled after allowing 3 goals on 10 shots. Before the 1st intermission would come the Hawks cut their deficit to just two once again as  Walker Cote would hammer home a rebound off a Jaxsen Wiebe shot and would get it past Ryan Ouellette for his 2nd of the series to make it 3-1 after 1 period.

In the 2nd, the Hawks add some good chances at the beginning of the period but just didn't get the results and it would be Yorkton getting the only marker as Colby Brandt would capitalize on a Hawks' turnover at the Terrier blue-line and he would go in one beat Patrick Pugliese five-hole to make it a 3 goal lead after 40 minutes.

Josh Lester would cut the Hawks within two once again as he would chip it past Ouellette for his 1st SJHL playoff goal but in the end it would Colby Brandt wrapping up a big night icing the game with his 2nd of the night into the empty net to give the Terriers their 3rd straight win.

Terriers goaltender Ryan Ouellette improved his record to 5-2 in the playoffs after making 32 saves on 34 shots. Meanwhile Hawks starter Declan Hobbs was pulled after allowing 3 goals on 10 shots and he was relieved for Patrick Pugilese who was solid stopping 29 of 30 shots.

So the Terriers have a chance to advance to the SJHL's Final Four on Friday night with a victory in Game number 5 from the Cage in Nipawin. GX94 will broadcast the game with Yorkton Dodge Junior Playoff Hockey, "Sask Milk" pregame show is on the air starting at 7:20 with the PXP kicking off at 7:30.

Bruchkowski's 2 goals leads Terriers to Game 3 home ice win over Nipawin

The Yorkton Terriers have won their 2nd straight in the SJHL Quarter-Final series defeating the Nipawin Hawks 3-2 in Game 3 from the Farrell Agencies Arena.

The Hawks like they did in Game 1 would strike first as Jaxsen Wiebe would beat Ryan Ouellette over the far side for his 1st of the playoffs to make it 1-0. But the Terriers would respond just 1:10 later as Colby Brandt's long shot would hit the stick of Cody Bruchkowski and get past Declan Hobbs for the Cochenour, Ontario's 2nd of the playoff to make it even at 1-1 after 20 minutes.

In the 2nd, Nipawin would regain their one goal lead as Jake Tremblay would find a loose puck and slide past Ouellette for his 3rd of the postseason to make it 2-1. But once again the Terriers would come back to even it up as on the PP, Mason Mullaney took a nice feed from Branden Klatt and walked to the high-slot and beat the Hawks netminder for his 3rd to even it up at 2-2 after 2 periods.

The Terriers would get the only marker of the 3rd at the 4:29 mark and it would stand up as the game winner as Colby Brandt made a nice inside-out move around a Hawks defender and would send it on net where Cody Bruchkowski would tap in for his 2nd of the postseason to give the Terriers the home ice victory.

Terriers G Ryan Ouellette turned aside 29 of 31 shots to earn his 4th playoff win while his counterpart in veteran Declan Hobbs made 24 stops in the loss.

The two teams will go right back at it in Game 4 on Wednesday night from the FAA. GX94 will broadcast the game with Yorkton Dodge Junior Hockey, "Sask Milk" pregame show begins at 7:20 with the PXP starting at 7:30.
