The Yorkton Terriers dropped their 2nd straight game at the Mel Heglund Uniplex in La Ronge by losing 5-0 to the Ice Wolves on Saturday afternoon.
The Terriers were looking to get off to a better start than one night ago, well they weren't able to do that as the Ice Wolves would get on the board just 17 seconds in Brendan Barron would bang home his 1st of the year to give the home team an early 1-0 lead. The Terrier would carry most of the play in the opening frame but just couldn't bear down and pot one past La Ronge Ice Wolves net minder Dakota Kenyon. Then late in the 1st, La Ronge would add one on the powerplay as Bryce Fiske's point shot would beat a screened Matt Kustra to give them a 2 goal after 20 minutes. Shots 16-9 Terriers after 1.
In the 2nd, the only offence would come off the stick of Barron again as his shot from the left wing boards would go post and in on Matt Kustra for his 2nd on the P to give the Wolves a 3-0 lead after 2.
The Terriers would have chances in the 3rd, but it would be La Ronge getting the only two goals off the sticks of Cole Porter & Jared Blacquiere to help La Ronge get points in now 8 straight games after a 5-0 win over Yorkton.
18 year old Ice Wolves net minder Dakota Kenyon made 36 saves for his 1st SJHL shutout while Matt Kustra stopped 25 of 30 shots in the loss.
