In the 2nd, the Terriers would add to their lead very early into the middle frame as Quin Hobbs would score his 2nd goal in as many night as he would go back-hand shelf on Brandon Wells for his 3rd of the year to make it 2-0. Then almost half way through the 2nd period on the power play, Evan Werle would rifle home his 2nd to give Yorkton a 3-0 lead after 40 minutes with the Terriers leading the shot column 33-14.

The 3rd period would be a scoreless one but the period would also see 3 fights in totals between the two rivals.
