Stampeders' win; Terriers lose in Mar. 12th SJHL/MJHL Playoff Recap

The Yorkton Terriers' dropped Game 4 of their SJHL Quarter-Final on Wednesday night, 5-1 to the La Ronge Ice Wolves that evened up the Best of 7 series at 2-2.

The Ice Wolves grabbed the only goal of the 1st period on the PP as Stuart Pond walked in from the right half boards and snapped it far side on Matthew Pesenti for his 1st of the series to give La Ronge a 1-0 advantage after 1 period.

For the 2nd straight night, the Ice Wolves grabbed a two goal lead early in the 2nd as while on a 5 on 3 PP it would be James Philpott going top-shelf on Pesenti for his 1st of the series to make it 2-0 just 4:26 into the middle frame.

But the Terriers responded rather quickly as 22 seconds later, Keenan Taphorn made a nice defensive play at his own blue-line that sprung him on a breakaway and he made no mistake scoring the shorthanded marker, his 3rd in as many nights to cut their deficit to just one.

La Ronge though regained their two goal lead late as Spencer Kennedy added his third of the playoffs converting a breakaway chance making 3-1 after 40 minutes.

The Ice Wolves added two more in the 3rd from Booker Chacalias and Ben Manson into the empty net to pace them to the win.

The series now shifts back to Yorkton for Game 5 on Friday night at 7:30 from the Farrell Agencies Arena.
