Terriers make it 2 straight with 5-3 win over Humboldt, Mils Win big in North Battleford.


Trent Cassan says it wasn't the best effort by his club, but a win is a win as the Yorkton Terriers defeated the defending SJHL Champion Humboldt Broncos 5-3 on home ice on Friday. 20-year old Brenden Poncelet opened the scoring for Yorkton 3:40 into the 1st as his seeing-eye wrister caught goaltender Matt Hyrnkiw off guard for his 1st of the season. Then 13:07 into the 2nd frame Zak Majkowski took a nice feed downlow from Derek Falloon and barried his 1st of the season to make it 2-0.
      The Humboldt Broncos would reply 1:58 later on their 5th powerplay chance , Adam Zbitniff got his team on the board to cut the Terriers lead to 2-1.But 3:28 later, the Terriers regained their two goal lead as Jeremy Johnson directed a half-wrister at the net and it got past Hyrnkiw for his 2nd of the season.

        But the Humboldt Broncos didn't want to go down just yet as David Miazga banged ohome the loose puck to cut the lead to 3-2. At 17:06 into the 3rd, Joey Davies skated along the goal line and shot the puck towards the front of the Terrier net and it deflected off a Terrier defenders leg to tie the game at 3. Nathan Murray played hero with 49 seconds to go as he took the loose puck and beat the defender wide and went forehand backhand and slipped it past the goalie to give the Terriers their final lead which they wouldn't give up. Tyler Giebel would ice 20 seconds later to put the icing on the cake.

         The Yorkton Terriers were out shot 37-24, and goaltender Kale Thomson was the best player on the ice as he seemed solid and poised and nothing rattled him, and he was the difference or the result couldve been in the opposite direction

The Terriers next action will be on Sunday when they visit Wilcox to take on the Notre Dame Hounds at 7:30
