Martens 2G leads Terriers to 3-2 Game 2 victory over Broncos.

The Yorkton Terriers continued their strong effort from Friday night , and showed another strong game but this time with a different outcome as they defeated the Humboldt Broncos 3-2 on home ice to even up their Best of 7 Canalta Final at 1 game apiece.

The first period was scoreless, despite some glorious chances both ways but both goaltenders Dawson McAuley for Yorkton and Broncos' Matt Hrynkiw were solid in the first frame.

The Terriers would draw first blood in the 2nd period though at 3:42 as he capitalized on the powerplay with his team leading 9th goal to make it a 1-0 Terriers. Then half way through the middle frame, recently turned 17 year old Dakota Odgers would deflect in a Chase Norrish wrist shot on the powerplay as well for his 3rd goal of the playoffs to give the Terriers a 2 goal lead. But before the end of the period Joey Davies' would get Humboldt on the board as he walked across the Terrier blueline and got a wrist shot through McAuley for his league leading 13th goal of the playoffs. to make it a 2-1 lead for Yorkton after 40 minutes.

But the Terriers would come back in the 3rd in a hurry as just 28 seconds in Martens would rip a snap shot top shelf on Hrynkiw for his 2nd of the night and 10th of the playoffs to make it 3-1. Just over 6 minutes in the 3rd though, Ryan Aubertin would pull the Broncos within 1 with his 1st of the playoffs but thats as close as they would get to give the Terriers a 3-2 Game 2 victory.

Dawson McAuley stopped 35 of 37 shots for the win while Matt Hrynkiw stopped 28 of 31 shots and was tagged with the loss.

The Terriers powerplay was once again very good as they were 2 for 3 in the hockey game while the Broncos with the man advantage were 1-3

The series is now tied up at 1 game apiece with Game 3 taking place back in Humboldt on Tuesday night 7:20/7:30 on GX94 from the Elgar Peterson Arena, Game 4 back in Yorkton on Thursday night at the FAA
