The Humboldt Broncos took a 2-1 series lead in the Best of 7 Canalta Cup Final with a 3-2 win over the Yorkton Terriers.
The Terriers opened the scoring just over 5 mins into the opening frame as Tyler Giebel would get his 3rd goal of the playoffs on the Powerplay to make it 1-0 for Yorkton. It would stay that way until Justin Lund would rip a sshot past Dawson McAuley to make it a 1-1 after 1 period.
Lots went on in the 2nd period,including a very scrap between John Odgers and Rhett Blackmur, but maybe a little penalty trouble for the Terriers which included a 5 minute Checking from Behind major to J Odgers, as the Broncos would get 2 Powerplay goals Adam Antkowiak and Alex Forsberg to give Humboldt a 3-1 lead after 40 minutes of play.
In the third, the Terriers would cut their deficit to within 1 as Dakota Odgers would get his 4th goal of the playoffs off a deflection from Patrick Martens shot to make 3-2 but unfortunately that's as close as the Terriers would get.
Matt Hrnykiw stopped 34 of 36 shots for the victory while Dawson McAuley stopped 30 shots but was tagged for the loss.
Terriers now down 2-1 in the series with Game 4 taking place on Thursday back in Yorkton , 7:20/7:30 on GX94.
