Terriers' 7 game win streak snapped as they lose 4-1 to Humboldt

The Yorkton Terriers had their 7 game win snapped on Tuesday night as they fell 4-1 at home to the Humboldt Broncos at the FAA. 

The game would start off with a bang as just 4 seconds in as David Stumborg and Daylan Gatzke would square off in a spirited scrap. That might have sparked the Broncos as they would open up the scoring just 12:14 into the 1st period as David Miazga would get the marker his 12th goal of the season to give the Broncos 1-0 lead after 1 period of play. 

In the 2nd period, the teams would go back and forth with teams exchanging chances but both goaltenders Cade Spencer and Kale Thomson shut the door and kept the game at 1-0 Humboldt after 40 minutes of play. 

In the 3rd period, just 5:15 into it as Matt Audette would get the marker to increase the Broncos lead to 2-0. Just minutes later, Thomas Stanislavski would split the Terriers D with some speed and put it top shelf on Thomson for his 3rd of the season to move it to 3-0. But the Terriers would provide some life and get on the board just 1:39 later as Tayler Thompson would deflect home his 17th goal of the season to move it to 3-1. Jarret Fontaine would ice it though into the empty net in the final 2 minutes to make it a 4-1 Bronco final. 

Cade Spencer was solid for the Broncos in goal stopping 34 shots while Kale Thomson turned aside 25 shots in a losing cause. 

The Terriers still remain in top spot in the Viterra division and SJHL and will try and get back on the win track as they start a 2 game road trip on Friday in La Ronge before visiting the Melfort Mustangs on Saturday night. 

In the MJHL, 

The Swan Valley Stampeders won their 2nd straight as they scored 4 unanswered goals in the 3rd period to defeat the Wayway Wolverines 4-2. 

Brayden McDonald led the way with 2 goals while Nic Erb and Carter Johnson scored for the Stamps while Dylan Favell chipped in with 2 assists.  Devon Schade and Craig Fournier replied for the Wolverines. 

Cole Holowenko stopped 22 shots for the win for Swan while Mitch Wiebe stopped 33 in a losing cause. 

The teams will go right back at it against each other Friday night in Swan River at the Centennial Arena. Pregame show 7:20, PXP at 7:30 on GX94.
