Farrell nets game winner as Mils beat Terriers 3-1 on Friday Night

The Melville Millionaires snapped their 3 game losing streak as for the 3rd time this season they defeated their Highway 10 rivals, the Yorkton Terriers 3-1.

It was good pace to the 1st period for both sides, as both times had their fair share of chances early on, but both Matt Kustra and Troy Trombley were solid in their respective nets. The Mils would get on the board with only 34 seconds left in the 1st as captain Allen Kilback would send one on net that snuck through the Terrier goal for his 8th goal of the season to give the Mils a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes.

In the 2nd it was once again a back and forth start to the period, until the Mils killed a Terrier penalty that some very good chances on it, then shortly after it expired Landon Farrell (pictured above) showed his good speed and cut to the middle & jammed it through Kustra for his 8th of the year to give the Mils a 2 goals after 2 periods.

In the 3rd, the Terriers would cut the Mils lead in half just 8:17 into the 3rd frame when Carson Cayer would bang home a rebound in front into the open cage for his 1st SJHL goal to give the Terriers some life at a 2-1 deficit. But Reed Murray would put the icing on the cake with just 3:21 remaining when Reed Murray would beat Kustra high glove side for his 6th, to give the Mils a 3-1 home victory on Friday night.

Troy Trombley rebounded from the loss on Tuesday, to stop 25 shots in the win while Matt Kustra made 28 saves in the losing cause.

The two teams will go right back at it on Saturday night at the Farrell Agencies Arena at 7:30.
