Terriers drop a 3-1 road decision in Nipawin

After getting back in the win column last Saturday night with a shutout win over the Melville Millionaires, the Yorkton Terriers weren't able to build off that win as they fell 3-1 tonight on the road against the Nipawin Hawks. 

It wasn't a good start for the Terriers as the Hawks were able to capitalize on a little bus legs from the Terriers and get some early opportunities but like all game long Dawson MacAuley made some key saves for his club. Then just over 8 minutes into the 1st period the Hawks would get on the board as Chase Thudium would sneak one through for his 13th goal of the season to give the home team a 1-0 lead after 20 Minutes. 

In the 2nd, Nipawin would add to their lead early on at the 3:54 mark, Brandsn Arnold would get the eventual game winner as beat Dawson MacAuley with his 7th to give the Hawks a 2-1 lead. But just a short time later, the Terriers were able to get on the board on the power play as Carson Cayer bounced on a rebound and banged him his 2nd to cut the deficit in half for the Terriers at 2-1 through 2 periods.

The hometown Hawks in the 3rd would ice it on a powerplay of their own as Carter Coben would take a nice feed back door and slip home his 13th of the year to make it a 3-1 Hawks final. 

Joe O'Brien was solid enough for the Hawks stopping 24 shots for the win, while for the Terriers' Dawson MacAuley kept his team in the game and made 35 saves in the losing cause. 

The Terriers will go right back at it on Saturday night when they welcome the Battlefords North Stars at the FAA at 7:30
(**Also of note that this game is the 4th annual Teddy Bear Toss Night, so fans attending the game are asked to bring a new or gently used Teddy Bear to the game and throw it on ice when Terriers score first goal. All teddy bears will be donated to the Yorkton Salvation Army)


Lane Harbor (2G 1A) and Landon Farrell (1G 2A) each has 3 points each as the Melville Millionaires for the 2nd time this week defeated the Battlefords North Stars, this time 6-2. 

Tyler Kreklewich, Greyson Reitmeir, and Dylan Ostertag also scored for the Mils while Troy Trombley made 34 saves for the victory. 

The Mils will return to action on Sunday for an afternoon affair in Wilcox against the Notre Dame Hounds. Game time is 4:30.
