Terriers drop 8th straight, 7-2 to Notre Dame
The Yorkton Terriers had their losing streak increase to 8 games on Monday night with a 7-2 loss to the Notre Dame Hounds.
It was a terrific start to the opening period for the Terriers as they got an early 5 on 3 and 19 year old Riley Hunt would be able to convert as he would get his 12th goal of the season to give the Terriers an early 1-0 lead. Then just 45 seconds later, on now a 5 on 4 advantage rookie Brandon Sookro was able to squeeze out his team leading 16th goal of the year, to give the home team a 2 goal lead. But then a turning point as the momentum changed when Sam Aulie was rewarded with a penalty shorthanded and he would be able to convert to get the Hounds on the board and cut the lead in half at 2-1. The Hounds would be able to score 4 more in the opening frame as Aulie would another along with Martin (2), Rhett Kingston and Corey Anderson to give the visitors a 5-2 lead after 1 period.
After a 7 goal period, there would be only a single marker scored in the 2nd period, as Andrew Cummings would show some pretty nice hands as he would go top shelf on Kustra for his 7th goal of the season to add to the Hounds lead, and make it a 6-2 lead for visitors after 2 periods.
The Hounds would add one more in the 3rd, as Langenburg product Evan Werel would rip home his 8th goal of the season on the powerplay to make it a 7-2 Hounds victory, (their 5th straight win). Meanwhile the Terriers dropped their 8th straight decision.
Benjamin Patt made 31 saves for his 9th victory of the season in goal while Matt Kustra stopped 25 shots in the loss.
The Terriers will play for the 2nd straight night on Tuesday when they host the Estevan Bruins at 7:30 from the FAA.
