Terriers lose heartbreaker 6-5 in OT to Estevan

The Yorkton Terriers got a point but lost a thriller on Tuesday night, 6-5 in overtime to the Estevan Bruins at Affinity Place.

The Bruins got off to a hot start in the 1st as Kaelen Holt would finish off a nice back door feed for his 11th of the season to give the home side an early 1-0 lead. It would stay like that until the late stages of the opening frame as Regan Seiferling would one-time home a nice feed in front from Corwin Stevely for his 4th of the campaign to make it 1-1. But just 27 seconds later Matt McNeil would regain the Bruins' one goal lead as he would snipe home his 8th to make it a 2-1 Estevan lead after 1 period.

In the 2nd just 4:32 in, McKenzie Welke would bang home a loose puck for his 2nd of the season to make it 2-2. They would grab their first lead just 1:11 later as Colby Haugen's long wrist would beat Curtis Meger for his 1st SJHL marker to give the Terriers a 3-2 lead. But Lyndon Pastachak would respond for the Bruins with his 7th of the campaign to tie it up at 3-3 after 40 minutes. Shots 28-27 Terriers.

The Terriers would regain their advantage just 0:47 into the 3rd frame as Jordan Ross would bat home his 3rd to make it a 4-3 Terrier lead. But half way through the 3rd Matt McNeil would get his 2nd of the night and 9th of the year to knot it up at 4-4. Then with just over 3 minutes to go, McKenzie Welke would sneak home his 2nd of the night to pull the Terriers in front at 5-4. Josh Rieger would force overtime with just 27 seconds left in regulation hammering one home past Andrew Suriano for his 3rd to make it 5-5.

Kaelen Holt would give the Bruins the extra point with a PP goal in overtime at the 2:51 mark to make it a 6-5 Estevan Bruin victory.

Andrew Suriano made 46 saves on 52 shots for the Terriers in the loss while Curtis Meger made 12 saves on 15 shots in relief of Nathan Alalouf who made 17 saves before he left the game with a lower-body injury.

The Terriers return to action Friday when they head on the road to battle the Battlefords North Stars

Late on Sunday evening, the La Ronge Ice Wolves Board of Directors relieved Head Coach and GM Shawn Martin of his duties.

Bell adds that the current group of assistant coaches will take over duties for now, but he says they are actively looking for a new head coach and general manager.
"We’d like to thank Shawn (Martin) for his passion and dedication for the last four years," said Bell. "We wish Shawn all the success in his future endeavors."

The Swan Valley Stampeders, powered by a 3 goal 1st period earned their third win of the season defeating the Selkirk Steelers on Friday night by a score of 3-2 at the Selkirk Recreational Complex.

The Stamps got off to a tremendously quick start as just 7 seconds in Connor Navrot (pictured above) would go top shelf on Hayden Dola for his 4th of the season to give Swan an early 1-0 lead. They would make it 2-0 lead just over the half way point of the opening frame as Jason Cohan made a nifty move around the Steelers goalie for his 1st of the season and 1st as a Stampeder. Then Trevar Mann would make it a 3 goal lead as he would finish off a nice feed in front from Josh Martin for his 2nd of the year to make it 3-0 Swan Valley after 20 minutes with shots being 11-10 Stamps.

In the 2nd, the Steelers would pick things up and would be the better team in the middle frame and would get on the board as Brady Castellano would jam it through the 5-hole of Owen Liskiewicz for his 2nd to make it a 2 goal game at 3-1 Stamps after 40 minutes. Selkirk outshot Swan 12-5 in the 2nd and led the Stamps in shots 22-16 after 2 periods.

Connor Barley would add one just past the midway point of the 3rd period, his 5th of the season as he deflected one past Liskewicz but thats as close as they would get as the Stamps would hold on for a 3-2 win in Selkirk

New Jersey product Owen Liskiewicz turned aside 34 of 36 shots for his 1st win in the MJHL for the Stamps while Steelers net minder Hayden Dola stopped 23 shots in the defeat.

They would add to their lead just over 6 minutes later as Dexter Kuczek would snipe home his 7th of the year to give the home team a 2 goal lead. But the Stamps power play would finally click on their 4th opportunity as Connor Navrot would finish off a nice passing play from Trevar Mann for his 4th of the season to cut the Stamps' deficit to just 2-1 after 40 minutes.

The Wolverines would get on the board early on just 2:06 in as Brandon Stanley (pictured above) would take a nice feed in front from Landyn Cochrane and hammered home his 4th of the season to make it a 1-0 lead. It would stay like that until the 12:58 mark as Stanley would add his 2nd of the night & 5th of the season on a nice individual effort to give the home team a 2-0 lead after 1 period. Shots were 12-9 Dauphin.

The Kings would get on the board just 6:45 into the 2nd as Matthew Greening would bang home his 4th of the season to the cut the visitors deficit to 2-1. But just a short time later, Buchanan produt Korwin Shewchuk would capitalize on a Dauphin turnover and go top shelf on Tanner Douglas for his 4th of the campaign to regain Wayway's 2 goal lead at 3-1. Wolverines would grab their first 3 goal lead of the night just over 2 and a half minutes later as Landyn Cochrane would jam home a PP marker to make it 4-1.

But Stanley would complete his hat-trick and regain the home teams 3 goal lead with 6th of the season to make it a 5-2 lead after 40 minutes.

Rhett Lough would make it 6-2 Wayway just 3:27 into the 3rd with his first of the campaign. Riese Gaber would wrap up the scoring for the Kings with his 1st of the season but it would be a little too late as Wolverines would hang on for a 6-3 win.

Stamps outshoot Kings heavily but fall on the road, 6-1 in Dauphin

The Swan Valley Stampeders were unable to win their 2nd straight on Wednesday night as they fell 6-1 to the Dauphin Kings from Credit Union Place.

In the first, the Stamps would get off to a quick start as they would strike first as Brian Harris would finish off a nice feed from Josh Martin for his 2nd of the season to give the visitors an early 1-0 lead. The Kings would answer back at the 9:13 mark of the opening frame as Daniel Chartrand would sneak one through Owen Liskiewicz for his 2nd to tie it up at 1-1. Just 2 minutes later, they would get their first lead as big Austin Douglas would take a nice feed in front and go top shelf for his 1st MJHL goal to make it 2-1. The Kings would add to their lead with 4:04 remaining as Keaton Leininger would capitalize on a rebound to give the home team a 3-1 lead after 20 mins with the Stamps leading in the shot column 17-8.

After the scoreless 2nd period, the Stamps would once again have chances to cut back into the Kings lead but just couldn't prevail and then the home team would add three more late in the 3rd off the sticks off Carson Romeril, Austin Douglas and Kyle Oleksiuk to give the Kings their 2nd win of the season, 6-1 over the Stampeders.

Brandon Holtby was the difference in the Kings' goal making 50 saves on 51 shots for his 2nd win of the season while Owen Liskewicz in his Stamps' debut made 22 saves in the losing cause.
