Terriers get a point but fall in overtime in their Home Opener to the Red Wings.

The Yorkton Terriers earned 3 out of a possible 4 points on SJHL Opening Weekend after a 3-2 overtime loss on Sunday night to the Weyburn Red Wings

The Red Wings would strike first on the power play as Erik Olson's long point shot would be deflected in nicely by newcomer Derick Smith for his 1st SJHL goal that got past Logan Bateman to give the visitors an early 1-0 lead. The Terriers would answer back 9 minutes later as the loose puck would be jammed home by veteran Quin Hobbs to tie it up at 1-1 after 20 minutes. Shots 15-9 Red Wings.

The visitors would regain that one goal lead just 3:39 into the 2nd as Cole Woodliffe would bang home his 1st of the season to make it 2-1. But once again the Terriers would respond as 20 year old Kaleb Bell would finish off a nice passing play from William Brochu for his 1st with 5:02 left in the middle frame as the two teams were deadlocked at 2 after 2 periods. Shots were 29-14 Weyburn.

After a scoreless 3rd period, it would be Matthew Jones netting the overtime winner as his snapshot beat Bateman for his 1st SJHL goal to give the Red Wings the extra point.

Arik Weersink made 25 saves on 27 shots for his 1st win the SJHL, while Logan Bateman put together his 2nd straight solid start making 40 saves in the losing cause.

The Terriers next game will be on Thursday night when they visit the Notre Dame Hounds. GX94 will broadcast the game with Yorkton Dodge Junior Hockey, pregame 7:50 pxp at 8PM from the Duncan McNeil Arena.

Other SJHL Result had the Humboldt Broncos come back to beat the Notre Dame Hounds 4-3 in the SO.
