Terriers; Stampeders record victories on Wednesday night Junior A Recap

The Yorkton Terriers earned their 5th victory of the season on Wednesday night beating the Estevan Bruins 5-4 in the shootout.

In the 1st, the Bruins would get the only goal as Kaelan Holt would take a nice pass in front from Hayden Guilderson and he would make no mistake slipping it five-hole of Joe Marcouiller for his 15th of the season to give the home-side a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes. Shots 16-6 Estevan.

It was a much more eventful 2nd period as the Terriers would get the equalizer just 6:58 into the middle frame as Cody Dubas' long point shot would beat Matt Lukacs for his 1st to make it 1-1. The Terriers would grab their first lead just a short time later as Evan Nicholas would take a nice feed in front from Kaleb Bell for his 2nd of the year making it 2-1 Terriers. The Bruins would come back though with 2 goals late in the 2nd period just 1:08 apart of the sticks of Kaelan Holt and Hayden Guilderson to give the home team a 3-2 after 2 periods.

The Bruins would add to their lead just 2:09 into the 3rd as Guilderson would add his 2nd of the evening and 11th of the season giving them their first 2 goal lead of the night. But cue the Terriers comeback as first Matthew Jones (pictured above) would grab a loose puck & snap home his 1st as a Terriers and 2nd of the season making it 4-3. Then with just 3:06 remaining in regulation, Karsten McDonald would receive a nice feather pass across from Chantz Petruic and one time home his 1st SJHL goal to even it up at 4-4 and send it into overtime.

After a scoreless overtime that would see the Bruins get a power play which they couldn't convert on the game would need to be decided in the shootout.

In the shootout, Kaelan Holt would give the Bruins the early lead but then it would be Jarrid Morhart and Matthew Jones scoring the next ones to give the Terriers the extra point.

20 year old Joe Marcouiller was outstanding in the Terriers crease making 51 saves on 55 shots for his 2nd win of the season while Matt Lukacs made 25 saves in the losing cause.

The Terriers' next action will be home and home series this weekend as first up they'll visit the Humboldt Broncos on Saturday night and then return home for the return date on Sunday for a 6PM puck drop at the Farrell Agencies Arena.

Elsewhere in the SJHL,

The Melville Millionaires dropped a match-up with the Notre Dame Hounds for the 2nd straight night, losing 3-2 at home at the Horizon Credit Union Center.

The Mils would get out to an early 2-0 lead in the 2nd period on goals by Issac Embree and Montana Streit but the Hounds would score 3 unanswered goals, two by Tim Gould and the game winner from Connor Mylymok to give the Hounds the 2 points.

Jack Ryan made 18 saves for the Hounds to earn his 4th win of the season against the Mils while 18 year old Connor Dochuk turned aside 28 shots in the loss.

Mils' 3 game win streak snapped on Tuesday in Wilcox

The Melville Millionaires had their 3 game win streak snapped on Tuesday night, falling 4-1 in Wilcox against the Notre Dame Hounds

The Hounds would get the only goal of the 1st period and it would be on a very fortunate bounce. Riley Perka would ring it around the boards and it would take a nice bounce off a stanchion right in front for Marshall Wilton who made no mistake for his 9th of the year to make it 1-0 Notre Dame after 1 period.

Notre Dame would add to their lead in the 2nd as Tim Gould would take a nice feed across from Marshall Wilton and hammer home his 4th of the season to give the Hounds a 2-0 lead on Melville after 40 minutes.

The Mils would cut their deficit in half just over 4 minutes into the 3rd period as Damian Bentz would jump out on a rebound and bang home his 11th of the season and 4th in as many games to make it a 2-1 game. But the Hounds would once again respond with some insurance at the 12:11 mark as Jared Hamm would finish off a nice passing play for his 5th of the season to make it 3-1 and then with just 1:55 left, Colby Brandt would pounce on a loose puck to secure the 2 points for the home side.

Jacob Standen made 21 saves for the Hounds to earn his 11th win of the season while Colby Entz turned aside 33 shots in the losing cause.

Mils; Terriers; Stampeders all victorious on Wednesday night

The Melville Millionaires earned their 8th win of the season on Wednesday night as they came back to beat the Humboldt Broncos 3-2 in overtime.

After the scoreless 1st period, the Broncos would get on the board half way through the middle frame as Logan Schatz would pick up a loose puck after a broken play and slide it across to Logan Hunter who would one-time home his team-leading 10th goal of the season to give the home side a 1-0 after 40 minutes.

The Mils would even things up just a dozen seconds into the 3rd period as rookie defenceman Daniel Liberty would walk across the blue-line and let one go that would find its way through goaltender Jacob Wasserman for the Edmonton product's 3rd of the year to make it 1-1.

Saturday's Local Sports Recap

(Curling Canada Press Release)

Ontario’s Mike Anderson and his team from Thornhill stole its way to victory Saturday in the championship game of the 2018 Canadian Mixed Curling Championship, presented by Westman Communications Group.

Anderson, playing alongside vice-skip Danielle Inglis, second Sean Harrison and lead Lauren Harrison, stole a go-ahead point in the seventh end and three more in the eighth and final end for a 7-3 win over previously undefeated Robert Desjardins of Quebec.
Desjardins, a former Canadian Mixed Doubles champion, was left only with a nearly impossible triple takeout with his final shot, but was unsuccessful, leaving three Ontario counters for the victory.
“Awesome would be the first word. Proud would be the second, probably.,” said Anderson when asked to describe the feeling of winning a Canadian title. “It’s starting to set in; when we were reading the names of the people who’ve won the trophy in the past, and now to be considered in that class, and nobody can ever take that away from us; it’s pretty special.”
Quebec, which had won 11 consecutive games, couldn’t have asked for a better start, opening the gold-medal game with two points, and took a 3-1 lead after four ends.
But Ontario was able to keep Quebec from its defensive strategy in the final four ends of the game. Ontario blanked the fifth end, and tied the game with a sixth-end deuce. And when Desjardins tried to generate offence in the seventh end instead of going for a blank to take the last-rock advantage into the final end, Ontario made him pay with a series of wonderful shots that left a rock in the four-foot behind protection. Desjardins attempted draw-shot for a single was heavy, and Ontario had its first lead with the stolen point.
And in the eighth, Ontario took advantage of a series of Quebec missed shots to leave Desjardins (his Chicoutimi team was rounded out by vice-skip Amélie Blais, second Thierry Fournier and lead Véronique Bouchard) with the difficult shot at the end.

“When we got to vice-skip rocks in the eighth end, we said, ‘We’ve played three perfect ends. Let’s not outsmart ourselves. Just keep doing what we’re doing,’ ” said Anderson, a 32-year-old management consultant. “They (Quebec) kept it so open all week, but we knew we would get a couple opportunities and it was just going to be a matter of taking them when we got them. I was really proud of the team for sticking with it and staying positive.”
Both Anderson and Inglis have worn the Maple Leaf internationally; both were playing for Team Canada at the 2009 Winter Universiade in Harbin, China, where Anderson skipped Canada to a fifth-place finish, while Inglis won silver throwing third rocks for Hollie Nicol’s team. A year earlier, both had won Canadian university championships representing Wilfrid Laurier University.
And while the husband-and-wife front end of Sean and Lauren Harrison haven’t played internationally, Sean has some family history in that department. His dad, the late Neil Harrison, won two Brier and two world men’s championships playing lead for Ed Werenich’s renowned Ontario team.
The Anderson team will get its chance on the world stage at the 2018 World Mixed Championship next fall (location, dates TBA by the World Curling Federation).
“It’s unbelievable. I can’t wait to get (the Team Canada uniform) back,” said Anderson. “I was in awe the first time, and I feel like Danielle and I will be better prepared this time. You know you’re going to be the No. 1 target when you go anywhere and you’re wearing the Maple Leaf. We accept that and can’t wait to get started with it.”
In the bronze-medal game, Newfoundland/Labrador’s Chris Ford and his St. John’s team — third Brooke Godsland, second Zach Young and lead Kate Murphy — stole a crucial deuce in the fifth end, which made the difference in a 6-3 win over New Brunswick’s Charlie Sullivan.
It was Ontario’s fourth Canadian Mixed gold medal; previously, Cory Heggestad won in 2013 at Mount Royal, Que.; John Epping won in 2006 at Whitehorse; and in 1986 at Kamloops, B.C., it was Dave Van Dine coming out on top.


In the SJHL,

The Melville Millionaires made a late comeback but the fell short in Grenfell, 4-2 to the Notre Dame Hounds at the Grenfell Regional Park Arena.

Colby Brandt and Chance Longjohn led the way offensively for the Hounds with a goal and 3 assists

Cory Schillo and Ryan Warner replied for the Millionaires.

Jack Ryan turned aside 30 of 32 shots in the win while Mils net minder Colby Entz made 27 saves in the loss.

The Mils next game will be on GX94 on Wednesday night when they visit the Humboldt Broncos. Pregame show at 7:20, pxp at 7:30 with Yorkton Dodge Junior Hockey.
