Mils' complete Highway 10 New Year's Sweep with victory over Yorkton to kick off 2019



The Melville Millionaires completed the New Year's Sweep of their Highway 10 rivals to kick off 2019.

After their 4-2 win on Sunday, they followed that up with a 4-2 victory over the Yorkton Terriers on New Year's Day at the Horizon Credit Union Center in Melville.

After the Terriers' opened the scoring on Sunday, the Mils would score first on New Year's Day. Daniel Liberty would grab a loose puck in the high-slot and snap home his 9th goal of the season past Ben Laidlaw on the power play to give the home-side an early 1-0 lead just 4:15 into the 1st. The Terriers would even it up at 1-1 with just 3:18 remaining in the period as Colby Brandt was waiting back-door and would grab a loose puck & slide it through Colby Entz to give him a dozen goals on the season. But the Mils would regain their one goal lead just 22 seconds later as Ben Laidlaw's couldn't handle a rebound and Damian Bentz would capitalize on the mistake for his 5th goal of the year to give Melville a 2-1 lead after 1 period. Shots were 10-7 Terriers after the first.

In the 2nd period, the Terriers' would get the equalizer short-handed as Cole Keenleyside would make a nice move around the Mils defence and feed captain Brendan Mark back-door to make it 2-2. But once again, the tie game wouldn't last long as just 49 seconds later, a nice passing play set up by Mils' captain Cory Schillo would be finished up by John Elliot for his 4th of the year to make it a 3-2 game after 2 periods.

The Mils would get the only goal of the 3rd period to add some insurance and once again it would be a power play goal, their 3rd of the night as James Philpot's long point shot would squeak behind Ben Laidlaw and would be sitting in the crease before Josh Borynec would poke it home for his 11th and 4th goal in as many games to help give the Mils the two points.

Mils starter Colby Entz (pictured above) was once again solid in net making 39 saves for his 9th victory of the season while Ben Laidlaw turned aside 17 of 21 shots to get tagged with the loss.

The Mils' return to action on Friday night when they visit the Weyburn Red Wings for a Viterra division showdown. GX94 will broadcast the game with Yorkton Dodge Junior Hockey, pregame begins at 7:20, pxp starts at 7:30.
