Keenleyside's Hat-Trick helps Terriers earn road split after Game 2 victory in Nipawin on Saturday

The Yorkton Terriers captured a wild Game 2 on Saturday defeating the Nipawin Hawks 5-4 to even up their Best of 7 Quarter-Final at 1-1. 

The Terriers would get the only goal of the opening frame as Cole Keenleyside (pictured above) would get his 1st of playoffs with 1:36 left in the 1st period to give the visitors the early 1-0 lead. 

In the 2nd, the Hawks would explode with 3 goals in first 4:28 off the sticks of Austen Flaman, Jordan Simoneau and Michael Makarenko to give Nipawin a 3-1 lead. But the Terriers would respond with two more quick ones just a short time later both off the stick of Cole Keenleyside who completed his Hat-Trick to make it 3-3 after 40 minutes. 

Mason Mullaney would pull the Terriers back in front just 3:17 into the 3rd as his long shot would beat Declan Hobbs to make it 4-3. Then just over 5 minutes Mullaney would add his 2nd of the period as he would take a nice feed in front from Chantz Petruic and make no mistake to make it a two goal lead. The Hawks would try and battle back but they would only be able to get one by Ryan Ouellette from Jake Tremblay as the Terriers hung on for the road win.

Terriers G Ryan Ouellette turned aside 40 of 44 shots to earn his 3rd SJHL playoff win while Declan Hobbs made 30 saves in the loss. 

The series will now shift back to the Farrell Agencies Arena for Games 3 & 4 on Tuesday and Wednesday. GX94 will broadcast both games with Yorkton Dodge Junior Hockey with the "Sask Milk" pregame kicking off at 7:20 and PXP beginning at 7:30.
