In SJHL Playoffs, 

The Yorkton Terriers had chance to sweep their Best of 3 SJHL Wild-Card series, but on Sunday in Wilcox they came up a little bit short as they fell 5-1 to the Notre Dame Hounds.

Jakob Breault got things started just 6:06 into the 1st with his 1st of the playoffs to make it 1-0 before Branden Klatt would respond for the Terriers just 2:11 into the middle frame with his 2nd of the series to make it 1-1 early in the 2nd. The Hounds would respond though with a couple goals just 1:13 apart from Marshall Wilton and Zach Kosteniuk later in that period to help the Hounda take a two goal lead at 3-1 into the 2nd intermission.

After a scoreless first two-thirds of the 3rd, the Hounds would respond with 2 quick goals late in the final few minutes off the sticks of Kosteniuk and Jarett Penner to help the home-side stave off elinination.

Riley Kohonick in the Hounds net made 24 saves on 25 shots to earn his 1st SJHL playoff victory while Ryan Ouellette was once again solid despite giving up 5 goals, making 35 saves in the loss.

The two teams will now battle it out for the final position in the SJHL Quarter-Finals on Tuesday night for Game number 3 from the Farrell Agencies Arena. GX94 will broadcast the game with Yorkton Dodge Junior Hockey, pregame show will go at 7:20 while the PXP kicks off at 7:30.
