The Swan Valley Stampeders earned their 9th victory of the season on Wednesday night defeating the visiting Dauphin Kings 3-2 in overtime at the Centennial Arena.

The Stamps got the only goal in the 1st period as Leyson Coleman would get the loose puck in the high slot and swipe it five-hole on Kings net minder Zach Grouette for his 4th of the season to give Swan Valley at 1-0 lead after 20 minutes.

Shots after 1 were 14-6 Stampeders.

It wouldn't take long for the Stamps to add to their lead in the 2nd as just 62 seconds in, Trevor Schroder banged  home a rebound five-hole for his 5th of the season to make it 2-0.

But the Kings would respond just over 5 minutes later as Baron Thompson would get a nice bounce off a Stamps leg in front and it would go right to him back-door for his team-leading 11th of the season to make it a one goal game after 40 minutes.

After the 2nd the shots were 32-15 Swan Valley.

In the 3rd, the Stamps held a 2-1 lead until 3:57 left in regulation when Nakodan walked out from below the goal-line and slipped it through Michael Davis for his 8th to pull the Kings even to force overtime.

Frazer Dodd would end it for the Stamps just 1:19 into the extra period to give the Stamps the extra point.

20 year old Michael Davis turned aside 25 of 27 shots in the Stamps net to earn the win while Kings G Zach Grouette was solid in the loss making 41 saves.

Mils still winless on road after loss in Wilcox on Tuesday

The Melville Millionaires are still winless on the road after a 6-3 loss in Wilcox against the Notre Dame Hounds on Tuesday night.

It would only take the Mils 55 seconds to get on the board as James Philpott would finish off a nice feed in front going top-shelf on Logan Dyck for his 1st of the season to make it 1-0 Melville.

The Hounds would respond with 4:48 left in the opening period when Sho Takai took a back-door feed from Jake Dale and made no mistake past Mils G Scott Bird to even it up at 1-1 after 20 minutes of play.  Shots were 21-6 in favour of the Hounds.

The Moneymen would grab their one goal lead back as Blake Campbell would get the puck in the high-slot and snap home his 2nd of the season to make it 2-1.

It would stay like that into 19:59 mark of the middle frame as while short-handed Ben Hamilton's long shot would produce a rebound out front and once again it would be Sho Takai banging in his 2nd of the night with 1.6 seconds left to even the game up after 2 periods.

In the 3rd the Hounds would grab their first lead as Sho Takai would sneak it five-hole on Bird to complete his Hat-Trick that was before Jared Hamm scores a powerplay goal to make it 4-2

The Mils would get one back on a PP goal of their own as Booker Chacalias walked out from below the goal-line and beat a sprawled out Logan Dyck to make it 4-3.

But that’s as close as the Moneymen would get as Jaret Penner and Jared Hamm would add an empty netter each for the Hounds

Logan Dyck made 18 saves on 21 shots to earn his 1st win for Notre Dame while Scott Bird turned aside 44 shots in the loss.

The Mils will return to action on Friday when they visit the La Ronge Ice Wolves.

Yorkton Cardinals taking one year leave-of-absence from WCBL in 2020

The Yorkton Cardinals are announcing they are taking a one year leave of absence from the WCBL in an effort to further solidify their financial situation and baseball operations.

The Cards, despite a 6-and-50 season, are pleased to announce they broke even financially on the 2019 year.

However, there remains a sizable debt that has been wittled down from close to $100,000 by about 40%. Both the league and team feel having a year to continue to raise money without accruing expenses will allow the team a good chance at long term success

Finances are only part of the long term stability of the franchise. A strong Board of Directors is required in order for the team to not only survive, but thrive.

In fact, it's been shown through tremendous corporate support already that this team can be very viable. It's believed Yorkton ranks at, or near, the top of the WCBL in sponsorship dollars raised. We need fans at the park and recognize a more competitive team is needed in order to win your support in this area.

If you are interested in being a dedicated member of restoring the Cards back to being a successful franchise and contributing to collegiate baseball in our city, please contact Mike at 306 621 5999. Even without a debt, this level of baseball doesn't work in our city if we don't have an enthusiastic volunteer base.

We look forward to returning with a strong plan and vision for the 2021 season.

Melville Millionaires take one year leave-of-absence from Western Canadian Baseball League

The status of the Western Canadian Baseball League's Melville Millionaires is in jeopardy but for now the franchise will not be revoked.

Due to their financial struggles, stagnant ticket sales and lack of performance & sponsorship the WCBL was concerned that the team in the Rail City wouldn't be viable anymore.

But Mils President Darren Wandy along with League President Kevin Kwame drafted up a letter to send to league's board of directors to consider letting the ball club take a one year leave of absence instead of getting revoked and in the end the league accepted that request.

Now in the year away the Mils will need to try to raise interest of the team within the community, fund-raise money to pay back current & old creditors and need to try to return the team to a viable franchise.

The progressive 50/50 is one of the team's major focus points right now with the draw date set for Oct. 30th and the club is hoping that the community and also expanded area purchasers will step up to support.

Tickets are 1 for $20, 5 for $50 and 20 for $100. If sold-out the total jackpot to the winner would be $100,000.

To get your tickets contact 1-888-946-6457 or contact Darren Wandy at 306-521-0429.

The Mils would also like to add some more board members and volunteers to the organization to help out in any capacity and you can contact Darren if you're interested.

It would stay like that until the Bruins would get a nice re-direction of their own as Troy Hamilton's would show some nice hand-eye to tip one past Terrier G Phillipe Bond for his 2nd to even the game at 1-1 after 20 minutes.

Shots after 1 were 16-8 in favour of the Bruins.

The visiting Bruins wouldn't take long to grab their first lead of the night just 39 seconds into the 2nd as Brady Nicholas would grab his 2nd of the year to make it 2-1. Then just 4:14 later, Nicholas would add his second of the period on the PP to give Estevan a two goal lead after 40 minutes.

After 2 periods, the Terriers would also lead the shot column 33-17.

The Terriers would make things interesting late as Jordan Guiney would add his 2nd of the night tipping home a power play on a Chantz Petruic point shot to make it a one goal game but that's as close as they would get.

Bruins goaltender Keenan Rancier turned aside 32 of 34 shots to earn his 4th win of the season while Phillippe Bond in the Terriers' goal made 39 saves in the loss.

The Terriers will return to action this weekend for a pair of games against the La Ronge Ice Wolves.

Yorkton Hyundai & Yorkton Terriers (SJHL) partner up to become "Yorkton Hyundai Terriers"

Yorkton Hyundai is teaming up with the Yorkton Terriers Junior A Hockey Club.
The dealership will be the title sponsor of the club, meaning the Terriers will be called the Yorkton Hyundai Terriers.
Dealer Principal Ron Kaban says it's all part of a bigger, long term picture.

"We just felt it was a good fit for us with Hyundai Canada taking a prominent role supporting across the country and also we always like to give back to the community in whatever way we can."
 Terriers Director of Marketing for the Terriers Ryan Kormos says this is something the team has wanted to do for a little while.

"We've discussing something like this as a board for a few years now and it's just something that other teams across the league and Canada have been doing and we felt this was a good fit for us now."
The commitment is for just this season, something both Kaban and Kormos hope works out well so a long-term deal could be made.

An area below the mezzanine at the Farrell Agencies Arena will also be designated for Yorkton Hyundai, where promotions and activities will be happening.

The deal with Yorkton Hyundai includes the use of a car by the Terriers, for staff and the use of team governors attending league matters.
