The Yorkton Terriers suffered their first defeat on home ice against Estevan in almost 2 years after dropping a 3-2 decision to the Bruins on Tuesday.
The hometown Terriers would get on the board first as after nearly missing just moments earlier, Jordan Guiney would get deflect home a Keanan Sperling point shot over the right shoulder of Keenan Rancier for his 1st as a Terriers to give them an early 1-0 lead.
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 will host the Ice Wolves on Friday night from the Farrell Agencies Arena before taking on the Ice Wolves in a neutral-site game on Saturday in Churchbridge at 7PM.
