Terriers' win streak snapped at five after OT loss in Wilcox

The Yorkton Hyundai Terriers had their 5 game win streak come to an end on Tueaday night in Wilcox after a 4-3 overtime loss to the Notre Dame Hounds.

The Hounds scored first 13:55 into the 1st period as Kenzie MacKinnon stripped a Terrier defenceman behind their net and he walked out and slid it past Matthew Pesenti for his 5th of the season to give the home team the 1-0 lead.

They would add to their lead just under 5 minutes later as Curtis Wiebe was left open in the slot and he received a nifty feed from Captain Jared Hamm and he chipped it past the Terrier net minder for his 6th of the campaign to put the Hounds in front of the Terriers 2-0 after 20 minutes.

The Terriers' cut their deficit in half just 7:12 into the 2nd period when Jordan Guiney took a feed in the slot from Kaeden Taphorn and beat Riley Kohonick for his 17th of the season to make it 2-1.

But the Hounds before the end of the 2nd period grabbed a PP goal of their own as Sho Takai made 3-1 Hounds through 2 periods.

In the 3rd, the Terriers' made it a one goal game and against with 12:48 left in regulation it would be Guiney adding his 2nd of the night going off the far-post and in for his 18th of the year to cut the Terriers' within one.

Then with just 24 seconds left while short-handed and with the goalie pulled, the Terriers got the equalizer as Alec Zawatsky fed it over to a wide-open Keenan Taphorn who put it into the open night to make it a 3-3 game.

The Hounds carried a power play into overtime but it wasn't until the penalty expired that they capitalized as after some nice passing it was Cole Stevenson finding Guillaume St. Onge back-door who flipped it over a sprawled out Matt Pesent to give the home-side the extra point.

Hounds' G Riley Kohonick made 36 saves on 39 shots to earn the win while Matt Pesenit of Yorkton turned aside 27 shots in the loss.

The Terriers' will return to action on Friday night when they host the Kindersley Klippers at the Farrell Agencies Arena with puck-drop at 7:30.
