Terriers drop shootout decision at home to Kindersley on Tuesday


For the first time in 24 days, the Yorkton Terriers returned to home ice, but they began their home-stand with a 3-2 shootout loss to the Kindersley Klippers on Tuesday night.

The Klippers after a dominate first period were rewarded for their efforts as just 8:29 in, Jaxon Georget re-directed one past Terrier G Kael DePape for his 6th of the season to give them a 1-0 lead after 1 period. 

In the 2nd, the Terriers' got on the board just under 9 minutes in as Carson Henry deflected a Parker Jasper point-shot by Brett Sweet to make it 1-1.

Kindersley thought quickly responded just 1:12 later, when after a nice individual effort, Georget finished off going top-shelf with the back-hand for his 2nd of the night to regain the Klippers one goal lead.

But before the 2nd period buzzer went off, Clay Sleeva on another deflection helped the Terriers tie it up through 40 minutes. 

After a scoreless third and overtime period, Aidan Bangs and Noah Lindsay scored the only goals in the shootout to help the road team get the extra point.

Klippers' G Brett Sweet turned aside 23 shots to earn his 5th win of the season, while Kael DePape made 29 saves in the Terriers' goal.

The Terriers and Klippers will meet once again on Friday, while Kindersley continues their road-trip in Melville on Wednesday night at 7PM from the Horizon Credit Union Center.
