The Yorkton Terriers were able to win for the third time in a row on Friday night after a 6-2 win over the Melfort Mustangs.

In the 2nd, the Terriers special teams came up big with three powerplay goals from Norum (pictured above), JD Hall and Tanner Sklaruk in a span of 13:13 to increase their lead to 5-1.
The Mustangs added their own powerplay goal with 3:50 left from Curtis Hammond to make it 5-2 through 40 minutes.
