TERRIERS 3, NORTH STARS (OT)
The Yorkton Terriers snapped their 3 game losing streak on Tuesday with a 3-2 overtime win over the Battlefords North Stars.
The Terriers struck first early in the 1st period as Carson Henry had a good chance stopped and then Erik Boers got the rebound & flipped it over goalie Michael Harroch for his 11th of the season to give the visitors a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes.
In the 2nd, the North Stars tied it up 10:30 in as Steven Kesslering was able to sneak it though Tresor Wotton for his 18th of the year to make it 1-1.
But just 3:33 later and off a great individual effort from Steven Norum going top-shelf on the North Stars goalie for his 10th to regain Yorkton's lead at 2-1 through 2 periods of play.
Battlefords evened it up but not til the final minute as Tynan Ewart slap-shot hit Emmet Wurst then a Terrier defender on its way into the back of the net to make it 2-2.
After a back and forth start to overtime, Kishaun Gervais (pictured above) ended it just 2:40 in on a nice individual effort for his 16th of the season.
