Terriers though regained their lead just over four minutes later as Dalton Mayes' long pass found a sprinting Dylan Ruptash & he went forehand-backhand five-hole on Cam Hrdlicka to give his team a 2-1 lead after 1 period.

In the 2nd period the two exchanged goals off the sticks of Tyson Perkins (YKT) & a PP goal from Ilia Chmelevski to put Yorkton up by 1 through 40 minutes.

After a back & forth start to the final frame, the Terriers got the much needed insurance they needed as with 3:11, Domina added his 2nd of the night before Cooper Algajer finished it off with an empty-netter just over a minute later to wrap up the win.

Just 3:42 later, Flynn Maxcy would let the Teddy Bears fly for the Moneymen as he deflected a Boston Harkness point-shot  through the five-hole of James Venne for his 9th to tie things up 1-1.

But just 40 seconds later, the Mustangs regained their one goal lead as Chase Friedt-Mohr's one-timer on a feed across from Leith Olafson squeaked through Will Dyke for his 11th.

Euan Morrison brought the Millionaires back even though before the 1st frame ended as he tapped home a loose puck in the crease for his 6th to make it even through 20. 

After a scoreless 2nd period, the Mustangs got the eventual game winner 4:09 into the 3rd as a pair AP's would connect as Jaxon Kehrig used a good fore-check and then found his Tisdale Trojan teammate Tristan Ziola in front and he made no mistake for his 1st SJHL goal to give the Mustangs lead, before Zac Somers added insurance in the final seconds to wrap up the scoring. 

Mustangs' netminder James Venne made 25 saves on 27 shots to earn his 17th victory of the campaign, while William Dyke turned aside 23 shots in the loss.
