ESTEVAN - It was a game that might have been considered something of a measuring stick for the Yorkton Terriers.

The Terriers, sitting second in the Viterra Division of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League were in Estevan against the top-spot Estevan Bruins Tuesday.

The Terriers got off to the sort of start you want on the road as Karsten Kruska scored 35 seconds into the game.

But, Caelan Fitzpatrick would find the equalizer for the home team at 18:26.

In the second period it was the Bruins turn to strike early Nolan Jones at 1:45 and Mark Rumsey at 2:30.

Fitzpatrick was back for his second of the contest at 10:43 to make it 4-1 for Estevan.

It was more of the same in the third period as Brandon Ambrozik and Kade Runke added goals for the home side as the Bruins skated away with a 6-1 win.

Kael DePape faced 36 shots in the Terrier net while being tagged with the loss, while Boston Bilous earned the win for Estevan facing 30.

Next action for the Terriers see them on home ice at the Westland Insurance Arena to face LaRonge Friday and Nipawin Saturday.
