YORKTON - The new year has not started the way the Yorkton Terriers would have hoped.
Saturday evening the Terriers dropped their second straight to the rival Millionaires, the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League game in Melville.
While the first period was scoreless the Millionaires scored three unanswered goals in the middle frame.
Alden Robson started things with a powerplay goal at 8:28.
Louis-Frederic Theberge then scored at 16:19, again with Melville having a man advantage.
It was then Isaac Suppin scoring at 19:40, again on the powerplay.
The Terriers made a push to get back into the game in the third period as Pavel Mckenzie scored at 3:28, and Dylan Ruptash at 7:24 to make it 3-2.
But, a marker by Nathan Fox at 10:22 and a Zach Bansley goal at 17:19 finalized a Mills’ win, their second 5-2 win in two days over the Terriers.
Tysen Smith took the loss in the Terrier net facing 33 shots, while Clement Labillois earned the win for Melville facing 25 shots.
The Terriers next head to Estevan Wednesday to face the Bruins, then host Weyburn Saturday.
