ESTEVAN - The Yorkton Terriers were in Estevan to face the top team in the Viterra Division of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League Thursday night.

The host Bruins scored first on a goal by Cody Davis at 5:43 of the opening frame.

A pair of goals by Yorkton’s Maddux Nollski gave the Terriers the lead. The first was at 11:28, the second, an unassisted effort came 19 seconds later at 11:47. Nollski has five goals in his last two games against Estevan, and six against the Bruins this season. 

The 2-1 Terrier lead held until the second period, but was then short-lived as Caelan Fitzpatrick knotted proceedings with an unassisted marker of his own only 29 seconds into action.

Then 22 seconds later, at the 51-second mark, Mark Rumsey scored to give the Bruins a 3-2 lead. Both goals were scored at 4-on-4.

The Bruins' slim lead held until 19:19 of the third period when Steven Norum tied the game with a powerplay marker.

The two top teams in the division headed to the five-minute overtime, but it proved nothing.

The win finally went to the visitors in the shoot-out. Zach McIntyre had the lone goal. 

Kael DePape was in net for the Terriers facing 44 shots in the win.

Cam Hrdlicka guarded the Bruins net facing 41 shots in the loss.

The Terriers stay on the road heading to Humboldt Friday and Notre Dame Sunday. Estevan will visit the Melville Millionaires Saturday and host the Mills Sunday at 6 p.m.
