The Terriers bested the 21-22 SJHL Champs with a 4-5 victory.

YORKTON – The Yorkton Terriers hosted the Estevan Bruins on the evening of Saturday, September 17, for their season home opener at Westland Arena.

It was a foggy evening on the ice and the Terriers were looking to build on the momentum of their win over the Bruins from the previous evening. 

Pavel Mckenzie put the Terriers on the board at 3:57 of the first during a powerplay effort by the team.  The Bruins responded with a powerplay goal of their own at 12:13 by way of Jagjeevan Phangura.  Karsten Kruska closed out the period with a shorthanded goal for the Terriers at 18:10.

Only two goals were scored in the second period, both coming by way of the Terriers. Maddux Nollski hit the target early at 00:20 and Greg Nelson put the puck past the goalie late in the period at 19:47.  1 – 4 Terriers headed into the third.

Early in the third, at 2:48, Kade Runke scored a shorthanded goal for the Bruins.  Later, at 14:08, the Bruins would put another past the netminder, with the puck coming off the stick of Alex Von Sprecken.  The Terriers responded a short time later with the puck entering the net off the stick of Aiden Knutson.  The Bruins' Alex Blanchard scored on the powerplay at 18:56 of the period, but it wasn't enough to turn things around for the team.

Final score 4 – 5 Terriers.  

Caleb Allen was in net for the Terriers stopping 27 of the 31 shots for the win.

Cam Hrdlicka was in net for the Bruins facing 26 shots.

The Terriers will host the Weyburn Red Wings at Westland Arena on the 21st of September for some more exciting SJHL action.
