ESTEVAN - The Estevan Bruins last home game before the Christmas break was a disappointing one.

The Bruins fell 5-2 to the Yorkton Terriers on Wednesday night. Yorkton ended an eight-game losing skid with the win.

The Terriers set the tone early when Anthony Domina scored 36 seconds into the game. Estevan tied the game less than seven minutes later when Cade Kennedy notched his first as a Bruin. The Black and Gold acquired Kennedy Sunday in a trade with Yorkton.

The Terriers regained the lead midway through the frame on a goal by Dylan Ruptash, and they extended the advantage in the second when Tyson Perkins scored. Ilia Chmelevski pulled the Bruins to within one on a power play before the halfway point in the frame.

It was as close as the Bruins would get. They had few quality chances to tie the game in the second and third periods. Domina scored his second of the game with 3:11 to play to put the game away, and Cooper Algejar notched the final goal into an empty net 53 seconds later.

Jeff Hammond assisted on three of Yorkton's goals.

Cam Hrdlicka stopped 35 shots for the Bruins, including a few big stops when it was still a 3-2 game, while Ethan Farrow made 29 saves for Yorkton.  

The Bruins (13-13-0-2) will close out the pre-Christmas portion of their schedule on Friday night when they play the Notre Dame Hounds at 7:30 p.m. at the Harry O Memorial Arena in Midale.
