Don’t look now but the Yorkton Terriers, leaders of the Viterra Division, defeated each of the other two division leaders on the road over the weekend. The Terriers followed up Friday’s 5-2 win in Melfort (the Mustangs led the Sherwood Division going into action Friday), with a 6-3 win in Humboldt, over the Global Ag Risk Solutions leading Broncos on Sunday afternoon.
The win has the Terriers (16-10-1-0) now alone in first, two points up on Estevan and still with six games in hand.
Jared Legien and Chantz Petruic each had a goal and two assists to lead the way offensively. Colby Brandt (1g-1a), Cody Bruchkowski (1g-1a), Mason Mullaney and Quinten Hobbs also scored and Ryan Ouelette made 28/31 saves. Ouelette was in goal for both victories on the weekend.
Zach McIntyre and Michael Clarke each had a goal and an assist for the Broncos (19-9-2-1). Bryson Cecconi rounded out the scoring.
Both teams are back in action Tuesday as part of a four game schedule. Humboldt’s in Battlefords while Yorkton welcomes Estevan in a pair of divisional games. Elswhere Kinderlsey will head to La Ronge, with Flin Flon visiting Nipawin.
