The Yorkton Terriers erased a late 4-2 deficit and beat the Estevan Bruins 5-4 in a shootout on Wednesday night.
In his first game as a Terrier since being traded from Weyburn in exchange for Yorkton captain Dexter Robinson this week, Matthew Jones started the comeback in the third period and would later score the shootout winner.
Defenseman Karstin McDonald tied the game with his first SJHL goal with 3:06 left in regulation. Cody Dubas and Evan Nicholas scored the others for the Terriers (5-19-2-0). The Terriers were outshot 55-29, but Joe Marcouiller made 51 saves, and has won 2 of his 3 starts as a Terrier.
Kaelan Holt (2g-2a), Hayden Guilderson (2g-1a) and Jake Fletcher (3a) were responsible for most of the offensive stats for the Bruins (16-10-2-1).
The Weyburn Red Wings wasted no time bouncing back from Tuesday’s 10-1 loss in Nipawin, continuing onto Flin Flon where they picked up a 7-2 win over the Bombers Wednesday.
Erik Olson led the charge for the Wings (16-9-2-0), with a natural hat trick during the second period. Tyran Brown added a pair of goals, while Wyatt Arndt (1g-1a) and Jeremy Velazquez rounded out the scoring. Arik Weersink turned away 40 of the 42 shots he faced.
Nate Hooper and Rob Johnson each had a goal and an assist for the Bombers (8-12-1-3).
The Melville Millionaires jumped out to a 2-0 second period lead, but the Notre Dame Hounds came all the way back to win 3-2 in regulation, beating the Mils for a second straight night.
Tim Gould (1g-1a), Jared Hamm and Connor Mylymok scored and Jack Ryan made 18/20 saves for the Hounds (17-7-1-3).
Montana Streit and Isaac Embree got the Millionaires (10-17-0-2) on the board and Connor Dochuk turned away 28/31 shots.
Will Van der Sloot had a goal and two assists as the Kindersley Klippers picked up 3-2 win over the La Ronge Ice Wolves at a neutral site game in Macklin.
Kyle Bosch scored the other two goals for the Klippers (12-7-2-2), and Billy Girard made 36/38 saves.
Mitch Zambon scored twice for the Ice Wolves (5-19-0-2), his second two goal game in as many nights. He now has 5-goals and 6-points in five games with La Ronge. Merek Pipes stopped 30/33 shots in goal on Wednesday.
