Sunday the loss came at the hands of the visiting Notre Dame Hounds.

After a scoreless first period at Farrell Agencies Arena the Hounds hit early in the second frame with Jared Hamm scoring 2:35 in, and Jakob Breault and Nolan Renwick making it 3-0 before the nine-minute mark.

Aiden Bulych put Yorkton on the board with a powerplay marker to make it 3-1.

An unassisted goal by Marshall Wilton gave the Hounds a 4-1 lead before Chantz Petruic cut into the lead with another Terrier powerplay marker to send the teams to the dressing room with Notre Dame up 4-2.

A third powerplay marker for Yorkton, this one by Branden Klatt 5:29 into the third period drew Yorkton to within one goal, but the home team would get no closer.

Charles Martin and Breault with his second would pad the Hound lead in a game which ended 6-3 for the visitors.

Ben Laidlaw took the loss allowing four goals on 18-shots before being lifted for Ryan Ouelette, while Andrew Henderson faced 39 in the win for the Hounds.

Saturday the defences were much tighter and regulation time would not determine a winner.

The visiting Weyburn Red Wings scored the one goal of the first period, as Ben Hiltz struck at 4:39.

The Terriers tied it with the only goal of the second period, Aiden Bulych striking at 18:32.

The third would be a scoreless affair, sending the teams to an extra five-minutes, where Cade Kowalski notched the winner for the Wings at 2:54.

Riley Lamb earned the win in the Weyburn net facing 57-shots, while Laidlaw took the loss facing 25.

Win over Bombers
The Terriers squared off against Flin Flon last week in Warman.

Yorkton hit the scoresheet early as Cole Keenleyside scored his first of the season 1:37 into the contest on the powerplay. His goal was followed by markers from Jared Legien and Chantz Petruic by the midway point of the frame.

The 3-0 lead would not hold though as Daylan Marchi potted a pair to make it a 3-2 game through 20-minutes of play.

It took only 1:19 into the middle stanza for the Bombers to draw even on a powerplay goal by Caleb Moretz.

Cody Bruchkowski scored at 3:12 to reassert a Yorkton lead, a lead extended to 5-3 as Legien hit for a second time in the contest, this one at 6:49.

The Bombers again responded as Brandson Hein and Morestz with his second scored in the last six-minutes of the period to send the teams to the dressing room after 40-minutes tied 5-5.

After 10 goals in the opening two periods the game became a defensive one in the third with the Terriers’ Petruic scoring the game-winner at 14:53.

Ben Laidlaw was in the Terrier net for the win facing 46-shots, while Jacob Delorme started for Flin Flon but was lifted after allowing his third goal on eight shots in favor of Hunter Young who was tagged with the loss.
