Disappointment in Melville for the Terriers

The Highway #10 rivals met again New Year’s Day afternoon at the Horizon Credit Union Centre in Melville.

The Millionaires started quickly on home ice with Daniel Liberty scoring a powerplay marker only 4:15 into the frame.

Colby Brandt tied the game at 16:42, but it was a short-lived tie as 22-seconds later Damian Bentz restored a one-goal lead for the Millionaires.

Into the second period a short-handed effort by Terrier Brendan Mark tied the contest 2-2, but again the tie would not last long.  It was only 49-seconds later John Elliot again restored a one-goal lead for Melville, his goal coming with a man-advantage.

The third period would see only one goal added to the scoresheet, as Melville added their third powerplay marker of the day, this one by Josh Borynec at 7:44 to round out a 4-2 Mills victory.

Ben Laidlaw was in the Terrier net being tagged with the loss after facing 20-shots, while Colby Entz faced 37-shots in helping secure the Melville win.

The pair of losses to Melville leaves Yorkton with a record of 20-14-1 for 41 points to still sit atop the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Viterra Division.

Estevan sits second with 37-points, with Melville sitting third with 30, and Weyburn residing in the division basement with 25 points.

Up next

The Terriers will host Flin Flon Friday at the Farrell Agencies Arena, then Saturday Weyburn will be the visitors.

Next Tuesday, Jan. 8, Yorkton will head to Estevan to face the Bruins.
