Coming off a 3-1 win Monday, the Yorkton Hyundai Terriers were back in action tonight (Tuesday).
The Terriers were taking on the Nipawin Hawks in Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League action at the Farrell Agencies Arena, where the visitors hit the scoresheet first. Jordan Simoneau gave the Hawks a 1-0 lead at 5:26.
Brett LeGrandeur would knot the score for the Terriers at 8:26 of the opening period.
The Hawks went ahead with a quick goal from Burke Simpson only 25-seconds into the middle frame.
But the Terriers responded with Alec Zawatsky getting the equalizer at 4:59.
A powerplay goal by Keenan Taphorn at 17:43 gave the home side its first lead of the night at 3-2.
It took 2:03 into the third for Brodie Girod to tie things up with Nipawin’s third goal of the contest.
The powerplay came to the forefront for the Terriers again as Carson Henry used the man-advantage to reassert a Terrier lead at 11:47. The goal made it a 4-3 game.
The Hawks were not finished however, as Girod was back to score his second of the nights at 19:47 of the third period to again tie the game, this time at 4-4.
The tie would hold through the final seconds of regulation time, forcing the teams to a five-minute, sudden-death overtime period, but again nothing was solved as neither team could find the winner.
The game headed to a shoot-out, where the Terriers finally put away a 5-4 victory.
Philippe Bond was in net for the Terriers facing 30-shots.
Ross Hawryluk was in the Hawks net facing 31-shots.
The Terriers head to Humboldt for road action Friday and are scheduled to play in Kindersley Saturday.
