The Yorkton Terriers earned their 2nd win in a row on Saturday in Canora, a 3-2 win in overtime over the Kindersley Klippers.

The win improves the Terriers record to 18-12-1-0 on the season.


The Klippers would strike only 12 second into the first period, as a bouncing puck made its way past Ryan Ouelette to make it 1-0.


Less than 13 minutes later, Noah Lindsay would add another for the Klippers to make it 2-0.


After one period of play the Klippers lead 2-0 and found themselves ahead in the shot department 15-10 as well.


Chantz Petruic would get the Terriers on the board with his 31st goal of the season, the lone assist coming from Alec Zawatsky.


Nearly 10 minutes later, Alec Zawatsky would score a goal of his own to tie it at 2, with assists going to Keenan Taphorn and Chantz Petruic.


Things would get heated in the third, as the teams combined for 38 3rd period penalty minutes.


The Terriers would end out the third period on a 4-minute high sticking penalty to the Klippers, and a 4-on-3 advantage heading into overtime.


Captain Chantz Petruic would strike once again for his 32nd goal of the season and 2nd of the evening to secure the victory for the Terriers.


Ryan Ouellette would take the win in goal for the Terriers, stopping 34 of 36 Kindersley shots.


The Terriers will take some time off before heading out on the road on Thursday night for another neutral site game in Pinehouse versus the La Ronge Ice Wolves.


They then head to Nipawin and Melfort before returning home.
