The Yorkton Terriers extended their home winning streak to four games after a 4-3 win over the Estevan Bruins. Logan Cyca had a goal and an assist, while nine Terriers registered a point.

Estevan opened the scoring with the lone goal of the first period. A shot from Kade Runke was partially blocked and Owen Barrow steered home the bouncing puck to make it 1-0 Bruins. The Terriers offence came alive in the second period. Clay Sleeva tied the game at 1-1, after gloving down a shot in front of Cam Hrdlicka, before shoveling home the bouncing puck for his 9th goal of the season. Shortly afterwards, Brett Butz jammed home a loose puck in the crease for his third goal of the year, to give Yorkton a 2-1 lead. Bruins responded less than two minutes later, when Gabriel Filion knocked home his 2nd goal of the campaign to make it 2-2. However, Cyca restored the Terriers lead. The captain blocked at shot at his own blue-line, springing himself on a break-away, where Cyca picked the top corner for his 4th goal of the year.

Yorkton found the crucial insurance marker in the third period. Maddux Nollski found a wide open JD Hall in front of goal, and the 20-year-old deked out Hrdlicka, making it 4-2 Terriers. The Bruins got a goal back late in the frame, when a loose puck squirted to the slot to a wide open Barrow, who wired it home for his second goal of the evening. Bruins pressed for a equalizer, but Caleb Allen and the Terriers held on to the 4-3 victory.

Yorkton returns to action on Thursday for a home showdown against the Battlefords North Stars. The game will be broadcast on the GX 94 alternate stream with the pre-game show starting at 6:50pm and play-by-play beginning at 7:00pm.
