The Story Coming In
The Terriers dropped their home opener last night 7-4 to the Humboldt Broncos. The Broncos scored early and often, thanks to a four point night from Tristan Shewchuk and a three point evening from Stephane Huard Jr. Now the Terriers look to return the favour. Scoring two goals late, Yorkton hopes that late momentum turns into early success at the Elgar Petersen Arena. Carson Miller leads the way for Yorkton, scoring two goals last night, while Brett Kemp added a goal and an assist. No matter who’s in net for Yorkton, the Terriers will expect a strong showing by 20-year-old Philippe Bond or 17-year-old Jacob Herman, both of whom played in last night’s contest.
Striking not once but twice, Carson Miller will look to continue providing offence for the Terriers tonight in Humboldt. The 20-year-old forward on loan from the Victoria Royals was one of the few bright spots for the Terriers last night, and he will be asked to be a key element to Yorkton’s success moving forward. Miller has already doubled his production from the preseason, and he appears to be getting more and more comfortable each game with Yorkton.
