The Yorkton Terriers played all three of their road games against the Notre Dame Hounds in just 11 games this regular season, and if you ask the Terriers, I'm sure they'll say they're glad they're done going there.
The Terriers lost 4-1 in Notre Dame last night, and went 0-and-3 in Wilcox this season, scoring just 3 goals and giving up 11.
Brent Struble scored Yorkton's only goal for the second straight game (scored in Friday's 2-1 loss to HUM), giving him 3 on the season, while the Hounds' top players were just that; Kyle Ireland scored two goals and one assist, while Travis Janke scored once (team-leading 17th) and set up two others in the win. Rookie Trevor Cameron scored Notre Dame's other goal, their first of the game in the opening frame.
After Matthew Smidt stymied the Terriers in 3 straight meetings, including a shutout, the Hounds turned to Russell Abbott between the pipes, and he made 29/30 saves. Both goaltenders are just 18 years old. Devin Peters stopped 24/28 in the loss.
Both teams were 0/5 on the PP, and the Hounds are now 0/16 against the Terriers in 5 games this season.
Yorkton's Pre-Christmas schedule wraps up tomorrow (TUE) already when they host Weyburn at 7:30.
