For the second time this season, the Yorkton Terriers were able to win the Saturday night game, after falling to Melville on Friday.
The Terriers picked up a 4-2 decision on home ice Saturday night.
And, while it looks like the season series is split on the surface, the Terriers do have at least a point in all four head-to-head matchups, going 2-0-0-2 (6/8 points) against Melville so far. The Mils are 2-2-0-0 (4/8 points) in the season series.
Zak Majkowski, Davis Vandane, Kyle McLeod, and Clarke Breitkreuz did the scoring for the Terriers, while Lucas Froese notched both for Melville.
Shots on goal were 36-26 Terriers. The goalies were Rakochy and Peters for a second straight night.
The only other Sherwood Conference team in action on Saturday was Weyburn, and Battleford did the other Sherwood teams a favour, scoring 3 third period goals in a 5-2 win over the Wings.
So, Melville's still tied for 4th with the Wings, while Yorkton improves to 16-8-1-3, now with a 5 point lead over second place Estevan, but have also played 4 more games.
Yorkton's in Estevan on Tuesday... we'll have the action on GX94. Can't wait for that one!
Wayway 7 @ Wpg Blues 8
- Despite scoring 3 goals 33 seconds apart late in the third, Wayway dropped another close one, this time to the Blues. Paul Vandevelde scored three times for Wayway, and added a pair of assists. Ryan Duhaime scored a pair. That makes it four losses in a row for the Wolverines, and they now have one win in their last 9. Dauphin also won in OCN on Saturday, so Wayway's now 6 points back of the fifth place Kings.
Swan Valley 1 @ Winkler 3
- Dylan Reimer made sure the Swan Valley Stampeders wouldn't be shutout in back to back games, but their recent goal scoring woes continued, as the Stamps dropped their second straight in Winkler. Reimer's goal came 6:08 into the third period. Swan's been held to 3 goals or less in their last 5 games, and are 2-and-3 during that stretch. They'll finish off their tough road trip Sunday in Portage. A loss would see the Stamps slip to 2nd spot.
