Brody Hoffman stopped all 34 shots he faced as the Nipawin Hawks, the SJHL's lowest ranked team, ended the first place Yorkton Terriers' 4 game winning streak, with a 3-0 decision at Farrell Agencies Arena.
Tanner Dusyk scored twice, while Matt Spafford added the other. Warren Shymko stopped 18/21 shots in the Terrier cage.
Yorkton's in Melville to start off a home and home against the Millionaires on Friday.
We'll preview the weekend with Episode Two of the Robin's Roundtable Thursday night, from 7:00 - 7:30, live from Robin's Donuts in Melville.
The Millionaires had just 13 players (including AP's) who could have gone to Weyburn on Tuesday. The game was postponed. We'll hear from Jamie Fiesel on the Mil's Coach's Show Wednesday morning at 10:40 on GX94. I'm a little behind posting Coach's Shows again I see... the main reason has been computer issues, but I'll try to get them caught up Wednesday.
Also got interviews with Yorkton's Clarke Breitkreuz (WJAC) and Swan Valley's Landon Peel (Under-17's) yesterday... I'll do my best to post them as well. I'll be tracking down Melville product Damon Severson in Kelowna early Wednesday morning, also about being named to the U17's.
The Wayway Wolverines were down 4-0, made it 4-2, but the Portage Terriers kept them at arm's length, adding 2 more third period goals, for a 6-2 win over the Wolverines.
For the Wolverines, Paul Vandevelde and Jordan Hirano scored, while Riley Feser made 25/31 saves.
Wayway now has one win in their last 7 games, and still sit 4 points back of the 5th place Dauphin Kings, and are now even in games played.
Portage got themselves to within one point of first place Swan Valley, and have played two fewer games. The Stamps host OCN Wednesday at 7:30. Wayway's on the road this weekend, to Steinbach Friday, and Winnipeg (Blues) Saturday.
The Blues did the rest of the Sherwood Division a favour Tuesday, beating Neepawa 7-2. The Blues have won their last 2 games, and have scored 14 goals in the process. It'll be up to either the Blues or Steinbach to make sure there won't be a Sherwood Division team crossing over into the Addison come playoff time. The top 3 Addison teams are well above .500.
Back to the Wolverines... they've clearly been streaky so far this season.
First 7 games: 0-5-2 (2/14 pts)
Next 12 games: 8-3-1 (17/24 pts)
Last 7 games: 1-5-1 (3/14 pts)
If the trend continues... Wayway should be due for another hot stretch!
