For the second straight night, the Melville Millionaires defeated the Yorkton Terriers 5-1.

This time, it was their first win at Horizon Credit Union Centre, and it also got their record back to .500 (3-3-1-1).

Alex Wakaluk came even closer to getting his first SJHL shutout, before Yorkton's Austin Lewis beat him with just 3:46 remaining in the third.

Ian McNulty had 7 points in the weekend home and home, following Friday's 4 pointer with two goals and an assist at home. Jesse Mireau added two assists. The other three Mils' goals all came from defensemen- Brett Kipling, Bob Pond, and Tyson Newell.

The special teams numbers also looked very similar to Friday's game, with the Mils going 3/7 on the PP, while Yorkton was 0/5.

How tight is the Sherwood Conference in the early going? The Mils were tied for last coming into the weekend. Now they're tied for 2nd, with three other teams, including the Terriers.


Between Friday and Saturday, 10 cross-divisional games were held at the MJHL Showcase in Winnipeg. The Addison Division came away with 9 wins against Sherwood opponents, and went 5-for-5 on Saturday.

The Dauphin Kings were the only Sherwood club to pick up a win, doing so on Friday against the Saints. OCN was the only other northern team to pick up a point, losing in a shootout to Selkirk on Friday.

All this of course means, both Swan Valley and Waywayseecappo went 0-2.

On Saturday, the Stampeders fell 6-3 to Portage. Sam Briscoe scored his first MJHL goal, while Tony Partridge and Beau Taylor had the others, and TJ Fairall picked up a pair of assists.

The Wolverines dropped a 3-1 decision to the Winnipeg, with Brett Pinkerton scoring their lone marker.

As we hit Thanksgiving, and roughly the one month mark, the Stamps and Wolves are both 3-5-1, good for 7 points and a third place tie in the Sherwood.

Terriers wont be in second for long. Good thing we had a nice new rink to look at on Sat, not much else was going on! That was the worst effort I have seen from a Terrier team in a long time.
