It was two very different games, but Yorkton's Warren Shymko and Melville's Alex Wakaluk both picked up shutouts Wednesday night.

Shymko had plenty of margin for error thanks to the offense in front of him, but stopped all 30 shots he faced in a 9-0 win in Estevan.

Curtis Oliver scored the first two Terrier goals, 18 seconds apart early in the first. It was 3-0 after one, 7-0 after two, before they tacked on two more in the third.

Justin Lamontagne also scored twice, while the others came from Brady Norrish, Keven Cann, Riley Paterson, Zak Majkowski and Ryon Sookro. Nathan Murray had 3 assists.

The Terriers are 4-1 against the Bruins this season, and Estevan's only lost 7 games all season. The Terriers are also responsible for Steven Glass's only 2 losses. He was lifted after 5 goals, while Brandon Stone gave up the other 4.


In Melville, there was a little more pressure on Alex Wakaluk to be perfect.

The Mils and Humboldt Broncos were scoreless after regulation, before T.J. Reeve buried the winner with 51 seconds left in overtime, for a 1-0 win, and Wakaluk's first SJHL shutout, a 38 save performance.

The Broncos out-shot the Mils 16-7 in the third period, 38-34 on the night.

Melville's off until Tuesday, when they head to Humboldt.
