After the Melville Millionaires won both ends of the season's first double-dip with Yorkton by lopsided scores, the Terriers answered with a 6-3 win to kick off Round 2.
The Terriers, on the road, built a 3-0 lead, but allowed the Mils to close it to 3-2, before eventually opening it back up to 6-2, and holding on for a 6-3 final.
The line of Nathan Murray, Riley Paterson and Curtis Oliver combined for 6 points, while Tayler Thompson scored once and added a helper. Brent Struble, Keven Cann and Kyle McLeod also found the net.
Russell Trudeau scored twice for Melville, giving him 13 goals and 22 points in 10 games. Michael Sagen added a goal, and Lee Christensen had 2 assists.
Blake Voth lost for the first time in Mils colours, stopping 34/40 shots. Warren Shymko earned the win, making 36/39 saves.
The two teams square off again Saturday night at Farrell Agencies Arena in Yorkton.
Derek Falloon wasted no time making a good impression with his new teammates and coaching staff.
In his first game as a Swan Valley Stampeder, Falloon notched a hat trick, as part of a 7-1 win over the Neepawa Natives, a win that snapped a 9 game winless skid for the Stamps.
Interestingly enough, in Falloon's last MJHL game, a month ago with the Dauphin Kings, he had another hat trick, also against Neepawa.
Beau Taylor and Justin Valentino each had a goal and an assist, while Jayson Argue made his return to the Stampeders' crease, stopping 24/25 shots in the win.
The Stamps travel to Neepawa on Saturday, while the Wayway Wolverines host Portage.
