The Terriers kicked off the road trip with a win, 5-3 over the Klippers.

They were up 4-1 and had chances to put the game away, but Brandon Stone kept the Klippers in it, and they added two third period goals to cut it to 4-3, and got a powerplay in the final minute+. But, with the goalie out, and on the PK, the Terriers' Nathan Murray wristed it from his own blue line, wide of the Klippers' goal, but it bounced right to Tayler Thompson, and the Klippers' defensemen seemed to quit on the play, thinking that icing was coming. Thompson appeared to almost stop too, just for a split second, and then promptly took a couple strides and slid it into the empty net to ice it.

Chase Norrish scored one of the prettiest goals of the season, going end to end, through the Klippers' team, and made it 4-1 at the time. His twin brother Brady was in the booth, and said (on the air) that Chase's goal was even a little nicer than his (Brady's) first SJHL goal, where he also went coast to coast and went upstairs.

Nathan Murray and Tyler Giebel scored twice each and captain Riley Paterson opened the scoring.

The Terriers appeared to have the game in control, up 4-1, and credit the Klippers for battling back, but it's safe to say they'll have to be better against the league-leading Battlefords North Stars on Thursday night.

Trent Cassan said on the post game show they "got too cute at times." Woody Klassen, Travis Sparrow and company likely won't allow dangles and toe-drags in their house.

The Stars have won 11 straight games, while the Terriers are now tied for 3rd with Melville, both with 33 points in 30 games played.

Check back tomorrow!
