Dawson MacAuley turned in a second straight solid performance, stopping 29/30 shots in a 3-1 Yorkton Terriers' win over the Melville Millionaires.
The Terriers out-shot the Mils 50-30, and got goals from Zak Majkowski, Brenden Poncelet and Kyle McLeod (EN).
Michael Desjarlais scored for the Millionaires, tying the game 5 minutes into the third period.
Blake Voth nearly stole one, like he did twice over New Year's weekend, making 47/49 saves in goal for the Millionaires.
The Terriers are now 5 points up on the Mils for 2nd place in the Sherwood.
Now, will the season series follow its script, and the Terriers sweep to tie the head-to-head matchups at 4? Or, will the Mils make it the first split of the season, and clinch the Parks Cup on home ice?

Speaking of stealing games... the Swan Valley Stampeders were out-shot 47-14 by the Portage Terries, but Jayson Argue made 45 saves, as the Stamps won 5-2.
The Stamps scored two late empty-netters to make it a 3-goal game.
Dylan Favell, Derek Falloon and Beau Taylor each had a goal and an assist for the Stampeders, while Landon Peel and Dylan Reimer scored the others.
That puts Swan Valley 3 points up on Wayway for a playoff spot, and they've now played one extra game.
Saturday night, Swan's in Neepawa, and Wayway's home to Selkirk. Sunday, Swan's in Wayway for a makeup game... the first of five remaining head to head meetings between our two local clubs.
