The Yorkton Terriers became the Humboldt Broncos' 13th straight victim last night, as the Broncos played some smothering team defense, giving up very few scoring chances to win 3-0.

Shots were 42-25 Humboldt, and Taylor Duzan scored twice, while Joey Davies had the other.

Matt Hrynkiw got his second straight shutout for Humboldt, while the Terriers did hit five posts. Kelly Leismeister cranked a slapshot off the crossbar when it was 0-0 in the first, Zak Majkowski and Riley Paterson struck iron in the second period... Paterson's was on a short-handed 2-on-1. Brady Norrish and Nathan Murray also found the pipe in period three.

The Terriers finish their trip in Kindersley tonight.

My voice barely hung on until the end of the post game show... and this morning, I can hardly speak! Bad time of year to get sick. Cup of Lemon Tea/Honey as I type.


Our MJHL teams both earned points... as the Swan Valley Stampeders won their second straight game, 4-1 over the Winnipeg Saints.

Shots were 40-33 for Swan Valley, but Jayson Argue stopped 39 for the win.

Derek Falloon and Colin Baudry each had a goal and an assist, Brendan Mitchell and Justin Valentino also scored, and Beau Taylor added two assists.

The Wayway Wolverines were up 2-0 on the first place Dauphin Kings, but Jesse Sinatynski scored a natural hat trick from there, and the Kings won 3-2 in overtime.

Sinatynski now has 44 goals in 40 games.

Zaine Walker and Ashley Howie scored for Wayway. Shots were 41-23 for Dauphin. Cory Simons made 38 saves for the Wolverines.

With last night's results, the Stampeders pick up another point in the race, as they're now three points back of Wayway for a playoff spot.

Swan's home to the Winnipeg Blues tonight, while Wayway's in Neepawa on Sunday.

I don't want to throw anyone under the bus, but I didn't know he was going with that hit until he said it, I always let my colour guy (whoever it is) to pick three starts, hardest working, hardest hit, etc.

He talked about it being a momentum changer, which I agree with, but I always try to avoid using a penalty, especially one that leads to an injury, as the "Hit of the Game."

No disrespect intended, I hope Curtis will be back soon, and I told him that in person after the game.

Lorne quit being a cry baby Bird got three games and did not intentionally do that......Yorkton at times have done things they got away with.....quit blaming the reporters for what they thought was a hard hit.

Totally agree with previous post..Lorne get over was not an intentional knee by Bird. The kid simply has speed and plays physical not bad for a so called small guy. Mils could use more like him now that Parker has left!
