The Yorkton Terriers snapped their 2 game losing streak on Tuesday night as they defeated the Notre Dame Hounds 4-3 in the shootout in Wilcox.
The Terriers would strike first on the road just 1:45 into the 1st as Dino Antoniadis (pictured above) took a nice chip pass from Cole Keenleyside and worked his way into the Hounds’ zone and snap home his 2nd of the year over the right pad of Andrew Henderson to give the Terriers an early 1-0 lead. The score would stay like that until Nolan Renwick would find a soft spot in the slot and beat Ben Laidlaw five-hole for his 7th of the year to tie it up at 1-1 after 20 minutes.
The two teams would once again exchange goals in the 2nd period. First off just 3:54 into the middle frame, Charles Martin’s long point shot would beat screened Laidlaw for his 6th of the season to give the home-side their first lead at 2-1. But the Terriers would be able to respond as Branden Klatt’s long slap shot would re-direct off a Hound in front for his 12th to make it 2-2 after 2 periods.
In the 3rd, just 35 seconds in it wold be Jaret Penner pouncing on a loose puck to give his team the lead once again at 3-2. But once again the Terriers would find a way to even it up as with just 34 seconds left, Dino Antoniadis would re-direct home a long point shot to make it 3-3 and force a overtime period.
In the overtime, both teams would have some glorious chance. First off, Casey McDonald who was brought up from the Moose Jaw Generals (SMAAAHL) was awarded a penalty shot but was denied by the blocker of Henderson. Then later on, Marshall Wilton found Nolan Renwick back door wide open but he was turned aside by an unreal stop by Ben Laidlaw.
In the shootout Aiden Bulych and Casey McDonald would score only the goals and Laidlaw stopped both Hounds’ shooters to help his team earn the extra point.
Ben Laidlaw made 30 saves on 34 shots to earn his 7th win of the season while Hounds goalie Andrew Henderson made 27 saves in the loss.
The Terriers’ next game will be a neutral site game on Saturday night in Canora against the Estevan Bruins at 7:30 while the Hounds go right back at it on Wednesday when they visit the Bruins.
