The Mustangs would grab the early lead with only goal of the 1st period as Nolan Kadachuk’s long shot would produce a big rebound off of Ryan Ouellette and Ben Tkachuk would capitalize on it for his 2nd of the season to make it 1-0 for the visitors after 1 period with Melfort also leading the shot clock 14-6.
The home team would draw even at 1-1 and it would be Kurri Woodford capitalizing on a rebound of his own for his 2nd of the season just 7:11 into the middle frame. Then just 46 seconds later, Jaxon Blight would give the Terriers their first lead with his 1st SJHL goal as his wrister would go top-shelf over the left shoulder of Shawn Parkinson to give Yorkton a one goal lead after 40 minutes.
Shots after 2 period was 28-16 in favour of the visiting Mustangs.
In the 3rd, the Mustangs would draw even just 6:57 into the period after an outstanding stop by Ryan Ouellette on the initial shot the rebound would come out to Zach Anderson who found Colton Schell back-door for his 2nd on the PP to make it 2-2.
But just 51 seconds laterm, Terrier F Steven Norum grabbed the puck off the end boards and snuck it short-side on Parkinson for his 3rd of the campaign which would stand-up to be the game winner before Ryan Ries would ice the game with the empty netter in the final seconds.
