There were a pair of games on the schedule in the SJHL Tuesday night. They were both key divisional matchups, as the Estevan Bruins entertained the Yorkton Terriers, and the Flin Flon Bombers paid a visit to the Nipawin Hawks.

In Estevan, the Bruins entered the game six points back of Yorkton for first place in the Viterra Division. It would also be the first time this season the Bruins would face former Red Wings goaltender Riley Lamb in net. Estevan would come out on top, doubling up Yorkton 4-2.

Jack Michell opened the scoring for Estevan before the game was four minutes old. The Terriers quickly replied as Branden Klatt netted his 20th goal of the season. Yorkton then took the lead in the second period as Chantz Petruic scored his 21st.

The Bruins rallied in the second half of the middle period, with Jayden Davis putting the pick past Lamb to tie the game 2-2.

In the third period, Turner Ripplinger scored the game-winner at the 5:46 mark. He would then add an empty net goal with two seconds left to seal the victory.

With the win, the Bruins are now four points back of Yorkton, but the Terriers do have two games in hand.

In the other matchup, the highest scoring offence in the SJHL paid a visit to the top defensive team in the league. The Flin Flon Bombers have scored 156 goals in 37 games, while Nipawin has allowed just 79 goals in 40 games.

It would be the offence who won out, as the Bombers recorded a 4-1 victory.

The Hawks jumped out to the lead in the matchup, scoring the lone goal of the first period when Colton Gerlib put the puck past Jacob Delorme with just under three minutes remaining in the opening frame. After the intermission, though, it would be all Flin Flon.

The scoring started with Caleb Franklin finding the twine behind Declan Hobbs. Vincent Nardone then followed it up with his 15th of the year to give the Bombers the lead. Chrystopher Collin then added a goal with six minutes left in the second period to make it 3-1 Flin Flon.

Matt Flodell added an insurance marker in the third period to give the Bombers the 4-1 victory.

There is just one game on the schedule in the SJHL Wednesday night. The Melfort Mustangs host the Melville Millionaires.
