The Terriers pulled ahead at the 8:06 mark , but Nikolas Sombrowski evened out the score for the Wings.

An early Terriers goal in the third put the pressure on the Wings and Mathieu Belanger delivered with a goal to tie up the game and send it into overtime.

Overtime solved nothing so the game moved on to a shootout.

The game ended 4-3 in favour of the Terriers after the Red Wings were only able to land one in netting, while the Terriers were able to get two past Joseph Young.

Final shots were 46-41 for the Red Wings.

The following night the Red Wings took the ice in Humboldt.

Over 11 minutes into the first period, the Broncos lead 1-0, but Belanger and Liam Rutten were able to score 13 seconds apart from each another just as the period was winding down.

The score remained 2-1 until Kabir Gill earned his third goal of the season.

The Broncos pulled their goaltender from the net to gain an extra man late in the third, and while the man advantage did earn them one goal, the empty net also allowed Braden Birnie and Sombrowski to score empty netters.

Douglas Wakelyn earned his first SJHL career win as the Red Wings walked away with a 5-2 win.

Final shots were 53-27 for the Broncos with Wakelyn earning the second star of the game.

Next up the Red Wings play in Yorkton once again on Monday.
