The Melfort Mustangs 10 game winning streak has come to an end.

The Yorkton Terriers are to blame for the Mustang loss as they defeated the Mustangs on Friday night by a score of 5-2 in the first game on the Mustangs Parent-Billet weekend.

Chantz Petruic scored for Yorkton to open up the scoring. Justin Ball tied it up a minute later to extend his outrageous point streak to 26 games. The Terriers scored shortly after that, courtesy of Cody Bruchkowski to make it 2-1 after the first period.

Yorkton extended that lead in the third period, about halfway through when Cody Bruchkowski scored his second goal of the evening, giving the Terriers a 3-1 lead at the end of two periods of play.

Kurri Woodford and Branden Klatt scored in the first 72 seconds of the third period, chasing Mustang netminder Hunter Arps who allowed 5 goals on 27 shots. Shawn Parkinson would shut the door the rest of the way. Leading to the Mustangs getting a goal from Braeden Young with about 40 seconds to play. That left the final score at 5-2. Head Coach of the Mustangs, Trevor Blevins, said things when wrong right away for the team.

“Right from the drop of the puck,” Blevins said “We weren’t very good at all, we weren’t hard enough, just didn’t have a lot of jump in our game, didn’t have enough edge. Give credit to Yorkton, they came out hard, they were physical and we just didn’t have an answer for it. I thought as the game went on we couldn’t find a response and played on our heels most of the night.”

The Mustangs fall to 20-7-1-0 and are back in action on Saturday Dec. 1 when they host the Estevan Bruins. Following that game, the team will hold their annual Calcutta Shootout.
