Yorkton stays alive at RBC Cup

Tayler Thompson had the eventual winner as the Yorkton Terriers scored three unanswered goals for a 3-1 victory over the Carleton Place Canadians on Wednesday in RBC Cup preliminary round play.

The Terriers' win means three teams — Yorkton, the Toronto Lakeshore Patriots and host Vernon Vipers (all 1-2) — are competing for two semifinal berths on Thursday as the preliminary round of the Canadian junior A hockey championship comes to an end.

Brett Boehm and Chase Norrish both had power-play goals for Yorkton, while Kale Thomson made 25 saves for the win.

Anthony McVeigh's short-handed goal gave Carleton Place (2-2-0) a 1-0 lead at the 9:36 mark of the first period. Guillaume Therien stopped 34 shots for the Canadians.

The Terriers went 2 for 6 on the power play, while Carleton Place did not score on its three man advantages.

Dauphin MB leads the five-team round robin with a perfect 3-0 record and are guaranteed to finish atop the standings.

The round robin concludes Thursday.

Dauphin take on Yorkton at 2 p.m. while the Vipers face Toronto at 7 p.m.

The semi-finals are set for 2 and 6 p.m. Saturday with the final Sunday at 4:30.
