YORKTON UCT BANTAM AA TERRIERS assistant team captain Kholton Shewchuk and teammate Jake Holinaty battle for the puck during the first of a three game playoff series with the visiting Regina Oilers at the Kinsmen Arena.

The Yorkton UCT Bantam AA Terriers hosted the Regina Oilers in the first round of the Saskatchewan Bantam AA Hockey League playoffs. The Bantam AA Terriers claimed a 4-1 win in Game 1 of the best of three games series.

Following a scoreless first period, Reid Massier scored the opening goal for Regina to give the Oilers a brief, one goal edge early in the second frame.

Jake Holinaty led the Yorkton scoring with a pair of goals, one in each of the second and third periods. Holinaty pulled the Bantam Terriers even late in the second period assisted by Kylan Shea.

Kholton Shewchuk scored Yorkton's go-ahead goal assisted by Chance Patterson with a little over two minutes remaining in the second period.

Holinaty added Yorkton's third goal late in the third assisted by Shewchuk.

Tanner Mak capped the scoring in the game to clinch the 4-1 win for the Bantam Terriers assisted by Steven St. Marie and Caleb Sutter.

The second game of the best of three series was played at the Co-operators Centre in Regina. Despite the Bantam Terriers best intentions to claim the series, the Regina Oilers held them off to claim a 2-1 overtime win.

Tanner Mak scored the lone goal for Yorkton, a single handed marker.

The series, tied at one game apiece, returned to Yorkton for the third and deciding game Tuesday night.

Despite the great start at home by the Bantam Terriers in the first game, they were not able to capitalize on the home ice advantage as the determined Regina Oilers won the game and the series with a 4-0 shutout win.

The loss effectively ends the season for the Yorkton AA Bantam Terriers.
