It was a weekend of opposites for the Peewee Estevan Bruins, taking on the Yorkton Terriers back to back in the Power Dodge Ice Center.

Matias Fornwald opened the scoring on Saturday for Estevan in the first frame, while Carter Onrait added three more in the second to give the Bruins a 4-0 lead. That was followed by Ryker Mathison before the period was over, though Yorkton solved Ty Ferenbach with just over a minute left. The Terriers began to narrow the score in the third, but Mason Barta restored the four goal lead for a 6-2 victory. 

The script then completely flipped the next day. Yorkton had a 3-0 lead after the first frame, doubled it after two, and added another pair in the third to take an 8-2 win. Kade Phillips and Carter Hirsch scored in the third for Estevan.

"Saturday we showed up, battled hard and competed. Sunday, right from the start, we weren't in it. Getting down 3-0 early, it led to the final score," stated Head Coach Aren Miller.

"It just comes down to a bit of maturity when we get to the rink, being prepared. Yorkton's got a good program up there. They don't like losing and we kind of gave them a pretty good beating Saturday, and they returned the favor Sunday. That's how it goes sometimes. I was more disappointed in the way we came out flat to start, when we should have been flying. It's our home rink, we're playing for first place and we could have been tied in the standings with losses after Sunday. We just didn't show up to play hard enough."

The Bruins still retain the top spot in the standings for now, with a 9-5-1 record. They return to the ice on December 16th hosting the Swift Current Broncos.
