Atom Broncos drop championship series opener

The Swift Current Tarpon Energy Broncos picked an inopportune time for a poor effort when they lost 6-2 to the host Yorkton Terriers Friday. The Terriers now lead the South East Atom Tier I Hockey League best-of-three championship series 1-0 heading back to Swift Current.

Ryder Rommelaere and Hudson Darby scored in the loss with assists from Carter Tuplin and Makstr McIntyre.

Game two is set for Sunday at 3 p.m. at Fairview East Arena.
