VERNON, B.C. -- Chase Norrish didnt want his season, or his junior hockey career, to end one game short of the Canadian Junior A Championship game. Norrish scored the winning goal and added a key assist as the Yorkton Terriers doubled the host Vernon Vipers 6-3 in a semifinal contest at the RBC Cup Saturday. The Saskatchewan representatives will meet Ontarios Carleton Place Canadians -- who advanced with an upset comeback 4-3 win over the Dauphin Kings later Saturday -- in the final Sunday. Both Yorkton and Carleton Place are seeking their first Canadian championship. "It means quite a lot to the guys, I guess, going to the last game that you can possibly play this season," said Norrish. Norris, a 21-year-old Strongfield, Sask., native, will see his junior eligibility expire Sunday before he heads off to play U.S. college hockey next season at Rochester Institute of Technology. "Its a great feeling," said Norrish of his goal and his assist on the goal that put Yorkton ahead to stay. "I just go out and play hockey. a A lot of hard work went into this team, and its a great feeling to get to the next step." Norrish scored at 11:39 of the second period, giving the Terriers a 4-2 lead before Yorkton scored two empty-netters in the final two minutes of the game, to ensure their third straight win after starting the tournament 0-2. "We dont like to be put in a spot where were going to be eliminated," said Norrish. "It kind of sticks in some guys." Daylan Gatzke led Yorkton with two goals, with one going into an empty net, as the Terriers thwarted Vernons attempt at a desperate rally. Tanner Lishchynsky, Dylan Johnson and Tayler Thompson, into an empty net, also scored for Yorkton. Goaltender Kale Thomson made 34 saves. Brett Mulcahy, Michael McNicholas and Dexter Dancs replied for the Vipers, who enjoyed a 37-31 edge in shots. The Terriers scored on one of five power plays while the Vipers converted on two of six. Vernon overcame an early 2-0 deficit to create a 2-2 tie early in the second period. But Yorktons defence remained tight while killing a pair of penalties, including a Vernon two-man advantage for 26 seconds, in the third. "Right now, its deflating and a pretty emotional group in (the dressing room), because they have a loot of pride and they wanted to bring a seventh national title to the town of Vernon," said Vipers coach Jason Williamson. Johnson put the Terriers ahead 3-2 at 8:57 of the second period as he deflected in Norrishs wrist shot. Vernon goaltender Austin Smith, who was replaced by Danny Todosychuk after Norrishs goal, allowed four goals on 16 shots. The goaltending change had an effect on the Vipers as Dancs scored during a scramble only 59 seconds later. "We played great when we were desperate, and obviously, we didnt want to go down two goals," said Dancs. "But it happened and we fought back to make it 2-2, and (the win) didnt come for us." Later, Dylan Gareaus goal on a one-timer at 10:43 of the third period gave Carleton Place the win as the fourth-place Canadians upset first-place Dauphin. The upset shocked Carleton Place coach Jason Clarke, who says he never envisioned that his team would reach the Canadian final when the season began nine months ago. "We didnt play a very good game for the first 40 minutes, and in the third period, we really showed what kind of hockey club we can be," he said. The Ottawa-area victors outshot Dauphin 16-2 in the final frame. But after taking a 1-0 lead, the Canadians had to overcome 2-1 and 3-2 deficits to forge a 3-3 tie. "The guys played great," said Carleton Place goaltender Guillaume Therien. "I struggled in the first, for sure. But I give credit to the guys, for sure, in the third. Two shots on goal in the third? What else can I ask for?" Anthony McVeigh led the Canadians with two goals, with the second going into an empty net in the final minute. Carleton Place got other goals from Luke Richards and Andy Sturtz, who also assisted on the winning goal. "We knew Dauphin was a strong team," said Sturtz. "Their goaltender (Michael Stiliadis) had an unbelievable tournament. He had a good game again today." Dylan Butler, Tanner Butler and Brayden Cuthbert scored for Dauphin. "I thought the first two periods, we played well enough to win," said Kings coach Marlin Murray. "The third period, we had a rough one. We were on our heels the whole time." The Canadians will attempt to beat Yorkton for a second time in the tournament. Carleton Place qualified for the playoff portion of the RBC Cup by beating the Terriers in the final round-robin game. Notes: Norrishs twin brother Brady also plays defence for Yorkton and will head to RIT with his sibling next season. a The Vipers last won the RBC Cup in 2010, when they earned the second of back-to-back titles. a Yorkton forward Derek Falloon is a cousin of former NHLer Pat Falloon, who was drafted second overall by the San Jose Sharks in 1991 behind Eric Lindros.

Carolina, 10.5-point underdogs to the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, were ruled out of playoffs before December by most fans and media members. Yet, the Panthers reeled off four straight wins in December after a six-game losing skid and squeaked into the playoffs as NFC South champions. The Panthers season rarely lacked drama; a 37-37 tie against the Cincinnati Bengals proved key in their playoff berth and a car crash that forced quarterback Cam Newton to miss a crucial game in December. In a surprising turn of events, the Panthers entered their Wild Card matchup against the 11-5 - yet, heavily banged-up - Arizona Cardinals as six-point favourites. The Panthers covered the spread with a 27-16 victory and held the Cardinals to a post-season record 78 yards. However, the Panthers turned the ball over three times against the Cardinals, a stat line they will need to avoid against the much stronger Seattle Seahawks. Newton, who returned in Week 16 after missing one week with two back fractures due to the accident, threw one interception and lost a fumble against the Cardinals. Those things cant happen,” Newton said after his first career playoff win, “especially in playoff football. We cant expect to win when we have three turnovers. The 2011 first-overall pick struggled in many during the regular season, including against the Seahawks in Week 8, but has thrown seven touchdowns to two interceptions in his last four games. Newton has also rushed for 232 yards on 37 carries in that span – an average of over six yards per carry. Newton’s may need to put his legs on display once again against a Seahawks defence known for their ability to play the pass. With All-Pros Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas likely to be locked on Newton’s top targets, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and tight end Greg Olsen, Newton may be forced to make plays on his known for the Panthers to have a chance. Benjamin and Olsen tied for the Panthers lead with 1,008 receiving yards, but will face a tough test against the Seahawks ‘Legion of Boom’ secondary. The entire Carolina receiving core had a quiet day against the Panthers, but nine players made a catch in the win. Little used receiver Philly Brown and second-string tight end Ed Dickson each chipped in gains of 20 yards and running back Fozzy Whittaker scored a touchdown oon a 39-yard screen pass.ddddddddddddThough Brown’s status remains unclear for Saturday due to a shoulder injury, the Panthers will again need depth players to step up against a top defence. Though the Seahawks secondary attracts most of the attention, the team’s stingy front seven make running the football also extremely difficult. Running back Jonathan Stewart has played a key role in the Panthers current win streak, and was one of the NFL’s hottest back to close the season. In their matchup earlier this season, Stewart was able to gain 79 yards against the NFL’s third-ranked run defence. He will look to better that mark in Seattle this time around. As a team, the Panthers gained 188 yards on the ground against the Cardinals in Wild Card weekend, a number unlikely to be reached this week. The Seahawks gave up more than 160 rushing yards twice this season, in losses to the Dallas Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs. Coming off their historic performance, the Panthers will not have the benefit of matching up against a third string quarterback this week. Instead, the unit will take on the league’s top dual-threat quarterback this season in Russell Wilson. In their first matchup, Wilson threw for 199 yards with a touchdown and interception while rushing for 35 yards. Their success against Wilson and star running back Marshawn Lynch (14, 62 carries) will be something the improving group will hope to emulate. With their win over the Cardinals, the Panther became the sixth team to win a playoff game after finishing the regular season at .500 or worse and win a playoff game. Unfortunately for the Panthers, all five teams in that category before them have lost in the divisional round – including the 2010 Seattle Seahawks. But recent history is not on the side of the Seahawks either. Coming Super Bowl wins, no defending champion has won a playoff game since the 2005 New England Patriots. That win came in the same playoffs as the Panthers and Seahawks only other playoff meeting. The Seahawks won that game 34-14 and this week will mark the first road playoff game the Panthers have played since. In their return to road postseason action – and Seattle – the Panthers are 10.5-underdogs to the defending champions. Keeping the game close will be of the utmost importance for the Panthers as they hope to keep their unlikely run towards to the Super Bowl alive.
