Swift Current's Daylan Gatzke and the Yorkton Terriers are national champions after winning the RBC Cup in Vernon, B.C. Sunday.

Derek Falloon scored 15:01 into overtime to lift the Terriers to a 4-3 comeback win over the Carleton Place Canadians for the team's first Junior A National Championship.

The Terriers had trailed by one-goal and two-goal deficits before battling back to force overtime. Gatzke scored in the first period to tie the game 1-1 with his third goal in the past two games.

The Canadians scored twice in the second period to carry a two-goal lead late into regulation. Tanner Lischynsky and Dylan Johnson scored just eight seconds apart for Yorkton late in the third period to force overtime.

Kale Thomson earned the win with 31 saves, while Guillaume Therien took the loss with 42 saves on 46 shots over 75:01.

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League champion Terriers lost their first two games at the five-team tournament before rebounding to win four straight in their fifth RBC Cup appearance.

    I am a Surrey Eagle fan but could not be more thrilled than with the Terriers win. I watched the Terriers play in Nanaimo last year and was impressed with the Norrish Brothers and others. Well done lads and enjoy your first RBC cup. You earned it. Long hard road.
