Thank you for clarifying that point but the two goals were scored much earlier so there is no cause and effect here. Also no resultant goals scored as result of coaching decision to put Petrell in topsix. An argument could be made that it reduced chances of a 4th SJ goal. Which was looking likely as well.

The only reason I clarified that yak was not "benched" in the 3rd is that the tar and pitchforks were out killing coachs again and in this case anyway, false attribution imo.

As another poster suggested Yak playing or not had nothing to do with the two goals, had nothing to do with the outcome.
