VERNON - The RBC Cup's semifinal participants were decided by a pair of overtime games.

Derek Falloon scored in overtime to lift the Yorkton Terriers to a 2-1 win over the Dauphin Kings on Thursday in the final day of preliminary round play at the RBC Cup.

Later, Dexter Dancs power-play goal in the extra period powered the host Vernon Vipers past the Toronto Lakeshore Patriots 3-2.

The second game of the day saw Brett Mulcahy and Demico Hannoun score in regulation time for the Vipers (2-2-0), while Austin Smith turned aside 22 shots for the win.

Michael Prapavessis's power-play goal with 36 seconds left in the third forced overtime for Toronto (1-3-0), while Andreas Tsogkas scored in the first for the Lakeshore Patriots. Evan Buitenhuis made 43 saves in net.

Semifinal play will begin on Friday.
