Better Effort Same Result

The Flin Flon Bombers played their hearts out but came up a little bit short in Kindersley and dropped their 6th straight game 5-4 to the Klippers.


Mike Wong got the Bombers off to a good start with his second of his the season just 2:08 into the opening period.


Kindersley then struck for three quick goals from Peck, Ryberg and Thompson. Mason Martin would get one back for Flin Flon to make it 3-2 in favour of Kindersley after 1.


Rob Johnson continues to be one of Flin Flon's better offensive players since ariving from the AJHL as he would tie the game on the PP early in the second. This was Johnson's 6th goal in 11 games with the Bombers.


The Klippers would once again respond with Thompson and Ryberg picking up their second of the night to put Kindersley up 5-3 after 2.


Caleb Moretz would score late in the third period for the Bombers, but that is as close as they would get and the Klippers held on for a 5-4 win.


This was the third straight start for Brenden Newton who stopped 25 out of 30 shots while Billy Girard got the call for the Klippers and he stopped 25 out of 29.


Both teams were able to strike on the power play with the Bombers going 1 for 6 and the Klippers 2 for 6.


Kindersley lead the season series 2-1 and these two teams will meet for the fourth and final time tonight, 7:30 at the West Central Events Centre.


The Bombers need something good to happen to give them a lift heading into the holidays and have dropped 18 of their last 23 games. A big win tonight would give them a nice confidence booster especially on the road where they have just one victory this season.


The Bombers really miss Crystopher Collin and his 23 points, as they are missing that game breaker who can score a big goal when they really need it. Collin not only picked up  a Gold medal at the World JR A Challenge in Truro, but has also been selected to play in the CJHL Prospects game Jan 23rd in Mississauga Ontario.


Collin leads all rookies in the SJHL in goals with 14 and sits 6th in points with 23.
