It was a tough night at the rink for the Flin Flon Bombers on Friday as they couldn't keep the puck out of the back of their net.
The Notre Dame Hounds rolled into town and had no trouble scoring goals with an impressive 8-5 win in front of over 900 spectators.
Charles Martin did a lot of the damage picking up a 4 point night including his 7th goal of the season.
The Hounds never trailed in the game leading 2-1 after 1 on goals from Wilton and Renwick. Brandson Hein scored his league leading 25th for the Bombers.
Flin Flon would tie the game early in the second when Mason Martin scored his first of the season just 2:17 in. That was short lived as Notre Dame scored two quick goals from Hamm and Tarbell to go up 4-2.
Calvon Boots made it a one goal game , firing his 6th of the season from just inside the blue line to fool Riley Kohonick. It looked like the shot hit someone in front of the net and changed direction.
Any time Flin Flon would get a goal to get back in the game, the Hounds would answer quickly. Conor Maclean scored his first of the year to put Notre Dame up 5-3.
Saying that, the Bombers would tie it before the second period was complete on a power play goal from Marchi (17) and Caleb Moretz's first goal since October the 11th, his 12th of the year.
Moretz missed over a month of the season with a lower body injury.
All even at 5 to start the third period, Flin Flon couldn't mount any more offense, and watched the Hounds score three unanswered to win the game 8-5 courtesy of Martin, Gould and Penner.
It was a tough night for Pierce Diamond who was pulled after giving up 4 goals on 14 shots. Jacob Delorme didn't fare much better and actually gave up a goal on the first shot he faced, when he entered the game in the second period.
He ended the night giving up 4 goals on 24 shots. The Hounds Riley Kohonick made the saves he had to and stopped 27 out of 32.
This was a big win for the Hounds who are now tied with the Kindersley Klippers for third in the Global Ag Risk Solutions Division with 31 points. Notre Dame went 2-1 on their Northern road trip with a 2-1 loss in Nipawin last night.
Flin Flon dropped their second straight home game and are starting to fall behind the two top clubs in the Sherwood. The Bombers are 7 points behind first place Melfort and 5 behind second place Nipawin.
The home stand will continue against Weyburn on Wednesday and Estevan on Friday, which will also be broadcast on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.
