The SR Creighton Kodiak Girls basketball team were in Norquay this past weekend and had their best showing of the season.

 

After beating Preeceville and Canora, the Kodiaks played Naicam in the final.

 

With only 8 players the Kodiaks dominated and ended up winning the Championship 56-41.

 

This will give the Kodiak Girls lots of confidence as they head off to Carrot River next weekend for Conference Championships.

 

The Kodiak Boys will host here.

 

 

The Hapnot SR Boys were in Swan River for the Kinsmen Tip Off Tournament this past weekend.

 

The Kings beat Russell 68-34 then lost to Swan River 64 to 52. They would rebound to beat Neelin out of Brandon 49-48 to place third.

 

This is a big weekend for Hapnot as they will host Zones starting Friday.

It was a tough weekend for the Flin Flon Bombers to say the very least. Not only did they drop both games to the Battleford Stars but they were out scored 14-3.

 

Things went bad early Friday when Reed Delainey scored 34 seconds into the game, and the Stars never looked back picking up the convincing 9-1 victory.

 

Igor Leonenko and Jake McMillen both registerded hat tricks and combined for 7 points and were responsible for quite the offensive show.

 

It didn't help that the Bombers took lot's of penaltys and were short handed 14 times including three 5 on 3's.

 

Mike Reagan summed it up after the game," you are not going to beat anybody if you head to the penalty box that many times."

 

Greyson Reitmeier had the lone goal for the Bombers,  as he was the only player to beat Tyler Fuhr early in the third period.

 

Zac Robidoux went the distance for the Bombers and didn't get a lot of support stopping 32 out of 41 shots.

 

I think everyone expected the Bombers to be a lot better team on Saturday including the Stars themselves who had struggled against Flin Flon the first 4 meetings of the year.

 

Flin Flon got off to a good start when Kristian St.Onge batted a puck out of the air to open the scoring at 15:21 of the first period.

 

The referee waved off the goal initially, but after talking with his linesman they decided it was a good goal.

 

Battleford responded quickly and tied the game a minute later when Davidson went in alone and beat Robidoux five hole.

 

This came after a controversial hit on Tyson Empey.  Jordan Wiest caught Empey with his head down around center ice and took a liberty on a player that should have resulted in a penaly and misconduct. I am assuming the Bombers will send the video in to the league office. Empey did not return to the ice after the questionable hit.

 

Mike Reagan explained after the game that the official admitted to missing it. No word on Empey's status at this time.

 

The Bombers were feeling better about their chances in the second game and were tied at 1 starting the second period.

 

Igor Leonenko took over right where he left off the night before scoring 2 nice goals in the second, his 42nd and 43rd of the year. His second stood up as the game winner. He now trails Travis Mayan of the Mustangs by 2 for the overall league lead.

 

Battleford took a 3-1 lead into the third and got a big insurance goal from Gorgi mid way through the period, before Lavalle would score on the power play for the Bombers to give them hope with just under 2 minutes remaining.

 

With the goalie pulled for the extra attacker, Flin Flon could not get any closer and Davidson would seel the deal with his second of the night as he would put the puck into the empty net and send the Stars to their 40th win of the year with a 5-2 win.

 

This was especially sweet against the Bombers who had owned the Stars the first four meetings of the year.

 

I thought Zac Robidoux bounced back with a nice effort and stopped 35 out of 40 Stars shots and did a nice job handling his rebounds.

 

The North Stars are in control of their own destiny for first overall as they lead Melfort by 3 points and Weyburn by 5 with 3 games to go .

 

Battleford will finish up with Humboldt and a home and home with Kindersley.

 

As for the Bombers they did get a favour from Laronge who beat Nipawin in a shoot out Saturday, so the Hawks lead the Bombers by 4 points for fourth overall with 3 games remaining. Flin Flon also have Estevan breathing down their necks  for fifth and  are only 3 points behind the Bombers with a game in hand.

 

Flin Flon desperately need all 4 points against Laronge this weekend if they have any hope of catching the Hawks for fourth. The Bombers host the Ice Wolves Friday before travelling to Laronge Saturday and will close out the season against Nipawin at home on Tuesday.

 

The Hawks will play Melfort in a home and home this weekend.

 

Make sure you are listening to our last regular season broadcast from Laronge Saturday with Jamie Smalley looking after the call. It begins with the Murray GM Coach's Show at 6:45 and play by play at 7.

Zac Robidoux guided the Flin Flon Bombers to their second straight shut out victory over the Laronge Ice Wolves on Tuesday night 3-0.

 

Robidoux blocked 25 shots for back to  back shut outs for the second time this season and  has over taken Taryn Kotchorek of the Battleford Stars for the league lead with 5.

 

Robidoux also made Bomber history as he has tied Danny Dennis's  record of shut outs in a single season for a Bomber goalie with 5. Dennis achieved this in the 92-93 season.

 

Who knows with 5 games left,  including 2 more against Laronge maybe Zac will be able to break it.

 

Mason Etter's 5th of the season stood up as last night's game winner , when he collected a nice pass from Reitmeier and buried a  hard wrist shot low glove side on Kris Joyce late in the first period.

 

Flin Flon got insurance goals from the Bomber captain Tyson Empey(14) and Alex Smith who picked up goal no.31.

 

The Bombers have beaten the Ice Wolves 5 out of 6 games this season and have taken 14 out of the last 16 meetings at the Whitney Forum.

 

This is a huge win for the Bombers who improve their record to: 32-17-0-4 and have closed the gap on Nipawin too 1 point for second in the Sherwood and fourth overall. Both teams have played 53 games. This win will also give the Bombers a little more breathing room on Estevan for 5th. Flin Flon is 7 points up with 5 games to go, the Bruins have 6 games remaining.

 

A big challenge is coming the Bombers way this weekend as they will travel to Battleford to take on the power house North Stars.

 

North Battleford is first overall with 80 points and have had the Finning Division title wrapped up for more than a month. They have a 29 point lead on Kindersley who are second in the Division.

 

Flin Flon has played the Stars very well taking all 4 games this season including all 3 at the Whitney Forum and the first matchup in Battleford 4-2 back on December the 19th.

 

Both games will be broadcast on 102.CFAR and flinflononline.com starting with the Murray GM Coach's Show both nights at 7:15 from the Battleford Civic Centre.

The Norman Northstars see their season come to an end with a pair of losses to the Interlake Lightning.

 

Some good news, the Northstars did pick up a point in a 7-6 shoot out loss on Saturday. Norman did score with 49 seconds left in regulation to get the game to OT.

 

That was Norman's first point since the end of November.

 

Flin Flon's Jeremy Dutcawich stopped 30 out of 36 shots.

 

Interlake took the second game Sunday 6-2.

 

Norman will finish the season at: 3-38-0-2-1

The Flin Flon Bombers came out and controlled Notre Dame from start to finish and powered to their 31st victory of the season Saturday, winning 3-0.

 

Alex Smith opened the scoring at 13:29 of the opening period on the power play and the Bombers didn't look back.

 

Kristian St.Onge broke in alone on Alexi Thibaudeau and buried a nice shot low glove hand,  to put the Bombers up 2-0  mid way through the second.

 

Smith would score his second of the night and 30th of the year, when he converted a beautiful pass from Joel Kocur, streaking to the front of the Hound net to re-direct the puck perfectly under the cross bar.

 

This would make it 3-0 after 2, and no goals were scored in the third period.

 

Zac Robidoux made 26 saves for his fourth shut out of the year, which has him tied for the league lead with Taryn Kotchorek of the Battleford Stars.

 

With Smith hitting 30 goals, he is the third player from the maroon and white to hit that plateau and is just the 7th player in the league to do so.

 

Flin Flon  improves to 31-17-0-4 and are having a tough time picking up ground on Nipawin for second in the Sherwood and fourth overall. The Bombers remain 3 points behind the Hawks and they do have a game in hand.

 

The Bombers are 6-4 in their last 10 and Nipawin is 8-2.

 

Flin Flon have 6 games remaining in the regular season and may have to go at it without one of the most talented players in the league ,  Brandon Switzer who is nursing an undisclosed injury and is being evaluated by doctors. Mik Reagan say's they should know something by Tuesday.

 

Next up is the Laronge Ice Wolves who are headed to the post season for the first time in 3 years. The Ice Wolves will be in Flin Flon Tuesday playing some good hockey, beating some good teams including Weyburn on their recent southern road swing.

 

Flin Flon leads the season series 4-1, although the Ice Wolves did get it to a shoot out in their last meeting January the 30th. Game time is 7:30 at the Whitney Forum.

 

No broadcast of this game but we will have both from Battleford on Friday and Saturday.

After a week break the Flin Flon Bombers return to action tomorrow (Saturday) , when they host the Notre Dame Hounds 7:30 at the Whitney Forum.

 

The playoffs may not officially start til the middle of March, but I think it's safe to say with 7 games left on the season and positioning changing on a nightly basis, points will be important every night.

 

Flin Flon's no.1 goal is still to catch Melfort for first in the division, but still need to hold off Nipawin for second in the Sherwood and fourth overall. Estevan has also joined the party and all of a sudden are just 3 points back of the Bombers.

 

Nipawin ( 31-17-2-1) lead the Bombers (30-17-0-4) by 1 point, and both teams have 7 games left on the season. The Hawks play the Hounds tonight, so the Bombers  will have 1 game in hand after tonight. Flin Flon will host Nipawin in the final regular season game on Tuesday March the 8th. Wouldn't that be something if that is the deciding game for fourth overall.

 

Notre Dame is battling it out with Kindersley for 7th, both teams have 49 points and can move up the standings, 5 points behind Laronge. The Hounds have 8 games left, while Kindersley have 7 and Laronge 6. The Hounds are in Laronge Sunday night.

 

The Hounds are 3-1 against the Bombers this season and not only beat them at the Whitney Forum earlier in the year but also eliminated them from the playoffs in a thrilling 7th game last spring.

 

Flin Flon have only lost 6 games at home all season, just 3 in the last 3 months but for what ever reason have had a tough time beating the lower tier teams this year.

 

The Hounds limp into town 2-6-2 in their last 10 but are a respectable 10-10-0-2 on the road this year, but will have to travel up from Nipawin for Saturday. If the Bombers can pounce on them early , they could make it a long night for Notre Dame.

 

Flin Flon are 6-4 in their last 10 and are 3-2 in the month of February and seem to be running into a lot of hot goalies lately. Wins at this time of year are always tough to get,  as the Bombers are finding out with desperate teams like Yorkton and Melville on the last road trip.

 

Expect a loud playoff atmosphere at the Forum, the Bombers not only need a win to keep a top the standings but would like nothing better to topple the Hounds with a little pay back for last spring.

 

No matter what go's down you will have the best seat in the house with all the action on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com including the Murray GM Coach's Show at 7:15 and drop of the puck at 7:30.

In what has to be described as a very disappointing season, the Norman Northstars will play their final 2 games of the year this weekend in Thompson when they host the Interlake Lightning.

 

Norman who are 3-37-0-2 on the season have not won since November the 28th, when they beat Kenora 8-5.

 

Interlake is not much better as they come up North with a record of: 8-34.

 

Interlake won the two previous meetings 4-3 on October the 4th and 7-2 on October the 25th.

 

Game times are Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday 1:30 at the CA Nesbitt Arena in Thompson.

The Norman Bantam  AAA  Wolves played in Flin Flon for the last time this season dropping a pair of games to the Yellowhead Chiefs at the Sportex this past weekend.

 

Yellowhead won Saturday 6-2 and followed that up with a convincing 12-0 win on Sunday.

The Norman Midget Female AAA Wild dropped all 3 games on the road this weekend losing to Central Plains 5-0 on Friday, 4-0 to Pembina Valley on Saturday and 4-2 to Interlake Sunday. Flin Flon's Indra Wood had one of the two goals.

The Melfort Mustangs are starting to get on a roll, and went into Flin Flon last night and picked up their 5th straight win and doubled up on the Flin Flon Bombers 4-2.

 

Dakota Boutin picked up the only goal in the first period, when he gobbled up a loose puck at his own blue line and raced down the ice to beat Zac Robidoux on a short handed break away to put Melfort up 1-0 after 1.

 

The Mustangs would add to their lead when they scored 2 more in the second on goals from Hanson and Warkentine to put Melfort up 3-0 after 2.

 

Flin Flon came out very strong in the third and got rewarded with a goal from Tyson Empey just 54 seconds in. The Bomber captain was able to grab a rebound off the boards behind the Mustang net and caught Richard Palmer, who was on the other side of the net.

 

The Bombers kept scratching and managed to get one more past Palmer with only 18 seconds left in the game when Shumlanski banged home his 10th of the season.

 

Right off the following face off, the Bombers got in deep and looked like they may tie it up, but veteran Justin Boyer was able to get hold of a loose puck and he shot it into the empty net for Melfort's 4th goal which sealed the deal.

 

Flin Flon loses at the Whitney Forum for just the third time since November the 27th, despite doubling the Mustangs in shots 50-29.

 

Richard Palmer was incredible all night and make no mistake about it, he was the difference in the game.

 

The Bombers have been running into a lot of hot goalies lately and have played well enough to win their last 3 including a tough 3-2 loss in Yorkton Tuesday.

 

After Saturday's set back the Bombers find themselves 7 points behind Melfort for first in the Sherwood, and just 1 point up on Nipawin for second. Estevan did the Bombers a favour beating the Hawks 5-3 on Saturday.

 

Nipawin will have a chance to leap frog the Bombers, as they wrap up a 3 game road trip in Notre Dame on Sunday.

 

Flin Flon has 7 games remaining in the season including 4 more at the Whitney Forum, and will enjoy a 6 day break before hosting Notre Dame on Saturday February the 20th.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire Bomber organization for allowing me to be part of this great franchise the last 20 years and really appreciate their efforts in honoring me last night for my 1000th broadcast.

 

I have love'd every minute of it and would also like to thank all the fellow broadcaster's, coach's and teams  in our league and all the wonderful friends I have met along the way.

 

You all mean the world to me and from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU for sharing this great moment with me.

 

Look forward to seeing you at more rinks throughout 2016.

The Norman Northstars dropped 3 more games on the road this past weekend, and will wrap up their season without a single win on the road this year.

 

Norman dropped a pair of games to Pembina Valley 6-2 and 10-3 and also lost to the Winnipeg Wild 7-3.

 

Flin Flon's Tristan Galarneau did have 2 assists in the 3 games and Jeremy Dutcawich was very busy stopping 37 out of 47 shots in the second game against Pembina Valley.

 

Norman's overall record will slip to 3-35-0-2 and they will wrap up their season with 4 straight at home including a pair against Eastman this weekend.

 

Eastman has not lost a game in regulation this season.

After dropping 2 out of their last 3 games, the Flin Flon Bombers responded with back to back home wins over Humboldt and Kindersley.

 

Flin Flon took it to the Broncos 8-2 on Friday on the strength of the 4th line who combined for 12 points, 4 from Mich Foyle alone.

 

This was a big win for the Bombers,  as the Broncos have given them a lot of trouble this season. One of Humboldt's 2  road wins came at the expense of the Bombers earlier in the year and the season series ends 2-2.

 

The Bombers took over right from where they left off on Friday and doubled Kindersley 6-3 on Saturday.

 

Joel Kocur did a lot of the damage picking up the hat- trick to give him 33 goals on the season. Other goals came from Zimmer( 6), St.Onge (8) and Switzer (31).

 

Kocur's 33 goals have him ranked third in the league behind the Battleford's Leonenko who has 36, and Melfort's Travis Mayan who leads the league with 42.

 

Flin Flon built a 5-1 lead early in the third on Kindersley Saturday before Dexter Bricker decided to take a couple cheap shots on some Bomber players.  Adam Wilson responded on behalf of his team only to have Bricker back off and want no part of dropping his mitts.

 

This did lead to a  9 minute powerplay for Kindersley in which they did score a couple of power play goals to get back in the game 5-3, before the Bombers scored a late empty net goal to pick up their 29th victory of the season.

 

Brenden Newton was solid again stopping 33 out of 36 shots for his 13th win of the season. The most recent SJHL Rookie Of The Month is ranked third amongst SJHL goalies with a gaa of .240 and save % of .925.

 

After the weekend Flin Flon is 29-15-0-4 and they have a real battle going with Nipawin for second in the Sherwood and fourth overall. The Bombers lead the Hawks by 1 point and both teams have played 48 games. They will only play 1 more time this season and that is the last game of the season in Flin Flon March the 8th.

 

Wouldn't that be something if that ends up being the deciding game for home ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs.

 

Melfort seem to be back on track and have reeled off 4 straight wins to stay 7 points up on Flin Flon for first in the division.

 

The Bombers hit the road for 2 games Tuesday and Wednesday in Yorkton and Melville and once again they will be facing 2 desperate hockey teams.

 

Yorkton holds the final overall playoff spot with 38 points, 8 up on Melville and 7 more than Humboldt, so a win over Flin Flon would go a long way.

 

No matter what go's down you will have the best seat in the house, with both games on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com. Join us both nights with the Murray GM Coach's Show at 7:15 and play by play at 7:30.

The Flin Flon Bombers will step back on the ice tonight after a 5 day break to face the Humboldt Broncos.

 

To say the Bronco's are a desperate team would be an under statement, as they trail the Yorkton Terriers by 7 points for the final overall playoff spot.

 

Both teams have 12 games remaining on the season, and you would have to think that Humboldt would have to win at least 8 of their final 12 and get some help. Both teams have tough schedules and Melville is also in the mix.

 

Yorkton is the only team out of the 3 over .500 in their last 10.

 

As for the Bombers they have dropped 2 out of their last 3, both 4-3 set backs to the Weyburn Red Wings who are very close to clinching the Viterra Division.

 

The Bombers did come from behind to beat Laronge in the shoot out last Saturday to give them 8 wins in their last 10.

 

Flin Flon did not make it easy as they were sluggish and didn't start skating til the third. Humboldt has given the Bombers problems  this season beating them 2 out of 3 meetings including a 4-3 win at the Whitney Forum September the 25th.

 

That was a big win for the Broncos who only have 1 other road win the entire season and are 2-20-1-0 on the road this year.

 

Flin Flon has only lost 1 home game since December and that was this past Friday against the Wings.

 

The Bombers continue to battle with Nipawin for second in the Sherwood and fourth overall, and come into tonight's game with 58 points, 1 less than the Hawks with a game in hand.

 

Flin Flon still feel they can catch Melfort and are 9 points behind the Mustangs with 3 games in hand.

 

Mike Reagan mentioned to me that he is concerned about tonight's game and points out when a team is really struggling on the road like the Broncos are, you know the law of averages is they are going to win some time and you don't want it to be you.

 

102.9 CFAR is the corporate sponsor for tonight and we are going to give you a chance to win an autographed game worn jersey just for coming to the rink.

 

We will have an on ice promotion in the second intermission, so save your tickets when you come through the door.

 

No broadcast tonight , we are back on the air tomorrow against Kindersley.

The Flin Flon Bombers got back on the winning track, coming from behind to beat the Laronge Ice Wolves 3-2 in OT Saturday.

 

Weyburn handed the Bombers their second straight loss 4-3 Friday to the dismay of the 1,700 plus in attendance for Hockey Night In The North.

 

Again a big thanks to Hudbay, The City Of Flin Flon, Town Of Creighton and the Village Of Denare Beach for bringing this great event to our communities and giving everyone a chance to come to the game for free.

 

After the excitement from  the night before the Bombers had to deal with something they hadn't faced since mid November and that was a 2 game losing streak. I thought the Bombers looked sluggish and did not come out of the gate well.

 

Despite an average first period it was scoreless after 1. Tyson Empey opened the scoring at 5:47 of the second period when he scored  from a weird angle behind the Ice Wolf net. The Bomber lead would be short lived as Laronge would catch fire on the power play.

 

Mitch Foyle picked up a double minor for spearing and the Wolves struck twice on goals from Prouty and Painchaud to give Laronge a 2-1 lead after 2.

 

Flin Flon came out with a great third period out shooting the Wolves 17-8 and tied the game when Alex Smith collected his 26th of the year on a nice deek 4:30 into the final frame.

 

Kris Joyce was nothing short of spectacular yet again and was able to keep the Bombers at bay for the rest of the third and got his team to OT.

 

You make a mistake with any of the Bomber big gunners on the ice and they are going to make you pay. That is exactly what happened when Bryce Fiske blew a tire at his own blue line, and Joel Kocur grabbed the loose puck and broke down the ice and tucked it in,  five hole on Joyce for the win.

 

It was Kocur's 30th goal of the year and he is the fourth player in the league to hit 30. His team mate Brandon Switzer is one of the other 3.

 

Flin Flon out shot Laronge 55-29, and even though Brenden Newton wasn't as busy as Joyce, he did make the big saves when he had to. It may not have been pretty but good teams find ways to win ugly games.

 

The Bombers are 27-15-0-4 and remain 1 point up on Nipawin for second in the Sherwood and fourth overall. Flin Flon remains 7 points behind Melfort with 2 games in hand

 

Even more impressive is the Bombers are 10-3 against teams in the Sherwood Division.

 

Flin Flon will now get a 5 day break before hosting Humboldt and Kindersley this weekend, with 102.9 CFAR broadcasting Saturday's game.

It was a learning curve for both the SR Kodiak basketball teams this past weekend.

 

The Kodiak girls were in Meath Park and dropped all 3 games to Meath Park, Lake Lenore and North Battleford.

 

The Kodiak boys were in Tisdale and lost their 3 games to Shaunovon, Fort Qu'appelle  and Tisdale.

 

Both teams held their own against the best high school basketball teams in the province.

 

The Kodiak girls are in Kinistino this weekend and the boys are in Nipawin.
