One of the best games I have seen in recent memory in terms of back and forth action between the Flin Flon Bombers and Estevan Bruins Saturday night at the Whitney Forum.

 

Both teams went at each other hard and speed was the name of the game as the Bruins knocked off the Bombers 5-4 in the shootout to pick up their 13th win of the season.

 

Estevan opened up the scoring 4:25 into the second period when Edmands finished up a 3 on 1 on a helpless Robidoux. The Bombers responded when Lavallee fired his 5th of the year behind Nic Tallarico on the PP at 16:29.

 

Both teams would score one more each before the second  period was over. The Bombers would take their only lead of the game when Lesko scored his 8th of the season short handed, finishing a nice rush led by Nik Shumlanski who was flying all night.

 

The Bruins tied it on the same powerplay when Holt picked up his 14th of the season with only 52 seconds left in the period.

 

Lots of offense in the third with the Bruins picking up yet  another powerplay goal when Witzke scored just 1:20 into the final frame. Flin Flon again answered when Lesko got his second of the night and the Bomber's only even strength goal of the game, firing a perfect shot under the crossbar from a tough angle.

 

The Bruins did a good job of not allowing Flin Flon to get any momentum and seemed to stay a step ahead of them all game when McNeil would put Estevan ahead for the third time in the game 4-3 just over a minute into the final period.

 

Depite some injuries Saskatoon's Kristian St.Onge is having a nice season and he buried a nice rebound past the Bruin netminder Tallarico to tie the game once more at 4 a piece with  more than ten minutes remaining on the clock.

 

The rest of regulation and OT  would settle nothing as it would take a shoot-out to decide this one.

 

The first shooter from Estevan  Jason Miller was the only player to pot a goal as all three Bombers came up empty and the Bruins would celebrate their 13th win of the season and second over Flin Flon 5-4.

 

Final shots 49-36 in favour of Flin Flon with both teams going 2 for 5 on the powerplay.

 

 

It was another decent weekend for the Bombers who picked up 3 out of a possible 4 points with a 4-2 win over Weyburn Friday. Flin Flon fired 69 shots at the Wing net  which may be a modern day record for the Maroon and White.

 

Mike Reagan says he doesn't remember any other games like that and I was thinking you would probably have to go back to the late 70's early 80's,  when the Bombers were beating teams 25-0 in the Norman league for the last time Flin Flon had 69 shots in a game.

 

The Bombers record after the weekend sits at 8-6-2-2 and are tied with Nipawin for first in the Sherwood with 20 points, but the Hawks have 4 games in hand.

 

Flin Flon will now prepare for the rematch of this past  Spring's Canalta Cup Final when they face off against Melfort in a pair of games mid-week. The Mustangs come to the Whitney Forum for the first time this season Wednesday with the Bombers in Melfort Thursday.

 

Thursday's game will be on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com with the Murray GM Coach's Show at 8:15 and drop of the puck at 8:30 MB time.

After a 5 day break the Bombers will hit the ice for a pair of games this weekend against two of the league's premiere clubs in  Estevan and Weyburn.

 

The Wings are here tonight and bring a 11-5-0-1 record to town including two wins against the Bombers so far this year including a 4-3 win at the Showcase,  and the Wings shut them out in Weyburn 5-0 a couple of weeks ago.

 

Weyburn and Estevan are tied  for first in the Vittera Division with 23 points and this will be Weyburn's first game in Flin Flon since the famous moose leg incident from last spring.

 

A lot has changed since then,  including Head Coach Bryce Thoma leaving for the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL and assistant coach Wes Rudy taking over the reigns. Weyburn also shored up their goaltending  picking up Nathan Hargrave in a trade with Kindersley.

 

Hargrave has been outstanding picking up 9 wins to go with a gaa of 2.41 and a save % of .922

 

He is tough to beat and considered one of the best goalies in the league.

 

Estevan may be the big surprise so far this year after hosting the Western Canada Cup in the spring and it looked like the Bruins may have to do a major rebuild.

 

Nothing could be further from the truith as head coach  Chris Lewgood has built a nice team with his carry over players from last year and some top notch rookies who are finding the back of the net.

 

The Bruins are second in the league with goals for with  69 in 15 games and are on a roll winning 8 of their last 10 games.

 

Flin Flon took all 4 meetings between the two teams last season, but the Bruins beat the Bombers 6-4 in Estevan on October the 13th in their only meeting so far this season.

 

This could be a good weekend for the Bombers confidence wise if they could pick up a couple of wins against these elite clubs.

 

The Bombers are 7-6-2-1 and are battling with Nipawin for first place in the Sherwood Division. The Hawks lead the Bombers by 1 point with 3 games in hand.

 

Offense has dropped down this year with the Bombers 6th in the league in goals for with 46 in 16 games. Their goals against may be more of a concern giving up 54 in  16 games.

 

Since starting the year at 6-0-1, the Bombers have only managed 1 win in their last 9 games but are coming off a 3 point weekend against Kindersley.

 

No broadcast against Weyburn tonight but we are back on the air Saturday against the Bruins with the Murray GM Coach's Show at 7:15 and play by play at 7:30.

The Flin Flon Bombers snapped a 6 game winless streak with a 6-3 come from behind win over the Kindersley Klippers at the Whitney Forum on Friday night.

 

Trailing 3-1 in the second period the Bombers erupted for 5 goals enroute to their 7th win of the season.

 

The guys that the Bombers count on to score got the job done as Reitmeier led the way with a pair, with other goals coming from Zimmer, Lesko, Lanferman and Lavallee.

 

This was the Bombers  biggest offensive outburst of the season and was almost as many goals as they scored on their most recent southern road trip.

 

Final shots were 52-27 in favour of the Bombers with Flin Flon going 2 for 6 on the powerplay and Kindersley finished 1 for 5.

 

Flin Flon would try to take the momentum into Saturday but goals were a little more tough to come by.

 

Kindersley built up a quick 2-0 lead on goals from Bly and Young before the Bombers responded with a goal from Shumlanski early in the second period.

 

A late goal from Picket preserved the 2 goal lead for the Klippers after 2. Down 3-1 the Bombers scored a huge short handed goal just 1:03 into the third.

 

Recently acquired Eric Sinclair led a rush down the ice, broke in on goal and got a shot away on Klipper goaltender Justen Close. Close stopped Sinclair, bit Shumlanski picked up the rebound and fired it right into the middle of the net for his second of the game and 6th of the season.

 

The Bombers kept pressing and tied the game on a powerplay goal from Joseph Leonidas just 3 minutes later.

 

The score held up for the rest of the third period and went to OT.

 

Flin Flon had several great chances to end it but it was Kindersley's night. Binfet took a drop pass from Funk and beat a screened Brenden Newton 2:29 into the extra period to give the Klippers the 4-3 OT win.

 

Kindersley snapped a 4 game winless streak despite being outshot 60-34. After the weekend the Bombers are: 7-6-2-1 and have dropped to second in the Sherwood, 1 point behind Nipawin.

 

The Hawks are red hot winning 8 out of their last 10 games.

 

It was parents weekend and the Bombers held a nice ceremony to recognise the parent's and billet families before Saturday's game.

 

Next up for the Bombers will be a pair of games against Weyburn and Estevan this weekend at the Whitney Forum. 102.9 CFAR will have the Estevan broadcast on Saturday.

After being outscored 20-7 on the last road trip, the Flin Flon Bombers are looking forward to some home cooking as they will host the Kindersley Klippers in a pair of games this weekend at the Whitney Forum.

 

There was some doubt as to where the Bombers would be playing this weekend after the Whitney Forum roof was damaged earlier in the week due to heavy snow and freezing rain.

 

A big thanks to the construction crew for feverishly working hard to get the roof fixed for this weekend as the Whitney is back in business and open again today.

 

Flin Flon limps into action this weekend with only 1 point in their last 6 games but are still tied for first in the Sherwood Division with a record of 6-6-1-1 and tied with Nipawin. The Hawks have played 4 less games.

 

Kindersley is in the middle of a long road trip where they just dropped a 3-2 decision to Laronge on Wednesday to fall to 5-7 and are on the bottom of the Finning Division. The Klippers have to be careful, they can't afford to lose much more ground in the division which includes both Humboldt and Battleford.

 

Mike Reagan is trying to shake things up after acquiring all star defenseman Eric Sinclair out of Melville. Even though Sinclair was Millionaire property he never actually suited up and has been sitting home awaiting a trade the last few weeks.

 

Sinclair should be a difference maker right off the hop bringing his two Canalta Cup Championship rings from his days as a Melfort Mustang and is excited to end his career as a Bomber. He will be in the lineup tonight.

 

It is parents weekend and the Forum should be an electric atmosphere especially since it seems like an eternity since the Bombers played a home game. It's actually been 12 days.

 

Make sure you bring your radios and tell your friends and family to listen to 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com this Saturday as we hit the air waves at 7:15 with the Murray GM Coach's Show.

The Creighton Kodiaks travelled to Prince Albert to complete the final game of their Northern Saskatchewan football season on Wednesday.

 

Creighton was supposed to complete their schedule at home but there was to much damage to the Creighton field due to all the rain and snow.

 

The Kodiaks faced SMVS out of Laronge and picked up their first win of the year 45-6.

 

Bailey Eastman led the way throwing two touchdown passes and scoreing two more on the ground, while other touchdowns came from Linden Moore, Jordan Schanowski and Jaron McDermott.

 

Creighton also had three interceptions and three quaterback sacks as the defense really stepped up for the final game of the year.

 

The Kodiaks finish the season 1-3 while SMVS ends up 0-4. Neither team will quailify for the playoffs.

The Flin Flon Bombers have swung a deal to pick up 20 year old defenseman Eric Sinclair out of Melville.

 

Sinclair played a little more than two seasons for the Melfort Mustangs where he collected 60 points in 103 games including 10 points in 23 career playoff games.

 

The native of Kenora Ontario was  part of two Canalta Cup Championships with the Mustangs before being dealt to Mellville as part of the futures trade that brought Kirk Bear and Carter Hanson to Melfort last season.

 

 

Sinclair held out and was dealt to the Bombers today for future considerations.

 

 

This is what Head Coach and GM Mike Reagan had to say about the trade. " This is a trade that has been in the works for over a month. Devon had to jump through some hoops with the situation between them and Melfort and we have been on the sidelines watching to see what the results would be. He is a guy we targeted early and I think he is the best defenseman in the league. We lost a very good d-man in Curtis Roach last year and we needed to replace him in order to make another serious run."

 

Reagan also mentioned that due to the damage of the Whitney Forum's roof that the team has been practising at the Sportex and if the damage can not be repaired in time for Friday they will play both their games against Kindersley at the Sportex this weekend.

 

Keep on listening to 102.9 CFAR for details as they are made available.

It was a goaltending performance for the ages.

 

Allan Knoli out of Winnipeg stopped 68 out of 73 shots and was the biggest reason why Norman picked up their first point of the season losing to the tough Winnipeg Wild 6-5 in a shoot out Saturday night in Thompson.

 

Norman battled all night and tied the game with only 47 seconds remaining in the third period to get the game to OT.

 

The extra 5 minute session settled nothing and the game was decided in the shootout, with the Wild scoring twice to win it.

 

Flin Flon's Ethan Stuckless continued his good season scoring a pair of goals.

 

Norman lost 5-0 on Sunday.

 

After the weekend the Northstars record sits at: 0-6-0-1 and will hit the road for 4 games starting Thursday in Pembina Valley.

The Hapnot Kings and Queens were in Winkler this past weekend for Soccer Provincials. Both teams had impressive weekends.

 

 

The Queens knocked off Dauphin and Winkler to make the semi final before losing to the no.2 team in the province Minnedosa.

 

The Queens tried to play through some injuries and fatigue caught up to them losing to Dauphin in the rematch 5-1 in the Consolation final.

 

The Kings which got the final wild card pulled the upset and beat Birtle in their first game 6-1. The Kings then lost lost a tight game to the no.1 team in Manitoba Garden Valley 3-0.

 

The Kings then lost the semi-final to no.4 ranked Macgregor 4-0.

 

This ends a great season for this soccer program which saw the Queens finish the season at 14-2 and pick up their 11th straight Zone title.

 

The Kings continued to improve all year with a young team and they were able to qualify for Provincials for the 8th time in 9 years.

 

Both these teams should be strong for many years to come.

The Creighton Kodiaks 6 man football team finally got to play a football game yesterday in Laronge.

 

The Kodiaks last two games were postboned due to an unusual amount of snow in early October. Creighton was supposed to host a game yesterday, but due to the condition of the Creighton field travelled to Laronge  instead.

 

Creighton suited up against one of the top teams in their division the Churchill Chargers and had their best effort of the season.

 

Churchill had scored well over 200 points in their previous 3 games and the Kodiaks battled them right to the end.

 

 

The Chargers took the game 38-18, but the Kodiaks had plenty of opportunities to take this game yesterday.

 

The offensive highlights included a 50 yard run from Bailey Eastman and  two touchdown runs of 1 and 5 yards for Jordan Schanowski.

 

Creighton will drop to 0-3 on the season and will play one more home game next Wednesday when they host SMVS out of Laronge at 3 PM.

 

Churchill finishes the regular season at 3-1.

The Norman Northstars dropped both games to the Eastman Selects in Thompson this past weekend.

 

Eastman took it to Norman 9-0 Saturday and 6-2 on Sunday.

 

One of the bright spots was Flin Flon's Ethan Stuckless who had a goal and an assist in a losing cause on Sunday.

 

Norman's overall record slips to 0-5. Things do not get any easier with the no.1 team in the league, the Winnipeg Wild heading to Thompson for a pair of games this weekend.

Due to the weather, there are some changes to the Creighton Kodiak football schedule for tonight.

 

On the original schedule the Kodiaks were supposed to host the SMVS Huskies, but due to all the snow on the Creighton field , the Kodiaks will travel to Laronge instead.

 

 

The Kodiaks will face the Churchill Chargers, who they were supposed to play last week, but that was postponed due to weather.

 

Kickoff in Laronge is 1PM Sask time, and the Chargers are 2-1 while the Kodiaks are 0-2.

 

There is no word yet on when the Kodiaks will make up their game against SMVS.

Full marks to the Battleford Stars for coming into the Whitney Forum and grabbing 4 points this weekend.

 

It is not easy to win one game at the Whitney Forum let alone two, but the Stars were a determined group that did just that.

 

Battleford built up a 2-0 lead on Friday with  goals from Kleiboer and Lamb in the first period,  before the Bombers tied it with a powerplay goal from Lesko and a nice effort from Lavallee in the second.

 

It looked like it may stay even heading into the third period but Horn answered Lavallee's goal just 15 seconds after the Bomber veteran tied it to give the Stars a 3-2 lead after 2.

 

Ben Lafermann would once again get the Bombers even when he fired a point shot through a crowd at 8:41 of the final stanza, which rounded out the scoring in regulation.

 

Flin Flon played well but returning goalie Taryn Kotchorek was on his game making some great saves to get the game to OT.

 

I honestly thought this game would end 3 on 3 and then the Bombers were rewarded a powerplay and I thought this could be their night, but Kotchorek wouldn't break.

 

So,  shootout here we come and both goalies played strong, with just one shooter able to find the back of the net and that was Star captain Kendall Fransoo lifting a shot just under the bar on Zac Robidoux.

 

This sent Battleford into a frenzy as they celebrated their 7th win of the season 4-3 in the shoot out.

 

Final shots were Battleford 45 and Flin Flon 44.

 

The North Stars carried the momentum into the next game,  and played a perfect road game keeping most of the Bomber shots to the outside and limiting Flin Flon's chances en route to the 3-0 win Saturday.

 

Connor Sych scored two powerplay goals late in the second period on a 5 minute major assessed to Greyson Reitmeier for boarding. I have called a lot of games in my career and I  don't remember seeing a player ejected for boarding before.

 

The longer you are around, you eventually to get to see everything.

 

For the second straight night the Bombers were down coming out for the third period, but this time the deficit was 2 goals not 1.

 

Mike Reagan did mix and match the lines, but they couldn't get any pucks past Joel Grybowski, who stopped all 27 shots fired in his direction for his 4th straight win. The Stars added an empty net goal from Nachtegaele.

 

Brenden Newton was back in net for Flin Flon and he stopped 33 out of 35 shots and I thought he  did a nice job on not giving up any rebounds and seemed pretty poised.

 

After the weekend the Bomber record stands at: 6-2-1-1, first in the Sherwood, 4 points up on Nipawin  but the Hawks have two games in hand.

 

Battleford is 8-3 and trail first place Humboldt by just one point and are an impressive 6-1 on the road.

 

This was the first meeting between these two teams since the Bombers eliminated the Stars from the playoffs in 5 games earlier in the Spring.

 

A big test is coming up for Flin Flon who will play 4 games in 5 nights starting in Humboldt Wednesday. The Broncos are a league best 6-0 at home, but it was in Humboldt where the Bombers turned their season around last year. Flin Flon is confident they can win there.

 

Other stops include Estevan, Weyburn and Notre Dame. No broadcasts of these games and we won't be back on the air til Saturday October the 22nd at home against Kindersley.

After a 6 day break the Flin Flon Bombers will welcome the Battleford Stars to town for a pair of games this weekend.

 

I know a number of fans are excited about getting back to the rink to watch some hockey this weekend and playing the Battlefords makes it that much sweeter.

 

The North Stars are one of the Bomber's best rivalries and I don't know if I can remember too many bad games between these two teams.

 

This will be the first meeting since their playoff matchup  in the spring when Rylee Zimmer ended the Star's season with his dramatic double over time goal in game 5 of the SJHL semi final.

 

Both teams are near the top of the standings with Battleford coming in with a record of 6-3. Battleford also sports the league's best road record at 4-1.

 

The Bombers have only lost 1 game in regulation and have a record of 6-1-1 and lead Nipawin by 3 points for top spot in the Sherwood Division. Flin Flon is second overall, 3 points behind first place Humboldt and 1 point up on Battleford.

 

Not only did the Bombers take the SJHL semi final against the Stars, they also beat them 4 out of 6 in the regular season last year  including all three at the Whitney Forum.

 

Battleford is led offensively by Reed Delainey and Connor Logan who have combined for 22 points. Delainey should be one of the league's top point getters and was injured for their playoff series against Flin Flon in the spring.

 

Flin Flon continues to get goals from Dondre Watson who has 9 which has him tied with the Broncos Van Os-Shaw for the league lead. The strange stat is he doesn't have a single assist yet, but that should change as he has to be one of the most exciting players to hit this league in a long time.

 

Congratulations to Bomber goaltender Zac Robidoux and defenseman Joseph Leonidas on being chosen SJHL players of the week. Both these guys had solid weeks and their contibutions are one of the reasons the Bombers are off to a great start.

 

Game time is 7:30 tonight and tomorrow and 102.9 CFAR will have the broadcast Saturday night with the Murray GM Coach's Show at 7:15, and play by play at 7:30.

The Creighton Kodiak 6 man football team after a 12 day rest will hit the road tomorrow looking for their first win of the season.

 

The Kodiaks are 0-2 after dropping their last game at home to Cumberland House 57-26 September the 22nd.

 

Creighton will play one of the top teams in their division,  Churchill out of Laronge who also lost their last game to Cumberland House 48-32 September the 29th.

 

Churchill is 1-2 on the season and have a great offense capable of putting up a lot of points. Churchill has scored 193 points in 3 games.

 

Creighton absolutely has to have this game tomorrow if they are going to have any chance of making the playoffs.

It was a tough way for the Norman Northstars to kick off the Manitoba Midget AAA hockey season this past weekend.

 

Norman lost 3-0 to Pembina Valley yesterday and also dropped a 9-1 decision to the Winnipeg Thrashers and a 9-3 setback against Central Plains.

 

Flin Flon's Ethan Stuckless did score one of Norman's 4 goals on the weekend.

 

The Northstars will play at home for the first time this year hosting Eastman in a pair of games Saturday and Sunday in Thompson.

The Flin Flon Bombers electrifying start to the season continued on the weekend against the Melville Millionaires sweeping both games at the Whitney Forum.

 

Flin Flon wrapped up September with a 3-1 win on Friday with goals from Watson his league leading 9th, Lesko his 4th and Brody Madarash picked up his first ever SJHL goal.

 

The Bombers finish September with a record of: 5-1-1, pretty good when you consider they only had 1 point in all of September last year.

 

They took over right where they left off to start October blanking the Mills 2-0 on Saturday.

 

Greyson Reitmeier picked a good time to score his first of the season when he picked up a powerplay goal mid way through the first period streaking in on Brandon Wells and poking a puck under his right pad.

 

That stood as the game winner with Nik Shumlanski scoring an insurance goal late in the second period to make the final 2-0.

 

Zac Robidoux was between the pipes for both Bomber victories and made 22 saves to collect his first shut out of the season. He had 5 last year to set a new Bomber record.

 

Robidoux is one of the reasons Flin Flon has had a great start to the season going 3-0 to go along with a GAA of 1.33 and a save % of .957.

 

After the weekend the Bombers are 6-1-1 and lead the Sherwood Division by 3 points over Nipawin who picked up their 4th straight win last night.

 

Flin Flon is second overall and trail the rejuvinated Humboldt Broncos by just 1 point. Both teams have played 8 games.

 

Next up for the Bombers will be a real test as they get set to host the Battleford Stars in a pair of games Friday and Saturday. Enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend with two quality hockey teams and this will also be their first meeting since the Bombers beat them in 5 games to eliminate the Stars from the playoffs last spring.

 

No broadcast Friday, we hit the air waves Saturday with the Murray GM Coach's Show at 7:15, play by play at 7:30.
