Bombers Clip Wings

 

Brandson Hein continued his October to remember as the Flin Flon Bombers rolled over the Weyburn Red Wings 7-4 on Friday night.

 

Hein potted his second hat trick of the season,  scoring his 19th,20th and 21st of the year  and continues to lead the league in most offensive categories including goals.

 

Vincent Nardone added a pair,  his 9th and 10th with singles coming from Collin(7) and Hooper (7).

 

Weyburn goal scorers were: Plett a pair for his first and second, Kowalski(8) and Schwean(1).

 

The Bomber powerplay was on fire going 4 for 8 and have the fourth best powerplay in the league at 22.9 %.

 

Weyburn had a good night with the extra attacker going 2 for 5.

 

Pierce Diamond was back between the pipes for the first time in two weeks and he played very well stopping 31 out of 35 shots. Diamond has found a groove and has picked up 8 out of the 11 Bomber victories this season.

 

Flin Flon was able to get to Riley Lamb and forced him from the game in the second period when he gave up 5 goals on 20 shots. In Lamb's defense,  I thought Weyburn played pretty bad defensively and coughed up the puck in their own ende several times.

 

Cody Levesque came in relief and played reasonably well stopping 18 out of 20.

 

The Bombers improve to 11-5-0-2 and are tied with Nipawin for first place in the Sherwood Division with 24 points. That is also good for second overall, 1 point behind Kindersley.

 

Weyburn is in a funk dropping to 5-10-2 and are winless in their last 10 games.

 

Flin Flon will enjoy 5 days off before travelling to Melfort this Thursday. This will be the first meeting of the season between these two Sherwood Division rivals who are expected to be the top two clubs in the division this year.

 

Melfort is 10-5-1 and are 6-1 at the Northern Lights Palace. 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com will broadcast this game with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 8:15 MB time.

Bombers Double The Bruins

 

The Flin Flon Bombers got back in the win column after a solid 4-2 win against the Estevan Bruins last night at the Whitney Forum.

 

The Bombers jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one,  on goals from new comer Caleb Franklin and Crystopher Collin who seems to be getting into an offensive groove after a bit of a slow start  returning from major junior in Quebec.

 

Estevan got the only goal in the second when Cunningham beat Jacob Delorme late in the frame.

 

It looked like it could be another third period collapse, when Estevan came out flying in the third and got to within one when high flying forward Michael McChesney made it 3 to 2 with just under 3 minutes remaining in regulation.

 

Flin Flon didn't fold the tent this time and got a big insurance goal from Brandson Hein, who restored the two goal lead, just over a minute later to answer McChesney's goal. Hein continues to pile up the goals with his league leading 18th.

 

The Bombers skated to the 4-2 win and have beaten the struggling Bruins in both their meetings so far this season.

 

I thought it was a great goaltending battle and Jacob Delorme was dynamite in stopping 39 out of 42 Bruin shots. Not to be out done,  was Grant Boldt at the other end of the ice stopping 32 out of 36.

 

Specialty teams saw the Bombers go 1 for 3 on the PP, while the Bruins were 0 for 2.

 

Flin Flon will regain first place in the Sherwood Division at 10-5-0-2, 2 points up on the Hawks who have two games in hand.

 

Estevan slips to 7-9 and remain 3 points behind the Yorkton Terriers in the Viterra Division.

 

Next up for the Bombers will be the Weyburn Red Wings who will be in town tomorrow for a 7:30 start.

 

You can catch all the action on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10.

Ready For The Bruins

   

 

The Flin Flon Bombers will try to shake off a 5-4 set back to the Yorkton Terriers Saturday, when they return to the ice to face the Estevan Bruins tonight at the Whitney Forum.

 

This will be the team's  second meeting of the season with the Bombers winning convincingly at Affinity Place 7 to 2 , just 10 days ago.

 

Estevan is coming into tonight's game with a loss in Nipawin last night where they were shut out 2 to 0. Saying that the Bruins are playing better hockey since picking up goaltender  Grant Boldt from the US.

 

Boldt just picked up the SJHL Goalie Of The Week and has some pretty decent numbers since taking over the crease,  including a 2-3 record with a very good save percentage at .930 and GAA of 2.01.

 

Estevan picked by many as one of the favorites this season, is a disappointing 7 and 8 so far and sit second in the Viterra Division.

 

The Bombers looked like they found their groove picking up 7 out of a possible 8 points on their Southern road swing but had a tough time with Yorkton this past weekend.

 

Flin Flon almost blew a 5 goal lead on Friday and did cough up a 2 goal lead on Saturday. The Maroon and White still find themselves in a good spot at 9-5-0-2 and are tied with Nipawin for first place in the Sherwood Division.

 

Brandson Hein continues to lead the way with MVP numbers as he is first in points with 30, goals-17, and short handed goals with 3.

 

Offense is not a problem as the Bombers have four players in the top ten in league scoring with Marchi in fourth spot with 24, Hooper fifth with 23 and Moretz sixth with 21 points.

 

Flin Flon as a team lead the league with 72 goals scored in just 16 games. Their big challenge will be to keep the puck out of their net as they have surrendered 51 which has them ranked 7th overall.

 

Game time is 7:30 tonight and we will not have the broadcast. We are back on the air Friday against Weyburn with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 and drop of the puck at 7:30.

Northstars Hit The Win Column

The Norman Northstars have their first win of the season after knocking off the Central Plains Capitals 5 to 2 to kick off their road trip Friday night.

 

Richard Ducharme out of Norway House led the way with a hat-trick with Flin Flon's Morgan Daneliuk added one assist.

 

Unfortunately Norman couldn't sustain the momentum and dropped their next two games to Southwest 6 to 3 and 8 to 2 to Parkland.

 

Jordan Pfoh added two assists.

 

The Northstar record sits at 1-9 and they return home to face the Winnipeg Thrashers this weekend.

In the final the Kodiaks came out strong winning the first set against Spiritwood, before dropping the next two to finish second. Head Coach Jen Johnsgaard was very pleased with how her team performed.

Terriers Mount Third Period Come Back

 

It was the type of hockey everybody was expecting to see this weekend with no shortage of goals between the Yorkton Terriers and Flin Flon Bombers.

 

Flin Flon won a wild one, 7 to 5 on Friday almost blowing a 7-2 lead going into the third period. Yorkton made things very interesting including hitting three goal posts in the final frame.

 

Brandson Hein had another good night adding two more goals to give him a league leading 15 on the season.

 

The Bombers felt good going into the rematch on Saturday but this time could not hold on to a two goal lead going into the third period.

 

 

Flin Flon led 3 to 1 entering the third on goals from Hein(16), McKenzie (4) and Marchi (12) before the game would take a dramatic change.

 

The Terriers fired 21 shots at the Bomber net,  scoring four times before the mid way point of the period and were able to skate to a 5-4 victory.

 

Cody Bruchkowski led the way with a pair, his 6th and 7th of the year with other goals from Mullaney(1) and Hobbs(2). Legien scored his 14th back in the second.

 

Local product Jeremy Dutcawich started his first ever SJHL regular season game and played extremely well stopping 40 out of 45 Yorkton shots. I thought he made a number of big saves especially in the first period and looked poised and moved very well.

 

Ryan Oulette started just his fourth game of the year and made the saves he had to make in turning aside 26 out of 30 Bomber shots.

 

Specialty teams were big for both teams with the Bombers going 4 for 8 on the PP, while the Terriers were 2 for 8.

 

It was parents weekend and it was nice to see that almost all of the parents made it up North to cheer on their sons decked out in their Bomber gear and enjoying the best atmosphere in the league at the Whitney Forum.

 

Lsst night's loss stopped the Bombers point streak of at least 1 point in the last 6 games, but they still sit first in the Sherwood Division at 9-5-0-2. They have dropped to third overall with Kindersley and Humboldt both winning last night.

 

Yorkton continues to lead the Viterra Division at 8-5-1, with a 3 point lead on Estevan.

 

Flin Flon will continue their home stand this week with two games against Estevan on Wednesday and Weyburn on Friday. The Bruins have reeled off three straight wins while the Wings have lost six in a row.

 

102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com will have Friday's game including the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 and drop of the puck at 7:30.

What A Road Trip

It is one of the most successful road trips down south in recent memory for the Flin Flon Bombers who came home with 7 out of a possible 8 points, after a 6-2 win in Estevan last night.

 

Crystopher Collin led the way with a pair of goals his third and fourth of the season. Other goal scorer's included Klymchuk(3),Hein (13),Hooper(5)and McKenzie(2).

 

Jacob Delorme got the start with Pierce Diamond getting suspended for his part in a line brawl the night before. Delorme was fantastik picking up his first SJHL victory in stopping 36 out of 38 Estevan shots.

 

Tristan DeRoose and Eddie Gallagher replied for the Bruins with Jake Anthony getting the start in goal giving up 5 goals on 25 shots. He was pulled early in the third period for Grant Boldt who stopped all 7 shots he faced.

 

Both teams got plenty of powerplay chances with the Bombers going 1 for 8 and the Bruins finished up 0 for 6.

 

Mike Reagan mentioned on last night's CFAR Post Game Show this was the most successful southern road swing he remembers in the last 13 seasons coaching the club.

 

The trip began with a 3-2 SO loss to Humboldt before convincing wins over Notre Dame 4-1, 6-3 over Weyburn and last night's 6-2 victory over Estevan.

 

The Bombers have also taken over sole possesion of first place in the Sherwood Division with a record of: 8-4-0-2. Flin Flon leads Melfort by 3 points and Nipawin by 4, but both teams have 3 games in hand.

 

Next up will be the much improvedYorkton Terriers who come to the Whitney Forum for a pair of games this weekend.

 

Yorkton is first place in their division with a record of 6-4-1 and have some very good offensive players. This should be a very entertaining matchup this weekend as these are two of the top offensive teams in the league.

 

The Bombers sit first in goals for, with 61 in 14 games, while Yorkton is second with 46 goals in 11 games.

 

They met at the Showcase in Warman a few weeks back with the Terriers winning a wild one 6-5. We will have Saturday's game on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

Hein And Moretz Lead The Way

Brandson Hein continues to give SJHL goaltenders fits, with another solid performance last night at the Duncan McNeill Arena in Wicox.

 

It only took Hein over 4 minutes into the opening period to net his league leading 12th of the season short handed. It was also his league leading third short handed goal.

 

Hein would also add a couple of assists for a three point night in helping the Bombers to a much needed 4-1 victory over the Notre Dame Hounds.

 

Caleb Moretz added his 11th, with rookie Billy Klymchuk picking up his 2nd and Calvon Boots scoring his  first, which was the first goal scored by a Bomber d-man this year.

 

Specialty teams were big for Flin Flon who added a couple of powerplay goals to go along with their short handed goal. Pierce Diamond picked up his 6th win of the season, stopping 20 out of 21 shots.

 

Curtis Wiebe was the only Hound to score and Andrew Henderson took the loss stopping 21 out of 25 shots.

Broncos Slip Past Bombers

The Flin Flon Bombers picked up a valuable point in kicking off a 4 game in 5 night road trip last night in Humboldt, dropping a 3-2 game in the shoot out to the Broncos.

 

The Bombers overcame a two goal deficit when Brandson Hein scored his team leading 11th of the season on the powerplay midway through the second period. Caleb Moretz continued his electric play so far this year when he tied the game with a short handed goal late in the third.

 

OT would settle nothing so Flin Flon would go to the shootout for their second straight game. The Bronco's Owen Guenter was the only player to find the back of the net with Collin, Moretz and Boots all coming up empty for the Bombers with their chances.

 

The Broncos out shot the Bombers 37-27 while Flin Flon went 1 for 5 on the PP, and Humboldt went 0 for 5.

 

Pierce Diamond continued his fine play between the pipes stopping 34 shots.

 

With last night's point, the Bombers were able to leap frog Melfort for second in the Sherwood Division with 12 points. The Mustangs do have two games in hand.

 

The road trip will continue tonight in Notre Dame with the Hounds sitting fourth in the Global Ag Risk Solutions Division at 3-6. Game time is 9pm MB time.

Klippers Win In A Shoot- Out

 

It was a good Thanksgiving weekend for the Kindersley Klippers who came into Flin Flon and took 4 points including a 2-1 shoot out win last night, after a 4-2 win on Friday.

 

The Klippers played a perfect style on the road keeping it simple and keeping the Bomber top offensive threats at bay with a relentless fore check.

 

Both goalies stole the show with Pierce Diamond allowing just the one goal in regulation when Clay Keeley snuck a shot through from the blue line with lots of traffic in front of the Bomber net. I don't think Diamond saw it.

 

This was a powerplay goal with just over 4 minutes remaining in the second period.

 

 

Flin Flon would tie it on a powerplay goal of their own, when Crystopher Collin would tap a rebound past Justin Close for his second in as many nights at 13:34 of the third.

 

Both goalies made a lot of big saves to keep the game tied through regulation including Pierce Diamond with perhaps the save of the year, sliding across the crease to make an unbelievable glove save on Caden Benson.

 

The whole building thought it was in, including me. One of the best saves I have seen in a long time.

 

The game was tied at one going into OT, and the Bombers looked like they caught a break getting a powerplay with just under 2 minutes remaining in the extra period.

 

Flin Flon cycled the puck well but could not get another puck past Close who was rock solid for the second straight night.

 

So this one would have to be decided in the Shoot out, which was the first one this season for both teams.

 

Kindersley put it away with both Devon Cyr and Caden Benson scoring on their oppurtunities, while Close stopped both Dawson McKenzie and Caleb Moretz.

 

Final shots through OT were 30-28 in favour of Flin Flon. Powerplays  saw the Bombers go 1 for 7 while the Klippers were 1 for 4.

 

 

After a disappointing weekend, Flin Flon's record will dip to 5-4-0-1, which has them tied with Melfort for second in the Sherwood Division with 11 points. Kindersley sits second in the Global Ag Risks Solution Division at 7-3, just 1 point behind the Humboldt Broncos.

 

 

The Bombers hit the road for 4 games in 5 nights, starting Wednesday In Humboldt, Thursday in Notre Dame before wrapping up in Weyburn Saturday and Estevan Sunday.

 

You can catch Saturday and Sunday's games on 102,9 CFAR and flinflononline.com. Saturdy we hit the air at 8:15 with the Great North GM Coach's Show, and 6:45 on Sunday.

Murray also thanked Sandy Doran who is retiring after 7 years running the kitchen and mentioned that she will definately be missed. Jim Glynn was also thanked for his dedication and many years of service.

 

Memberships were up for the first time in many years with 323 the official count.

 

This Friday will be the last day on the course and Brett the grounds keeper said they will start their preparation for winter maintenance on Saturday.

 

One of the challenges and plan for moving forward will be to get more Junior golfers coming out to hopefully improve the numbers and enjoy the course.

Kings And Queens Zone Soccer Results

The Hapnot Kings and Queens were both in Thompson over the weekend trying to bring home a couple of banners in soccer.

 

Things started well for the Queens who beat OCN 3-0, then beat Cross Lake 5-0 to get to the final. It was the matchup that everyone expected to see as Hapnot would play Thompson, and RD Parker came out on top 1-0 in a very exciting final.

 

The Kings also played well beating Easterville 14-0, lost to OCN 3-2, but rebounded to beat Moose Lake 2-1. Unfortunately the Kings did not qualify for the finals losing out on points for and against.

 

Thompson also won the Boy's final 5-1 over OCN.

 

The future looks very good for the Hapnot soccer program as both teams will carry over a number of players for next year's teams.
