That put them in the final against Virdon and they would end up losing to a very good Virdon team. The Kings will host Zones in two weeks time at Hapnot.

Wild Weekend At The Forum

It was another terrific weekend of hockey between the two  SJHL power houses as the Flin Flon Bombers and Battleford Stars split the weekend series at the Whitney Forum.

 

On Friday, the Bombers pulled out the 5 to 3 win. The Bombers saw a two goal lead disappear as the Stars were able to tie the game mid way through the third.

 

If it wasn't  for Harmon Laser Hume and an incredible save in a goal line scramble, Flin Flon may not have pulled out Friday's win. The Bombers rode the momentum and got a short handed goal from Alexi Sylvestre which proved to be the game winner.

 

Jacob Vockler added a goal with less than a minute left for a little extra insurance. The other Bomber goals came from Carter Anderson who scored a pair including his 34th and 35th and the home town captain Justin Lies who netted his 36th.

 

The Battleford goals came from Jordan Grill, Bradley Blake and Hunter Burgeson. Harmon Laser Hume out duelled Matthew MacArthur and made 38 saves for his league leading 26th win of the year.

 

Saturday was even more explosive and the Stars wouldn't be denied this night and picked up a wild 8 to 6 win.

 

The Stars came out to play and scored two quick goals before the game was even 5 minutes old courtesy of Evan Waldie and SJHL leading scorer Kian Bell.

 

This game had all kinds of ebb and flows and momentum shifts throughout the entire game and was the most exciting game that I have personally witnessed in a long time.

 

Bomber captain, Justin Lies was able to convert on the powerplay with a pefect shot top corner on Stars netminder Logan Cunningham to cut the deficit to 2-1 after 1.

 

The Stars kept coming and restored the two goal lead when Jackson Allan scored a powerplay goal of his own.

 

Flin Flon looked like they might be in business when they scored 4 of the next 5 including two more powerplay goals from Jacob Vockler and Noah Houle. Alexi Sylvestre then  scored a pair which gave Flin Flon a brief lead at 5 to 4.

 

The lead lasted just over a minute as sharp shooter Ben Portner scored on a wrap around to tie the game at 5 with exactly one minute left in the second period.

 

It was all Stars in the third as Hunter Burgeson would get his second in as many games and Alex Izyk and Josh Medernach also found the back of the net. Bomber captain scored his second powerplay goal of the game and is back in the league with 38 on the season.

 

A couple of goal posts on a late Flin Flon powerplay, but they couldn't get any closer and dropped just their fourth of the year in regulation 8 to 6.

 

The Bomber powerplay was smokin and wound up 4 for 6 while the Stars could only bury 1 goal on 7 chances.

 

Kenny Marquart suffered his first regulation loss of the year and gave up 7 goals on 37 shots before making way for Harmon Laser Hume who came in relief and stopped 3 of 3. The Stars added a late empty net goal.

 

Logan Cunningham picked up the win and ended up with 39 saves on 45 shots.

 

The weekend lived up to all the hype and if these two teams to meet up in the playoffs it could go down as one of the most historic playoff series of all time. They have already clashed in some memorable playogff matchups, but this looks like it may end up as the most entertaining of them all.

 

After the weekend split the Bombers sit at 40-4-2 and 82 points. The Stars are now 33-10-3-1 and are 12 points behind Flin Flon for first overall.

 

The Bombers have exactly 10 games left and only 3  at the Whitney Forum. They hit the road for a big three game road trip starting Thursday in Humboldt and a pair of games in Kindersley on Friday and Saturday.

 

Hard to believe, but this is Flin Flon's first visit to the Elgar Petersen Arena this year and beat the Broncos in all three meetings earlier this year at the Whitney Forum. This could be another possible playoff meeting and the Bombers better be ready.

 

You can catch all three games on the road trip right here on 102.9 CFAR  and flinflononline.com. We are on the air from Humboldt on Thursday with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 6:40 and drop of the puck for Creighton Furniture at 7pm.

10 Rinks Competing In Weekend Bonspiel

The mixed curling bonspiel will take place this weekend at the Uptown Curling Rink.

 

10 rinks will be taking part   and the opening draws will take place tomorrow.

The finals will take place Sunday at 1.

Clash Of The Titans

A huge weekend coming up at the Whitney Forum as the Flin Flon Bombers fresh off a 3 to 0 win in Melfort on Wednesday will host the Battleford Stars.

 

The Bombers who are number one  in the country will host the number eight  ranked team and defending champions. Matter of fact,  this is Battleford's first visit since winning the championship on Forum ice last April.

 

The two teams did meet for a very entertaining weekend of hockey in Battleford January the 26th and 27th,  with the Bombers squeezing out a pair of wins including that exciting 5 to 4 OT win on the 26th.

 

Battleford makes their way to town winners of 7 of their last 10 and sit second overall at 32-9-3-1, 12 points behind the front running Bombers. Kian Bell continues to be quite the story and will hit Flin Flon with a staggering 73 points in 31 games.

 

Ben Portner has also caught fire and enters the weekend fourth in overall scoring tied  with the Bombers Jacob Vockler with 60 points a piece.

 

Flin Flon has 5 players in the top ten in league scoring including Justin Lies, Jacob Vockler, Alexi Sylvestre, Noah Houle and Carter Anderson.

 

Flin Flon certainly has lots of fire power but it may be the goaltending that has taken centre stage. Harmon Laser Hume is fresh off a 33 save shut out against Melfort to give him three on the year. His team mate Kenny Marquart has four  for a team combined seven.

 

They rank number one and two in most goaltending categories with Marquart owning the best gaa of 1.59, and Laser Hume is at 1.99.

 

Flin Flon is also the only team in the league that hasn't given up at least 100 goals against this season. The Bombers have only given up 84 goals in 44 games while the next closest team is Melfort with 134 against in 46 games.

 

No doubt it will feel like a playoff atmosphere and you know Battleford wants to spoil the party after dropping both games to the Bombers in late January. You also want confidence that you can win at the Whitney Forum if you do meet up in the post season.

 

We are on Flow TV tonight and back on radio tomorrow. You can catch the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 and drop of the puck for Creighton Furniture at 7:30.

Selects Dump The Flames

The PBCN Selects rolled over the NCN Flames this past weekend at the Whitney Forum in KJHL action 7 to 2.

 

Dion Fontaine did a lot of the damage with a natural hat-trick in the second period. Pavlo Kobikov added a pair with Kobe Tanuak and Dom Suhr rounding out the scoring.

 

Paxton Moore got the call between the pipes and was sharp stopping 28 shots to pick up the win.

 

The Selects improve to 21-9 and that has them sitting nicely in second spot, just 3 points behind the front running Peguis Juniors.

 

PBCN has just the one game this week as they head off to Cross Lake on Saturday to face the Islanders at 7:30.

Bruins Upset The Bombers 4 To 2

The Estevan Bruins played a solid 60 minutes and spoiled the Bombers perfect road trip with a 4 to 2 win on Saturday at Affinity Place,  to hand Flin Flon just their third regulation loss of the season.

 

The night started well with Justin Lies picking up his league leading 35th of the season on the powerplay less than 5 minutes into the the game.

 

Estevan made a goaltending change pulling Jackson Miller after the goal and just four shots in favour of Cam Hrdlicka and the move paid off.

 

Goals the rest of the night were tough to come by and Flin Flon could only muster one more as Hrdlicka ended up stopping 27 out of 28 to help his team pick up the win.

 

Liam Bridger found the back of the net late in the third to make it 3 to 2, but couldn't get the equalizer and Papaspyropoulis seeled it with an empty netter to give the Bruins the 4 to 2 win.

 

Zac Burns, Blake Heward and Ilia Chemelevski scored the other Estevan goals as the Bruins got back to .500 at 20-20-1-2 and now sit 7th overall tied wth Melville.

 

Harmon Laser Hume started the game and gave up 3 goals on 36 shots and played well and suffered just his third loss of the year.

 

Despite the loss, Flin Flon still had a great road trip and ended up going 3-1 with wins over Melville, Notre Dame and Weyburn. These Southern road trips arn't easy and a few players ended up with the flu by the end of the week.

 

The Bomber remain the number one team in the country at 38-3-2 and a league best road record at 17-2-1.

 

Flin Flon will get a stiff test this Wednesday as they will make their way to the Northern Lights Palace to face the Melfort Mustangs. Melfort has beat the Bombers twice this season and put on a defensive clinic the last time they squared  off in Melfort on January the 6th.

 

The Mustangs blanked the Bombers 3 to 0 and didn't allow many good opportunities around their net and frustrated many of the Bomber top offensive threats.  Flin Flon will then host the Battleford Stars in a pair of games this weekend at the Whitney Forum which should have everybody in Bomber nation buzzing as it is always great hockey when these two teams come together.

 

We will broadcast two of the three games this week on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com including the game from Melfort Wednesday. The Great North GM Coach's Show stats at 7:10 and drop of the puck for Creighton Furniture is 7:30.

Selects Back In The Win Column

It was a showdown for second overall in the KJHL last night as the PBCN Selects made their way to Nelson House to play the Flames.

 

In a game that went back and forth the Selects picked up the 7 to 5 win.

 

Dion Fontaine led the way with a pair of goals with Kobe Tanuak, Laryn Chaboyer, Israel Maktar and Bryson Francoeur also finding the back of the net. Francouer was able to get his first of the season.

 

Odin Church was back between the pipes and made 17 saves on 22 shots and also picked up an assist on the first goal of the game.

The rematch will take place at the Whitney Forum this Saturday at 7:30.

Specialty Teams The Difference Again

The Flin Flon Bombers continued their southern road swing last night and played a solid game and ended up with the 5 to 1 win in Wilcox against the Notre Dame Hounds.

 

The Bombers showed the Hounds and the rest of the league how much depth they have as they were missing some key players including Carter Anderson, Adam McNutt and Riley Niven.

 

This would give the likes of Aiden Chow, Reid Arberry and Pierce Yakimchuk a chance to get in the lineup and they all played well and took advantage of the opportunity. 

 

Flin Flon continue to have the best specialty teams in the league and it showed last night with two powerplay markers and a short handed goal.

 

The Bomber captain Justin Lies  found the back of the net with his league leading 33rd goal and 6th short handed marker  to open the scoring just 6:34 into the game.

 

Anthony Piccininno scored a pair including a powerplay goal and now has 16 on the season.

 

New additions Jerome Gilbert scored his first as a Bomber and Tyson Smith picked up his second on the powerplay to round out the scoring.

 

Davis Sato scored on the powerplay for the Hounds and was the only one to beat Bomber netminder Kenny Marquart who ended up with 32 saves for his 13th win of the year.

 

Johan Tremblay Kau started for the Hounds and stopped 29 out of 34 in a losing cause.

 

The Bomers sit at 37-2-2 and an incredible 16-1-1 on the road. They will get a much needed day off today  before resuming the road trip in Weyburn tomorrow and Estevan on Saturday.

 

Don't forget you can catch all the action of both games right here on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com with the Great North GM Coach's Show noth nights at 6:45 and puck drop at 7. Austin Mattess will have the call.

Bombers Hold Off The Mills 3 To 2

The Flin Flon Bombers finally found a way to beat the Melville Millionaires, but it wasn't easy as they hung on for a 3 to 2 win last night at CN Community Centre.

 

Carter Anderson's league leading 20th powerplay goal was the difference, as he fired a nice snapshot past Ethan Rau late in the second period.

 

Anderson has hit 32 goals on the season which has him tied with team mate Justin Lies for the league lead. The Stars Kian Bell and Spencer Bell from Humboldt are close behind with 31.

 

Flin Flon's other goals came from Jacob Vockler who scored just 1:30 into the game. Vockler made a fantastick move on the Melville defensemen before undressing Rau for his 19th of the year.

 

Alexi Sylvestre also found the back of the net on the powerplay for his 21st of the year and was one of the best Bombers on the ice. Every time Sylvestre was out there he made something happen.

 

The Melville goals came from former Nipawin Hawk Joel Mabin and Payton Kostyshyn who scored with less than three minutes left in the game.

 

Melville got a late powerplay and pulled the goalie to go 6 on 4 but couldn't get the equalizer past Harmon Laser Hume who was brilliant once again making 24 saves.

 

That was Laser Hume's 24th win of the year and continues to lead all goalies in the league with a .933 save %.

 

Flin Flon will win the season series 3 to 2, but Melville played the Bombers really well and every game between the two teams this year was decided by one goal.

 

After last night's win, the Bombers will go 36-2-2, best in the country while Melville falls to 20-20 and sit in sixth spot with 40 points, one behind fifth place Estevan with two games in hand.

 

The road trip will continue in Notre Dame tonight, where Flin Flon will face the Hounds. The Bombers haven't seen the Hounds since October and their team has changed quite a bit since then.

 

You can catch all of tonight's action on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:45 and drop of the puck at 8 with Austin Mattes.

Northern Stars Make Their Debut In Swan River

The Northern Stars U-16 Girls Volleyball team made their debut this past weekend in Swan River. They have been practising for the last several weeks and got a chance to play in their first tournament.

 

The team is coached by Ray Shirran and they had a good showing.

 

The Stars won their first game 25 to 18 and 25  to 15 over Swan River. The Stars took on the Predators which is a team made up of girls from Grandview and Gilbert Plains and lost in three sets 25-12, 18-25 and 12-15.

 

They then beat Russell in the Semi's 25 to 14 and 25 -16 which put them in the final and another chance at the Predators.

 

The girls played hard losing in three sets 16-25, 25-22 and 4-15.

 

They finish second and did quite well with three of their players who couldn't make the trip who were playing Senior Basketball.

Islanders Surprise The Selects

The PBCN Selects fired 53 shots at the Cross Lake Islanders yesterday but came up a little  short and dropped a 5 to 4 decision at the Whitney Forum.

 

Keecan Beaulieu  was sensational and was able to keep a lot of the Selects big goal scoreres at bay for much of the afternoon.

 

Cross Lake scored a couple of powerplay goals in the first period and never looked back courtesy of Micah Emiktowt and Bobby Orr Roulette.

 

The Selects got on track in the second and third with goals courtesy of Kobe Tanuyak,Kalin Roy, Mathis Bacon Labbe and Laryn Chaboyer but couldn't get the equalizer.

 

Specialty teams were a big part of the game with the Islanders going 2 for 2 while PBCN ended up 0 for 5.

 

This was a tough loss for the Selects who could of taken over sole possesion of second place over the NCN Flames who remain one point ahead and both teams have played 28 games.

 

The weekend wasn't a total loss as the Selects beat the first place Peguis Juniors in OT 5 to 4  on Saturday courtesy of the OT winner from Israel Maktar.

 

The Selects will get another chance to take over second overall as they will head off to NCN to face the Flames this Wednesday at 7:30. NCN makes their way to the Whitney Forum this Saturday to complete the home and home.

The Queens beat Souris and Virden before losing to the host team from Prairie  Mountain to finish second.

 

The Queens get a two week break before heading back south to Warren.

 

The Senior Kings were in Cranberry for the Frontier Collegiate Classic.

 

Hapnot took it to OCN 86 to 10 and Fisher River 74 to 36. They would play Cranberry in the final and the Raiders played very well and prevailed 65 to 42 to win the tournament.

 

Norway House finished third beating Fisher River 67 to 40.

 

 

 

 

 

The Pas Takes Home The Teagan Quinn Cup

The Teagan Quinn Memorial  tournament wrapped up yesterday afternoon at both the Whitney Forum and Sportex with 8 teams taking part from the Pas,OCN, Cross Lake, Thompson  and the host U-13 Kinsmen Bombers.

 

In the Consolation Final OCN beat Cross Lake team  number 2 ,  5 to 3.

 

In the B Final for the A Bracket it was Thompson knocking off the Pas 4 to 3 in OT.

 

The AA Final saw the Pas pick up the convincing 6 to 0 win over the Kinsmen Bombers to win the Teagan Quinn Cup. The Bombers went 2-2 and have qualified for Provincials in the Pas the weekend of March the 8th.

 

The Peds Threads Bombers had a good showing in the Pas for the Grub Box Tournament and won both their round robin games against Cross Lake and Hudson Bay.

 

They won their pool so they crossed over to play Thompson for the Grub Box Cup and ended up losing to Thompson 4 to 2. The team played well and just came up a little bit short.

 

The Peds Threads Bombers will now head to the Munn Cup in Thompson the weekend of February the 15th and are the Norman Regional Champions so they have qualified for Provincials in Grand Plains in March.

 

 

Bombers Crush The Hawks

There seems to be no stopping the Flin Flon Bombers who rolled to a convincing 8 to 0 win over the Nipawin Hawks on Friday. It was Hockey Night In The North and the Whitney Forum was jam packed with over 1500 fans in attendance.

 

The game was basicilly over in the first 10 minutes as the Bombers jumped out to a quick 4 to 0 lead.

 

Carter Anderson continued his fine play with a pair of goals to give him 31 on the season, which is second overall only  to team mate Justin Lies. He also scored another powerplay goal to give him a whopping 19 which is the most in the league.

 

Riley Niven, who has been playing some good hockey got rewared with his first two in a Bomber uniform and finally got the monkey off his back with a nice offensive burst early in the game.

 

I thought Niven was one of the best Bombers on the ice in the Battleford series and he was able to carry that over in the game against the Hawks on Friday. It looks like he is playing  with a lot more confidence.

 

Matt Egan was back in the lineup for the first time in 2024 after serving his 6 game suspension and coming off successful surgery and was able to find the back of the net twice.

 

With lots of   family and friend's  in attendance, Egan had a game to remember and was a big spark for the entire team on Friday and will be a big inspiration down the stretch. This young man has battled a ton of obstacles but never gives up and will be an important piece down the stretch to the post season.

 

The other two goals came from Anthony Piccininno and Tyson Smith who collected his first of the year after coming over from Selkirk of the MJHL, on January the 10th.

 

Kenny Marquart was good when he had to be and made 29 saves for his league leading fourth shutout of the year.

 

Damon Cunningham started for Nipawin and played well despite giving up 6 goals on 32 shots. He was hung out to dry several times and made some highlight reel saves in a losing cause.

 

AP, Jaidyn Shaw came in relief and stopped 4 of 6 shots.

 

Flin Flon who are the only team to officially clinch a playoff spot are now 35-2-2 and lead the second place Stars by 6 points with four games in hand.

 

Nipawin continues to struggle and the playoffs are in jeopardy with 7 straight losses and they sit 9th overall with 36 points, one point behind Weyburn for the final playoff spot. The Wings do have two games in hand.

 

It is a big week for the Maroon and White Express who embark on a 4 game in 5 night road trip starting in Melville on Tuesday. The Mills have beat the Bombers twice this season and they are battling for a playoff position as well.

 

You can listen to all four games of the trip on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com including Wednesday from Notre Dame, Friday in Weyburn and Saturday in Estevan.

 

Austin Mattess will make the trip and broadcast all four games. Puck drop in Melville is 7pm on Tuesday and we will be on the air with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 6:45.
