Kodiaks Meet Islanders For Northern Saskatchewan Football Championship

Tomorrow is the first step in what could end up being a great fall for the Creighton Kodiaks 6 man football team.


The Kodiaks will have home field advantage for the playoffs,  and will host the Cumberland House Islanders for the Ralph Pilz trophy tomorrow afternoon to decide the Northern Saskatchewan Football Championship.


Creighton was 3-1 in the regular season and remember their one loss was a forfeit game to start the year against SMVS.


The Kodiaks steam rolled their competition in the next three games out scoring their opponents 202 to 34 and are certainly the huge favorite entering tomorrow's game


Saying that , Head Coach Ryan Karkokochuk isn't taking anything for granted. "  You can be driving and fumble the ball on the snap,  a couple of tip passes or an interception and you can behind the 8 ball and you are pressing. Saying that with 6 man football  your best athletes usually come to the fore front. I feel confident that way but we will have to start fast and take care of buisiness."


Cumberland did finish the regular season 2-2.


Tomorrow's kick off will be 2 pm, Manitoba time at the Creighton Field and the weather is supposed to hold up.


The Kodiaks will host Shellbrook the following Saturday despite the outcome of tomorrow's game as they will begin the Provincial bracket.


Northstars Hit The Road

The Norman Northstars will try to keep the momentum going after picking up their first win on home ice last weekend against the Parkland Rangers.


The Northstars will hit the road this weekend with a pair of games against the Winnipeg Thrashers tonight at 8 and tomorrow at 3:45. The Thashers are 3-5-1 so far this year.


They will also play the Winnipeg Wild on Sunday at 1:45 who are 4-0-1 this year.


Norman is 10th overall at 2-7.

Bruins Snap Bombers Winning Streak

The Flin Flon Bombers were 20 minutes away from picking up their 7th straight win last night.


Flin Flon continued their Southern swing in Estevan and took a 1-0 lead into the third period on a goal by Jaxson Martens who picked up his fourth of the year on the PP.


The Bombers stormed out of the gate and out shot the home town Bruins 18 to 9 in the first period but had a hard time solving Boston Bilous.


Trailing 1-0 in the third,  Estevan rallied around their goaltender and scored a short handed goal early in the period to take the momentum. 


Caelan Fitzpatrick scored the short handed goal with the game winning goal coming from Eric Houk  mid way through the final frame as the Bruins took last night's contest 3 to 1.


Mikol Sartor scored into the empty net with only 41 seconds remaining.


Both goalies were very good with Bilous making 41 saves and the Bombers Cal Schell stopping 28.


The Flin Flon Bomber power play which has been so dominant this year only managed 1 goal on 6 tries and they did give up the short handed goal.


The Bruins were 0 for 2.


After last  night's loss the Bomber record sits at 10-4 and they remain first overall, with a one point lead on division rival Melfort. 


Estevan will improve to 6-3 and are starting to pull away in the Viterra Division.


Flin Flon will enjoy a day off today before resuming the trip in Notre Dame on Friday.

Nice Way To Start The Trip

The Flin Flon Bombers have found their groove as they kicked off their Southern road trip with a nice 4 to 2 win in Melville.


This was a tight game all the way through with the Bombers needing an empty net goal to pick up the victory.


The game was tied at 2 after 2 before Cole Vardy would score the eventual game winner 6:12 into the final period.


Vardy continues to have a career season as he scored his 5th goal and leads all SJHL Defensemen with 11 points.


Jaeden Mercier added his 5th into the empty net to seal the deal with less than 30 seconds to go.


The other Bomber goals came from Zak Smith and Kylynn Olafson.


Cal Schell was back between the pipes and he made 34 saves for his 7th win of the year.


Melville got their goals from Jake Spak and Jonathan Krahn and former Bomber Jared Thompson was once again impressive in goal stopping 39 out of 42.


With last night's win the Bombers have won 6 in a row and have taken over sole possesion of first place at 10-3. They are 1 point up on Melfort with the Mustangs having one game in hand.


They will get a big test tonight as the road trip continues in Estevan against the 5-3 Bruins.


Estevan has only played 8 games this year and feature a deep line up with lots of players that have major junior experience as they continue to fill their roster as hosts of this year's Centennial Cup.


Puck drop will be 8:30 MB time tonight.

Bombers Keep Piling Up The Wins

It was parent's weekend and the Flin Flon Bombers put on a show taking both games against the Melville Millionaires this weekend, 9 to 3 and 4 to 3 in OT.


On Friday , they were actually down 3 to 1 after 1 but erupted for 8 straight goals, cruising to the 9 to 3 victory.


The top line of Duperreault, Martens and Mercier combined for 12 points with Duperreault scoring a pair to take over the team lead with 7 goals.


Cal Schell back stopped the team to his 6th win with  28 saves.


You knew Melville was going to be much better on Saturday and they were,  competing hard and forcing the game to OT.


It was a night that Brett Wieschorster and Nathan Flodell will never forget as they collected their first goals of the season .


Flodell,  scored a really nice goal as he grabbed a loose puck in the Mill's zone and fired it through Jared Thompson's legs to the crowd's huge elation.


Wiershorster, who is a terrific skater scored his on a nice juicy rebound.


Nathan Gagne led the way with a pair, his 5th and 6th including the OT winner.


After the Mills made a rush down the ice, the Bombers stopped them at the blue line and went down the ice 3 on 1 with Gagne taking the drop pass from Smith and flipped it into the top corner for the B'S 5th straight win and 9th overall.


Max Hildebrand got the start and made 29 saves for his third win.


Melville got their goals from: Jonathan Krahn, Zach Cain and Zach McIntire.


Former Bomber, Jared Thompson got the start against his former team and played extremely well stopping 50 out of 54 Bomber shots.


Flin Flon will improve to 9 and 3 on the season and will get a big test this week as they head out for a 4 in 5 game road trip.


They will see Melville again on Tuesday, Estevan on Wednesday, Notre Dame on Friday and Weyburn Saturday.


Our next broadcast of Flin Flon Bomber hockey will be on October the 29th when Yorkton comes to town.

Northstars Pick Up Second Win

The Norman Northstars got a huge confidence boost yesterday as they picked up their first win on home ice and second overall, downing the Parkland Rangers 5 to 2.


All the goals were scored in the third period, with Flin Flon's Magnus Pearson and Nolan Rideout assisting on the game winning goal by Kadin Eetuk.


OCN'S Chechoo Lathlin led the way with a pair of goals.


With the win,  the Northstars improve to 2-7 and move up to tenth overall in the league standings.


They hit the road this weekend with a pair of games against the Winnipeg Thrashers and one game against the Winnipeg Wild.

Bombers Tackle Mills

The Flin Flon Bombers will put their three game winning streak on the line this weekend as they will play host to the Melville Millionaires.


The Bombers are playing some good hockey as they are vaulting up the standings at 7-3,  which is not only good enough for second in the Sherwood but good for second over all too.


Flin Flon is getting great goaltending from Cal Schell who just picked up the SJHL Goalie Of The week and has only given up 1 goal in his last three starts.


Schell is 5-2 with a gaa of 2.29 and a save % of .930. Very good numbers to begin the season.


The Bombers are also scoring by committee this season with only two of their players in the top 20 in league scoring.


Jaeden Mercier sits 15th with 10 points and Jeremi Tremblay who has caught fire in his last three games  sits 17th overall with 9 points.


Melville limps into town with just one win this year but are still second in the Viterra Division with 5 points.


One thing about the SJHL is you can never take your opponent for granted and the Bombers will need to be ready to go against a young hungry Melville team.


Don't forget to join us tonight for the return of Creighton Furniture Bomber Hockey as we will hit the air with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:15 and drop of the puck at 7:30.



Northstars Host Parkland

The Norman Northstars will try to use the momentum from last weekend's first win of the season as they host the Parkland Rangers tomorrow and Sunday.


Norman has a record of 1-6 while Parkland comes to Thompson with a record of 3-3-1.


Brady Krentz,  who scored the OT winner against the Winnipeg Bruins last weekend continues to be a good story leading the Northstars in scoring with 10 points in 7 games.


Games are Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 1:30 at the CA Nesbitt Arena.

Kodiaks Close Out Season With Another Impressive Win

The Creighton Kodiaks wrapped up the regular season yesterday in the Northern Saskatchewan Football League  with another impressive win as they rolled over Ahtahkakoop 67 to 8.


This game was never in doubt as the Kodiaks stormed on to the field and led 51 to 0 after the first quarter. They made it 57 to 0 at the half.


Head Coach, Ryan Karakochuk was true to his word and gave all his players a chance to play in the second half and the Kodiaks tried a few different things scoring 10 more points for the 67 to 8 win.


Among the highlights was a Carson Straile 50 yard receiving TD and Noah Olivier an interception return for a TD.


Olivier also ran for three more touchdowns, and Myles Patterson scored two touchdowns, one in the air and the other on the  ground.


The Kodiaks will finish the regular season at 3-1 and will host Cumberland House in the Northern Final next Saturday at 2 at the Creighton Field.


With the Kodiaks finishing first in their Conference they will also automatically host the first game of Provincials the following Saturday also at 2 at the Creighton Field.

Schell Shines Again

The Flin Flon Bombers only had to score two goals last night as Cal Schell once again was brilliant in stopping 26 shots as the Bombers went into the Cage and beat the Nipawin Hawks 2 to 1.


Schell is proving it isn't necessarilly how many saves you make but when you make them as he was there with many timely saves in last night's win.


The Hawks only managed 6 shots in the first period, but three of them were great chances. He also stood tall in the last few minutes of the game as the Hawks pulled their goalie and got a late power play but couldn't score.


I counted at least three chances from point blank range that Schell was able to deliver big stops.


Schell improves to 5-2 and his save percentage now sits at a solid .930. Schell was also awarded the SJHL Goalie Of The Week for his great play last week that saw him pick up back to back shut outs.


Cole Vardy and Jeremi Tremblay provided the offense with Vardy scoring just 1:04 into the opening period on the PP.


Vardy fired a beautiful shot over Chase Hamm's right shoulder for his third of the season.


After Rylan Lefebvre tied the game in the second, the red hot Jeremi Tremblay was able to answer with a nice wrister through the legs of Hamm which did stand up as the game winner.


It was a good goaltending match-up both ways with Hamm finishing up with 33 saves.


This was a big win for the Bombers as they have sole possesion of second place in the Sherwood Division at 7-3.  Nipawin will fall to 5 and 3 but still have two games in hand on Flin Flon.


Next up will be the Melville Millionaires who come to town for a pair of games this weekend and we will have Friday's game here on 102.9 CFAR and with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:15.

Second On The Line In Sherwood

After a weekend sweep of the Kindersley Klippers the Flin Flon Bombers head to the Cage to battle the Nipawin Hawks tonight.


Flin Flon won Friday 4-0 and got the offense rolling with a 7 to 2 win on Saturday against a depleted Kindersley line up who were only able to dress 11 forwards.


Cal Schell is on a roll and collected his second straight shut out making 26 saves in Friday's game.


Rookie Max Hildebrand started Saturday and picked up his second win of the year with 19 saves.


The offense was spread out with Cole Duppereault, Cole Vardy, Jeremi Tremblay and Jacob Vockler all having multi point weekends.


The Bombers have leap frogged Nipawin for second in the Sherwood at 6-3 while the Hawks are third at 5-2 and do have 2 games in hand. Nipawin had the weekend off.


Melfort continues to lead the division at 7-1-0-1


This will be the second meeting of the season with the Hawks winning in Flin Flon 4 to 1 on September the 28th.


This remains one of the best rivalries in the league and these two teams  always seem to bring the best out of each other.


No matter what go's down you will have the best seat in the house as we

are back on the air tonight with Creighton Furniture Flin Flon Bomber Hockey,  including  the Great North GM Coach's Show at 8:15 and drop of the puck at 8:30 MB time.

This will snap Flin Flon's winning streak at 3 games.


Kindersley responded with two goals later in the first period from Logan Linklater and Brenden Lee which stood up as the game winner.


Max Hildebrand got the start for the Bombers and he stopped 19 out of 21 shots and saw his record slip to 1-1. Brett Sweet was much busier stopping 35 out of 36 and was the key to his team's victory.

Schell Shuts Out The Terriers

It took only one goal to decide yesterday's battle between the Flin Flon Bombers and Yorkton Terriers as they hooked up at the SJHL Showcase in Warman.


Jacob Vockler was able to beat Terrier netminder Kael Depape with a shot that appeared to hit the cross bar, but the officials awarded the Bombers the goal and it did stand up as the game winner.


Bomber goalie Cal Schell stood tall and was the difference  stopping all 45 shots fired in his direction and was  certainly the best player on the ice.


The Bombers were only able to muster 28 shots at the Yorkton net.


Schell picked up his second career shut out and his record stands at 3-2 and improved his save % to .915


With the win, Flin Flon has leaped to the top of the Sherwood Division with a record of 4-2 and are tied with the Nipawin Hawks.

Bombers Sweep Wolves

The Flin Flon Bombers had no trouble filling the back of the net this past weekend and took both games against the Laronge Ice Wolves  including a 6 to 4 win on Saturday.


The Bombers went into Laronge on Friday and fired 55 shots at Dawson Smith and picked up a 7 to 4 victory.


Nathan Gagne led the way with a pair of goals his 2nd and 3rd of the season with other goals coming from :  Xavier Lapointe(2), Cole Vardy (1), Jaeden Mercier (1), Jeremi Tremblay (1) and Gabriel Shipper (1).


Cal Schell picked up the victory making 25 saves.


The same two teams hooked up at the Whitney Forum and after a slow start the Bombers founf their groove in the second period.


With the game tied at 1 after 1, the Bombers scored three times in the second on goals from Richmond (1), Tremblay(2) and Gagne (4) to put the good guys up 4 to 1 after 2.


The two teams traded goals early in the third with the Wolves leading scorer Nolan Doell and the Bombers Zac Smith finding the back of the net.


Smith was making his Bomber debut after coming over in a three way trade with the MJHL'S Neepawa Natives and OCN Blizzard.


With Flin Flon up 5 to 2 late in the third the Wolves didn't quit and made things very interesting on goals from Greyeyes and Christensen to get it to 5 to 4.


The Bombers did seal it with an empty netter from Jaeden Mercier who picked up his second of the season to make the final 6 to 4. 


Max Hildebrand made his Bomber debut after a late cut from the PA Raiders and looked good stopping 29 out of 33 shots.


Flin Flon improves to 3-2 on the season while the Wolves will fall to 1-3.


With the two wins the Bombers sit third in the Sherwood Division at 3-2 and now are getting ready for  the Showcase in Warman starting tonight against the Yorkton Terriers.


The Terriers are struggling to start the season and are currently 1-4 but still sit second in the Viterra Division.


Flin Flon will play Kindersley tomorrow afternoon.








Kodiaks Crush Islanders

The Creighton Kodiaks got to play their much awaited home opener yesterday and did not disappoint the large crowd in attendance with another impressive offensive display.


The Kodiaks poured it on and rolled over the Cumberland House Islanders 68 to 20.


In a game that most likely will secure home field for the Kodiaks in the playoffs, this game was never in doubt.


Creighton jumped out to a quick 18-0 lead after the first quarter and kept piling up the points with a 48 to 8 lead at the half.


Noah Olivier had another good day with three touch downs and four converts.  Another highlight was a 70 yard strike from QB, Marcus Kennedy to Carson Straile.


Jaxson Smith, Myles Patterson and Connor Andrews also scored touch downs and Gracie Dubinak added two converts.


Head Coach Ryan Karkakochuk was happy with how his team played yesterday. " It was great to see the environment, the fans and play our first home game in two years. With that said I thought we took command of the line of scrimmage and that is the most important part of football that people don't understand. If you can establish the line of scrimmage, you can run the ball and that opens up the pass and we could do anything we wanted yesterday."


The Kodiaks improve to 2-1 on the season and will travel to Laronge next Tuesday October the 5th before hosting Athahkakoop on October the 13th to wrap up the regular season.
