The Flin Flon Bombers lost their second straight game on their current road trip dropping a 6-1 decision in Notre Dame last night.
It took the Hounds just 1:14 in to the opening period to score their first goal when Alec Sawatzky notched his 6th of the season on the powerplay and Notre Dame never looked back.
Zack Kosteniuk scored the eventual game winner just 5 minutes later when he beat Brenden Newton for his first of two on the night and third of the season.
Dawson McKenzie would get the Bombers on the board with his second of the season at 12:42, but that is as close as the Bombers would get all night trailing the Hounds 2-1 after 1.
Other Notre Dame goals came from Longjohn, Perka, Ally and Kosteniuk his second of the game for a convincing 6-1 victory.
The Bombers got their first look at rookie goalie Niklas Anderson who came in relief of Newton late in the second period and he stopped 6 out of 8. Newton stopped 18 out of 22 and has given up 10 goals in the last two games after leading the league in gaa and save % coming into the road trip.
This is the Bombers third loss in regulation this year and see their overall record fall to 5-3-0-3, and remain 6 points behind division leading Melfort with both teams playing 11 games.
Notre Dame improves to 5-3-1-1 and take over first place in the Olympic Buildings Division.
