Bombers Close Out Regular Season In Style

The Flon Flon Bombers clashed with the Laronge Ice Wolves in a home and home this past weekend to close out the SJHL regular season.

 

On Friday the Wolves downed the Bombers 5 to 1 at the Mel Hegland Uniplex.

 

Don't let the score fool you, the Bombers skated well but couldn't get many pucks past Dawson Smith.

 

Alex Von Sprecken was the only Bomber to find the back of the net,  when he scored a nice power play goal early in the second.

 

Flin Flon had a very good showing despite 8 regulars out of the line-up.

 

On Saturday, Flin Flon wanted to put on a good show for the fans and end the season on a positive note.

 

After falling down 2 to 0 early in the first period on goals from  Jacob Visintini and Liam McGinnis, the Bombers got rolling.

 

Brent Gulenchyn pounced on a big rebound and beat Dawson smith with just one second remaining in the first period.

 

This really sparked Flin Flon who were able to tie the game when Ethan Mercer fed a nice pass from back of the net , out front to Brock Mueller who beat Smith up high over his left shoulder.

 

This sent the crowd into a frenzy and it was tied at 2 after 2.

 

Laronge got a great opportunity to retake the lead when the Bombers took a double minor early in the third, but it was the Bombers who responded.

 

Brent Gulenchyn was able to grab a loose puck outside the Wolves blue line and cruised in on the break away and made an incredible move to beat Dawson Smith and scored the biggest goal of his career.

 

Flin Flon scratched and clawed the rest of the way and hung on for the 3 to 2 win and found a way to get it done yet again with a depleted line-up.

 

This was a statement game for Harmon Laser Hume who made 35 saves and was dialed in and made lots of timely saves especially in the third period.

 

The Bombers will end the season 6-3-1 in their last 10 and finish third overall at 37-15-2-2. They also end the year with 22 home wins.

 

Flin Flon is expecting some injured players back for their opening series against Estevan which will start at the Whitney Forum with game's one and two this Friday and Saturday.

 

Game's three and four will be in Estevan next Tuesday and Wednesday.

 

Laronge will finish fifth overall and they travel to Melfort to kick off their series on Friday.
