Kodiaks Season Is Over

The Creighton Kodiaks saw their season come to an end this past weekend in the 6 Man Saskatchewan Football League.

 

The Kodiaks travelled to Wakaw to face the number one team in the province and ran out of gas losing 50 to 16.

 

Creighton did keep the score close early on touchdowns from Jaxon Smith and Carson Straile, but the experienced Wakaw team would eventually pull away.

 

The Kodiaks had to battle through some injuries and couldn't get back in the game in the second half.

 

Even though they did see their season come to an end,  it was still a very successful year that included another Ralph Pilz Trophy for winning their third straight Northern Saskatchewan Football  Title.

 

A big thanks to all the coach's, players,  volunteers, parents, and fans for being part of another great season.

 

Be listening for our final Creighton Kodiak Football with Head Coach Ryan Karakochuk later this week.

 

The Kodiaks will also  announce their awards banquet later this week. 

 

 

Queens Win Tournament In The Pas

A busy weekend for the Senior Hapnot Queens and Kings volleyball teams.

 

The Queens were in the Pas for the MBCI Invitational tournament.

 

Hapnot went undefeated and swept Fronteir out of Cranberry in the semi's before beating  Oscar Lathlin in the final  two sets to none.

 

This is the fourth tournament win of the season for the Queens who continue to be one of the top ranked teams in the province.

 

The Kings were in Morris and played very well finishing first in their pool.

 

Hapnot then went on to beat 10th ranked Immanuel Chistian in the semi's  25 to 18, 23-25 and 15 to 13.

 

The Kings would then face the Rosenort Redhawks in the final and battled hard losing 25 to 20 and 25 to 19.

 

Not bad for a second place finish.

Flin Flon Continues To Dominate At Home

The Flin Flon Bombers continue to impress and win games at the Whitney Forum after another weekend sweep of the Melville Millionaires.

 

The Maroon and White took both games by scores of 4 to 2 and 5 to 4.

 

The Bomber win streak reached 5 at home and they are now 8-0-1-1 at home for the season.

 

Flin Flon also had an incredible October which saw them go 8-2-1 and they are first in the Sherwood Division at 11-3-1-1,  and lead second place Laronge by 3 points with a game in hand.

 

The offense was once again very spread out with Jeremi Tremblay, Alexi Sylvestre, Liam Bridger, Brent Gulenchyn, Jaxon Martens and Cole Duperreault all finding the back of the net this weekend.

 

Both Bomber goalies got starts with Harmon Laser Hume making 18 saves on Friday for his 8th win of the season.

 

Kenny Marquart got the call on Saturday and played very well making 28 saves.

 

It was parents weekend and a big thanks to Rob Simon and the Bomber board for organizing a very special weekend,  with lots of activities and events for the Bomber parents to enjoy when they were in town.

 

Next up for the Bombers will be a big Sherwood Division tilt with the Melfort Mustangs. Flin Flon heads to the Northern Lights Palace for the first time on Wednesday and you can hear all the action on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

 

We will be on the air with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 8:10 and drop of the puck at 8:30 Manitoba time.

 

This will be the second meeting of the year with the Bombers shutting out the Stangs in their home opener 2 to 0 back on September the 16th.

Bombers Tangle With The Mills

The Flin Flon Bombers will get back on the ice after a 6 day break and will face the Melville Millionaires in a pair of games at the Whitney Forum.

 

Flin Flon sits top spot in the Sherwood Division at 9-3-1-1 and have been very good at home with a record of  6-0-1-1.

 

Melville is one of the most improved teams from last year and come to town with a record of 6-8-1-1 and are second in the Viterra, 4 points behind Estevan.

 

The Mills also have 3 games in hand and are coming off a big win in Laronge on Wednesday winning 5 to 3.

 

The Bombers have beaten Melville twice already this season with a win in Melville back on October the 11th, 7 to 2. Flin Flon also beat them at the Showcase back on September the 27th 5 to 4 in OT.

 

Flin Flon seems to have found their groove offensively and are led by 20 year old forward's Cole Duperreault and Jaeden Mercier.

 

Duperreault and Mercier sit 7th overall in league scoring with 19 points in 14 games.

 

Flin Flon also has 7 players who have hit double digits in goals and the addition of Jacob Vockler has made the team even more dangerous.

 

Vockler has 8 points in 7 games since returning from the US and has helped the Bombers improve their powerplay.

 

Flin Flon is the top team in the league with the man advantage at 26.8 % and their PK isn't too shabby either, second overall at 86.2 %.

 

One of the reasons that Melville is vastly improved is that they are scoring more goals. They have scored 48 goals in 16 games and if they can get a little better defensively, should help them vault up the standings.

 

Melville has given up 57, which is fourth from the bottom.

 

Flin Flon looks to keep their impressive play going at the Whitney Forum where they haven't surrendered a single goal in their last three home games.

 

Don't forget to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to Northland Ford's We Scare Hunger campaign. Northland Ford will be collecting food  items  at both entrances tonight.

 

Tonight's game will be broadcast on Hockey TV, with the pre game show at 7:25. We are back on radio tomorrow with the call on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

 

We kick it all off with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10.

Off To Wakaw

The Creighton Kodiaks managed to get the snow cleared off their field and had a good week of practise in preparation for their playoff game in Wakaw Saturday.

 

The Kodiaks are healthy and riding a high after a 42 to 36 win against Cumberland House to capture their third straight Northern Saskatchewan Football title last weekend.

 

Creighton will be the under-dog as Wakaw is the number one team in the province and are undefeated this season.

 

Head Coach Ryan Karakochuk relishes the underdog role " It is exciting and we are going to go there and show them what a Northern team is. There Conference was weak this year and I talked to their coach and he said they had no one to play this year. We have seen the film on who they played and we are going to be ready as we possibly can be. We have the players to get the job done. I fell very confident that we will score points and if we make some plays on defense, you just never know what can happen."

 

The weather is supposed to be very good and kickoff is 1pm Sask time on Saturday.

 

Lots of parents and spectattors are expected to make the trip to Wakaw this weekend.

Selects Knock Off Juniors

The PBCN Selects are the first team to beat the defending Keystone Junior B Champs out of Peguis after a hard fought 4 to 3 win yesterday afternoon.

 

The Selects rebounded after a 7 to 1 loss on Saturday.

 

Koby Connelly scored the winning goal just after the 14 minute mark of the third period and Braxton Constant Kuba held the fort the rest of the way.

 

Kuba was lights out and made 46 saves as his team was heavilly out shot 49 to 21.

 

Other goals came from Dwayne McKenzie who picked up a pair and Nik Bear who scored his team leading 17th of the year.

 

The Selects record improves to 4-4-0-1 and are just 3 points out of first place overall.

Champions Again

The Creighton Kodiaks travelled to Cumberland House earlier today and dug deep to win another Ralph Pilz Trophy with a 42 to 36 win over the Islanders. 

 

The Kodiaks were looking to avenge a loss to Cumberland a few weeks back for their only loss of the year.

 

Cumberland had a deep veteran group and were the favorites heading into the Championship game this afternoon.

 

Creighton would not be denied,  and put together a masterpiece in all aspects of the game and won the turn- over battle 4 to 2.

 

Peyton Pelletier intercepted Cumberland on the final play of the game to seel the win. A  big celebration  followed from the Kodiaks and their allegiance of fans who made the trip to support their team for the biggest win of the season.

 

Carson Straile was a beast and once again led his team offensively with a 4 touchdown performance. His biggest catch was a 50 yarder with only a minute left in the game.

 

Markus Kennedy and Aidan Joa Hall had the other touchdowns.

 

Creighton is once again the Northern Saskatchewan Champions for the third straight year , and will have momentum as they travel to Wakaw next Saturday for Provincial play.

 

Congratulations to the coach's , players, volunteers and the entire school for a gutsy win. The Kodiaks dedicated the victory today to their special team-mate Caleb Janzen.

 

Listen in Tuesday to the next Norman Sportsline Program,  as Head Coach Ryan Karokochuk and players from the Championship team will be our special guests in studio at 3:30.

Bombers Shut Out Hounds

It was a goaltending dual of epic proportions last night at the Whitney Forum.

 

Both the Bombers Harmon Laser Hume and the Hounds Tucker Inabinet put on a clinic with what seemed like several highlight reel saves both ways.

 

In the end,  the Bombers did sneak a couple pucks past Inabinet in pulling out the 2 to 0 victory.

 

The game remained scoreless til the 2:48 mark of the third period when Jeremi Tremblay jumped on a rebound and picked up his 6th of the year on the powerplay.

 

That would stand up as the game winner,  but Bomber Captain Lucas Fry scored a big insurance goal late when he fooled Inabinet with a shot from just inside the blue line.

 

This was Fry's first of the season.

 

Flin Flon out shot Notre Dame 39 to 35 and gained some revenge from a 4 to 1 setback against the Hounds last Saturday.

 

Harmon Laser Hume picked up his league leading third shutout of the year and continues to impress with a save % of .933.

 

The Bombers also  snapped Notre Dame's three game winning streak.

 

With the win, Flin Flon improves to 9-3-1-1 and sit first in the Sherwood Division with 20 points. The Hounds fall to 5-7-0-1 and remain third in the Global Ag Risk Solution Division.

 

The Bombers will get a 6 day break and return to action next weekend when one of the most improved teams from last season comes to the Whitney Forum.

 

The Melville Millionaires pay their first visit up North,  and the Bombers have already beaten the Mills twice this year including a 7 to 2 win in Melville back on October the 11th.

 

We will broadcast Saturday's game right here on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com including the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10.

Kodiaks Look To Defend Their Title

The Creighton Kodiak 6 Man Football Team are preparing for their biggest game of the season , as they head to Cumberland House tomorrow for the Northern Saskatchewan Football Championship.

 

Creighton will be looking for their third straight Ralph Pilz Trophy and this is the fourth straight time they will meet Cumberland in the final.

 

Cumberland is a very strong team that has gone undefeated so far this season and did beat the Kodiaks a few weeks back by a score of 66 to 40.

 

Head Coach Ryan Karokochuk says he feels they will be better prepared this time. " We are feeling good, we practised very hard this week and we broke down their tape to the best we possibly could. The last game bothered us not going up there as  prepared as we needed to be. We are going in there fully healthy, so we should have a good shot and we are ready to go."

 

No matter what happens tomorrow, both these teams will play at least one more game as they will move into Provincials the following weekend.

 

The Kodiaks will play the winner of Wakaw  and Birch Hills and Cumberland will play the winner of Carrot River and ST. Brieux.

The Bombers have won 6 of their last 7 games and remain first in the Sherwood at 7-1-1-1 with 16 points.

 

This was a big win because both Nipawin and Laronge won last night to keep pace as the Hawks are 4 points behind and the Wolves are 5.

 

Next up will be the rematch of this last Spring's SJHL final as the Bombers make their much awaited return to Affinity Place in Estevan.

It was a very impressive weekend for the Flin Flon Bombers who posted back to back shutouts over the Kindersley Klippers.

 

The Bombers took both Friday's and Saturday's games by scores of 4 to 0.

 

On Friday, Harmon Laser Hume stopped all 30 shots he faced for his second shutout of the year. Saturday, the rookie Kenneth Marquart got just his second start of the year and made 20 saves for his first ever SJHL shutout.

 

It was a good weekend for Jaeden Mercier who finally found the back of the net for his first two goals of the season. Jaxon Martens also scored a pair and local product Joey Lies was able to score his first ever SJ goal on Saturday.

 

Lies picked up a puck in the corner and fired it on Klipper netminder Logan Falk beating him high blocker side.  

 

Falk was the real only bright spot for Kindersley who were out played badly in both weekend contests.

 

Flin Flon fired 106 shots at the Klipper net in the two games and only gave up 50. Falk looks like the real deal and if Kindersley can get him some help he should have a bright career.

 

After the weekend the Bombers will improve to 6-1--1-1 and continue to lead the Sherwood Division with 14 points. That is 4 more than Nipawin and Melfort, and Flin Flon has two games in hand.

 

The Bombers also announced another trade after Saturday's game. The team has acquired Wyatt Cook from the Bonnyville Pontiaks of the AJHL for a player development fee. Cook has 1 assist in 4 games for the Pontiaks this season.

 

Next up for the Maroon and White will be a challenging 4 game in 5 night road trip starting tomorrow in Melville.

 

The Bombers will also hit Estevan on Wednesday, Weyburn on Friday and wrapping up in Notre Dame on Saturday.

Wiens Gets Special Nomination

Congratulations to Flin Flon's Josie Wiens who has been nominated by Judo Saskatchewan for the U-14 Female Athlete Of The Year.

 

Josie is coming off a very stong year in which she won a Bronze Medal at the Edmonton International Judo Tournament , which is the largest judo tournament in the world.

Josie is looking forward to a full judo season which will include a trip to the Saskatchewan Summer Games, The Saskatchewan Open, and the Edmonton International.

 

If all go's well a chance at the National Championship.

Bombers Trade Kohle

The Flin Flon Bombers continue to make moves to bolster their roster with another move announced by the hockey club earlier this afternoon.

 

With the addidtion of Alex Von Sprecken, who was acquired by Estevan on Tuesday, the Bombers had one to many 20 year olds.

 

Kayden Kohle is the odd man out and was dealt to the Portage Terriers of the MJHL for a PDF and a player to be named later.

 

Kohle spent three years in the WHL with the Tri City Americans and Vancouver Giants appearing in way over 100 games and accumalated 16 points including 5 goals.

 

In 7 games with the Bombers Kohle had 1 assist.

 

Head Coach and GM, Mike Reagan says he expects to complete another deal later today as the Bombers play host to the Kindersley Klippers this weekend

Kodiaks Lose First Game Of The Season

It was a tough afternoon yesterday for the Creighton Kodiaks who lost for the first time this season in the Northern Saskatchewan Football League.

 

It was also their most lopsided loss in franchise history losing 66 to 40 in Cumberland House.

 

The Islanders jumped out to a quick 14 to 0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back.

 

Creighton did manage to tie the game at 34 in the third quarter, but Cumberland's offense was too much on this day and they had a strong fourth quarter and pulled away.

 

Carson Straile and Aidan Joa Hall made some big plays on offense,  but Cumberland were not going to be denied in this game and improve to 4-0.

 

The Kodiaks fall to 4-1 and will play their final regular season home game next Thursday against Ahtahkakoop, 3:30 at the Creighton Field.

 

 

Vockler Is Back

Fresh off the big trade with the Estevan Bruins yesterday when the Bombers landed Alex Von Sprecken, the Maroon and White made another big announcement today.

 

Forward Jacob Vockler has rejoined the Bombers after giving the North American league a try.

 

Vockler was one of the Bombers most gifted offensive  players last season where he put up  38 points in 52 regular season games.

 

Jacob was fantastik in the playoffs contributing 12 points in 18 games and added 4 goals in 5 games at the Centennial Cup.

 

Vockler says he is very much looking forward to his return to the Bombers.  " It feels good to be back in Flin Flon. Got a warm welcome from the boys and I am excited to be here. We have some unfinished business and look forward to being back in the same situation with a chance to win it all."

 

Vockler makes his return this Friday when the Kindersley Klippers come to town.

Kodiaks Travel To Cumberland House

The Creighton Kodiaks will head off to play Cumberland House today in their stiffest test of the season.

 

Creighton is 4-0 after knocking off Pinehouse 54 to 20 last Wednesday. Cumberland House is also undefeated on the season and sit at 3-0.

 

Both teams are very similar with high octave offenses and neither team has really been challenged this season.

 

This will be a very good test for the Kodiaks this afternoon as Cumberland has a large veteran group with many grade 12’s and are also a big physical team.

 

Kickoff is 3:30 MB time.

 

Creighton will close out the regular season next week VS  Ahtahkakoop on Wednesday October the 12th.  Playoffs will start on October the 19th.

Bombers Land Von Sprecken

The Flin Flon Bombers have made a major upgrade to their team today.

 

The Maroon and White have landed 20 year old defenseman Alex Von Sprecken from the defending SJHL  champion Estevan Bruins for a PDF.

 

Von Sprecken was a key piece in the Bruins run to the league title when they beat the Bombers in an exciting 7 game series to claim their first title in over 20 years.

 

He scored the tieing goal in game 5 with less than 4 seconds remaining in regulation which allowed the Bruins to come back and win the  game in OT.

 

This was the biggest goal of his career and one of the biggest in the Bruins run to the cup.

 

Head Coach and GM of the Flin Flon Bombers, Mike Reagan had this to say after his team landed Von Sprecken. " We are extremely excited about it and when a player like that becomes available,  it is very tough not to take a run at him. I talked to Alex after we made the deal and he is very excited to be a Bomber. He has lots of  experience playing here in the Whitney Forum against us,  so he knows what to expect. He thinks it is a great fit and so do we."

 

Von Sprecken will arrive in Flin Flon tonight and will practise with his new team-mates tomorrow,  before dressing for his first game as a Bomber against Kindersley on Friday.

Richmond Named Defenseman Of The Week

Selects Drop First Two Games In Thompson

The PBCN Selects played their first two ever regular season  games this past weekend in the Keystone Junior B Hockey League.

 

The Selects travelled up to Thompson to battle the Nelson House Flames who are regarded as one of the top teams in the league.

 

PBCN had a good showing in both games losing the first game 5 to 2 on Saturday. Team Captain Tyler Bird scored the first goal ever in franchise history , with the other marker coming from Leon  Natomagen.

 

On Sunday,  the Selects actually led 4 to 3 late in the third, but a late penalty cost them and the Flames tied the game and eventually rallied for the 5 to 4 win.

 

Flames goalie Braedin Melsted was the difference as PBCN heavilly out shot them yesterday afternoon.

 

The Select goals came from Kik Bear who had 2, Leon Natamogan and Dwayne McKenzie.

 

PBCN is back on the road this weekend, making their way to Cross Lake before hosting Norway House in the home opener on October the 15th at the Whitney Forum.

Broncos 2 Bombers 1

The Flin Flon Bombers were less than 3 minutes away from upsetting the Humboldt Broncos last night at the Whitney Forum.

 

Humboldt who  hasn't lost a single game this year managed to finally get a puck past Laser Hume,  when Ethan Zielke snuck a shot through lots of traffic in front of the Bomber  net.

 

The Bronco's took advantage of a late powerplay and also pulled the goalie to go 6 on 4.

 

Humboldt carried the momentum into the extra period and scored at the 3:12 mark when Xavier Roy converted a nice pass from Noah Barlage.

 

The Bronco's now sit with a perfect record of 8-0 and are first overall in the SJHL.

 

Flin Flon's lone goal was scored by Jeremi Tremblay who picked up his third of the season midway through the second.

 

Final shots were 43 to 31 in favour of Humboldt.

 

The Bombers were trying for their fourth straight win after a hard fought 4 to 3 win over Nipawin the night before.

 

After last night, the Bombers record is  4-1-1-1 and are first in the Sherwood Division , two points up on Melfort and 3 up on Laronge and Nipawin.

 

Flin Flon will now have 4 days off before preparing for the Kindersley Klippers who make their way to the Whitney Forum for a pair of games this weekend.

 

We will broadcast Saturday's game on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10.
