Cook was picked up back in October from the Bonnyville Pontiacs of the AJHL,  and picked up 6 points including 5 goals in 16 games with the Bombers.

Duperreault Does It Again

Another big game for Cole Duperreault who picked up his second hat-trick in less than  a week, and helped the Flin Flon Bombers collect a big win.

 

The Bombers were trying to make good on a tough loss to the Melfort Mustangs the night before.

 

It wasn't easy,  but the Bombers pulled out the 5 to 4 win in OT in the rematch Saturday.

 

Zac Somers gave the Mustangs a 1-0 lead midway through the first and that held up til the third.

 

The two teams came out like gangbusters and combined for 7 goals in the final period.  Duperreault led the way for Flin Flon  with a pair, his 17th and 18th of the year.

 

Jaxon Martens scored his 9th and Jeremi Tremblay his 13th.

 

It looked like the Bombers would win it in regulation with a 4 to 2 lead late in the third.

 

Like I have said many times, the Melfort Mustangs are a good team and play well at the Whitney Forum. With the goalie pulled, Melfort scored twice in the final 3 minutes courtesy of  Zac Somers and Ryan Duguay.

 

That was Somers second of the game and third of the weekend.

 

It was off to OT, and the Bombers were determined that they would not let this one slip away.

 

Jeremi Tremblay continues to impress every single game and took the puck up the ice and fought off two Melfort defenders. He got behind the Melfort net and made the pass out front to Cole Duperreault who did the rest blowing the shot past James Venne.

 

This would complete the hat-trick and give Duperreault his league leading 19th of the season.

 

Flin Flon gets the two points and improve to 16-6-2-1. They also take over sole possesion of first place in the Sherwood with 35 points.

 

That is two more than Laronge, but the Wolves have a game in hand. Melfort picks up 3 out of 4 points on the weekend and are starting to challenge with 29 points.

 

The Bombers will be back on the road this weekend in Melville and Yorkton, this Friday and Saturday.

 

102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com will have both games starting with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 both nights.

 

U-13 Bombers Win Tournament In The Pas

Congratulations to the U-13 Kinsmen Bombers who were in the Pas for the Wescana Tournament this past weekend.

 

The Bombers went 3-0-1 in the round robin to finish first place and a showdown against the host team from the Pas for the Gold Medal.

 

The Bombers played another great game and took the final 2 to 1 to win the tournament and finish undefeated.

 

The Peds Threads U-11 Bombers were in Nipawin for their first tournament of the year and had a very good showing.

 

Flin Flon beat Martensville and Nipawin handilly in the round robin and tied the Pas heading into the playoff round.

 

The Bombers dropped their Semi- Final to Thompson and would play the B- Final against the Pas.

 

Flin Flon prevailed in a thrilling fashion when Cohen Banting scored the game winner with just over a minute remaining in regulation, as the Bombers won 2 to 1. Lennox Ggnon stood stall in net.

Bombers Lose To Mustangs Add Pearce

Not the way the Flin Flon Bombers wanted to start the weekend in Melfort.

 

The Bombers travelled to the Northern Lights Palace to kick off the home and home and ended up dropping a 6 to 3 decision.

 

Things started well , with Kylynn Olafson and Cole Tanchuk scoring their first goals of the season to give the Bombers a quick 2 to 0 lead.

 

Melforts's leading scorer Zac Somers answered the second Bomber goal and the Mustangs took over.

 

They out scored the Bombers 5 to 1 from that point and picked up their 5th straight win.

 

Somers would add one more, with a pair from Dawson Leroux, Cameron Emigh and Aidyn Hutchinson.

 

Jaeden Mercier scored the other Bomber goal.

 

The Mustangs were finally able to get to Laser Hume after scoring just one goal in the two previous meetings. Hume gave up 4 goals on 25 shots with a couple of empty netters.

 

Joel Favreau was back in net for Melfort and was solid with 36 saves on 39 shots.

 

A big win for the Mustangs who all of a sudden have crept to within 5 points of Flin Flon and Laronge. If the Mustangs can win the rematch in Flin Flon tonight, the deficit would only be 3 points.

 

The Bombers will get a boost with the addition of Rylan Pearce who was reassigned to Flin Flon from the Kamloops Blazers of the WHL.

 

Pearce only dressed in 8 games with Kamloops picking up two assists. He is expected to dress tonight.

 

Don't forget it is the Northland Ford Teddy Bear Toss tonight. So please bring a teddy bear or unwrapped toy to donate towards the Salvation Army Christmas hamper drive. You can throw the teddy bears on the ice after the Bombers score the first goal.

Bombers Hit The Battlefords

We are just a few hours away from one of the most anticipated SJHL games of the season.

 

Flin Flon has made their way to the Battlefords for a showdown with the number one team in the country.

 

The Battleford Stars are on an incredible run that has seen them pick up points in 21 straight games. Battleford has yet to lose in regulation and are a staggering 18-0-2-1 to start the year.

 

Battleford can fill the net as they are the only team to score over a 100 goals and have also given up the least amount at just 46. Flin Flon has given up th second least amount of 48.

 

Flin Flon is certainly no slouch and make their way to the Battlefords with a record of 14-4-1-1 which is first in the Sherwood and second overall, tied with Humboldt.

 

This will also be the first meeting between these two teams since the Bombers eliminated the Stars in last years playoffs.

 

Who could ever forget the way it went down. Battleford took the first two at home quite handilly, and had the Bombers on the ropes. Flin Flon went home for game three and their whole season turned around.

 

Over 1100 fans showed up and the Bombers caught fire winning the next four and then went on to beat Humboldt in 5. This would set up the historic league final against Estevan.

 

It was one of the most impressive playoff runs for this historic franchise and Battleford will have revenge on their minds.

 

Due to some arena problems at the Civic Centre,  tonight's game will be played in nearbye Wilkie. puck drop is still 7:30.

 

Tomorrow's game will be played at the Battleford Arena with a face off start at 2pm.

Bombers Impressive In Nipawin

After a bit of a rough start, the Flin Flon Bombers put things together for a solid 4 to 1 win last night in Nipawin.

 

Flin Flon looked back on their heels for the first 5 minutes but battled through bus legs and got their game going midway through the first.

 

After a scoreless first period, the Bombers opened the scoring on the powerplay when Jeremi Tremblay took a nice pass from Jaeden Mercier to score his 11th of the season.

 

Tremblay has been on a tear with 10 points in his last 7 games.

 

New comer Ethan Mercer would score in his Bomber debut, when he banged in a rebound just over a minute later which stood up as the game winner.

 

Alexi Sylvestre and Cole Duperreault with his team leading 13th of the year,  added a couple of insurance goals in the third period.

 

Reid Mackay had the lone goal for Nipawin when he scored on the powerplay midway through the second.

 

Specialty teams were a factor once again with the Bombers going 2 for 6 and continue to have the league's best PP at 28.6 %. Nipawin finished 1 for 4.

 

This was a huge win for Harmon Laser Hume who stopped 32 out of 33 shots and was able to beat his former team at the Cage for the first time.

 

Laser Hume avenged his 5 to 2 setback in Nipawin on September the 17th.

 

This is a huge 2 points that will put the Bombers back into first place in the Sherwood Division with a record of 14-4-1-1. They jump ahead of Laronge by 1 point with 30 and still have two games in hand.

 

This will also give the Maroon and White express some momentum as they head to the Battlefords to battle the number one team in the country.

 

The Stars are still unbeaten in regulation and have points in 21 straight games.

 

Due to some problems at Battleford's rink they will play in Wilkie on Friday and move to another rink in Battleford on Saturday  with a start time of 2pm.

Bombers Move Antsey Bring In Forward

As the Flin Flon Bombers prepare for one of their most competitive weeks of the season they were busy on the trade front yesterday.

 

Head Coach and GM, Mike Reagan announced that they have moved popular 20 year old forward Ethan Antsey.

 

Antsey, who came over from the AJHL last season,  was with the Bombers for their impressive playoff run which included a trip to the Centennial Cup in Estevan.

 

Antsey who is one of the hardest workers on the team did struggle to put points up with just one assist in 14 games and became part of a numbers game.

 

With the addition of 20 year old Ethan Mercer, the Bombers had maxed out at 20's and moved Antsey to Melville for a PDF.

 

Flin Flon is excited about the addition of Mercer who comes to Northern Manitoba from Olds of the AJHL. Mercer has 4 points including 3 goals with the Grizzlies this year.

 

Mercer did suit up with the Brookes Bandits  last year who won the Centennial Cup last Spring and the Bombers are excited to add his championship petigree.

 

He will make his Bomber debut tonight in Nipawin.

Yorkton rebounds On Friday.

It was a much different looking Yorkton Terrier team on Friday night.

 

The Bombers spanked the Terriers 8 to 3 on Thursday and put up over 50 shots to pick up their 13th win of the season.

 

On Friday, Yorkton played a much better first period and their PK and goaltender led them to a very important  victory.

 

Yorkton starting goalie, Caleb Allen was nothing short of fantastik making 49 saves and was definately his team's best player on Friday night.

 

Allen didn't need a lot of offense as he was really dialled in.

 

Brett Butz opened up the scoring for Yorkton in the first period and they got a couple of goals late in the third courtesy of Greg Nelson and Clay Sleeva.

 

Nelson's was the game winner.

 

Jaxon Martens was the only Bomber to find the back of the net, when he got a rebound early in the second. 

 

Specialty teams were once again the big story, with the Terriers killing off all 5 Bomber man advantages. They gave up 4 powerplay goals on Thursday.

 

Yorkton finished up 1 for 4 with the man advantage.

 

It was a costly loss for Flin Flon who all of a sudden find themselves second in the Sherwood Division.

 

The red hot Laronge Ice Wolves who beat Yorkton 6 to 1 on Saturday have taken over first in the Sherwood Division with 29 points. The Bombers sit second with 28 but do have 3 games in hand.

 

This is a very big week for the Maroon and White who will play 4 games on the road.

Bombers Take Down Terriers

The Flin Flon Bombers didn't miss a beat despite being off the ice for over a week.

 

The Yorkton Terriers made their way to town last night  and the Bombers were anything but gracious hosts and came out flying.

 

Flin Flon chased Terrier starting netminder Tommy Bouchard and put up 4 goals before the game was even 10 minutes old.

 

The final score was 8 to 3 and lots of Bombers had multiple point nights including Jacob Vockler who led the way with two goals and one assist.

On Sunday, The Selects hung in there early and trailed 3 to 2 after 1, but the offense dried up and couldn't get much going for the final two periods.

 

The Juniors controlled the final two periods out scoring PBCN 4 to 1.

 

Caden Joanis, Leon Natomagen and Embey Roberts scored the Select Goals.

 

Peguis out shot PBCN 35 to 24.

 

After the weekend the Selects will drop to 4-6-0-1 and sit fourth overall. Peguis improves to a league best 10 and 1.

 

PBCN will next see action this weekend against the OCN Storm.

Selects Host Peguis

After a 12 day break the PBCN Selects will return to action this weekend at the Whitney Forum.

 

PBCN will be playing at home for just the second time this season ,  as they will host the first place Peguis Juniors and defending league champs.

 

The Selects are the only team to beat Peguis who come to town with an 8-1 record. PBCN squeeked out a 4 to 3 win in Peguis  back on October the 23rd.

 

The Selects are fourth over all at 4-4-0-1 which is pretty good when you consider that most of their games have been played on the road.

 

Nik Bear and Dwayne McKenzie continue to lead the Selects in scoring. Bear sits fifth overall in points with 26 including 17 goals.

 

McKenzie has 21 points in 9 games including 12 goals.

Bombers Pull Out 2 to 1 Win in Melfort

The Flin Flon Bombers battled the elements and Melfort Mustangs enroute to their fourth straight win at the Northern Lights  Palace last night.

 

Flin Flon battled good ole mother nature including some freezing rain but made it to Melfort and played a heck of a first period enroute to the 2 to 1 win.

 

The Bombers came out and out shot the Mustangs 13 to 6 and picked up the only goal when Jaeden Mercier picked up a rebound off of James Venne's pad.

 

That would stand up til early in the third , when Wyatt Cook was left alone in front of the Mustangs net and wired his fourth past Venne just under the cross bar.

 

Melfort would pull closer with a nice effort from Jacob Hufty, when he streaked past the Bomber defense and went in alone and tucked a shot under Laser Hume's pad.

 

It looked like the Bombers would restore the two goal lead when Jeremi Tremblay appeared to score his 9th, but the goal was called off for goalie interference.

 

Things then went from bad to worse when Cole Duperreault was called for a 5 minute major for abuse of an official.

 

I did see the video and it appears that he did catch the official with his stick but did not  look intentional to me. We will see what the league office has to say.

 

This put the Bombers down for 5 minutes late in the game with a one goal lead. Flin Flon managed to percevere and killed off the major due to some big saves from Hunter Laser Hume.

 

Laser Hume looked calm and was lights out once again for his 9th win of the year and ended up with 33 saves.

 

The Bombers fired 26 shots at James Venne who was making a rare start for Joel Favreau who wasn't dressed.

 

Flin Flon leads the season series two games to none and these teams will meet in a home and home later this month, November the 25th and 26th.

 

A good way to kick off a 8 day break for Flin Flon who improve to 12-3-1-1 and lead Laronge  by 5 points for first place in the Sherwood Division.

 

The Bombers won't play again til next Thursday and Friday when Yorkton comes to town.

 

Melfort slips to 7-8-4-0 and they don't play til next Friday.
